Saved By The Bell
Getting into a tiny cheerleading uniform when you’re pregnant is no easy task, but our teen dream Tiffani Thiessen handled it like a boss for Jimmy Fallon‘s epic Saved by the Bell reunion. The star stopped by Big Morning Buzz Live today and explained how she had to “psych [herself] out” for the big skit.
Jimmy Fallon continues to kill the late-night game by making every ’90s child’s life complete. Only our favorite host has the power to bring our Saved By the Bell teen crushes Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tiffani Thiessen, Mario Lopez, and Elizabeth Berkley back to the halls of Bayside High. Oh, and Mr. Belding (Dennis Haskins) too, obviously.
Amber Thiessen turns 41 today. While the actress has had a successful career thanks to shows like Beverly Hills: 90210 and White Collar, she’ll always be our sweet, beloved Kelly Kapowski. Read more…
The ’90s are gone, but we’re still clinging to the decade’s greatest television shows thanks to Netflix binges and cable syndication. Everyone remembers the series’ big stars, but what about those supporting characters all diehard fans will never forget?
Lifetime aired its highly-anticipated movie The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story last night, and one thing is pretty clear by the credits: It was a hard knock four years for Screech (Dustin Diamond). Narrated by Bayside High School’s resident geek — and loosely based off Diamond’s 2009 tell-all Behind the Bell — Unauthorized puts Screech in one corner and his pretty-preppy co-stars (Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Lark Voorhies, Elizabeth Berkley and Tiffani Thiessen) in the other. For two hours, we watch Diamond yearning to be hotter, edgier, drunker (yup) — and the whole thing is really, really depressing.
Mark-Paul Gosselaar spills on his Saved By the Bell castmates, James Franco stands his ground against the media, Blake Lively reacts to Martha Stewart‘s diss (like a lady), and more pop culture news to fill your morning.
Remember when Jimmy Fallon (unsuccessfully) tried to get the cast of Saved By The Bell to reunite on his (then-fledgling) late night talk show? Yeah, well, yesterday’s surprise mini-reunion between Tiffani “Kelly Kapowski” Thiessen and Dennis “Mr. Belding” Haskins on NBC’s Today Show is a good indication why the SBTB thing never went down.
We so rarely get to be right about anything, ya’ll. We just want to savor it for a few moments longer. Ahhhhhhhhh! Can you smell that? That’s the sweet, sweet scent of vindication! It’s also the smell of some tragically incompetent make-up artist’s resume going up in flames after Saved By The Bell star Lark Voorhies popped up wearing what can only be described as a gruesome face of clown make-up last week. Fans of the ’90s TV classic flipped out after spotting a Yahoo interview video featuring a woman who bore a strong resemblance to a Peanuts-style drawing of Lisa Turtle, but we quickly rushed to her defense. We might not know Lark’s life, but we do know a blush and concealer disaster when we see it. We went to middle school, after all.
After setting everyone straight about what specific catastrophe was taking place on Voorhies’ face, we were happy to leave it at that. After AllHipHop posted a recent photo tweeted by the actress’s make-up artist from the set of her upcoming film Jessica’s Journey, however, we wanted to let you know with absolute certainty that we were right. For your benefit, of course! It turns out Lark actually looks like…
We’re so excited! We’re so excited! We’re so…utterly confused! Buzzfeed brought our attention to actress Lark Voorhies‘ appearance in a recent Yahoo interview and we are simply horrified by what poorly-applied makeup can do to a woman. The bright circles under the eyes! The eyebrows drawn on with a washable marker! The blush. Oh god, the blush! If we had seen Lark about to go on camera with this face full of clown make-up, we would have made sure she was “saved by the bell.” The bell on the fire alarm! Which we would have pulled to cause a distraction in order to get her out of there!
Now, are we claiming Lark hasn’t allegedly had some, um, adjustments in the face area? No…no, we’re not saying that. Nor are we ignoring the fact that *cough* Larkprobablyappliedthatmakeupherself. We’re just saying a professional makeup person should have been called in to deal with this situation. Period. Want to know what Lark looks like when she doesn’t resemble a toddler’s drawing of Lisa Turtle? Check her out in a photo from 2010 after the jump. See what we mean? It’s mostly that blush!
