Joey Fatone spoke with Ryan Manno of Chicago’s Q101.1 FM at the Staples Center in Los Angeles last week ahead of the Grammy Awards. Fatone was there as a red carpet interviewer for the TV Guide Network and talked about being in ‘Dancing with the Stars’, Danielle Fishel’s relationship with his former *NSYNC bandmate Lance Bass before he came out, challenging himself to break the stereotypes in terms of acting, and his Marc Ecko hoodie.
Talking about his time on ‘Dancing with the Stars’, Joey said, “I don’t know. I guess my whole life I didn’t take things too serious, but I just went, you know what, I can pick stuff up. I don’t know the technique, I don’t really know how to do it, but obviously I’ll put time and effort into it but let’s have some fun with it. Don’t be too serious with it. It paid off thank goodness. I came in second place. I did that and it led me to do hosting jobs. I started for NBC, I did ‘The Singing Bee’ and hosted some TV Guide Network.”
On Lance dating Danielle, he said in response to if she made Bass switch, “Either that or maybe it was a cover-up. Maybe she knew. I don’t know. I should ask her. I never asked her that.”
