Mario Lopez Not Joining DWTS All-Stars

Season 3 runner-up says he is too busy to compete again

Mario Lopez Not Joining DWTS All-Stars

Even though his name was one of the first tossed around, Mario Lopez will not be competing on Dancing With The Stars All Stars, the star says.

“I’m really busy, so I don’t think I’ll be able to do it,” the season three runner-up told TV Guide. ”I don’t watch the show and didn’t even watch when I was on it. My mom wanted me to do it.”


TV Guide is hinting at the fact that Mario may have been removed from the list after he announced on Live! With Kelly in April that he had already been approached for the All Stars season – even though ABC had not officially announced the season. Let that be a lesson to all of us – never spill the news ahead of the network.

Are you bummed that Mario won’t be a part of the DWTS All Stars cast? Who would you like to see return to the ballroom next season?
