Saved by the Bell” is another step closer to a comeback … Mr. Belding himself — aka Dennis Haskins — tells TMZ he’s all for a Bayside High reunion, just days after Mark-Paul Gosselaar said he wasn’t opposed to the idea.
TMZ broke the story … Mark-Paul was in L.A. last weekend … and told our photog, if the upcoming “Boy Meets World” revamp works out, then “maybe we’ll do a reunion as well.”
That’s all it took for Mr. Belding to board the gravy train … telling TMZ, “I have always supported a reunion of any kind including all of us” … before adding, “Honestly, the fans still love us and our show so much … they deserve it!”
As for the rest of the cast, getting them together may be tricky — Jimmy Fallon nearly made it happen in 2009 … until Tiffani Thiessen put the kibosh on the whole thing.
Man. Can I tell you how much I hope this happens? I really, really hope this happens. Mr. Belding, I don’t care all that much for, because he’s just like whatever, but seeing Zack and Kelly rekindle their on-screen romance? Come on, Kapowski. It’s not as if you’ve got anything better going on. Might want to rethink the 2009 Kibosh, huh?
New Kids on the Block. 98 Degrees. Boyz II Men. BOOM (BOOM is not a band, boom is the sound your brain made when it just exploded).
The tour begins on May 31st. All three bands will be at all shows, so there’s no chance of having to trade a performance of “I’ll Make Love to You” for “Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche).” And here’s a bonus surprise: on April 2nd, we’re getting a brand new NKOTB album. So just simmer on that.
While you’re simmering, can I tell you about some more good news? Ok, you know how they’re doing a reboot of Boy Meets World? I know you’ve heard about this, but it’s called Girl Meets World, and it’s about Cory and Topanga’s daughter. It’s going to be fabulous, seeing some of the most beloved characters ever – or, ok, from the 90′s – come back in 2013.
Speaking of beloved characters from the 90′s, you know what other show might be doing a similar reboot? Saved by the Bell. I KNOW. TMZ caught Mark-Paul Gosselaar out and about and asked him about the show, and he said that if that whole thing goes well, then “maybe we’ll do a reunion as well.” As in maybe there will be a brand new Saved by the Bell out around the same time as the brand new Boy Meets World. As in FREAK OUT.
First of all, YOU SHUT YOUR MOUTH, ZACK MORRIS! Saved by the Bell was a not a hokey show, far from it. It was a moving, breathtaking experience that was shared by millions. It was exquisitely written, brilliantly acted, and, to put it simply, life-changing. But Zack did have it right when he said that it wasn’t a “great show.” Because it really wasn’t: it was a phenomenal show.
Second of all, did anyone really expect Zack Morris to get this gorgeous? He was always cute and all, but in a kind of generic blond surfer way. These days though, it’s a little overwhelming how beautiful he is. I watched his episode of Law and Order: SVU yesterday, the one where he’s married to Elizabeth Banks and they’re both porn stars, and I was like “whoa, Zack Morris, you’ve come a long way.” I was sort of mesmerized by his beauty, but I think he made some shady porn connections and got stabbed or something.
In conclusion, I think I’m going to spend the rest of the day working on a Saved by the Bell/Law and Order: SVU fan fiction where a charming, popular kid from California moves to New York City, and in order to survive, he has to make gay porn. I’ll let you know how it goes.
