Joey Lawrence blinded on set of 'Melissa & Joey'
Things at Melissa & Joey aren't starting well for Joey Lawrence: The show is apparently so awful he tore his cornea on one of the scripts. That's quite a marketing department you've got there, Joe.
"Hey my tweet peeps. Sorry for being AWOL. I got hit in the eye yesterday mrng by accident in the set and it ripped my cornea," he wrote via his Twitter account, @joeylawrence, on Thursday. Whoa. "Trying to heal So I can do the show tmrw and be ok! Love you all and I'll be in touch very soon xoxo."
TMZ expands the account by saying Joey was standing behind Melissa Joan Hart when another, unnamed actor was holding a script and hugged Melissa. The razor-sharp paper of death then jab Joey in the eye, resulting in his debilitating injury (actually, he will be back on the set Saturday). We say write into the show that he gets pink eye and call it a day.
