Exclusive: Dennis Haskins AKA Mr. Belding On Lark Voorhies: “She Is fighting Through Some Stuff”
Lark Voorhies, best known for her role as Lisa Turtle in the 90’s sitcom, Saved by the Bell recently faced public scrutiny after a rare appearance at a Hollywood premiere.
Last week, the actress attended the premiere for Where We Started, and while the star posed for the cameras, it was clear that the actress had a bit of a make-up malfunction. The following day, the blog-verse blew up and unfortunately sparked negative attention for the star.
“I’ve seen Lark recently, she is doing great,” Dennis Haskins aka Saved by the Bell’s, Mr. Belding told HipHollywood while at the Los Angeles premiere for A Million Ways to Die.
“She is fighting through some stuff and I love her to death. She was always one of my favorites and she always will be. Lark’s the best, she is the best. She came to my birthday party back in November.”
As for advice he gives to those facing criticism in Hollywood, Haskins tells us, “You should never have to defend yourself or explain yourself if you’re being honest and true. If you’re being who you are, be who you are.”
Lark’s rare appearance earlier this month was the first in several years. Not only has the star faced negative reports about undergoing plastic surgery, but in 2012, Lark’s mother did an exclusive interview with People magazine and revealed that her daughter, now 40, was diagnosed with bipolar disease.
“There are things that have traumatized her,” her mother Tricia told the publication. “I care deeply about my daughter and I want her to resume her life.”
