Dustin Diamond Apologizes To ‘Saved By The Bell’ Co-Stars For X-Rated Video
Dustin Diamond apologized to his castmates from Saved By The Bell for his destructive behavior over the years since the show ended on Thursday’s Today Show,
Saved by the Bell was an NBC teen sitcom television series running from 1989 to 1993, with spin-offs in 1992, 1994, and sequel Saved by the Bell: New Class running from 1993 to 2000. The show, co-starring Mario Lopez, featured Diamond as the nerd of the group, Screech. He came back as the principal’s administrative assistant in New Class.
After the show was finished, Diamond released a sex tape Saved by the Smell in 2006 and wrote a book Behind the Bell in 2009, where he covered the bad behavior he and his co-stars exhibited.
“Mario Lopez and I speak frequently and Dennis Haskins and I speak frequently,” Diamond told Doctor Oz, “And they know what I went through, but the rest of the cast — Mark Paul [Gossalaar] I haven’t seen since I was 16 years old, so I feel terrible for it, but what can I do? I guess tweet him.”
“I’m sorry that this has taken advantage of me,” Diamond states, “the book and other situations I’m sure we’ll talk about here. But I’m sure that you’ve experienced downfalls as well in your time and I’m still loving you guys.”
