Jessie and Slater together again!
Val Chmerkovskiy and Elizabeth Berkley might make the perfect pair on “Dancing with the Stars,” but long before Team Chmerkley, Elizabeth was one half of Team Splater on “Saved by the Bell.” A.C. Slater’s ballet twirls made Jessie Spano swoon, and the actor behind Bayside’s most elegant wrestler recently showed us he’s still got what it takes to sweep his longtime friend off her feet.
Elizabeth and Val visited Mario Lopez on the set of “Extra,” and it wasn’t long before the former “DWTS” finalist took hold of his ’90s TV girlfriend. ”Tango time with my girl @ElizBerkley on @ExtraTV! So proud of you…” he wrote, followed by the hashtag #WorkItMomma as an ode to Slater’s pet name for Jessie. Sounds as if Val can keep crushing on Kelly Kapowski all he wants, because Jessie’s already got quite the hunk in her corner!
All kidding aside, Berkley has both men backing her up, which can only help with her confidence in the competition. Lopez, who’s now a father of two, finished in second place on Season 3, so we know he’ll be cheering from the “DWTS” sidelines until her very last waltz!
Check out another pic from their meet-up, and see more of Team Splater on “SBTB,” weekday mornings on MTV2.
