How’s this for a blast from the past?

“Real Housewife,” talk show host and entrepreneur Bethenny Frankel just posted on Facebook a photo of herself with the cast of “Saved By The Bell.” No, she never appeared on the show (if she had, the Shmooze would be hunting for that episode right now), but instead worked behind the scenes as a production assistant in one of her first Los Angeles jobs.

“Can you tell what show I was a P.A. on back in the day?” wrote on Facebook.

This week she had Mario Lopez (SBTB’s Slater) on her talk show, and he claimed to have had a crush on her back in her P.A. days, cooing to the audience, “Bethenny was so sweet and so cool with everybody.”

No word yet from Screech (Dustin Diamond) yet, but the Shmooze admits that Frankel does look sort of cute in her early-’90s garb. Is it just us or have all those Skinnygirl cocktails made her a little too thin?
