Sing it with me now. “Well, I wake up in the morning, and the ‘larm gives out a warning, and I don’t think I’ll ever make it on time. By the time I grab my books, and I give myself a look, I’m at the corner, just in time to see the bus fly by. It’s all right, ‘cos I’m Saved by the Bell.”
I was born in 1983 which made Saved By The Bell pretty much a major staple in my childhood. So of course when I see Elizabeth Berkley I can’t help but think about brainy, over-achieving Jessie Spano. That’s not really fair though because Elizabeth has done way more than just cheesy sitcoms, including her newest stint as reality television star with a mission.
MTV has given Berkley her own show based on a project she started called Ask Elizabeth. An MTV exec said, “She does these workshops around the country with teen girls and gets them to really open up about their issues, like self-esteem and body issues. We had been looking for a program that tackled the same issues, so it seemed like a perfect match.”
This isn’t the first time Berkley has given her time to a good cause. Earlier in the summer Ecorazzi premiered an exclusive video hosted by our very own deliciously British Anna Griffin featuring a bevy of celebs, inlcluding Elizabeth, who took the time to stop by Whole Foods and show their support for the Feed 100 Campaign. And speaking of food, Elizabeth is also long-time vegetarian (and I’m like 96% positive she’s vegan…can anyone confirm?) and famously posed in a dress made out of lettuce for PETA…which you KNOW gives her like super extra points in my book!
