It was the Dancing With the Stars reunion that fans of Saved By the Bell had been dreaming about when Elizabeth Berkley stopped by to be interviewed by her former co-star, Mario Lopez, for a segment to air on Extra.
Although Elizabeth was there to promote this season of Dancing With the Stars, kids, tweens and teens of the 90′s were more excited about seeing the reunion of A.C. Slater and Jessie Spano, Mario Lopez and Elizabeth Berkley’s alter egos from the hit Saturday morning sitcom.
But Saved By the Bell is not the only show these two now have in common. Mario competed on season 3 of Dancing With the Stars with his partner — and former flame – Karina Smirnoff coming in second place to Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke.
After an awkward meeting with her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, in which he teased her about Kelly Kapowski and admitted that he learned English while watching Saved By the Bell, Elizabeth and Val went on to score a respectable 24 points.
Which should have been no surprise given that Elizabeth is one of quite a few contestants on this season of Dancing With the Stars — Corbin Bleu, Valerie Harper and Christina Milian included — with years of dance experience, causing some fans to cry foul. Elizabeth Berkley has even admitted,“I was blessed enough to have parents that got me into dance from a very young age. I don’t know if they knew that it was going to be something that I was going to devote my whole life to. … When they noticed pretty early on, though, that I had a propensity for it, as well as a desire to do it almost on a daily basis — which then turned into about 17 lessons a week — it was me pushing and driving them … It’s been a profound thing in my life.”
