Meagan Good is still going with the excuse that she mistakenly bleached her skin 5 shades lighter.

Back in May, a fan remarked on Meagan's skin bleaching, writing: "Meagan looked better dark skin... She not so pretty anymore she looks average... But her dark skin was above average... Why did she Bleach."

The 38-year-old actress responded: "I didn't Queen. A (unbeknownst to me) unlicensed aesthetician gave me a product to correct a sun mark on my forehead that messed up [my] skin."

In a recent interview with faith-based, The Same Room, Meagan said, "I went to an unlicensed esthetician who convinced me that I needed to get rid of some sun damage. And a few months later, I am like five shades lighter than I actually am and it was a really traumatic experience because I really trusted the person."

Meagan claimed not to know her skin was getting lighter and lighter over time. And her husband didn't notice either.

"I kept asking her through the process, like 'Is this what's supposed to happen?' She's like, 'Oh it'll lift and it'll come back.' I got to the place of realizing I don't know if it's going to come back, I think I've been bamboozled."

When her followers started clowning her and bloggers posted before and after photos, Meagan began to feel the sting of shame.

"It was super embarrassing and super painful especially in the climate we're in as black women," she said.

"I'm over-confident when I look in the mirror, I like what I see. And to feel like someone stole that from me and to feel like I was misled and now there's commentary on it and people thinking I don't love myself, that's something I can get through but when I'm thinking about these young girls, these young brown-skinned girls who are thinking that I've changed myself and what kind of ideas are putting into their head, that just broke my heart."

Meagan apparently continued to use the product for years not realizing she was getting lighter and lighter until she started burning. She said that's when she stopped using the product.

"By the grace of God only; I'm about 80% through recovery and regaining my color daily. To be honest it was beyond painful and traumatic experience because I would never wish that on anybody. I'd really appreciate if you wouldn't continue to spread assumptions and rumors. Gobless you [sic]."

Actress Meagan Good was spotted arriving at a hair salon in Beverly Hills. Meagan spoke her mind on the news that former President Barack Obama asked a Caucasian woman to marry him before he met Michelle Obama. "Oh… Nice," Meagan responded. Then she suggested that if Barack Obama had married his white ex-girlfriend, it wouldn't have killed him at the polls. Obama's ex-girlfriend, Sheila Miyoshi Jager, claims was "hell-bent on marrying an African-American woman to benefit his political career." But we already knew that.
