Lark Voorhies, AKA Lisa Turtle from Saved by the Bell, has had quite the year. I don’t mean acting-wise, of course. She hasn’t had “quite the year” in the same way that, say, Jennifer Lawrence has had “quite the year.” So let’s catch up with Ms. Voorhies.
In April, she secretly (and quickly) married a man she met off of Facebook. But guys, guess what? It’s not all right, and she’s not saved by the bell, because said Facebook husband, is, oh, a bit of a fugitive. Man, who could have seen something like this coming?
His name is Jimmy Green, and he’s got a warrant out for his arrest. From TMZ:
Jimmy Green is a wanted man in Tuscon, Arizona after a 2012 incident in which he allegedly threatened to kill a store owner. According to a police report — obtained by TMZ — Green allegedly tried to return a cellphone but the owner refused to take it back. Cops say he then became enraged, threw the phone at the wall and said, “I’m going to break the store and kill (you).”
Green was charged with making criminal threats and disorderly conduct. He failed to appear for a court hearing and that’s why the warrant was issued.
Man, you think you know a guy. Okay, seriously though, I do feel kind of bad for her. Her personal life is a mess, the tabloids make fun of her surgically altered face, and she never really got any sort of momentum going after Saved by the Bell ended the way the others did. She wasn’t on the mini reunion on Jimmy Fallon’s show, and she’s never been on Dancing with the Stars. At least she’s not doing as badly as Screech. I don’t think anyone could do as badly as Screech. So hey, at least she’s got that going for her!
