What fresh hell is this? It seems that before she was a multi-tasking, Skinny Girl Margarita-mix-making, talk show-having, reality TV star, Bethenny Frankel worked as a PA on the set of “Saved By The Bell.” That’s where she met acting luminary and Professionally Creepy Dude Dustin Diamond. This photo is obviously ground zero for cultural herpes or something.
Oh dear, college pictures of Anthony Weiner in ladywear have surfaced. I think we should thank The National Enquirer for uncovering Screech’s long lost twin. No wonder he was texting pictures of his d**k, he was trying to compensate for being a big nerdball in college. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »
Well, this is really sad, you guys. Dustin Diamond, the twerp who played dorky Screech on “Saved By The Bell,” appeared on Fox News yesterday to promote his book, Behind The Bell
, a tell-all about the dirt behind the scenes of the ’90s teen sitcom. I don’t know whether to feel more disturbed by his geometric facial hair, his strange Dr. Evil laugh, or his obvious bitterness over his former castmates’ (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez) relative success. You may remember several years ago when Diamond faced foreclosure on his home in Port Washington, WI, a suburb of Milwaukee, and sold t-shirts
for $15 with “I paid 15 dollars to help Screeech [sic] save his house” emblazoned on the front. He explained he had to include an extra “e” in Screeech because of copyright laws. Later it came out that his house was never at risk for foreclosure and the whole thing had been a publicity stunt! This wasn’t quite as bad as the publicity stunt he pulled later that year when a sex tape — probably leaked by him — showing him ejaculating on an apple pie hit the internet. The guy’s such a hot desperate mess, the juiciest “dirt” in his tell-all seems to be that cast members allegedly took steroids while doing the show. “You can see about 25 pounds of growth,” Diamond screeches, referring to Gosselaar, who happened to star on the series and its spin-off between the ages of 15-21 when guys tend to, you know, grow a lot. Dudes, I think I smell a bestseller. [via BuzzFeed

Jimmy Fallon is going to be so pissed when he sees the newest issue of People magazine. After repeatedly
begging asking to hold a reunion on his late night show, the cast of “Saved By The Bell” decided to come together on the cover of People. In all fairness, Mario Lopez confessed that People had the 20th anniversary reunion idea before Jimmy and has worked for over a year putting together a feature deserving of the mega-popular ’90s sitcom. And really, can you argue with A.C. Slater?
Even though it’s been 20 years since Zack Morris was “Saved By The Bell,” the entire cast looks as happy and oddly fresh-faced as they did back at Bayside High School. Except for everyone’s favorite geek—Screech. No, Dustin Diamond wasn’t late to the shoot. He was asked not to come. [People/NY Daily News] Keep reading »
