First Coolio, now Screech

  • About the author EB


In further news from the “I can’t believe that person’s writing a book” department, Dustin Diamond, a.k.a. Samuel “Screech” Powers, has just signed up to write a behind the scenes tell-all about his years on Saved by the Bell. According to New York‘s website, the book will detail “sexual escapades among cast members, drug use, and hardcore partying.”

I want my SBTB gossip, and if you saw Diamond on Celebrity Fit Club, you know he is not the sweet nerd most of us grew up with and is probably ready to reveal more than any of us wanted to know about Kelly and Zack’s offscreen peccadilloes. To paraphrase Jessie Spano in that immortal episode about the caffeine pills, “I’m so excited, I’m so excited, I’m so . . . so . . . scared!”
