The more footage I see from Lifetime’s Saved By The Bell film, the more tragic it looks. The network’s nostalgic look back at one of the 90s most popular teen series looks unflattering for all parties involved. The cast look like busted-up versions of the original Bayside High crew, especially the guy playing AC Slater. If I was Mario Lopez, I’d be extremely offended.

With all that being said, I can’t wait to watch it. I love trashy entertainment and this is trashy entertainment at its guiltiest best. Check out the trailer below which features Bell Biv Devoe’s classic smash, “Poison.” The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story is based on interviews with former cast and crew members, as well as Dustin Diamond’s 2009 memoir Behind The Bell. It airs on September 1 at 9 p.m. on Lifetime.

Lifetime’s upcoming Saved By The Bell tell-all looks like it’s going to be one hot mess based on the first preview I.CANT.WAIT!!! This is trashy entertainment at its guiltiest best.

The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story will chronicle all the scandalous behavior that reportedly took place behind the scenes. The movie will be based on interviews with former cast and crew members, as well as Dustin Diamond’s 2009 memoir Behind The Bell. The Screech portrayer shared stories of the cast doing drugs and sleeping with each other.

The first clip shows the cast feuding during a photoshoot. Lisa appears to be jealous of Kelly, while Jessie plays mediator. Meanwhile, Slater humiliates Screech during an impromptu push-up contest. In the background, a television exec states, “Well the networks didn’t kill us, but the hormones might.”

The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story airs September 1 at 9 p.m. on Lifetime. Check out the video below.

In the words of Jesse Spano… “I’m so excited!!!

On the heels of the network’s upcoming Whitney Houston and Aaliyah biopics comes another must-see television event. Lifetime announced a Saved By The Bell tell-all movie is in the works. I love me some trashy entertainment.

After seeing paparazzi shots of Mark-Paul Gosselaar on the beach filming his new show Franklin & Bash, I was inspired to do a Who’d You Rather: Saved By The Bell edition. Now, we can all walk a mile in Kelly Kapowski’s shoes. Choosing between these two is no easy task. I can’t believe we haven’t pitted these two against each other yet. It’s well documented that Mario Lopez still has a bangin’ body, but Gosselaar isn’t looking too shabby himself. Time has been kind to both these studs.

Since his days playing AC Slater on the classic teen sitcom, Lopez has mostly delved in the reality genre. The 39-year-old carved a niche as the go-to person to host a show. Lopez’s hosting credits include Extra, America’s Best Dance Crew and The X Factor. Before hosting, he competed on the third season of Dancing With The Stars where he was the runner-up. Mario also fronted his own reality docu-series, Mario Lopez: Saved By The Baby on VH1. My favorite post-SBTB gig hands down is his guest starring stint on Nip/Tuck. That shower scene was everything ;) Lopez is currently married to Courtney Mazza. The two have a daughter named Gia Francesca and are expecting their second child this September.

Unlike his Saved By The Bell co-star Lopez, the former Zack Morris has mainly stayed in the scripted genre. The 39-year-old actor has multiple television credits. Gosselaar starred in NYPD Blue from 2001-2005. Currently, he’s co-headlining TNT’s Franklin & Bash with Breckin Meyer. Like Mario, Mark-Paul has showed off his juicy butt. You can Google those beautiful screencaps from his TNT show and a guest spot on Showtime’s Weeds. He’s also guest starred on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Happy Endings and Rizzoli & Isles. Mark-Paul is currently married to Catriona McGinn. The two are expecting their first child in September like Lopez. How coincidental is that? Gosselaar has two other children from a previous marriage.

Without further ado, check out the guys from their days on Saved By The Bell to today. Don’t forget to cast your vote at the end.

Now that The Today Show is consistently in second place to Good Morning America, producers will stop at nothing to get an edge up. Even if that comes at the expense of their guests. Case in point, Tiffani Thiessen’s appearance on today’s episode. The 39-year-old actress (can you believe Kelly Kapowski is that old?) was all ready to play a round of trivia with Today staff when she was blindsided by one of her Saved By The Bell co-stars. Cue Mr. Belding aka Dennis Haskins.

It’s clear from the look on her face that Tiffani was unimpressed and uncomfortable with the situation. Even when Haskins comes over to shake her hand, she’s at a loss for words. You’d think after working for several years together, they’d greet each other with a hug. Once the surprise wore off and reality set it, Thiessen was a good sport and played along. I wouldn’t expect anything else from perky Kelly. After all, she was the most popular girl at Bayside High. Check out the mini Saved By The Bell reunion below.

Holy ’90s blast-from-the-past mashup, Batman! She’s All That star Rachel Leigh Cook joins Saved By The Bell hottie, Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Growing Pains legend, Tracey Gold in a hilarious new Funny or Die video tackling the crimes of the craft world and the black market world of In the intro to the video, the site is explained as follows: “To many, it’s the website that women all over America turn to when their poetry careers don’t take off. But beneath it’s crafty veneer lies a teaming, unregulated black market and one person rules it all with an iron fist.”

In the following video, we learn that Etsy is run by a maniacal queen named Ellie Harper (Rachel Leigh Cook). After Maggie Chester (Tracey Gold) is attacked by the Queen of Etsy, FBI Agent Michael Peck (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) investigates. Harper is one woman that you don’t want to mess with. If you’ve seen Savages, she’s essentially Elena, which was Salma Hayek’s character (minus the accent and the drugs).

Where Is Lisa Turtle Now?

In: Random Reads, TV Shows, Tyrell, Videos

Hey Saved By The Bell fans – this post is for you. I recently came across an interview courtesy of The Yo Show which host and comedian Michael Yo where he interviewed the famous Lisa Turtle – cough – I mean Lark Voorhies. It’s hard to believe but, it’s almost been two decades since the show went off the air.

So, where is Lark hanging her hat these days? In the interview, Lark chats with Michael Yo about her production company and the new film she just executive produced, wrote, directed and starred in titled “Hope For Pandora’s Box.” But quickly, Yo sends the conversation in the direction we all know her from.

Michael takes Lisa back to the early days of “Saved By The Bell” and asks her about it’s early beginnings with the Disney Channel before NBC quickly bought the rights in the quick rise to popularity. They talk favorite episodes and address the rumors that she was dating/dated co-star Mark-Paul Gosselaar. One thing you will notice in the interview right way is that Lark Voorhies appearance has drastically changed. Wearing a lipstick that I can only describe as matching her hair color, Lark has come a long way from being the fresh-faced Lisa Turtle well knew and loved. However, her personality hasn’t changed a bit and she even hints a little bit that a “Saved By The Bell” reunion could be in the works. Oh god, I really hope so!

Everyone’s favorite 90s Saturday morning sitcom seems to be experiencing an resurgence lately. Whether it was Jimmy Fallon’s public plea for a “Saved By The Bell” reunion or Urban Outfitters selling Kelly Kapowski t-shirts that have been worn by Justin Bieber and our very own Rich, the Bayside High crew is as popular as ever. Admittedly, I’m a huge fan of the shows and all of it’s acid wash awesomeness. Long live Buddy Bands.

In a very unique marketing move, a short parody music video was filmed to promote “Final Destination 5″ hitting theaters this week. Not sure if it’s an official viral video sanctioned by the studio, but it’s certainly a creative way to promote the horror flick.

The music video, titled “New Romance“, re-imagines the teen sitcom as a cheesy horror flick. It was directed by the lead actor in the latest Final Destination flick, Miles Fisher. Watch as the characters of the show are maimed and killed in the halls of Bayside High or at their favorite diner. There’s even an awesome reference to Jesse Spano’s caffeine pill addiction. Watch the clip and I guarantee you’ll get a chuckle or two.
