Blind Items Revealed

July 2, 2009

In two weeks this magazine I love to hate is going to have a cover reuniting the cast of a popular 80's-90's tweener comedy. Well, almost the entire cast. It seems that the bigger stars from the show would only agree to pose for the cover if two of the members of the cast were not involved. The magazine agreed.

#1 - Magazine
#2 - Show
#3 & #4 - The two cast members excluded.

#1 - People
#2 - Saved By The Bell
#3 & #4 - Screech and Mr. Belding

Melanie said...

I wonder what excuse they will use for not including them?

Mooshki said...

Wow, a lot of you guessed these guys right! So, Screech hits the cast up for $$$, and Mr. Belding hits them up for sex? LOL!

was mr. belding pedo?

Apple said...

I'm sure Dustin Diamond wanted to be paid for the cover. And was an all around douche about it and to the bigger stars who didn't want to be seen with him.

But what would the bigger stars have against Mr. Belding. Did he diddle the kids when they were younger??

I agree, I see the Screech part but Mr. Belding? Hmmm wonder what thats about?

Dana said...

lots of people got this one. sad no mr b

Gayla said...

A few people said in the original comments that Mr. Belding was a perv, so I am guessing one or more of the female stars blocked that. It's also fairly easy to get away with his absence too since he was "just" the principal; while a well-known supporting character, it's the six teens of the show who were the stars.

Screech is the one whose absence will be more glaring, but he's a douche who squandered away all the good will that his character brought him, so that one is fairly self-explanatory.

It does make you wonder why they've left Mr. Belding out.
Perhaps it was like someone suggested earlier that it was the "kids" photo. But couldn't you just have him in the background wearing a blue suit with his arms crossed and a "What have you done now Zack" face?

Then again, it has to be something, if they would only agree to pose if screech and Mr. B were left out.
Weird.

Jessica said...

interesting. no screech or mr. b. wonder why?
go for a 90210 cover instead.

cajun cutie said...

The bigger stars from SBTB? Who are they? Can't be talking about Mario Lopez or Tiffany Theissen? They are all about equal at this point.

Quintessential Southerner said...

mario, tiffany and screech got more face time to me?.

Ellen said...

I googled mr. belding and nothing bad came up about him in a quick search, except that he did an embarassing kareoke act of a Journey song. Otherwise, it looks like he has done a bunch of nice things. I wonder what this is about?

Dijea said...

I rocked this one!!!!!

I was overseas when this show was on. Catch it in reruns sometimes and love the clothes. So funny. However, I am clueless about the cast.

Lissette said...

I jammed! Soooo cool!

AnonMom said...

I can understand no Screech, but why no Mr. Belding?

*Miss_P* said...

poor Mr Belding

Lioness70 said...

I got this one right! Now off to barf. Mario "no one has a hotter bod than me" Lopez on the cover? Ewwwwww!

Nikki said...

i agree with mr. belding being a perv. when i was a freshmen in college mr. belding came to an all night charity event at my school. he was an absolute pig. hitting on every girl in sight and making really inappropriate/perv-y comments. it was really weird and uncomfortable.

Kimberley said...

Nikki, thanks for the info to back up the perviness of Mr. B. It makes total sense why they wouldn't want someone like that around!

gauchogirl said...

I agree with Nikki, I was at the Hard Rock pool in Vegas last year for Memorial Day weekend and Mr. Belding was there. At first I thought it would be cool to meet him, but when I tried talking to him he basically ignored me and kept spanking some girl's ass and staring at her boobs. She was young enough to be his grandaugher. He's a total pig.

Mara said...

Uh, just FYI, Belding was one of the first to agree to the reunion.

It's Tiffani Thiessen and Dustin Diamond that are the holdouts.

Apple said...

@Mara,

You are mixing up a show & magazine.

Tiffany & Screech are holding out for the Jimmy Fallon reunion.

People magazine is something diffrent.

Saz said...

Unfortunately I've seen numerous photos of Mr. Belding cub-hopping and dancing with/leering at girls young enough to be his daughters/granddaughters. I wouldn't be surprised if hr was a perve and made the SBTB set a bit uncomfortable. And Screech... he needs so much therapy. I remember seeing him as a celeb guest on a kid show when I was little and I thought he seemed smart, articulate and funny. It's sad that he threw it all away and became such a douchebag.

Movie Fan said...

According to a recent book review by the Onion AV Club of Dustin Diamond's "Behind the Bell," Diamond apparently reveals in the book that the producers made the relationship between Screech and Belding overtly homosexual during Saved By The Bell: The New Class! Maybe the other cast members were afraid that Diamond and Mr. Belding were going to start making out during the photo shoot?

Ha, I am getting such a kick out of reading these old blind items.

Mr Belding came to my college when I was a sophomore (Furman University - 2004, I think) and was so awful that everyone in the auditorium walked out during his "speech." He was the most self-absorbed asshole I had ever encountered in my life.

He would say a sentence and then stand back with his arms lifted waiting for the auditorium to applaud or congratulate him for his ingenious remarks. Needless to say, he left the place with few admirers.
