Elizabeth Berkley Explains Why The 'Saved By The Bell' Cast Have Been No-Shows At 'DWTS'


Elizabeth Berkley heads to "Dancing With The Stars" rehearsal.

From ninja training to ballroom dancing, the former "Saved by the Bell" stars have certainly gone down very different paths since the series' end, but they'll always remain linked by the show that made them all household names. And though time tends to test even the best relationships, Elizabeth Berkley, the actress behind Bayside brainiac Jesse Spano, recently told People that despite "SBTB" wrapping twenty years ago, the cast's friendships remain strong today.

"Even if we don't see each other for a long time, it's a connection that we'll have forever," she told the magazine after last week's "Dancing with the Stars." Unfortunately, her old pals have been absent from the ballroom since her dance debut, but Liz insists it's only because everyone's going through major life changes lately. "Mark-Paul [Gosselaar] just had a baby, which is the only reason he hasn't been here. Mario [Lopez] has been traveling," she explains. And as for Tiffani Thiessen, she "just finished working," but you can expect to see her in the audience soon!

"She's going to come. She's a very dear friend. We're just trying to figure out [the time]." We bet nobody's more excited than Elizabeth's partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, who will finally come face to face with his childhood crush!
