Another Saved by the Bell post?!
Looks like Lark Voorhies isn't the only Saved by the Bell alum who is having problems these days. Dustin Diamond has set up a website selling tee-shirts so he can raise money to stop a foreclosure on his home. (He also calls himself a "famous celebrity" and "the DMan.")
What could have gone so wrong to make Screech Powers resort to such tactics? I'm happy to report neither Zack nor Slater had anything to do with this. Rather, Dustin says that after finishing Saved by the Bell he moved to the midwest and wanted to buy a house. Because he had "shitty credit" he could only purchase a home through a land contract. Okay, let's back up for a second. Why did Screech have bad credit in the first place? He doesn't tell us. I'm going to guess he spent everything buying gifts in a futile attempt to impress Lisa Turtle.
So he got this land contract, things didn't work out so well, the owner of the land wants either $250,000 or the land back, and Dustin doesn't have the money to make that happen. He went to an "expert in land contracts" who was supposed to make everything better, but instead the guy just ignored Dustin's calls and now Dustin is in dire straights indeed. So he's selling tee-shirts--an extra $5 for an autograph!
Somehow I have a feeling that this is all just a prank designed to get Mr. Belding out of his office.
