I’m not saying I willed this to happen, but on Sept. 4, I wrote about how Dancing with the Stars would bring about the comeback Elizabeth Berkley has been waiting for since Showgirls — and look what’s happening now! With partner Val Chmerkovskiy by her side Oct. 14, Elizabeth boldly recreated her infamous “I’m So Excited” scene from the caffeine pill episode of Saved by the Bell, and now she’s all anyone can talk about.
The cast of Dancing With The Stars Season 17 is full of talented and exciting people, but there are already some cute contenders for their audience cheering section! Sometimes the celebrities’ kids just steal the spotlight — after all, who could forget Season 16 contestant Ingo Rademacher‘s seriously cute 5-year-old son, Peanut, who was ready to offer up high fives and dancing critiques following each performance? The latest crop of celebrity contestants will surely deliver — but will their adorable kids snag all the attention?
Twelve eager celebrity beavers assembled Sept. 4 on Good Morning America to announce themselves as the cast of Dancing with the Stars‘ upcoming 17th season, but one beaver stood head and shoulders above the rest. Or should I say, head and show-girls above the rest? (No, no I shouldn’t.) Anyway, I’m talking about Saved by the Bell grad Elizabeth Berkley, who not only deserves to nab the mirrorball trophy, but needs to.
You may remember Elizabeth Berkley, 38, as brainy babe Jessie Spano on Saved by the Bell, a character that we could all relate to, as she struggled with teenage crushes, friendship drama, and the constant pressures of schoolwork and social obligations! We were excited to find out that Elizabeth has been devoting her time to helping teenage girls who struggle with matters of body image, personal relationships, dating, and much more!
