It’s a boy for Elizabeth Berkley!

The actress and author delivered a son, Sky Cole Lauren, on Friday, July 20 in Los Angeles, her rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

 He weighed in at 8 lbs. Sky is the first child for Berkley and her husband, artist and designer Greg Lauren, whom she wed in 2003.

 “The moment we both saw him it was love at first sight,” the couple tell PEOPLE. “We are over the moon and grateful to start this amazing adventure together as a family.”

 The former Saved By the Bell star told PEOPLE in May that she was busy getting ready for the “role of a lifetime.”

 “I’m due this summer and there is a reason why they give you nine months to get ready!” Berkley joked at the time. “It does allow you to prepare.”

Mark-Paul Is Married!

BY LESLEY MESSER Saturday July 28, 2012 08:20 PM EDT

Sorry, ladies: Mark-Paul Gosselaar is officially off the market.

One year after the Franklin & Bash star proposed to advertising executive Catriona McGinn, the couple said "I do" on Saturday at the Sunstone winery in Santa Ynez, Calif., a source confirms to PEOPLE exclusively.

 "He was so excited to have found the woman of his dreams," said Neil Lane, who designed the couple's engagement rings and wedding bands. "He couldn't wait to propose!"

 Gosselaar, 38, who was previously married to Lisa Russell and has two children, told PEOPLE that he was very involved in Saturday's wedding planning.

 "I'm too type-A to let it happen around me," he said. "We're trying to make it as traditional as possible. It's going to be fun!"

 Next, the former Saved by the Bell star and his new bride are heading to Italy for their honeymoon. "Trust me, we are going to eat our a--es off!" he told PEOPLE.

"We're really excited about that element."

Mark-Paul took to Twitter to thank his fans:

Thanks for all the well wishes! I'm going to take a break now, travel for our honeymoon, and enjoy my beautiful wife...and new life!

Congratulations MPG and Catriona! Happiness always.

Tiffani Thiessen Plays 'Kiss, Marry, Ditch' on 'GAA'!

Tiffani Thiessen was on "Good Afternoon, America" yesterday promoting her hit show "White Collar" on the USA Network and played a fun game called "Kiss, Marry, Ditch", where she has to choose between Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez and Dustin Diamond! Does Kelly still love Zack more? Watch!

A Complete Sneaker Guide to Saved by the Bell

"Growing up, Saturday mornings were nothing without a mixing bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch and 30 minutes of "Saved By The Bell." Even as we got older and too cool for that bubble-gum pop culture TV we still snuck in a few episodes on TBS before and after school. Zack taught us as much about spitting game as our big brothers, and Kelly and Lisa were straight banging — it took Jessie a few years and an R-rated movie before she was on the radar. As much as Zack was a conniving punk scheming on his latest A, money, or one-episode jumpoff, he and the rest of his friends were a cultural icon which meant their fashion choices took over quick. We decided to go to the game tape and break down the sneakers that flooded Bayside and were on the feet of our favorite characters during the run of one of the greatest sitcoms of all time.

Gosselaar Explains 'Saved By The Bell' Diss

(CNN) -Nobody disses Zack Morris and gets away with it - not even Zack Morris, apparently. Actor Mark-Paul Gosselaar - who played the charming but mischievous Morris in the popular '80s and '90s sitcom "Saved By the Bell" - has had to explain some not-so-flattering comments he reportedly made about the show that made him famous.

 Last week, quoted Gosselaar as saying the iconic series was "not a great show," calling the writing "cheesy." Not surprisingly, diehard "SBTB" fans didn't appreciate his remarks. But TMZ reports that the actor now says that the quote in question was "taken out of context," even though he does admit to calling the comedy a little corny. Still, Gosselaar swears it was not a diss. "That's why people like it!" he said Thursday. "I wasn't saying it was a bad show, just that the writing reflected '80s cheesiness."

The "Franklin & Bash" star added that he's "proud of that show, and [has] no problem talking about it."

Mark-Paul even went to Twitter to defend himself:

., Interviews+out of context=sucks! I referred to the writing of SBTB "not being great". Nothing but respect for SBTB. Fallon is proof.

See Mr. Belding at a baseball game near you

When you’re a male star of “Saved by the Bell,” the popular TV show that launched the careers of several teen idols, you have to expect that females will occasionally swoon in your presence. But can Mario Lopez and Mark-Paul Gosselaar claim that a woman actually fainted upon meeting them?

Well, Dennis Haskins -- known worldwide as Mr. Belding -- can.

The goofy, wise and endearing principal of Bayside High, Haskins says he and his co-stars were at Disney World doing promotions during the show’s heyday in the early ‘90s when he inadvertently caused a woman to lose consciousness.

“I got lost while looking for where to be, so I tapped this woman on the shoulder and said, ‘Excuse me, do you know where the ‘Saved by the Bell’ exhibit is?' And out she went,” recalls Haskins, 61, who played Mr. Belding from 1989 until 2000 in the original “Saved by the Bell” series as well as two spinoffs, “Saved by the Bell: The College Years” and “Saved by the Bell: The New Class.”

For the record, the woman recovered from her unexpected run-in with Mr. Belding. But Haskins, whom you might have recognized in a recent cameo on “Mad Men,” is still surprising “Saved by the Bell” fans more than two decades after the show’s premiere.

For the fourth consecutive year he is making appearances at minor league baseball parks, where he’ll typically meet the players, throw out the first pitch, sing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame,” sign autographs and drop into the radio booth for an inning of play-by-play. He calls it “Mr. Belding’s Boys of Summer Tour.”

“All the minor league ballparks are geared toward family, bringing your children out, having a good, clean time, and that’s what ‘Saved by the Bell’ was all about,” he said.

Haskins is synonymous with Mr. Belding, but he’s had other recognizable roles as well, including a guest spot on “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” in 2005 and the cameo on “Mad Men” in which he played a Cool Whip test-kitchen scientist. For fans of “Saved by the Bell,” Haskins’ unexpected appearance on the AMC hit was rather nostalgic, and "Mr. Belding" was soon trending on Twitter.

“That was spontaneous and really delightful,” Haskins said. “To have that kind of reaction come back was really enjoyable.”

Though his best-known character is somewhat klutzy, Haskins was an athlete growing up in Tennessee and remains a big sports fan. He walked on the freshman basketball team at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga and has come to know many athletes during his years doing celebrity appearances.

Among his favorite interests is professional wrestling.

“I just have a lot of respect for how they maintain their athleticism and how hard they work and the show they put on for the fans,” said Haskins, who recently dropped by a WWE event in Chattanooga while visiting family.

“Saved by the Bell” has enjoyed a renaissance lately, with episodes airing on MTV2 and Netflix, and Haskins still keeps in touch with some of his old castmates.

“I stay in touch with Mario more than anybody, and Elizabeth [Berkley] a little bit,” he said. “But the others are off with careers, lives, other things.”

For Dustin Diamond, aka Screech, “other things” have involved celebrity boxing matches and roles in adult movies. If Mr. Belding were asked about this, he might have some harsh words for Screech. But Haskins reserves judgment.

“I worked with Dustin from the day he was 11 until he was 20,” Haskins said. “We worked together a long time. Dustin is making his own choices for his own reasons, but I’m not going to criticize him.”

Haskins can be seen at minor league stadiums throughout the summer, but when can we expect to see him on screen again?

“You don’t know as an actor,” he said. “Your last job is your last job until you get the next one."

Tiffani Thiessen Celebrates at Mattel's Little Mommy Day Event

Tiffani Thiessen celebrated the joys of mini-motherhood milestones with her daughter, Harper at Mattel’s Little Mommy Day at Dylan’s Candy Bar in New York City on April 26. The Little Mommy brand had a great time sharing the new dolls and accessories with a room full of moms and “little mommies” along with event host, Rosie Pope of Bravo’s “Pregnant in Heels” and other celebrity moms, including Kelly Rutherford.

Girls had the opportunity to adopt their very own Little Mommy baby doll and play out unforgettable mommy milestones in three lovable, imaginative play activities including feeding, bathing and sleepy time.

This looked like such a fun event!

Looking for Complete Collection DVD Reviewers!

A few weeks ago, we shared that a new Complete Collection DVD was available on pre-order at the Canadian and UK Amazon branches, thanks to TV Shows On DVD. Not much information about the collection was listed in the description of the product. Well, it's finally out and available for purchase. We know a little more. The set includes Seasons 1-5, including both TV movies, Hawaiian Style and Wedding in Las Vegas.  It's marked as a 13-disc set. We still don't know if the set will ever be available in the US. Or if it has any special features or non-syndicated cut episodes. But something tells me it's only a matter of time before it will be released in the US.

In the meantime, I am looking for the folks who finally own it to help me answer a few questions, provide some screen shots of the menus and possibly write a review for the blog! If you think you can help me, please shoot me an email Thanks!

BELL Coming Soon to MTV2

"Saved by the Bell" will premiere on it's new home MTV2 beginning on March 12! BELL will air weekdays beginning at 12pm with 4 episodes and on Saturdays beginning at 9am-12-PM! Set your DVRs guys! BELL is back in syndication in the US where it belongs! Here's to 20 more years in syndication!

BELL Coming to MTV2!

As many of you know, TBS dropped BELL from their lineup this month. Currently, SBTB is not airing in syndication on any US network for the first time in 20 years! But things have quickly changed.

Beginning in March, "Saved by the Bell" will be back in syndication, where it belongs, on MTV2! The network plans to air the show weekdays at 12-2PM and Saturday mornings beginning at 9-12PM! BELL is back on Saturday mornings!

Some people wonder why fans care so much to have BELL airing in syndication when all seasons are on DVD, even the TV movies. Our mission and passion is to continue the show's tradition on TV. We want new generations of kids to fall in love with the show. The only way is by having the show in syndication. We can't take for granted the success the show has gotten in syndication for 20 years! And for that we have to thank TBS. But I guess it's time for a change.

The kids of Bayside will be on MTV! "Lisa Turtle" would be step closer to meeting MC HAMMER!!!!

Saved by the Bell Detention Desserts Table

From the Hostess With the Mostess Blog:

"So………I’m LIKE, totally so excited to share this RAD dessert table with you! *wink* All pun aside though, this Saved by the Bell inspired Bayside High School “Detention Desserts” Table from Million Dollar $mile Celebrations really IS pretty dang awesome!

Gotta love a clever & creative theme, and from Kelly “Kup”owski cupcakes to Screech on a Stick marshmallow pops, this one definitely fits the bill “bell“. Don’t miss the strategically placed AC Slater dumbbell, sneaker sugar cookies, or $15 retro television “cupcake stand” either! P.S. Apparently the candy push pops are “so excited” too… and I’m pretty stoked on how they’re displayed in textbooks! See below ;)"

We happen to think this party is so creative, and unique and did the show justice in a FUN party way! Great job! What do you all think? For more pictures, click here!

SBTB 13-Disk Complete Collection DVD Set Coming Soon?

TV Shows On is reporting Saved by the Bell - A DVD Release for 'The Complete Collection' is Coming. A 13-disc set is up for pre-order at Amazon's Canadian branch.

"From 2003 to 2005, Lionsgate released 3 DVD sets which together contained all 5 seasons of Saved by the Bell, the original show starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Dustin Diamond, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Elizabeth Berkley, Lark Voorhies and Dennis Haskins. This unfortunately did NOT include the one season of the original show, Good Morning, Miss Bliss, which later became Saved by the Bell (and is counted as part of that show by many fans)...those home video rights lay elsewhere. However, in 2007 Lionsgate also released a "double feature" DVD of the two post-series reunion telefilms: "Hawaiian Style / Wedding In Las Vegas." All 4 titles were available in both the USA and Canada.

Now we're grateful to one of our longtime readers, Alexander Ricci, for the heads up that a new listing at (the Canadian branch of the big e-tailer) shows a March 12 release date for "Saved by the Bell - The Complete Collection." It's marked there as a 13-disc set, which is just enough DVDs to cover the disc count of the 4 previous releases (5 discs + 4 discs + 3 discs + 1 disc = 13). Cost shown is CA$61.99 SRP, and you can pre-order it now at a discount that brings it down into the same current price range of the old separate titles.

There's no package art shown there yet. The state-side branch of Amazon doesn't show a listing for the title at this time, and the Canadian listing neglects to name a studio or distributor. Assuming it's still Lionsgate, the studio hasn't made any formal announcement for the product yet. And the date shown in's pre-order listing is a Monday; we all know that in-store DVD sets come out on Tuesdays. So we do expect the date to change when the title is officially announced (our guess is that Amazon accidentally used the "order due" date, which is the deadline day roughly 30 days prior to the street date in which retailers must submit their finalized product orders to studios/distributors in order for deliveries to arrive on time).

Stay tuned, of course, and we'll update you further on this title just as soon as we are able to!"

Now this has us asking:
Will this set include: 

  • Full non-syndicated edited episodes?
  • interviews?
  • Good Morning, Miss Bliss eps?
  • special features?
  • etc.
  • Will it be sold in the US, too?

Will YOU buy this set? Let us know in the comment section! Don't forget to share this post with your friends on Facebook and Twitter!

Tiffani Thiessen: 'I don't want or need Saved By The Bell reunion'

Tiffani has insisted that she has no interest in a Saved By The Bell reunion.

Late Night host Jimmy Fallon has been the chief proponent of Thiessen reuniting with Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Mario Lopez for a new one-off Saved By The Bell episode, but the actress has now told Parade that it will likely never happen.

"It's not something I want or need to do, and a few of us feel the same way. We're all doing our own thing," Thiessen said, adding: "Jimmy's never called me personally, only his producers. He might be a little harder to turn down."

Thiessen also revealed that she's never read co-star Dustin Diamond's tell-all biography Behind the Bell, which dished dirt on Saved By The Bell's cast.

"My time is very precious these days, and that's not how I want to spend it," she said.

Saved By The Bell ran for five seasons between 1989 and 1992 and even spun off a College Years series.

Thiessen's co-star Elizabeth Berkley said last year that she would be in favor of a Saved By The Bell reunion show.
