Screech, Sad

I wonder what happened to all of his Saved By The Bell Money. Is he one of those kid stars whose parents took all of his money?

I read that he also told Howard how big something else is..



June 18, 2006

MILWAUKEE --More than a bell is needed to save Dustin Diamond this time around. Diamond, best known as geeky Screech Powers on the 1989-1993 teen comedy series "Saved by the Bell," is selling T-shirts with his photo on them to try to raise $250,000 so he doesn't lose his gray two-story house under a foreclosure order.

"If the public didn't care, I as an entertainer wouldn't have been a success," he said.

Diamond, 29, is trying to sell nearly 30,000 shirts -- at $15 or $20 (autographed) each -- to supplement the income he makes as a standup comic so he doesn't have to move from his Port Washington home, about 25 miles north of Milwaukee.

The T-shirt has a photo of Diamond holding a sign that says, "Save My House." The back of the shirt reads, "I paid $15.00 to save Screeech's house." The third "e" was added to get around copyright laws, he said.

He's selling the shirts on his Web site: http://www.getdshirts.com.

The foreclosure order was filed last month in Ozaukee County Circuit Court.

Diamond appeared on Howard Stern's satellite radio show Tuesday to plead his case. "I'm doing great with my comedy, but this is definitely a low point," he said. "Real life comes in and affects you."

He's done a handful of reality shows (Surreal Life, Celebrity Boxing, and some dating show)...I suppose those didn't pay well either.

the guy who was supposed to help screech save his house from foreclosure did absolutely nothing about it, which is why he went on howard stern to tell his story. i hope everything works out for screech.

In better news - apparently screech is hung like a bull.

So, he's got that going for him...

We should feel sorry for him and buy t-shirts because he squandered away all the money he made during Saved By The Bell and now can't pay for his house? Sorry If this were us, I seriously doubt that he would care.

I don't plan to give one penny to dear old Dustin. However, he has said on many occasions that his SBTB money was squandered by his parents while he was still a minor--which led him to move to the relativly inexpensive Milwaukee in the first place. So I do feel sorry for him in that regard.

I've heard numerous differing things regarding that. However, I don't see why we should pay for his house...

Donate money to a medical or environmental foundation or help save Screech? Lol. Thousands of people have home foreclosure issues. Most of them nobody would ever buy a t-shirt from. I loved Screech as a kid, but in all honesty, it's save Dustin's house not save Screeches.

Apparently back in the day when he was making the rounds as a special celebrity guest, he'd balk at any mention of Saved By The Bell, and now he wants to make money by selling t-shirts with the name of his SBTB character on it to save his house?

How convienient.
