Bet you didn't know that Bethenny Frankel went to Bayside High! When Frankel, 41, was an aspiring actress in Los Angeles, she worked as a production assistant on Saved by the Bell. In this recently unearthed photo from the set, the young TV personality rocks her best early-'90s look alongside actor Dustin Diamond (who played class nerd Screech). We notice that the gang is wearing their Malibu Sands beach club uniforms, which means the photo was likely shot in early 1991, making Bethenny 20 at the time. (Wikipedia detective work!)
"That's not a terrible picture of me -- I actually like it, with the big hair, the tan, the whole thing," Frankel said when she revealed the photo on her talk show, Bethenny.
This trip down memory lane was prompted by Bethenny's celebrity guest on Tuesday: Mario Lopez, who played A.C. Slater on Saved by the Bell. The Extra host not only remembered his show's former PA, but he confessed that he had a crush on her! Watch the clip below.
"Bethenny was so sweet and so cool with everybody, but I had a little crush on her," said Lopez, 38.
"I didn't know!" a surprised Bethenny replied.
"But you were so cool and now I'm so happy for you and your show," Lopez added.
Aww! We'd like to think that Mario Lopez had a secret crush on us too, watching Saved By the Bell at home on our couches.
While he was on the show, Lopez also demonstrated his remarkable physical fitness skills -- by doing push-ups with Bethenny on his back. (In fairness, she weighs about 12 pounds, so it probably wasn't that hard.) Get a load of Mario's gun show below!
