This One's Called: "Mr. Belding Busted Me!"
"Recently, Dustin Diamond made a guest appearance at an ECW wrestling match in Newport, Delaware. When my friend told me about it, I was appalled that poor dustin was stuck doing stuff like this now, but later, I learned that he is actually a big wrestling fan. Anyway, he was charging $10 for autographed Polaroids with him, $20 for signed Saved by the Bell scripts, and I believe $5 for autographs. Naturally, I got a Polaroid (that turned out disgustingly bad) and a script. Dustin was very nice, very professional and polite. He's pretty darn handsome now, too. He was very interested in my then-14-month-old son and had on an awesome Donkey Kong T-shirt. The wrestlers were frightening, so I left early, but I heard he put on a skit between some matches."

He's Got a Great Personality
"I used to hang out at Disneyland a lot, because I had no life I suppose. A couple of times while waiting for the show Fantasmic to begin, I saw Dustin Diamond and his dad. We talked one time for about two hours, and he was a really nice guy. He had a beautiful girl with him, and actually had time to talk. He is kind of goofy in real life, too. But he can also carry on a great conversation. My impression of him is one of a down-to-earth guy who hasn't forgotten what life really is about." (Posted: October 2000)
