Dustin "Screech" Diamond on Scarborough Country (MSNBC) talking abt sex video...
I watched this interview last night. Dustin discusses the tape and how he feels abt it, as well as a portion of the tape is shown (mind you nothing dirty is shown):
Here is an excerpt from the peddler of this tape:
SCARBOROUGH: Get out your barf bags. Welcome back. It‘s the segment I‘ve been dreading all day. You remember him as the dirty Screech Powers on the “hit” show “Saved by the Bell,” “hit” in quotation marks. But now Dustin Diamond is all grown up, and he‘s entered the world of—you guessed it—celebrity sex tapes.
Screech is making his foray into the adult video industry. And the “New York Daily News” says, quote, “He‘s much brawnier than you may remember him.” Oh, my God. I‘m going home. Would somebody call a cab?
If your initial reaction to that is, “Gross,” you‘re not alone, but at least one man thinks this tape is going to sell like hotcakes. He‘s David Hans Schmidt, the agent and porn Web site owner who bought the rights to Screech‘s sex tape and now selling it off to the highest bidder.
David, if you weren‘t SCARBOROUGH COUNTRY‘s official porn merchant, I would call you a sleaze bag for this.
Katrina Szish, you‘re with us from “US Weekly.” You know, I‘ve got to go to you first, Katrina, because I‘ve got to—before I go to David, because I‘ve just—I‘ve got to at least put him in the penalty box for a second for doing this.
KATRINA SZISH, “US WEEKLY”: Oh, yes, absolutely.
SCARBOROUGH: Katrina, a sex tape to revive a sagging career. Please, tell me why.
SZISH: Yes, the career was beyond sagging. The career was gone.
SCARBOROUGH: A flat-liner?
SZISH: Apparently, he—yes, total flat-liner.
SZISH: He couldn‘t sell enough t-shirts or he couldn‘t get enough attention from selling t-shirts to try to save his home, so I guess the next best thing is, “I know. Sex tape!” But Dustin Diamond, I have to say, isn‘t that already a porn star name? He was destined to be a porn star.
SCARBOROUGH: He‘s a double-D, I‘ll tell you what. So the guy was going to lose his house, so he wanted to sell Screech t-shirts. Nobody would give him money, so what do you do? When you‘re in that position, what do you do?
SZISH: Well, I think of other positions, and apparently he did.
SCARBOROUGH: He did. And then, after you do that, you call David Hans Schmidt...
SZISH: You can only hope for a Danny Bonaduce-type comeback, and I think that‘s what Screech is hoping for.
SCARBOROUGH: Yes, exactly. He wants a hit reality TV show...
SZISH: A reality show.
SCARBOROUGH: ... on some cable network.
David, how could you?
DAVID HANS SCHMIDT, BOUGHT SCREECH SEX TAPE: Well, you know, hey, just a second. Hey, Steven, I‘ll get back to you in about 15 minutes. OK, SKG, you‘re next. OK, thank you.
Joe, everybody‘s calling. No, that was Spielberg on the other line. I put out an APB for SKG Dreamworks. APB for SKG. God, Joe, everyone‘s called me today. I‘ve gotten calls from people in the industry, out of the industry. France has called. Germany has called. London‘s called. Everyone‘s called. Australia, down under they want this guy.
SCARBOROUGH: Seriously, are people really calling you, saying they want to bid on the Screech sex tape?
SCHMIDT: I had—unprecedented today, and in exclusive here on “Scarborough and Country,” I got a phone call today from a mogul in New Jersey that‘s not in the industry. He‘s outside of the industry, but he‘s got a lot of bank, and he wants to bid. He doesn‘t know where to start. I do.
SCARBOROUGH: So how much money do you think you can make off of this train wreck?
SCHMIDT: I love it when you guys ask that question. Here‘s exactly what I‘ve got: as much as I can possibly get away with.
SCARBOROUGH: And what do you think that will be?
SCHMIDT: Hopefully a lot. I mean, I‘ve got so many bills to pay, oh, my God, so much debt rising in this company. No, Joe, I mean, this is—we‘ve never had a feverish inquiry at this level before. It was just absolutely unprecedented.
You can go to TMZ.com. We got a little bit of the tape to roll here for you today on this thing. The phones have been ringing off the hook since 4:00 this morning here in West Hollywood. I‘ve been burning up Sunset. I‘ve got back-to-back meetings with Steve Hirsch, Larry Flynt, all the gang tomorrow are going to get a shot at this sucker...
SCARBOROUGH: You know, it remains me of the Bono line in that English song, “Thank God tonight it‘s them instead of me.” I thank God it‘s you instead of me, because—Katrina, why is it that people will pay money for this tape? I mean, is this for him? He thinks he can make more money off of this obviously than selling t-shirts, but that‘s not what it‘s about, is it? It‘s about being so horrendous, so shocking, so bad...
SZISH: Yes, it‘s so bad it‘s good.
SCARBOROUGH: ... that it‘s good, sort of the idea gone awry for “Snakes on a Plane.” And he will get a reality TV show, right?
SZISH: It‘s entirely possible. I think, if he‘s willing to literally prostitute himself this way, I think there are a lot of people out there who are saying, “You know what? Let‘s take advantage of this guy. Let‘s throw him in the middle of a reality TV show and see what he does,” and people will watch, because there is a loyal fan base.
SCARBOROUGH: And Screech, there‘s apparently three ways with Screech.
SZISH: Yes, that‘s what I hear.
SCARBOROUGH: That is “Daily News” says it‘s repulsive.
SZISH: TMI, I like to say, too much information.
SCARBOROUGH: TMI squared. Now, Screech‘s manager, obviously, hopes this is going to boost the fallen star‘s career. He says, quote, “I haven‘t seen the tape. I‘ve heard rumors Dustin has been trying to escape the Screech typecast, so this may help me get more bookings.”
Katrina, how in the hell—first of all, if you‘re a manager and Screech is your client, do you admit that? And, secondly, how does Screech escape the Screech typecast by doing a porn tape?
SZISH: Well, now the name “Screech” has a whole different meaning.
SCARBOROUGH: Yes, exactly.
SZISH: It‘s a whole thing...
SCARBOROUGH: I know where the name came from.
SZISH: Yes, exactly. You know, I think it‘s possible. I think it was great for his manager to be honest, and no one‘s pretending that this is something other than what it is: a desperate attempt for publicity.
SCARBOROUGH: But it does work for Paris Hilton, and it works for other people who make desperate pleas for, you know, publicity, but it won‘t work here, will it?
SZISH: Again, I think it could be a flash in the pan, a momentary reality show, and then we forget about him again until he needs to buy his house back.
SCARBOROUGH: Until he assassinates a president, exactly, or does something else.
SZISH: Or something scary like that.
David, last word to you.
SCHMIDT: Hey, you know, all I want to say is the banter‘s racing. And at $29.95 plus four dollars for shipping and handling, this puppy is going to fly off the shelf, man. And I‘m also going to announce this on your show live tonight: Next week, wake up members of the international press corps. I‘m having a private screening for this in West Hollywood. Everyone‘s invited. SCARBOROUGH COUNTRY is invited to the premiere.
SCARBOROUGH: Oh, God. David, David...
SZISH: I don‘t even know what to say to that.
SCARBOROUGH: David, David—has he no shame, Katrina?
SZISH: It‘s fun, though. Hey, I‘m impressed.
SCHMIDT: I‘m atoning this Sunday, though, like everybody else.
SCARBOROUGH: All right, David, thank you, I think.
SCHMIDT: All right, buddy.
SCARBOROUGH: Don‘t thank you.
Katrina, I will thank you.
SZISH: Thank you.
SCARBOROUGH: God bless you.
SZISH: Thanks for including me in this.
SCARBOROUGH: All right. And, please, take a shower when you get home. I know I will.
SCARBOROUGH: Coming up next, “Hollyweird,” with Chelsea Handler.
SCARBOROUGH: Roll down the top and get the shades out. It‘s time to take a trip to “Hollyweird.”
