What happened to Joey?


I don't know about you, but I used to have a major Joey Lawrence crush when I was about 12 or 13. As memory serves, it was around the second and third season of Blossom when he was at his height of teenage hotness. The hair, the body, his signature "whoa" - he was the total heart-throb package. Well, he has now been relegated to that status that many teen-idols now occupy: the D-List (if you watch Kathy Griffin, you'll know what I mean). He will now be on Dancing With the Stars and oh how time has not been kind. He chopped off all the luxurious hair (the picture to the right is a bit more forgiving than the other ones I have seen) and looks like a younger Telly Savales. Am I the only person that feels really old after seeing these photographs?

You should also know that he is no longer calling himself "Joey". He is now going by "Joe".

Here is a link to Perez Hilton's post on him... I think this may what you are referring to not so forgiving... I didn't even recognize him. (http://www.perezhilton.com/topics/joey_lawrence/he_makes_our_panties_cream_20060823.php)

And yes, it does make me feel old. He used to be so hot... ripped jeans, vests, and all.

Joey was hot! But I don't feel old because I was waay too young for him. :) I love Kathy's D-list show, and I'm really excited for Dancing With the Stars because Sara Evans is going to be on there too!

Kathy's D-list is so funny. I haven't really gotten into Dancing with the Stars... perhaps I will give it a chance. I am truly a reality t.v. whore.

I've never watched Dancing either, but I'll watch it to see her.
