First there were Saturday morning cartoons. Then we met Zach Morris and his brick of a cell phone and it was sayonara She-Ra! Hello, high school!

We rooted for Zach and Kelly to end up together and we cheered when they did. We watched Jesse Spano turn A.C. Slater into more than just a jock. We were there for Screech's first kiss.

(And those of us who have been around for a really, really long even time remember Good Morning Miss BlissSaved By the Bell's ORIGINAL incarnation.)

So what's happened to our favorite Bayside Tigers since graduation (a.k.a. cancelation)? Well, some of them have had more successful careers than others.

And then there's porn star Dustin Diamond ... or Lark Voorhies. It's a mixed bag. Take a look at the Saved By the Bell cast to see where they are now!

After firing Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd, The View was left with two empty seats at its famous round table. 

Rosie O'Donnell is returning to the show next season, a prospect that has many fans excited. But without an equally strong personality to keep her in check, there's a chance that Rosie may dominate the proceedings. 

The Rosie vs. Elisabeth Hasselbeck debates made for some of The View's best moments (and highest ratings), but it's unlikely that fans would want to tune in for midday fisticuffs season after season.

Plus, the intensity of the O'Donnell and Hasselbeck's arguments ended up taking a toll on the entire panel.

So producers are left with the challenge of keeping the discussions lively (a bunch of women sitting around agreeing with each other doesn't make for great television), without leaving the show's panel and audience bitterly divided.

If you thought Scientology was going to let Leah Remini go quietly, you were wrong.

Last week, Remini spoke out, saying she left the Church over concerns she wasn't able to spend enough time with her daughter.

Now the Church has a different take on it:

"It comes as no surprise that someone as self-absorbed as Leah Remini with an insatiable craving for attention would exploit her former faith as a publicity stunt by rewriting her history with it, including omitting that she was participating in a program to remain a Scientologist by her own choice, as she was on the verge of being expelled for her ethical lapses," a rep for the Church told Us.

YIKES. Not pulling any punches, huh Scientology?

See what other celebs are members of the often controversial Church:

Leah Remini is once again speaking out about her much-talked about decision to leave the Church of Scientology last summer. Why did she do it?

In an interview with Buzzfeed, she cites "dozens" of factors that led to her July 2013 exit, but none as important as her 9-year-old daughter, Sofia.

"She was getting to the age where the acclimation into the Church would have to start," Remini explains, referring to Scientology's "auditing" process.

That brought up memories of the actress' own experience with the Church as a child, and how it affected her relationship with her mother, Vicki.

Vicki moved the family to a Scientology compound in Clearwater, Fla., shortly before Remini's 10th birthday, and spent a lot of time at the Church.

"I started thinking of my own childhood and how I grew up resenting my mother because she was never home," she says of that time in her life.

Leah Remini has been eliminated from the ballroom. "I have to thank Tony," Remini said of her partner. "I have to thank everyone here, especially Tony."

"This was an incredible experience and if every season will be like this, I'll live a long life," Dovolani said, despite the obvious disappointment.

Bill Engvall was spared, amazingly, once again last night.

Here's a rundown of the scores from last night's show:

Leah Remini has opened up further about her leaving the Church of Scientology after she was subpoenaed to testify in a new lawsuit against the church.

Remini split from the church in July, and feels that Scientologists want her to fail on Dancing With the Stars as an example of what happens if one leaves.

Not the case so far. After last night's non-elimination Dancing With the Stars results show, she's already made the halfway point of the season so far.

When she left the church, the former King of Queens star said she did so because Scientology officials were controlling and intimidating toward members.

In 30 years as a member of the church, Remini served a one-year stint in the elite "Sea Org" religious order and was friends with high-profile members.

Leah Remini said the Church of Scientology is hoping for her to fall flat on Dancing With the Stars after her public defection from the religion this summer.

“The church is looking for me to fail so they can say to parishioners, ‘Look what happens when you leave,’” she told partner Tony Dovolani in a taped segment.

“They’re waiting for me to fail.”

At least through the first Dancing With the Stars results show of the season, the actress had the last laugh, easily coasting into the third episode.

Leah, who called her exodus a “big change for me and my family,” said that with Scientology, “You’re used to taking a lot of negativity on yourself.”

Leah Remini opened up about her split from Scientology on the season premiere of Ellen, saying she's "OK" since leaving the controversial faith this summer.

Not that her break from the church was without consequence.

"We lost friends who can no longer talk to us who are still in the organization," Leah Remini said, noting that current members can't talk to ex-members.

"But we have other friends, who are not in the church, who have stood by us and that's all we can ask for," Remini added, and Ellen said she's one of them.

Asked why she left, Remini's answer was similar to but less revealing than past explanations she's given, saying her mom got her into it when she was young.

The Jersey Shore star will make her post-pregnancy return to ... doing whatever it is she does, while Remini also makes for an interesting story.

Remini, now one of the world's most famous ex-Scientologist, recently underwent a very public split from the church after raising questions about it.

Specifically, she inquired about leader David Miscavige's wife Shelly, filing a missing persons report regarding her alleged disappearance in July.

In addition to Remini and Snooki, TMZ says Elizabeth Berkley, Amber Riley from Glee, Christina Milian, and Keyshawn Johnson will also be Dancing.

The LAPD has closed its investigation regarding Shelly Miscaviage, the wife of Scientology leader David Miscaviage - and the church is livid with Leah Remini.

The investigation was launched after police received reports that Shelly had not been seen publicly in six years. Remini filed the missing persons report.

Officials found the missing persons allegation "unfounded," however.

Police met with Shelly Miscaviage face to face and closed the case, though it's still unclear whether she is or ever was being held against her will.

In any case, the Church of Scientology is furious with Remini.
