"You know what Kelly, they're having a Dancing with the Stars: All-stars this next season, and they called me to do it," Lopez told Kelly Ripa while guest co-hosting Live with Kelly! with Ripa on Wednesday. . "Are you going to do it?" Ripa asked.
"I'd love to do it, but it's so..." Lopez began before Ripa interrupted to insist he had to do it and declare him "the best non-professional dancer I've ever seen."
"Oh, thank you," Lopez replied.
ABC has not commented on whether the show is in fact planning an all-stars edition of Dancing with the Starsfor Fall 2012. However, a show source deemed Lopez's comments premature when contacted by Reality TV World.
Lopez competed on Dancing with the Stars' third season with Karina Smirnoff in late 2006. They finished second to former Dallas Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith and partner Cheryl Burke in the season's finals and subsequently dated for more than 18 months before ending their romantic relationship in June 2008.
Lopez -- who starred in Saved By the Bell as a teen -- is currently engaged to Courtney Mazza, who gave birth to his daughter Gia Francesca Lopez in September 2010. The couple also co-starred in Mario Lopez: Saved By the Baby, a VH1 reality series that documented their preparations for Gia's birth, in 2010.
