Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Dustin Diamond
Mark-Paul Gosselaar disputes his Saved by the Bell co-star Dustin Diamond's claims that the show was one big drug-fueled orgy behind the scenes.
"Everything I've heard about his book is that it's very negative, and I don't remember those things," Gosselaar told HuffPost Live this week. "My experience on the show was very positive."

Diamond's 2009 memoir Behind the Bell is the basis for Lifetime's upcoming movie The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story. Though Gosselaar admits that he doesn't discussSaved by the Bell much, he says it's only because his memories of the show are sparse. "I don't mind talking about it, I just don't really remember that time," he said. "But also, everything I do remember was extremely positive."
Gosselaar appeared on HuffPost Live with his Franklin & Bash co-star Breckin Meyer, who was less reserved when it came to his thoughts on Diamond. "This guy's such a di--," Meyer told HuffPo Live. "I don't know Dustin at all, but ... the Dustin Diamond thing is just so silly. It's just so negative and it always bums me out."
Meyer also expressed skepticism about Diamond's alleged sex tape. "That's not him!" Meyer said of the tape. "Screech is not packing that. Get the hell out of here. He doesn't have six Beldings beneath him. There's no f---ing way. You're full of s---, Dustin. Suck it."
