Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Breckin Meyer Bash Dustin Diamond: He's Such a D*ck
By Antoinette Bueno
Franklin & Bash stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Breckin Meyer stopped by HuffPost Live to talk about their hit TNT series, when the talk turned to Gosselaar's former Saved by the Bell co-star Dustin Diamond, 37.
Given that Diamond's tell-all book about his time on the beloved series Behind the Bell wasn't exactly positive, not surprisingly, they weren't inclined to say nice things about the controversial former Celebrity Fit Club star, aka Screech.
"It is negative -- that I must say. Everything I've heard about his book is that it is negative, and I don't remember those things because my experience on the show was very positive," Gosselaar, 40, said.
But Meyer wasn't so kind.
"This guy's such a d*ck," Meyer, 40, said bluntly. "I don't know Dustin at all, but everything I read ... the Dustin Diamond thing is just so silly. It's so negative, and it always bums me out. I know everybody from the show … I know Elizabeth [Berkley], Tiffani [Thiessen], Mario [Lopez] and everyone has nothing but awesome times to say about that, except for Dustin, and I'm like, 'That might be you, bro.'"
Gosselaar also stressed that though he doesn't have any involvement with the highly anticipated new Lifetime movie about the '90s comedy, he has nothing against talking about the show that made him a star.
" ... When people say, 'Oh you don't like talking about it,' it's like, 'No, I don't mind talking about it, it's just that I don't remember.' But also everything I do remember was extremely positive. We still have friendships from it."
Asked if they thought Diamond was making up some aspects of his scandalous book, Meyer once again didn't hold back -- before insulting his infamous sex tape.
"I think a bunch of it's bullsh*t. I think he's so full of sh*t," the former Clueless star said. "Like his sex tape -- it's all bullsh*t. You saw it -- that's not him. C'mon, Screech is not packing that. Get the hell out of here. He doesn't have six Beldings beneath him, there's no f*cking way. You're full of sh*t Dustin - suck it."
