Joey Lawrence on 'Dancing with the Stars: All Stars': "Why the Hell" Would I Sign Up?

"It was a lot of fun, but I don't need to go back," says Lawrence, who questions why six former champs are returning to the show

When Dancing with the Stars premieres this fall with its all-star cast, Joey Lawrence probably won't be tuning in every week.

The former DWTS contestant, who was offered a spot to compete in the all-star lineup this fall, told Us Weekly what he really thinks about the idea of vying for another mirror ball trophy.

"One mirror ball is enough," Lawrence, 36, told Us Weekly at Wednesday's Total Recall premiere in Los Angeles. "[2006 DWTS champ] 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?" he said, referring to returning champions Helio Castroneves, Shawn Johnson, Drew Lachey, Apolo Anton Ohno and Kelly Monaco.

Lawrence, who came in third place during the 2009 season he appeared on the show (Smith and partner Cheryl Burke ultimately won season 3), had no problem declining ABC's offer to pick up his dancing shoes again.

"I didn't want to do it. Why the hell would you do it again and go up against people who didn't win who now can win?" the actor said. "It was a lot of fun, but I don't need to go back."
