Shaking that Ass For Cash: Joey Lawrence Joins The Chippendales


Yup… it’s confirmed. Or should I say, “Whoa”?
The former Blossom star inked a deal to perform with the Chippendale dancers of Las Vegas … for a special engagement at the Rio from June 7th-24th.
The 36 year-old returned to television in the ABC Family sitcom Melissa & Joey, opposite Melissa Joan Hart in August 2010 and has been dabbling in music and dance his entire professional career. Now Lawrence will be shaking his ass for cash with the legendary, Chippendale dance crew which many hope, will turn in to an extended residency beyond the June dates already scheduled.
Lawrence began his career in Cracker Jack commercials at the age of five and after making guest spots on Silver Spoons and Diff’rent Strokes in the early 80’s, Lawrence landed his first starring role as Joey Donovan on the NBC sitcom Gimme a Break! back in 1983.
For four years from 1991 to 1995, Lawrence played his most famous role, co-starring in the hit NBC TV series Blossom, playing Joey Russo, where is catchphrase “Whoa!”, become extremely popular and brought tons of attention from the ladies.
Lawrence appeared on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars in 2006 placing third with professional dancer Edyta Śliwińska. And in May 2007, he starred as Billy Flynn in the Broadway hit – Chicago before hosting Master of Dance on The Learning Channel, which premiered in 2008.
Former TV Bachelor – Jake Pavelka completed a similar block of performances with the famous male strip show earlier this year, but he only did it as a guest host which begs the question: Will Joey go full monty?
TMZ reports that not-so-little Joey will “sing, dance … the “whole nine yards.”
