Dustin Diamond Plays Dress Up

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Actor Dustin Diamond has spent his entire career trying to make people laugh, but he was making his mom giggle way before his show biz days.

In fact, Diamond, who played Screech Powers on Saved By The Bell, discovered his gift for humor in the women’s section of a department store.

It seems 8-year-old Diamond was shopping with his mom when she dragged him into a department store and sat down to rest.

Diamond was “bored” so he entertained himself by hopping up on the store’s mannequin display, putting on the mannequin’s hat and coat, and posing.

He admits: “I was just trying to make my mom laugh.”

He continues, “Some Japanese tourists saw me goofing off and took pictures of me, and when the store manager walked up I froze still so I wouldn’t get in trouble.”

Diamond’s mom knew she had a diamond in the rough and he adds, “I got into show business after that, and the rest is history.”

Diamond can currently be seen on Celebrity Fit Club 5, which airs Sundays on VH1.
