Zack Morris and Kelly Kapowski were the epitome of high school sweethearts, but true “Saved by the Bell” fans will also recall that Zack was once swept up in summer love with a different brunette named Stacey Carosi. Played by Leah Remini, Stacey was Malibu Beach Resort’s resident babe. And though Leah’s reunion with Mark-Paul Gosselaar is still in the making, she did cross paths with ol’ “SBTB” co-star Mario Lopez yesterday, and couldn’t resist digging into his dimples.
The comedic actress appeared on “Extra” to promote her new ABC sitcom, “Family Tools,” but was momentarily distracted by Mario’s cheeks. Can’t say we blame her! Luckily, the married host took the affectionate pinch in stride, and even tweeted about Leah’s teasing. “Thanks for the hard time today @LeahRemini!” he wrote. “It was fun to catch up.. I couldn’t stop laughing… :)” Glad to see not all “SBTB” mini-reunions are as awkward as Dennis Haskins and Tiffani Thiessen’s “Today Show” run-in. Now that was rough!
