If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

That's how Dustin Diamond, a.k.a. Screech Powers, feels about cashing in on his disturbing and recently-leaked sex tape.

The actor/comedian defended his recent decision to profit from the alleged Screech sex tape to Rita Cosby on MSNBC's Scarborough Country Wednesday.

"We could spend a fortune fighting it in court, with little bits already being leaked out on the Internet, or we could suck it up and say you know what, it could be a losing battle, we'll make money if we just side with it," Diamond said.

And thus, the career of Screech Powers, amateur porn star, begins.

Double D also confessed that he's formed a different opinion of his former enemy, the porn video kingpin David Hans Schmidt, even going so far as to pay that sick bastard a backhanded compliment.

"I tip my hat to the guy ... if someone has a tape out there, they gotta watch out, 'cuz chances are he's gonna get a hold of it... the Sultan of Sleaze has done it again and I got caught with my hand in the cookie jar."

THG NOTE: Hard to fault Screech for his decision to sell out. It's like we've been saying for years. If you're going to give some skank the Dirty Sanchez, you might as well try and make some cash off it.

Schmidt also appeared on the show and boasted of four more celebrity sex tapes which have recently fallen into his possession -- one featuring a certain rap artist, another of a celeb who stars on the Bravo network.

No clues yet, but at least it's not K-Fed. That dude is no artist.

Heads up, Paris Hilton, you're about to have company.

Actually, you probably have had "company" for the past few hours already. Maybe twice!

In any case, it's about to become official -- Dustin Diamond is going to join the ranks of other sex tape stars and have his moment in the very disturbing spotlight.

Sex tape broker and certifiable sick f*&k David Hans Schmidt has struck a deal with ClubRedLight.com to distribute the tape. While the actor has publicly protested the sale of the Screech sex tape, that's not stopping him from hitting The Howard Stern Show and MSNBC to chat about it.

Red Light tells the New York Daily News that the tape is "quite humorous and, at times, arousing."

Gross.

While we don't judge anyone here at T.H. Gossip (with the exception of that b!tch Ashlee Simpson and her utter lack of redeeming worth), the motivation behind the Dustin Diamond sex tape is hard to fathom. Is this some sort of publicity stunt by Screech? How do you do that to some skank on film and not think it's gonna get out? Who the hell knows.

Clips from the Screech sex tape, widely known as Saved by the Smell, and brought to us courtesy of celeb sleuths TMZ.com, has been burning up the Internet. We've already seen excerpts featuring star Dustin Diamond, and now, TMZ has done it again and obtained footage of the supporting cast.

David Hans Schmidt, the dirty, dirty agent who's now selling the rights to the tape, says the two women are from the Midwest and in their early 20s.

One is blond, while the other is a rather striking brunette. Wow, Screech, we never knew you had it in you back at Bayside High School.

In its exclusive preview, TMZ has altered the hoes' voices. The tape was reportedly shot in a Midwest hotel suite -- complete with hot tub and champagne -- earlier this year.

Schmidt is scheduled to appear on Howard Stern's radio show next week, and will narrate the play-by-play scenes, from the opening credits up to the infamous "Dirty Sanchez."

After the appearance with Stern, Schmidt will appear live with MSNBC's Rita Cosby and debate Diamond (a.k.a. Screech) live on her show. However, it is unclear what the former Saved by the Bell star will be debating. His technique? Do we event want to know?

Schmidt tells TMZ the tape will be available soon for $49.95 though a major distributor.

The tape is already causing a media ruckus, inspiring a parody of the video on the season premiere or SNL as well as The Tonight Show.

Speculation is swirling that the Dustin Diamond sex tape was released with full knowledge of He Who Dealt the Dirty Sanchez as a publicity stunt -- regardless of what the actor and comedian claims. Regardless, we'll keep you updated as more info is made available.

T.H. Gossip delights in bringing you the pop culture observations of ESPN's Bill Simmons, a.k.a. the Sports Guy, along with the rants of his lovely wife, a.k.a. the Sports Gal.

In the most recent edition of Bill's mailbag, he responds to reader questions about sports, sure... but more importantly, he addresses the current happenings on Laguna Beach as well as the Screech sex tape. See below.

-------

Scott (New York, NY): What is Cameron's problem on Laguna Beach? Can't he see that Trish is a thousand times hotter than that wet blanket Jessica? And yes I am 26 years old and watch a show about high school kids.

Bill Simmons: The funniest thing about Cameron (below, right) is that he has no discernable personality at all. There's just nothing there. He's a complete zero. And yet every girl is falling over themselves for him. Hey, guess what, ladies? In 15 years, he'll be a bald guy with a huge head and no personality! Enjoy.

Steve (Menlo Park, CA): Have you heard that the actor (Dustin Diamond, below left) who played Screech has a sex video coming out? What's the title got to be? I'm voting for Saved by the Smell.

Bill Simmons: Is that true? Is that a step up or a step down from appearing in  Celebrity Boxing?

Melanie McFarland of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer brings us a long-awaited updates on the Dustin Diamond sex tape:

First, allow me to clarify why I referred to Saved by the Smell (gross) as "accidental porn," a phrase some have taken issue with.

In my opinion, if a person makes a dirty video and it stays in his home under lock and key, it's a dirty video. If he makes one and it leaks out into the public, it's accidental, and it's porn.

However, after reading these highlights, excerpted from a press release courtesy of the Headline News program Showbiz Tonight, I'm not sure what the public can call the Screech sex tape... other than disgusting.

Here's what the release said:

-- The sex tape got out because Diamond and some buddies have a "monthly gathering" wherein they exchange such tapes (emphasis mine) which earn points based on "what [we're] able to accomplish" on the tapes: "We do it almost like poker. [The tape] could have been left out in anybody's home, machine, computer."

[THG NOTE: What the f*&k is wrong with these people? And is former SBTB co-star Mario Lopez, a.k.a. A.C. Slater, one of the aforementioned buddies?]

-- "The people that are involved in this group [of friends who exchange tapes] are all 'profile people.'" Diamond doesn't believe any of those people leaked the tape, but perhaps a significant other of one of them did.

-- Diamond admits the tape has "caused turmoil on the home front."

[THG NOTE: That's a shocking revelation right there]

-- "We've been doing it for a while, and we didn't think it was a problem. Apparently, it is a problem."

-- Diamond's words for that sick bastard David Hans Schmidt, the man peddling the tape (also known as the "Sultan of Sleaze"): "You're a scumbag."

-- Diamond also says he will fight this "tooth and nail" to fight the distribution of the tape, and that while Schmidt may have won "the little battles, he won't win the war -- nice try, though!"

[THG NOTE: We're pulling for Screech. Bad. Believe it. Because if the tape gets out, we are going to be forced to watch it in order to tell you about it. Because we're T.H. Gossip. And there are things we would rather look at than Dustin Diamond giving some skank the Dirty Sanchez -- one such thing would be our awesome gallery of Kristin Cavallari pictures]

-- Diamond denies the rumor that he secretly knew about the tape's release and was hoping it would boost his career. He says the tape was "private" and not meant for anybody else. It was not released with his approval and he does not condone its being out there.

-- Will Diamond eventually cash in on this tape, if offered a distribution deal? Will he never have to worry about foreclosure again? "We'll cross that bridge when we come to it."

So the Gossip has seen portions of the Dustin Diamond sex tape, which we talked about yesterday, and can confirm that it is real... and not at all pleasant.

Yes, the former Saved by the Bell star, who warmed our hearts as the lovable Screech Powers, starts off the video in a bathtub, narrating what's to come. The tape ends with Diamond introducing one of the women to a "Dirty Sanchez."

If you don't know what that euphamism means, look it up. Online. Preferably at work, when your boss is expecting a report from you and is about to come asking for it.

Suffice it say, it is unbelievably graphic.

For now, you can watch the clips at TMZ.com. But you soon may be able to own this thing, if that's what you're into. David Hans Schmidt, who has become famous in the sex tape industry by peddling videos featuring Paris Hilton, Colin Farrell and others, claims ownership to the Screech tape.

It was shot in a hotel, with Diamond holding the camera and narrating, as he engages two women in various combinations and positions. He does not say if this tape is being made to raise money for his battle against foreclosure.

Schmidt is reportedly out shopping the tape, which supposedly has generated a good amount of interest. What's unusual is that some mainstream media companies are interesting in purchasing the rights.

Screech, you are a dirty, dirty man. Christina Aguilera has nothing on you.

Kid Rock. Paris Hilton. Tommy Lee. Colin Farrell. Screech Powers.

If you think these five celebrities have nothing in common... well, that was true until we learned about an alleged Dustin Diamond sex tape.

Let that sink in for just a moment.

Yes, believe it or not, there is another Dustin Diamond story generating buzz in the tabloids.

This, the third time in the past several months that we've been forced to talk to you about the guy, is by far the best. Although his battles against foreclosure and muggers weren't unfunny by any means.

Rumor has it that Dustin isn't just a threesome-loving stud -- he gets down and dirty with his hoe-train. The operative word being dirty. Read on.

Diamond, who recently proclaimed to the world that he was completely broke, apparently isn't letting that stop him from getting his freak on. A tape has allegedly surfaced in which the former Saved By the Bell star cavorts with two unidentified women.

Even more shocking is an act that Diamond engages in with the women which involves bodily excretions and a disturbing act known to those in college frat houses as the "Dirty Sanchez."

TMZ broke the story and called DD's reps, who (stunningly) did not return calls.

Rush & Molloy report this morning that the tape is in the hands of Phoenix-based agent David Hans Schmidt, who has brokered deals for other celebrity sex tapes, and that Schmidt is shopping the digital video tape around to Hustler and Vivid Video, among other outlets.

It might not exactly be Oscar-caliber material, but Diamond's manager, Roger Paul, seems to be at least a little happy about the development for his client, a stand-up comedian.

"Dustin has been trying to escape the Screech typecast. So this may help me get more bookings," says Paul, who says he hasn't seen the tape.

The video reportedly features Zach Morris and A.C. Slater as the pizza delivery guy and cable repair man, respectively, who just happen to stop by Screech's house to discover him waxing these broads. Disturbing, we know. But admit it, you laughed.

Dustin Diamond, a.k.a. Screech Powers, told a Tampa radio station that a woman tried to mug him in his hotel in Omaha, Neb., on Monday.

Really. We are not making this up. Go to TMZ and look... and listen to the clip of him talking about it. Who mugs Screech?

Dustin Diamond Gasp

Diamond, the former Saved By the Bell star and comedian who has been battling to save his Wisconsin house from foreclosure, was on the MJ Morning Show on 93.3 WFLZ this morning, detailing the incident.

According to his account, a woman, armed with mace, busted into his hotel room and apparently was only able get away with some PSP games, which Diamond was able to recover. He was able, at one point, to pin the woman with the hotel door, prompting her to cry out rape.

Not sure what's funnier here -- the fact that Dustin Diamond was mugged (by a chick, no less), or that we already had Dustin Diamond news up on our site to link back to.

A.C. Slater? Rolling in his grave right now.

Former Saved By The Bell star and current standup comedian Dustin Diamond is having a rough go of it, and not just because Lisa Turtle won't reciprocate his undying affections.

The 29-year old actor, who will forever be synonymous with his Bell character, Screech Powers, needs to raise $250,000 in the next 30 days to save his house from foreclosure.

Dustin Diamond Photo

Diamond bought a gray, two-story house in Port Washington, Wisconsin, upon the conclusion of Bell and its many spinoffs, in which he also starred. The foreclosure order was filed against him last month, as he has been unable to settle a land contract dispute with his New York-based lender.

To keep his house, Diamond is trying to sell nearly t-shirts at $15-20 a pop to keep the property. The front of the shirts read "Save My House" and "I paid $15 to save Screech's house" is printed on the back. For an extra $5, you can get an autographed version, in which Diamond will sign his name and tell his lender adversary that he can [expletive] himself.

He recently made an appearance on Howard Stern's radio show to plead his case.

While it would be fitting for Zack Morris to appear out of nowhere and admit he staged all of this as one of his elaborate practical jokes, Diamond is clearly having his bell rung (pun very much intended) in reality. Poor guy. Hopefully he can sell enough shirts. Failing that, perhaps former co-star and future Dancing With The Stars participant Mario Lopez can bail him out.

Or, in a last-ditch effort, he could always go the Elizabeth Berkeley route, if you know what we're talking about. We're talking about appearing in an NC-17 flick about strippers.
