Saved by the Bell Star Feels 'Hurt' After Snub

Newser — Rob Quinn

Saved by the Bell is returning—but Lark Voorhies, who played Lisa Turtle, says she wasn't invited. In an interview with Dr. Oz that will air in full Wednesday, Voorhies says she felt "slighted and hurt" that she wasn't asked to be part of the reboot or other events involving cast members, including a 2015 Tonight Show reunion, reports NBC.

Voorhies, whose mother had said she has bipolar disorder, says she "also realized that having this puzzling disorder may have played a major part in that factual decision." Other former cast members, including Mario Lopez, Elizabeth Berkley, and Mark-Paul Gosselaar, will play a role in the reboot on NBC's upcoming Peacock streaming service.

Gosselaar's Zack Morris character is now the governor of California.
