Wonder how ABC Family is going to feel about this one. Melissa & Joey star Joey Lawrence is moonlighting... as a stripper. And it's not for a Lifetime television movie. The 36-year-old is transitioning his made-for-tv talent to the stage, and he's sure to make a bunch of lovely ladies lucky. According to TMZ, Lawrence has signed on for a hot new gig with the Chippendales, a not-so-family-friendly move for the fine father of two. The bald and buff sitcom star will don the signature bowtie this summer, but that's about it. Lawrence's rep tells TMZ that Lawrence plans to bare all from June 7-June 24 at the Rio in Las Vegas. Oh, besides getting naked, he'll also sing and dance. So anybody looking to see more of the ABC family star can get their fill during the star-studded strip show. By assuming the role of MC, Lawrence is following in the footsteps of some pretty big names. Other celebrity MCs include 98 Degrees singer Jeff TImmons and former Bachelor heartthrob Jake Pavelka.
