Dustin Diamond Alleges Hook Ups, Steroids & Drugs on 'Saved By the Bell'

Dustin Diamond's tell-all book, 'Behind the Bell', is set to be released later this week and apparently it will contain plenty of fiction.

In speaking about his book with 'Us Weekly', Diamond, who played Screech on the Saturday morning comedy, alleges everything from frequent hook ups on set to rampant drug use.

"I could smell a certain 'smoke,' wafting from the crack" underneath his castmates' dressing rooms, says the now 32-year-old who filed for bankruptcy in 2001 and tried to sell T-shirts to save his house.

"If Kelly (Tiffani Thiessen) was interested in Slater (Mario Lopez) one week, then backstage there was a lot going between them in Mario's room," he says. "Then, if Jessie (Elizabeth Berkley) kisses Zack (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), then you know Elizabeth Berkley is going in Mark-Paul's room."

Diamond also contends that Gosselaar, who played Zack used steroids to bulk up: "He suddenly exploded with manliness, loading 25 pounds of muscle on his once-scrawny frame in, oh, about a month."

Asked about the accusations, Gosselaar's response is equally hilarious: "We weren't in rehab and Mr. Belding wasn't my crack dealer."

None of the cast has stayed in touch with Dustin Diamond since their 'Saved By the Bell' days and it's not hard to see why.

"I never saw anything like this. Yes, the kids dated early on but nothing more than just kids dating. Dustin is way off the mark with this book," Ed Alonzo, who played Max, tells 'Radar'. "I had a great time working on the Bell and miss the cast. I do keep in touch with some of them, but not Dustin."
