i will always call him screech or an asshole

I’ve been watching Celebrity Fit Club on VH1. It’s a horrible show, but it’s on right before (or possibly after, I don’t know) Flavor of Love: Charm School, which is an even more horrible show that I’m addicted to. Dustin Diamond Screech, from Saved by the Bell, is on it, and holy shit, he is one giant asshole.

For starters, I’d just like to point out that Screech auditioned for a role on Cool as Ice, but his scenes were cut. This could quite possibly be an explanation where some of his anger comes from. In the May 2006 issue of Stuff magazine, readers voted Diamond the third most annoying former child actor that they would like to punch in the face. His whole plea to get people to buy $15 shirts to help him not foreclose on his house was a farce. (I seriously love Wiikipedia.)

On Celebrity Fit Club, he gets furious when people accidentally call him Screech instead of his real name. He calls it disrespectful and then goes off on some tirade about how he’s been “in the business” for 22 years, so he deserves some respect. He was also in Saved by the Bell: The New Class, which I don’t consider “in the business” or giving him a reason to be respected.

I kind of don’t even want to watch Saved by the Bell in the mornings before work (shut up), because he’s such an ass now. At least Mario Lopez (Slater) was on Dancing with the Stars and is now the host of Pet Star, and even Zack Morris went on to do things other than porn that feature people like Screech and Dirty Sanchez.

Man, I should not be so mad about this, people from Saved by the Bell should always remain wholesome, with the exception of the movie Showgirls.

    Third most annoying former child actor? Who could possibly be more annoying? Maybe Greg Brady? :)

    Wow, I suddenly feel very educated about a show I hardly watched! You should be a teacher…and make your students recreate said wholesomeness…just think how entertaining (and psycho) that would be! You could take a field trip to the thrift store to buy used 80s clothing and make everyone grow mullets and carry ESPRIT bags.

What's up?
