Screeched: "Uncomfortable" Saved By the Bell Cast Bans Dustin Diamond From Reunion

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The Saved by the Bell gang's all here! Almost!

Bayside High School's lovable loser, Samuel "Screech" Powers, portrayed by Dustin Diamond, was notably airbrushed out of an old cast picture and left off the cast's reunion on the cover of People magazine, released earlier this week.

Was it because of his upcoming Saved By the Bell tell-all book? His nasty sex tape? His Celebrity Fit Club meltdowns? His troubles with Wisconsin mortgage loans?

Yes, yes, yes and yes.

“The other cast members were very uncomfortable with including him,” a People spokesperson confirms. Ouch, Double-D. Dissed by Lark Voorhies. That hurts.

Diamond's forthcoming Saved By the Bell memoir is a big reason his old pals' defenses are up. Mark-Paul Gosselaar openly slammed him to Newsweek.

"What's he going to say?" Gosselaar sarcastically posited. "We were f--king groupies at 14? I can't wait to read his book, because I don't have a memory of a lot of the shows. Maybe it was because I was doing lines off of the audience members' a----."

"I'm sure he's going to write something crazy. So he's writing a book, I'm not afraid of what he has to say. There are not too many skeletons in my closet."

How did Diamond feel about the blatant snub? Apparently the same way Screech felt after being repeatedly brushed aside by love interest Lisa Turtle.

"Of course he cared he wasn't invited," a Diamond pal said. "Wouldn't you?"

Dustin Diamond Sex Tape
Dustin Cropped Out

Star in one lousy sex tape and your childhood pals pretend you never existed. Let this be a lesson to all you derelict, unsuccessful stand-up comedians out there.


I love dustin diamond no matter what anyone say...besides the other members, he was the real reason the show was a success because he was extremely goofy and funny.


Some of the things he claims about other cast members times dont add up just sayin...and hes a creep picking up chicks at disneyland were they even of age speaking of claiming mario lopez raped a girl and tiffani would go from room to room having sexual relations and mark being bisexual and having an incounter with i think a producer or something ans tiffani ....truly i doubt half the things he stated were true. Just sayin n im allowed an oppinion.


first off im currently 14 and its 2012. i really like this show! i found it on netflix :P - Diamond sure as heck messed up(on a lotta things >^< ), thats for sure. BUT, we all mess up. now,it doessnt make it right. but forgivnesss should play a role and he shoulda been invited. and i thought he was a pretty funny actor. and the other cast shouldnt have ever treated him or anyone like crap. but seriously FORGIVE HIM AND THE OTHER CAST AND START OVER.


Okay first off Dustin diamond is my idol because I too was a geek/nerd thru middle and high school I now am now on with my life I may be doing better than he but I feel bad for him because all his life he was always treated like a victim being bullied and things so that has toughened him up so the only way he thought for him to rebel against this was to be an ass and seem to be better than everyone else and he has way more Fu**ing talent than you do


Poor guy.


wow.. thats all i can say.. and he is an @ss.. for sure.. talking about how he can have that show shut down in a heart beat. because he is a jew.. or some bull crap like that.. he is weird.. and is the biggest loser i have ever seen.. andnot to mention ugly as a dogs butt! soo.. he should def. get over himself.. and move out of the US.. and try mexico or some were like that.. he seems like he would be better off there.. ohh but dont try acting.. u suck at it.. GET over yourself.. your a nobody as well.


Oh, you're so beautiful
Let me see you...
Have you ever had a Dirty sanchez?


I agree with Marques. Dustin Diamond is a complete jerk! Just because he was one of the cast does not mean he earns a right to be at the reunion. He has treated everyone like dirt. I can't understand why they kept him on the show to start with. He was a little jerk then and a big jerk now. If someone acted like that to you at your home would you invite them back?


A shame. They are all grown up now. Time to act grown up. People do stupid things. Get over it. Forgive him. like it or not Dustin was a cast member and should be included.


The way he acted when he was on Celebrity Fit Club truly showed how much of an @$$ he acted! Calling Kimberly Locke a loser, other stupid bull-$#%* antics, and starting a fight with Harvey (of all people!) Look at who's the loser now! And he's barred from the Reunion? Well there's an old saying: "you act like an @$$, you end up treated like an @$$!"
