This all sounds very fishy to me. One person said it didn't even make the paper, and yeah...........how come if his house is practically in forclosure he is traveling the country with is PSP and not looking for real work?
Maybe, it just didn't happen! Sounds like someone is crying wolf!

Give me a break. He's lying his ass off again. This dork is a glory hound. First the "I'm going to lose my house, So buy a tshirt from me" now this. He's starving for attention and will make up anything to get it. He's a world class loser.

Anybody think maybe the gal came to his room under her own power (and by his invitation) for some adult fun, and decided to try to make some coin from him, once he told her who he was and put the moves on her?

I'll be surprised if she doesn't file a civil suit for rape or assault.

If you are going to comment on anything, please get your facts correct. Shari. Skippy was on Family Ties, not Cheers.

I believe that this guy is trying anything to get attention. First he expects everyone to send money to pay for his house. If he's this poor, how can he affort expensive psp games? Face it Screech, your minute of fame is over!

Mohamed,
What a shame...we can't even call you "unique" because you don't even have a brain worthy of that. All you can do is spread hatred and derogatory comments about people. At least Screech's plan to save his house was legal and didn't hurt anyone. What does religion have to do with that? Is that all you've got to pick on? It's people with thoughts like you that make this world a sad place. And... with a name like Mohamed I'd be careful what you say and to whom.

Poor Dustin. He made $5 million from all those years doing that stupid show (which obviously EVERYBODY watched since you all know who "Screech" is). Unfortunately as has happened with too many child actors, his father ripped him off for everything he made beyond that modest house he was able to buy. And when the guy had no other place to stay, Dustin let him come and live with him. The guy's a mensch! (Hear that you bigoted pieces of crap, Mohammed and Faheem?) Give him a break. And he was on a sitcom for many years that's STILL running in syndication. He may be a has-been, but he had more than "15 minutes of fame" as Andy Warhol phrased it originally. That phrase is more applicable to "American Idol" finalists and participants on "The Real World."
