‘Saved by the Bell’: Screech Tells All!

‘Saved by the Bell’: Screech Tells All!

Jimmy Fallon must be celebrating today … his efforts to reunite the cast of Saved by the Bell on his show have led to a sorta-reunion for a cover story in this week’s issue of People magazine.

Why “sorta”? ‘Cuz Screech, a.k.a. Bell star Dustin Diamond declined to participate in the festivities, and is MIA from both the cover shot and the story inside. The People feature reportedly finds the cast members talking about the behind-the-scenes action on their 1989-93 NBC Saturday morning show, but I think it’s a safe bet that their stroll down memory lane will be tame in comparison to the tell-all Diamond is finally going to release.

Diamond’s Behind the Bell has just found a home with a new publisher (after he and his initial publisher “mutually” parted ways), and will hit stores on Sept. 29. The Transit autobio will supposedly feature lots of salacious tales about Diamond and his Bell castmates, including some secrets-spilling that will most likely have his former co-stars itching to stuff him in a Bayside High locker.

According to a publishing newsletter, the Screech book will include details on “sexual escapades among cast members, drug use, and hardcore partying.”

Wow. That sounds even more scandalous than the Bell episode where Jessie gets strung out on caffeine pills!
