E! True Hollywood Story: Saved by the Bell

E! will re-air E! True Hollywood Story: Saved by the Bell this weekend, which originally premiered back on Dec 1, 2002. These documentaries normally reveal their subject's scandalous and racy pasts. But, you will not find that with SBTB's.

Originally, this special was supposed to air as part of E!'s TV Tales, a series that told the history of classic sitcoms. But while in production of the BELL version, the series was cancelled. Instead of scrapping all of their hard work all together, they decided to change some graphics around and air it as a E!:THS.

Secondly, in reality, a E!:THS of SBTB would have never really met their criteria of racy and scandalous story telling because there really isn't much trash to dish (contrary to Dustin's book of lies). So, that is why some of you might be expecting it and will be disappointed after you watch. We were lucky this even made it on air!

Lastly, I was contacted by E! to use my SBTB memorabilia for their shoot. A lot of what you see, (books, scripts, fan mail, etc) belong to me. So, here's a fun fact: yours truly is in the credits! :)

To catch this special again or to watch it for those who have never seen it, it will re-air on Sunday, Dec.19 at 7AM on E!.

Oscar Nominated Actress admits crush on AC Slater!

She earned an Oscar nomination for 2009's "An Education" and has starred opposite actors like Michael Douglas, Johnny Depp and Jake Gyllenhaal, but the highlight of Carey Mulligan's career so far has been meeting Mario Lopez.

During a recent L.A. Times Young Hollywood roundtable chat, the 25-year-old British It girl revealed that she's had a crush on the "Saved by the Bell" star ever since she saw him at L.A.'s Muscle Beach during a family vacation when she was 11.

And to this day, she still gets flustered when she sees the "Extra" host at Hollywood events.

"All the way through awards season, every time we did a red carpet and I saw A.C. Slater, I was like a complete disaster," says the "Wall Street 2" star. "I went bright red… and they make you stand really close to these people - uncomfortably close - and because of the camera angles, I was always within sort of kissing distance."

Those intimate public moments have been the biggest perks of fame by far. "Every one of my dreams has come true this year, including that,” she says.

Hollywood production company Deviate Pictures today announced the launch of their newest web series, "Neighborhood Watch," which stars sitcom legend Dennis Haskins.

Catch Mario Lopez on Ellen Tomorrow, 11/5!

Mario Lopez has been bitten by the daddy bug.

The Extra host, who welcomed 8-week-old daughter Gia Francesca with girlfriend Courtney Mazza in September, is already pressing for more kids — though he and Mazza apparently differ on just how soon that might happen.

“I definitely want more kids. I’d love three or four, to be honest,” Lopez, 37, says in an interview airing Friday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

And how does Mazza feel about that? “She’s like, one at a time,” Lopez says. “She’s cool with that. She definitely wants them, but I kind of want them right away, and that’s where we have our differences.”

Lopez thinks it’s best for siblings to be close in age. “I was raised close in age,” he says. “When there is too much of a gap … I don’t know, I just think it would be cooler.”

Asked if he plans to propose to Mazza, his girlfriend of two years, Lopez replies: “If she’ll have me. The jury is still out on whether she wants to keep me.” He adds with a laugh: “She is, at least, stuck with me … because of the baby.”

Mario Lopez: From 'Saved By the Bell' to 'Saved By the Baby'

Mario Lopez has cut a rug on "Dancing With the Stars," flashed his dreamy dimples as A.C. Slater on "Saved By the Bell" and regularly hangs with celebrities as the host of the syndicated TV series "Extra."

Now, Lopez is also starring in a new VH1 reality show, "Saved By the Baby," which premieres this week. In September, his long-time girlfriend, Courtney Mazza, gave birth to the couple's first child, daughter Gia Francesca Lopez, now 6 weeks old, and the show chronicles his countdown to fatherhood.

While sitting on the sidelines of the San Diego Chargers versus Tennessee Titans game in San Diego Oct. 30, with a Canon EOS Rebel camera in hand, Lopez (who hails from San Diego and is a Chargers fan) called ParentDish to gush about baby Gia and dish on his new show.

PD: Your former co-stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Tiffani Thiessen are also parents. Did they give you any advice?
ML: Tiffani and I went through the experience around the same time. We are so thrilled to have babies around the same age. We can't wait to organize play dates soon.

Mark-Paul Gosselaar isn’t letting his divorce get him down!

Though Mark-Paul Gosselaar recently separated from Lisa Ann Russell, 38, his wife of 14 years, he isn’t letting it affect his job as a devoted dad to his son Michael, 6, and daughter Ava, 4. Mark-Paul makes being dad his No. 1 priority and he’s making a point to mark every milestone and make sure his kids don’t miss out on anything — including visits from the tooth fairy!

Mark-Paul exclusively told In Touch at the EMA Awards in Los Angeles, “The kids’ teeth are flying out and I am busy being the tooth fairy!” But Mark-Paul, 36, isn’t letting the tooth fairy spoil his kids, telling In Touch, “The tooth fairy gives them quarters for every tooth they’ve lost. We’re up to three, so that’s 75 cents.”

Mark-Paul tells In Touch that he hasn’t made a playdate with his old Bayside High classmates Mario Lopez and Tiffani Thiessen, but hopefully a class reunion soon will be in the works!

Mario Lopez: Fatherhood Is a Whole New Workout

Mario Lopez may getting less sleep these days now that he's a new dad but the Extra host is still hitting the gym – kind of.

"I'm definitely still working out, but I do less intense workouts because I'm not getting as much sleep now," Lopez tells PEOPLE during an appearance at Manor Nightclub in Chicago. "So the fitness [regimen] is still intact, but lately I just haven't been able to go at it as hard as I used to."

But the doting dad, whose daughter Gia was born Sept. 11, just couldn't be happier to be a father – with or without his signature six-pack abs. "I love [being a dad] more than anything," he says. "I absolutely can't wait to get home to see her – she's so amazing. The whole experience is so amazing."

Being a new parent isn't without its fair share of surprises, though.

"The biggest surprise about becoming a father was watching her being born because I didn't know if she was going to be girl or a boy," Lopez, 37, says.

Even though he didn't know the sex until the baby was born, he had a hunch it was a girl. "The way [girlfriend Courtney Mazza] was carrying and everything else, I had a feeling it was going to be a girl – and I was right."

As for diaper duty, Lopez says he's all over it. "Oh yeah, I'm definitely hands-on, changing the diapers and everything," he says.

And when it comes to keeping the romance alive with girlfriend Courtney Mazza, he's got that in the bag as well.

"I think it's definitely important to still do date night and keep the romance there," he says. "We are making an effort in that department."

Lopez will be letting the world see just how chaotic his life really is when his new reality show debuts on VH1 on Nov. 1. "Oh yeah, you'll see it all," says Lopez. "We did everything at once: new baby, new house, new puppy – lots of changes going on."

Mario Introduces Baby Gia Francesca!

Last month, Extra host Mario Lopez and girlfriend Courtney Mazza welcomed their first daughter to the world, Gia Francesca, born on September 11.

OK! has now revealed the first public photos of the adorable little girl, being held in the air by her adoring daddy. Mario, who's previously admitted to being on "diaper duty" is proud Gia has started to take after him in his second most-famous feature, his dimples! “She’s constantly changing,” he said. "But she’s got these slight dimples."

Mario tells OK! he is still in the "shocked, excited" stage of fatherhood but that he's not too out of place. He credits his upbringing saying: "“I come from a big, loud Mexican Catholic family. My sister also has three kids, so I’m used to a bunch of babies [being] around.”

Find out more about Mario's feelings of new fatherhood by checking out the latest issue of OK! on newsstands this week.

Tiffani Launches Petit Nest, Modern Children's Nursery Line

As a new mom to 4-month-old daughter Harper Renn, Tiffani Thiessen has started to adjust to the sleepless nights and never-ending feeding schedule — sort of.

“I’m overwhelmed, but for all the right reasons,” she says. Now if only she could get her baby girl to slow down a little.

“She rolled over really quickly, which kind of scared the crap out of me,” says Thiessen, 36. “She’s already been scooting for a couple of weeks now! I think she’s going to be an early walker, which frightens me.”

Then again, Harper has to keep up with her busy mom: In addition to her role on USA’s White Collar, Thiessen is also launching a new children’s collection, PetitNest, which includes furniture, bedding and wall art.

The actress partnered with HGTV Design Star finalist Lonni Paul to create the collection, which shies away from the traditional baby blue and pink color palettes.

“We wanted our fabrics to be a little more sophisticated and less child-like,” says Paul, herself a mom to 4-year-old twins Jett and Sophie.

Adds Thiessen: “We didn’t want the typical, cliché baby furniture. It was important to us to have a style that appeals to people who are very much into the design world.”

Meanwhile, Harper’s already showing she has clear opinions of her own. “She does not take a bottle,” says the star. “She’s full-on breastfed. She’s all Mommy. It’s challenging for sure, but it’s what’s best for her.”

As for regaining her pre-baby shape, “I was working out with a trainer in New York and trying to do all that, but I’m giving myself a break and not going crazy — because I can’t. I can’t do that,” says Thiessen.

“My priority is her right now — and PetitNest! I’ve lost a lot of weight and I’ve still got a little bit more to go, but I’ll get there. And I’m okay with that.”

Diamond Facing Foreclosure, again!

Dustin Diamond's financial woes are stacking up - the former Saved By the Bell star has been hit with his second foreclosure warning this year.

The troubled actor has been served with legal papers from lawyers representing Wells Fargo Bank after allegedly racking up debts amounting to $278,309.

Diamond, best known for playing lovable geek Screech on the teen series, will be forced to move out of his home in Ozaukee County, Wisconsin if he fails to pay off the bill, reports

It's the latest in a series of money worries for Diamond - he had a foreclosure scare in April when he was asked to pay $290,000. And in August last year, he was hit with a tax bill amid accusations he had run up debts of $21,015.

Today's confessions come from one of our biggest fans, Renee! Renee has been a dedicated follower of SBTB:NOW! almost from the very beginning. She is a big fan of the show since 1994 and the biggest Tiffani-Amber Thiessen fan you'll ever meet! She's our Buddy Bands designer, too! It's always good to hear from her because she's an overall sweetheart. Enjoy her confessions!
Remember, it is really easy to be a part of our CONFESSIONS. Just answer the following questions and email your answers to and you will be featured on our blog!

1) What is your most fondest memory of the show growing up?

I have 2 memories. A) waiting a week or two to see the wedding in Las Vegas movie. I saw a commercial for it and I flipped out! I seriously could not wait to see it. the night it was on I remember that friday we went on a field trip to this local park. and I remember thinking my god when will this day be over so I can watch the wedding movie! lol
B) my mom willing to buy me a million teen magazines about sbtb and the upcoming wedding movie. for a while she had tried to find stuff I wanted/enjoyed to read because I had trouble with reading. and I was supposed to practice with books and things. but she couldn't get me to do it because I was picky and wasn't interested in reading anything. until I heard about the sbtb wedding movie. I can honestly say that my reading level went up that year from reading all my magazines and sbtb books.

2) If you change one element of the show, what would it be?

I would change Kelly and Jessie not being in all of the last season episodes. those episodes are not the same without them in it. adding Tori was interesting but it would have worked better if she was a new added friend instead of a replacement for the other 2 beloved characters. I know it was the actors who wanted out so I know it couldn't happen. but I still wish we had had more senior year episodes with Kelly and Jessie.

3) Who is your inner character and why?

My inner character I would say would be Kelly. I'm honestly not really totally like any of the characters. but I idolized her. she was good at everything, sweet, and popular. she was the person everybody loved. and that was kind of what I wanted to be like as a kid. and I was always one of the "nice kids" that was nice to everyone and wanted everyone to like me. so I guess I was like her a bit in that way.

4) Have you ever experienced a moment in life that you could relate to SBTB? explain.

Probably many actually. but the one that comes to mind was when I was in high school. my math teacher just up and left for some reason. so we had subs coming in and out to teach the class. and one time we had this guy come in who was literally insane. he reminded me of all the nutty teachers they had on sbtb. I was like I'm living in a sbtb episode! lol later I learned my sister in middle school had him too. he was making the rounds in the district and was then taken out because of all the parents complaints. He was clearly mentally unstable. but it was pretty funny!

Tiffani Thiessen Can’t Wait To Arrange Playdates With Mario Lopez So Their Kids Can Be Friends!

Tiffani grew up with Mario on Saved by the Bell — now she wants her little girl, Harper, to grow up with Mario’s daughter, Gia!
By: Lindsey DiMattina

Tiffani Thiessen spent four years working side-by-side with Mario Lopez on Saved By the Bell, and the pair developed a friendship that’s still strong — 17 years after their show ended. The new mom to baby girl Harper Renn Smith says she can’t wait to set up playdates with Mario’s 2-week-old daughter, Gia Francesca Lopez! “I will absolutely [arrange playdates] when they’re a little older,” Tiffani told exclusively at the Juno Jr. Launch event at FAO Schwarz in NYC on Sept. 25. “Mario just had her. [And Harper,] she’s three-and-a-half months … so when the baby is a little bit older, of course!”

Right now, both Tiffani and Mario are focused on being first-time parents. “He’s really busy right now,” Tiffani explained. “I’m very busy right now, but we text each other every now and then” to keep in touch.

“It’s a lot,” Tiffani said of her jam-packed mommy schedule. “When you give birth, that second eye [on the back of your head] always happens right there. That’s why I’m kind of looking over there to make sure she’s OK. She’s getting a little fussy,” she added as she looked over at Harper.

And until the craziness calms down, at least Tiffani has her own mom around to help out. “She’s been here for two-and-a-half months helping,” Tiffani said.

But no matter how busy she gets, Tiffani (who told us she wants to have more kids one day) wouldn’t have it any other way. “I didn’t want to have too many expectations,” Tiffani said, “But my biggest thing is that I actually couldn’t believe that I could fall so much in love with something so little.”

The Belding Brothers Reunite in a NEW Documentary!

Save the Empire Productions describe themselves and this new documentary called "Saved by the Belding" as:

"Four naive young men journey to California in hopes of finding the truth about the infamous Rod Belding of "Saved By The Bell" fame. Starring Ed Blatchford and Dennis Haskins. Directed by The Hamilton Brothers."

The new film is actually a sequel to a documentary they shot in 2009, which was all about Rod Belding and his disappearance. It got some attention on Youtube and led to both Dennis Haskins (Mr.Belding) and Ed Blatchford (Rod Belding) wanting to do a sequel where they actually go out to find "Rod Belding".

Here is the original documentary directed by Matt and Scott Hamilton. Below it is the trailer to the sequel "Saved by the Belding", where both Ed and Dennis make an appearance! Full documentary will be released sometime this fall.

This is actually pretty AMAZING!!! We are happy to share this with all of you. I am sure you want to know and learn more and we'll have an exclusive interview with these dedicated BELL fans coming up very soon! Congratulations Save the Empire Productions!

Today's BELL FAN CONFESSIONS we here from Alexis. He has been a huge fan since the early days of BELL and I am excited to share his confessions with you! Enjoy! Remember, it is really easy to be a part of our CONFESSIONS. Just answer the following questions and email your answers to and you will be featured on our blog!

1) What is your most fondest memory of the show growing up?

I remember when Zack and Kelly broke up. It was devastating. It felt like I WAS breaking up with my girlfriend. That hit home really hard for me. Oh yeah, and for years after the show was over, my brother and I thought that WE were the only people in the world who remembered Jessie's Song "I'm so excited". Little did we know the phenomenon it became.

2) If you change one element of the show, what would it be?

There really isn't anything to change at all. Maybe it could use a better bridge between the Miss Bliss years and Bayside, but that's just picking at nits at this point. Did you ever catch that Belding and AC are wearing Bayside SEAGULLS JR HIGH SCHOOL shirts in The Election episode?

3) Who is your inner character and why?

Of course I'd say either Zack or Slater, but in reality I'm probably more of a Screech. :/ I'll split the difference and say Kevin the robot.

4) Have you ever experienced a moment in life that you could relate to SBTB? explain.

I related Bell to real life everyday! If I had to pick a single day, it would be my high school graduation day. I remember the feeling of accomplishment and sadness that day and re-experienced it when the Bayside Kids finally left the airwaves. It's hard to say goodbye to old friends.

VIDEO: Tiffani Stops to Chat about National Gingivitis Awareness Month!

Tiffani Thiessen stopped by a local NYC morning news program to talk about her role as Elizabeth in the hit show on the USA Network's White Collar. She is also working with Crest to declare September as "National Gingivitis Awareness Month," in conjunction with the launch of Pro-Health® Clinical Gum Protection Toothpaste.

Thiessen discussed the importance of dental health and to raise awareness of the fact that gingivitis affects more than 50% of the population. If left untreated, gingivitis can lead to more serious forms of gum disease and tooth loss in adults.

She was at New York 's Greeley Square to attend an event to kick-off National Gingivitis Awareness Month today. Attendees joined Crest and Thiessen in pledging their support for Gingivitis Awareness Month by posting a pledge to improve their oral health on a Pledge Wall.

Mario is a Proud New Dad to a GIRL, Gia Francesca!

Mario Lopez, Mary Bauer (Bratt Decor) and Courtney Mazza

Over the weekend, Mario became a proud dad to baby girl, Gia Francesca Lopez! His girlfriend and new mom, Courtney Mazza, gave birth to Gia on Saturday, September 11, weighing in at 6llb, 4 oz, in Burbank, CA. Mother and baby are doing well.

"We are so overjoyed. What an amazing, wonderful and overwhelming experience to welcome our daughter into the world," Mario told "Extra."

"Mazza is a rock star! She was so tough and so strong during the whole thing. I peeked over too much... you don't want to do that cause there was a lot going on right there. It was like a 'CSI' episode. So I went back and this beautiful baby girl came out. She's precious."

Lopez had to catch a flight from an engagement in Las Vegas to make it to Burbank in time for the birth. "Mazza called me and said 'I'm in labor,' and I thought it was a practical joke. Then when my mom and sister started blowin' up my phone and tellin' me it's really happening. There was one flight left and we had to rush to get it, and we barely made it!"

"I feel amazing!" Lopez gushed. "The whole thing is so surreal, and it happened so quick. I just want to go and stare at her, check her out and just look at her. She's chubby, and she looks so cute."

"I woke up this morning as a regular guy and going to bed tonight as a father."

Take a peek at Gia's nursery!

SBTB:NOW! Blog Exclusive: NEW Confessions of a BELL Fan! Meet Tony!

Today we hear from SBTB:NOW! member Tony. I enjoyed reading his confessions and hope you will, too! Thank you so much for participating Tony!

Remember: We are still looking for more confessions to post. Don't forget to send in your answers. Your confessions will be featured on our blog! Just e-mail your responses to

1) What is your most fondest memory of the show growing up?

I may be an unusual example in that I came to SBTB fairly late in life. I first started watching the show by accident. My son was born in 1991, and Channel 4 here in the UK were showing SBTB on Sunday mornings. I remember I would sit in bed feeding my son and watching the show. I have fond memories of that. I had previously watched Good Morning Miss Bliss on occasion, and I remember being fascinating at seeing Hayley Mills in an American show, but after SBTB started airing I was hooked and became a regular viewer, watching all the way through the series as it aired. I also picked up some of the College Years, and the New Class, but by then I was extremely busy with two kids, and the scheduling was not convenient. I plan to get the DVDs at some point to remedy that.

2) If you change one element of the show, what would it be?

There's probably nothing I would change. I think SBTB was one of those shows that just hit the sweet spot. Like most fans I would have liked the show to run for longer, and for the College Years to have had greater success. I would also have liked to see Hayley Mills continue with the series somehow.

3) Who is your inner character and why?

Being older, and now having teenage kids myself, I probably most relate to Mr. Belding in the show. I was a college lecturer for 7 years, so I know what it's like to be surrounded by smart kids giving me the run around! I can also relate to that aspect of being older and sometimes wiser, and trying to pass that hard earned knowledge and experience on - but young people know better! It's ironic, but as the cast grows older I can relate to the actors far more. MPG was recently divorced, and like me has two children, and being divorced myself I can certainly relate to what he's going through, and what he will go through in the future with regards that.

4) Have you ever experienced a moment in life that you could relate to SBTB? explain.

I went back to college part-time from 1992-1994 to complete my MSc. I felt old at the time, but I was only 30, which seems young now. :) It was great being a student again, and meeting other "mature" students like myself. We used to hang out in our building's small refectory, which conjured up images of being in The Max.
