Because the internet is consumed with All Things Bayside this August 2014 (the 25th Anniversary Month of Saved by the Bell’s premiere), The Daily Beast gave the series’ most-hated alum an opportunity to redeem himself. Nestled into a long, “at times, over-defensive and a little manic” interview was Diamond’s admission that his rebel boy apex — a self-produced sex tape — was completely doctored. How does one stage such a shameless publicity/cash grab doomed for failure anyway? Two words, future famewhores of America: stunt wang.
“I put the thing together. I got a stunt wang. I’m not an idiot. I’m not going to really put myself out there. So I got a stunt person to come in. And I thought, what if this thing makes $3 million? That’s nothing to scoff at. But after that people looked at me dirty, like, “He does porn.” No, I don’t! I faked that one at a chance for millions. I’m an opportunist, really. Needless to say it did not make millions. But I had to take the shot. I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t.”
Doesn’t that make you look at him in a completely different light?
