Joey Lawrence: 'Didn't want' to be on 'DWTS'
Posted August 3, 2012
"Peeps, I need you!"
Joey Lawrence tweeted out a plea for votes last month to be part of the Dancing With the Stars All-Stars cast.
But now he's singing a different tune.
"I didn't want to do it," Lawrence said Wednesday at the Total Recall premiere in L.A. and took issue with former winners being included in the mix.
"Emmitt [Smith]'s doing it again. He's got two Super Bowl rings, maybe he needs two mirror balls. Why would you put [six] winners in there, ABC? What are you doing?" the actor told Us Weekly, referring to returning champs Helio Castroneves, Shawn Johnson, Drew Lachey, Apolo Anton Ohno and Kelly Monaco. "It was a lot of fun, but I don't need to go back."
And he told People, "It should be all runner-ups. I don't think any champions back in the mix makes any sense."
