Saved by the Bell Book: A.C. Slater Was a Player

Dustin Diamond, aka Screech Powers, sat down in front of cameras recently to give a reading of his new tell-all, . This particular passage focuses on the many on-set loves of Mario Lopez, who played muscle-bound hunk A.C. Slater on the show.

To be perfectly clear, Diamond did not actually see these alleged sexual relations (that we know about). But he builds most of his storytelling on who went back to who’s trailer once tape stopped rolling.

Dustin Diamond Plans Saved by the Bell Tell-All

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Television, Drugs, Rumors,

Dustin DiamondJust when I was convinced Mario Lopez was the slimiest thing to come out of Saved by the Bell, Dustin Diamond does something that makes me reevaluate my choice.

To be fair, Dustin actually did something slimy years ago when he exploited his sex tape for his career. But I’ve been trying to forget about that. Now, still nothing more than a D-lister, Diamond has now moved on to exploiting his former cast members.

According to New York Magazine, Screech Powers is going to have a ghostwriter produce a tell-all about his years on the show. The book, titled Behind the Bell, promises to talk about “sexual escapades among cast members, drug use, and hardcore partying.”

But will it explain how Elizabeth Berkley wound up in Showgirls? If not, I’ll pass.

Katie Holmes’ Paycheck Means a Smaller One for Mario Lopez

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Movies,

Katie HolmesWhile I’ve never been a huge fan of Ms. Holmes, I like to think of this as karma coming back to bite Mario in the ass.

In case you haven’t already heard the news, has finally chosen to put Suri down and get back to work. (Seems her Mad Money gig wasn’t satisfying enough for her or anyone who watched it.) But instead of returning to the big screen, Holmes has chosen to make her Broadway debut in All My Sons, a revival of an Arthur Miller play.

So what does Katie’s decision have to do with Lopez? Well, in order to recoup the money for

the publicity stunt

the actress’ paycheck, the producers had to seek out a venue with more seats. Unfortunately, taking over the Schoenfeld Theater meant an early end to the show currently performing there: A Chorus Line starring . Needless to say, Lopez is reportedly “pissed” by this news. (Oh, poor baby.)

You can expect lengthy reviews on Holmes’ performance this September.

What could possibly be worse than finding out that your boyfriend cheated on you? Finding out that he’s considered People‘s Hottest Bachelor! (Sorry, Karina.)

While I’m certain the magazine selected Mario Lopez long before tales of cheating ways were revealed (that’s if you don’t count Ali Landry’s experience), his inclusion just goes to show that any guy with a dimple can come off as charming.
