MILWAUKEE, June 19 (UPI) -- Former "Saved by the Bell" funny man Dustin "Screech" Diamond is in danger of losing his home.
Diamond's house is being foreclosed on because of $250,000 he owes under a land contract, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Monday.
But Diamond has come up with a plan to keep his Port Washington, Wis., property for a bit longer. He announced during an appearance on Howard Stern's satellite radio show that he has started a Web site, www.getDshirts.com, where he is selling t-shirts for 15 dollars apiece to try and save his home.
He is planning on selling 30,000 "I paid $15.00 to save Screeech's house," T-shirts, with the third "e" added, he said, to offer a technical separation between the fund-raising shirt from the "Screech Powers" character on a copyrighted show.
"I think there's a lot of people who think it's funny," Diamond said. "It's not a hoax. I wouldn't draw this kind of attention to myself for nothing."
