    Screech Might Lose Port Washington Home
    Actor Selling Shirts To Save House


    UPDATED: 11:41 am CDT June 16, 2006

    MILWAUKEE -- More than a bell is needed to save Dustin Diamond this time around.

    Diamond is best known as geeky Screech Powers on the teen TV comedy series "Saved by the Bell," which ran from 1989 to 1993.

    Now, the actor is selling T-shirts with his mug on them to try to raise $250,000 so he doesn't lose his gray, two-story house in Port Washington under a foreclosure order.

    The shirts feature him standing in front of a shack holding a sign that reads, "Save my House."

    The back reads, "I paid 15 dollars to save Screeech's house."

    Diamond said that his parents spent some of his money from the show and substantial tax miscalculations left him in debt as a young adult. He filed bankruptcy in 2001 in California.

    Diamond appeared on shock jock Howard Stern's satellite radio show Wednesday morning to plead his case.

    The shirts are being sold on his Web site.

    He came to my college and did standup. Nobody went, as far as I remember. He filled like an eigth of the auditorium.

    Zach was on NYPD Blue for a few years before the series ended, so at least he has worked recently.

    Screech really needs to get a job. TBS is airing Saved by the Bell again so maybe he'll get some more royalty checks.

    Zack is on Commander in Chief I think. Lisa was on soaps for a while, but I guess she quit because she was afraid of doing sex scenes?!

    PS. Lisa Turtle was HAWT!

    He was on Howard Stern the other day hocking his shirts. $20 autographed. He suckered Howard and George Takei into buying a couple, and he's going to open for Artie at some comedy place in Pittsburgh on July 7th.

    Damn. Does it make me some insane conspiracy theorist to think that's just some kind of "hey, notice me" ploy?

    I dunno, the idea of Screech living on the street is pretty funny.

    I had no idea he was living in WI. That's how off the radar the guy is.

    He should really sell these at Summerfest.

    Well from what I read about his Howard Sterno interview he is hung like an elephant. He could be a porn star with what he has.

    Maybe somebody finally sued the CIA over the mind control techniques used in Saved by the Bell and this some sort of front to get money to pay it off.
