Zoiks! What's Bethenny Frankel's Connection to 'Saved By the Bell'?

Hey, hey, hey... what is going on in here?

In this week's issue of Us Weekly, Bethenny Frankel divulges secrets from her past in the magazine's "25 Things You Didn't Know About Me" column. Of particular early 90s awesomeness? "I was a production assistant on the beach episodes of Saved by the Bell," B spills.

We knew that before she found fame in the concrete jungle, the Bethenny Ever After star also played chef and chauffeur for Paris and Nicky Hilton while living in California. But Zack Morris? Slater? Kelly Kapowski? It's all too good to be true.

And though she's basking in the spotlight now, Bethenny also reveals to the mag that life on the east coast wasn't always so star-studded. "Five years ago, I was broke. I had negative $50,000 in income on my 2007 taxes." TMI? Nah.

While the Benjamins are now flowing in thanks to her ever-expanding Skinnygirl empire, B tells the mag, "I love business more than money." Be that as it may, she's still clinging hard to her cash. "I very rarely pay retail. I'm a sample sale, online, bargain shopper," Mrs. Hoppy confides. "Having something from 'this season' is irrelevant to me." A T.G.I.Friday's, however, is satisfyingly worth the bucks. "I love chain restaurants with menus that contain things like potato skins," gushes the foodie.

More Bethenny revelations await in the new issue of Us Weekly.
