Lisa from 'Saved By the Bell'

Bipolar Accusation


10/25/2012 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lark Voorhies
-- who played Lisa Turtle on "Saved By the Bell" back in the day -- says her mother's full of crap ... insisting she is NOT bipolar, despite her mother's claims.

Lark's mother recently told People her daughter had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder -- but this week in L.A., Lark told us she finds the report "comical."

But the video is really bizarre -- Lark can't seem to complete a thought, taking abnormally long pauses and speaking nonsensically ... saying things like, "Well you know, people want to express themselves and ... you know, they will do so at free random."

"The particular trade editorial [presumably People] and I are not in agreement, however. It’s so far left from what was actually atrast [???] or brought about."

Watch the video and see for yourself.

wow ew    

Whatever she's going through she doesn't seem eager to share. Wish the media would stop talking sh*t about her. She hasn't done anything wrong.

She might be a little out there, but she seems pretty nice.. Honestly it seemed like she had one of those buzzes where you can play it really cool, but not make a bit of sense when you talk.. Leave her alone, let her enjoy herself.

Kris Jenner and Kim K = money hungry plastic sellouts.    

seen her a few times in person, and she definitely acts weird at times.

Cray people never think they're cray!
It's ALWAYS someone else that's the problem for them.

She is just mad because Screech is not interested in her anymore!

Feel so bad for such a pretty little girl. She needs help. Even her escort seemed to know she is ill.

Honestly does it matter if she is or isn't? It looks like she might have had a glass of wine or few and was trying to hold it together for the cameras. Hey more props to her if she is bipolar & going out there if her mom outed her business. :P

Hey, that's still a doll face black chick who makes me horny. So get a bathing suit shot of her. Or leave her be.

In the People article, they said Lark thinks she talks to spirits and depends on them for answers. Maybe that explains the weird and awkward pauses between every sentence.

I couldn't get anything out of what she was saying. It was straight up jibberish. I wonder who the creepy guy next to her was. He seemed to be acting like he was cool with whatever she was saying, like nothing was wrong at all, till it got worse and worse. Then he started to look a little nervous.

I wonder if she is mind controlled and breaking her programming as they say. A lot of the cast of Saved by the Bell seemed to have serious problems as adults. I always thought that show was creepy. It was so blandly stylized that it made no real sense. It also had a mean undertone to it, like how the Screech character was the beloved outcast.

I don't know that you would call this bipolar. It is like she is inchoerent though. She doesn't seem drunk or wasted either. Maybe she is just on some other mind altering drug or is confused.

Sometimes that is how people speak with they have had a stroke or some other medical issue in the past, she sounds like she may had a stroke in the past, I know someone who had a stroke that speaks just like that with the pauses, and broken words, etc.

Lark here is clearly in no state to be talking to tmz but she seems like a sweet person. Hard to tell just from this if she's mentally ill or just drunk.
