Mark-Paul and Mario Reunite!

This mini reunion with Mark-Paul and Mario on EXTRA came full circle for ME! (Well, kind of! ha!) My question to the guys (via Twitter) was picked and asked by Mario! I still can't believe it! If you watched it when it aired on Friday, take a look at the full interview online below. My question wasn't answered on air, but during the full edit online. I am still giddy and shocked! :) -Erika

Zack and AC: A 'Saved by the Bell' Reunion at The Grove
May 27, 2011

"Extra's" Mario Lopez reunited with his old "Saved by the Bell" castmate Mark Paul Gosselaar at The Grove -- and answered some fan questions!

It's been 17 years since Lopez and Gosselaar starred as AC Slater and Zack Morris on "Saved by the Bell." Were there any serious romances behind the scenes? "I don't know if there were romances," laughed Gosselaar. Lopez added, "Yeah, romance is a strong word." Gosselaar said it was more "Giggly, fun." Lopez continued, "Fun's a good word. We'll go with fun!"

Gosselaar will be starring in the upcoming TNT show "Franklin and Bash" with Breckin Meyer, playing a smooth-talking lawyer. "My guy is a bit more slick in court, connects with jury better, off the cuff more in court."

"Franklin and Bash" premieres June 1 at 9:00 PM on TNT.

SBTB:NOW! Exclusive: Lucky BELL Fan Writes About Meeting MPG and Tiffani 20 Years Ago!

We have a special blog post today! Irene, a BELL fan from the original days, has written to share with a fond memory from her childhood when she got the chance to meet Mark-Paul and Tiffani in France! Irene, I can totally relate to your fondness of the show. I am almost 30 years old and BELL still holds a special place in my heart. I just can't seem to give up this little fansite I started 10 years ago! Enjoy everyone.... -Erika

Irene writes:

It was 20 years ago. I got a call one day after school telling me that I had won a television contest and would get to have dinner with my idols, Tiffani Thiessen and Mark-Paul Gosselaar. Some screaming and jumping up and down followed before my mother eventually calmed me down and celebrated with me.

My passion for Zack Morris started with the show “Good Morning Miss Bliss”, and soon my days were all revolving around “Saved By The Bell”. My friends and I would all rush home after school to watch a new episode and talk about it first thing in the morning the next day. I don’t think people know how popular SBTB was in France at that time, and that Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tiffani Thiessen and the rest of the cast were featured in teen magazines every week.

It was 20 years ago. We were six lucky kids waiting in a private dining room at the Hard Rock Café in Paris, magazines, pens and disposable cameras at hand, our hearts pounding and yes, some of us sweating excessively. And then they appeared. Of course it was surreal and my feet didn’t touch ground for two hours. Few of us spoke English so the conversations were short and awkward at times. But Tiffani and Mark-Paul, who had brought along his equally kind and beautiful mother, were very generous with us all.

I’m 34 years old now. I’ve watched all the episodes of SBTB, still remember some of them more vividly than I would like to admit as well as the lyrics of the song “Friends Forever”. It was 20 years ago. And it is still one of my fondest memories ever.

A SBTB:NOW! Fan Meets Elizabeth!

We have another SBTB:NOW! member who had the opportunity to meet Elizabeth Berkley during her book tour for "Ask Elizabeth"! Elizabeth made a stop at her home state Michigan on March 30. Renee, a native of Elizabeth's hometown Farmington Hills, made it to her book signing and is kind enough to share her experience with us! enjoy!

Renee writes:

"Meeting Elizabeth Berkley was an amazing experience and a childhood dream come true! When she first walked in she said hi to her family all waiting there to see her (this is the town she grew up in which is the same as mine). She announced that she just found out her book was #4 on the NY Times best seller list! It was so cool to be there with her right when she, like the rest of us, just found out! Then she made a little speech talking about the book and how great it was to be back in her home town sharing this with us. She said it was such a full circle moment. After she talked for a bit she took a few questions from the audience. When she was done she starting signing books. When it was my turn I mentioned I had written her on FB a few months ago about coming here on her book tour and she said omg that was you? with a big smile on her face! I was so touched she remember who I was. She told me to write her a note on FB saying who I was and that I was there. :) We talked for a bit. I brought one of my sbtb books for her to sign(it has her on the cover) she said how cool it was to see that since she hadn't seen it in such a long time! She even flipped through it a bit. She signed both books for me and let me take a picture with her and even asked if it came out well. All in all it was an awesome experience and I am an even bigger fan of hers than I was before. She really is beautiful inside and out! She is making her home town proud! The book is great too. Wish I had had it when I was a teen. Still very useful though even if you are a bit older. :)"

Thank you Renee! We are so happy you had this great chance to meet Elizabeth!
