Today's Evil Beet Gossip



“We weren’t in rehab and Mr. Belding wasn’t my crack dealer.”

Mark-Paul Gosselaar, responding to accusations Dustin “Screech” Diamond makes in his latest attempt to salvage his finances and his fame with no thought of salvaging his dignity. Screech has “written” a “memoir” called Behind the Bell, about his days on the set of Saved by the Bell. Us Weekly has a sneak peak at all the fabricated dirt:

He also alleges costar Mark Paul Gosselaar — who played popular Zack Morris — used steroids before production started on 1994’s short-lived Saved by the Bell: The College Years.

“He suddenly exploded with manliness, loading 25 pounds of muscle on his once-scrawny frame in, oh, about a month,” says Diamond, who is not in touch with any of his costars. …

Diamond — who filed for bankruptcy in 2001 and had his own sex tape released in 2006 — goes on to say his costars hooked up off-camera.

“If Kelly [Tiffani Thiessen] was interested in Slater [Mario Lopez] one week, then backstage there was a lot going between them in Mario [Lopez]’s room,” he tells the new Us Weekly. “Then, if Jessie [Elizabeth Berkley] kisses Zack, then you know Elizabeth Berkley is going in Mark-Paul’s room.”

I don’t know how much if any of this is even remotely true, but, even if it is, like, let me get this straight: These uber-attractive teenagers who had basically no social circle or life outside of that cast hooked up with one another? Often switching partners? GASP. I mean, I’d always surmised that some crazy shit went on in that greenroom, but teenagers hooking up? I’m sickened, just sickened. I have to buy the book now so I can find out what other juicy tidbits are in there. I bet one time Elizabeth Berkeley asked Tiffani Thiessen if she could borrow a tampon and Tiffani was all like, “Sure, but I thought you just finished your period?” and then Elizabeth Berkeley was like, “Oh, no, I’m not on my period. I just need this one to masturbate with.” BOOM!

  • This all strikes me as just a lot of envy. Little Dustin SAW Elizabeth and Mark-Paul go in a room together. He saw Tiffani and Mario flirting by the crafts table. He saw Mark-Paul get buff one summer. But geeky little Dustin could not have any of these things, and he resented it, and he still resents it, and on top of that he resents the fact that these people still have careers and he does not. So he wrote this book.

  • I went to High School with Mark Paul Gosslar. He was not hurting for girls. He got PLENTY of attention around the neighborhood. Part of the reason he gained a lot of weight towards the end of HS was that he was working out and drinking a lot. Typical teenage stuff.

  • Dustin Diamond has ZERO Dignity or self respect, much less any respect for anyone else. After his supposed sex tape and antics on Celebrity Fit Club, it was thought he was the low of the lows. Could it be possible for anyone to go lower than even that? This book proves that yes, the Unimaginable is possible.

    Dustin Diamond = YUCK

  • I painfully viewed Celebrity Fit Club for a couple of shows and noticed Dustin Diamond get drunk and tell another contestant how “Jews” ruled television and he “knew” powerful people in the industry and he would only have to make a few phone calls and he could get production shut down the very next day! He was pathetic, no one wanted to listen to him, much less be near him. He is a disgusting, irreverant man who is whoring-out his past in a desperate attempt to make a buck. He needs to go away!! Bebot has refined perception of this scumbag.
