03 – From Lance’s MySpace: My Birfday!
Since I can not reply to most of the emails, I just want to say thank you very much for all the birthday wishes!!
I actually like getting older (for now). 28 is a good one though because you can still say you are in your 20′s and sound young– but have a better understanding of this crazy world.
Many have asked what I am doing to celebrate so here goes—-
Tonight I am having a lil fun poker tourney at the house for some friends, take it a little easy so I can last the weekend. Friday night Pink vodka (which is oh so good) is throwing me a nice party at my friend’s new place called Parc. That will be nice because I will get to see many people i only get to see once a year!
Then it’s off to Vegas! Woo hoo! So many things are going on this weekend I dont know what Ill end up doing— there is the De la hoya fight, Britney is performing, another friend’s Bday, another friend’s bachelor party, etc! I am tired just thinking about this.
So that’s it– have some really cool projects to tell you all about when the time comes. Should be in a few weeks. And how freakin good has Joey done on Dancin’!!
Have fun and be safe! LB

04 – Joey and Kym (and Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough) are attend the annual Barnstable Brown Gala on Derby Eve, Lexington, Kentucky. From USA Today: Dancing With the Stars contestants were having fun, but not too much fun. The slimmed down Fatone, one of a handful of celebs to run across the muddy grass to sign autographs for fans, and his pro dance partner, Kym Johnson, spent Friday rehearsing and planned to rehearse two more hours Saturday morning before heading to the track. Which horse does he like in the 133rd run for the roses? “Nobiz Like Shobiz,” he said with a grin. Apolo Ohno and his partner, Julianne Hough, did a few steps for photographers. Also from USA Today about the gala: Fatone was flanked by [Gene] Simmons and Regina King as Michael McDonald performed I Heard It Through the Grapevine. Later, Fatone took the stage with Lachey to sing Celebrate and Superstition.
Joey and Kym were also photographed afterwards at Stuff Magazine’s party, hosted bt Taryn Manning.

07 – Joey and Kym perform the waltz (for a score of 26) and the mambo (for a score of 29) on DWTS, and end up second in scores for the night. Chris is in the audience. From People.com: Chris Kirkpatrick sat front and center and watched his former ‘N Sync partner Joey Fatone perform. “I heard from my family about it and they said, ‘Can’t you make it out there to see him?’ So I came,” Kirkpatrick says, noting that he’s not surprised that Fatone is connecting with fans. “He’s a character. It’s funny to see him with the outfits he wears. When we were on tour we could always rely on Joey to have the funniest outfits of all time. There was never a dull moment with Joey.” Speaking of clothing, Kirkpatrick and several friends in Fatone’s fan section wore homemade airbrushed t-shirts emblazoned with Fatone’s face (a photo of him sticking out his tongue) and the words “Vote For Joey.”
07 – JC photographed partying in Atlanta
07 – Joey spotted leaving Parc, asked his opinion on Paris Hilton’s sentence
08 – Via nsyncline.com: One thing not on Joey FAtone’s slate any longer is the redo of “The Odd Couple” he and former `NSync mate Lance Bass were set to do. “We had the script and everything, but the CW canned it, which was kind of odd because the script actually was very funny,” he says. “I was totally surprised by how funny it really was. But they’re not doing it anymore, and I’m like `Whatever. I’m moving on. I’m going for something else altogether.”
08 – Joey and Kym end up in the bottom two on DWTS. From People.com: As one of the two lowest rated teams this time around, Joey Fatone and partner Kym Johnson are dancing by a sequined thread. “In a way this is a good thing,” says Fatone. “It gives us a good kick in the butt. We have a lot of work to do.” What was he planning to do after Tuesday’s show? Maybe a stiff drink and then back to the studio. And Kym? “Back to the studio for sure. We really have to wow them next time.”

09 – From Lance’s MySpace: From a myspacer
(From Jessica- and i agree!)
I have one thing to say to all you *NSYNC fans out there…HOW THE HELL DID WE LET JOEY FALL INTO THE BOTTOM TWO?!
C’mon people! I know there are still millions of crazy *NSYNC fans out there, so there should be no reason that he should have been on the chopping block this week. Let’s never let that happen again, and let’s make sure he wins the competition.
His dance routines with his partner Kym have consistently been both entertaining and technically good. They have been at or near the top of the Judge’s Leaderboard every single week, so what that tells me is that all of you fans out there aren’t taking the time to vote! WTF?!
It’s very simple…call toll-free 1-800-VOTE4-05 (1-800-868-3405) every Monday night during the live show (and up to 1/2 an hour afterwords) at 8pm EST standard time. Or, you can vote online at www.abc.com .
We are now in the semi-final rounds, and there are only 4 couples left. It is imperative that we vote in the next coming weeks!
Spread the word by copying and pasting this message to your blogs and bulletins, and as comments on fellow *NSYNCers myspace pages, and let other *NSYNC fans know that we need to push for more votes.
Let’s make Joey Fatone “Dancing With The Stars” Season 4 Champion!

23/24? – From NY Magazine: Things were predictably bacchanalian aboard the Austrian Airlines flight carrying the design team Heatherette and friends—including Tinsley Mortimer, ex–’N Sync–er JC Chasez, and Amanda Lepore—to the Life Ball, a massive open-air AIDS fund-raiser in Vienna. At the preflight check-in there was surprise and concern that passengers might be asked to provide prescriptions for the abundance of Adderal and Percocet in carry-ons, and worry that the airline might object to smoking (it didn’t). The other ex–’N Sync–er onboard, Lance Bass, estimated that twenty people either joined or renewed their membership in the Mile High Club that night, but declined to say if he was one of them.
And from the NY Post about the flight: Lance Bass accidentally smashed a champagne flute against a fellow partygoer’s mouth while dancing wildly, thus requiring stitches. It wasn’t until the next morning that the smashee, a makeup staffer on the trip, realized glass shards were embedded in his bleeding lip. Luckily, a dentist and volunteer organizer named Fernando was on hand to provide stitches…. Bass hopes to renew his efforts to fly to the moon after completing his memoir, “Out of Sync.”…. “This could be No. 1,” surmised Bass, as he ranked the trip among his craziest of flights.
Also, Lance meets Pedro Andrade on the flight, according to an interview he did with People at the New York premiere of the movie Hairspray in mid-July

29 – New radio release date for JC’s single “You Ruined Me”
29 – From the Village Voice: Everyone’s spectacular at the Tuesday night party Beige too, especially… when Lucy Lawless turned up (“to enable my gay friend,” she said, laughing) and so did Lance Bass (whose chumming it up with a Brazilian hottie in Vienna led to false items that J.C. Chasez hooked up with designer Esteban Cortazar). Lawless was in town to perform her rock show called Come to Mama, and no, she wasn’t toying with wearing a babydoll minidress, but she was concerned about what to do with her hair. Rather than even ask if she was performing with fireworks, I sardonically suggested she talk to Bass for coiffing advice, and she was perfectly willing to do so, having assumed he must be a hairdresser! (Ah, boyband fame is more fleeting than an enema.)
31 – Gossip from “The Gatecrasher” in the NY Daily News: Which still-closeted former boy-bander was making sure nobody got pictures of him with his handsome Spanish escort at a recent European charity event? JC?
