Tiffani Thiessen may have been a '90s It girl, but now she's a cooking queen, thanks to her show, Dinner at Tiffani's. If you're hoping that means she'll soon reprise her role as Bayside High's reigning cheerleader, Kelly Kapowski, you may have to keep dreaming.
"I don't think you'd be able to get all of us," Thiessen said when asked if she could foresee a reboot of Saved by the Bell. "The whole thing we did with Jimmy Fallon -- making fun of it in a really light, fun, smart way -- was the way we wanted to do it."
The 42-year-old actress is referring to the epic sketch she took part in on The Tonight Show last year with the main cast of Saved by the Bell, which perfectly recreated the iconic Bayside High.
While there might not be a Saved by The Bell reboot in the works, there will be a mini-reunion on the second season of Thiessen's cooking show when her former co-star, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, makes an appearance.
"He comes on with his beautiful wife [Catriona]," Thiessen said. "You'll get to see that some time this season."
A lot has changed in the two decades since Saved by the Bell left the air, especially Thiessen's hairstyle. She pointed out the difference after we showed her one of her earliest ET interviews from 1992. "At least the bangs were a little more calmed down," Thiessen said. "I remember when I first started the show, it was a lot of Aqua Net."
Dinner at Tiffani's airs Wednesdays on Cooking Channel.
