Okay, time out everybody. A new  Saved By The Bell- themed diner and bar is coming to Chicago’s Wicker Park to help you relive your childhood ’90s nostalgia, reports the Chicagoist.

It is reportedly not connected to NBC, which aired the program, nor the production company Rysher Entertainment. But it’s sure to dredge up some nostalgia, and maybe even attract a guest star or two.

Lark Voorhies' Secret Talent
Huffington Post - over 3 years
She may be best known for her performance as the super-shallow Lisa Turtle on "Saved By The Bell," but 10 years later, Lark Voorhies' life has taken an artistic turn. On an upcoming episode of VH1's "Miss U Much," Voorhies opened up about her love of painting, which she's been doing for three years. "I was good right off the bat. The first one is of a tree, and it's beautiful!" she says in the clip above, obtained by Entertainment Tonight. "I just got inspired right away." So where can you procure one of Voorhies' paintings? Nowhere, because she "keeps them all to [her]self." But if you're looking to see her whip out her acting skills again, she has another project in the works. "I do have a feature film that I worked on. My first feature film that I wrote, executive produced and starred in. All that good stuff," she said. "Miss U Much," a series that takes a look at where stars of the past few decades are now, is hosted by actress Catherine Reitman. "There ...

'Saved By The Bell' Actress Denies Having Mental Health Issues
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Last month, former "Saved By The Bell" star Lark Voorhies' mother claimed her daughter is "mentally ill," and now the actress is speaking out to deny the claims. In an interview with "Entertainment Tonight," the 38-year-old responded to the allegations, telling host Christina McLarty: "I have no worries myself, nor do I exude, exhibit or possess within my living stratus any reason why someone should worry [on] my behalf. ... It's completely fictional." Voorhies' mother, Tricia, told People magazine that her daughter was battling bipolar disorder, explaining, "There are things that have traumatized her. I care deeply about my daughter and I want her to resume her life."

WATCH: 'Saved By The Bell' Actress Makes Bizarre Statements
Huffington Post - over 4 years
In a bizarre video posted on TMZ, "Saved by the Bell" star Lark Voorhies denied her mother's claims in a recent People magazine story that she is suffering from bipolar disorder. But Voorhies was hardly coherent in the video shot in Los Angeles this week, where she appeared in a parking lot of some sort with a male friend. When asked whether the People magazine story was true, Voorhies stammered out: "Well I think it quite comical... I'll put it to you like this, outside contract, everything is funny. Beautiful pictures though, don't you think?" The 38-year-old actress appeared to be dazed and had difficulty completing her sentences. When asked about her spirituality, Voorhies said: "We're all built on it. We're all attuned to its calling and informant connection. I think that pretty much completes the statement regarding that context." Voorhies played Lisa Turtle on the long-running hit '90s series "Saved By the Bell." Earlier this month, the star's mother, Tricia Vo ...

'Saved By The Bell' Star Lark Voorhies Has Bipolar Disorder, Says Her Mother
Business Insider - over 4 years
Actress Lark Voorhies, famous for playing "Lisa" on five seasons of "Saved By The Bell," today only vaguely resembles her former sitcom self. After a recent interview on Yahoo's "The Yo Show" (see below video) revealed an out of sorts, rambling and nearly unrecognizable Voorhies, rumors started to swirl that the 38-year-old actress was on drugs, or has had loads of plastic surgery. The claims were only made more substantial after Voorhies then gave an interview to People magazine, in which "it was clear something wasn't right ... [Voorhies] would frequently stop mid-sentence and stare off, often mumbling to herself or to others who weren't there." But Voorhies' mother, who lives with her daughter in Pasadena, tells People that the odd behavior isn't a result of drugs or alcohol, but that her daughter has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. "There are things that have traumatized her," her mother Tricia revealed to the mag. "I care deeply about my daughter and I want her to r ...

Everybody’s Talking About Lisa Turtle’s Face
Beleb Dirty Laundry - almost 5 years
In March, we were all talking about what happened to Ashley Judd‘s face. In April, we were all talking about Ashley Judd talking about us talking about her face. But now it’s May, and Ashley Judd has gotten enough press about her face, so now we have to talk about something else. And that something else is – you guessed it – Lisa Turtle’s face. Lisa Turtle, known to some by her mortal name, Lark Voorhies, starred on everyone’s favorite high school sitcom, Saved by the Bell, in the early 90′s. That means that during the last season of the show, in 1993, she was just 19 years old. And now, nearly 20 years after that, her face looks a little different. Unbelievable, right?
