Lark Voorhies, teen star of the hit 90’s show Saved By The Bell, is in the media this time attempting to squelch rumors that she suffers from bipolar disorder. The actress best known for her portrayal of Lisa Turtle is denying the accusation sparked by her mother’s recent interview with People magazine.
Voorhies’ mother, seeking to put the topic to rest told People yesterday, “There are things that have traumatized her” and “I care deeply about my daughter and I want her to resume her life.”
The admission would largely explain the strange behavior and off-putting interviews that have had the media guessing drugs were involved. In terms of life after SBTB stardom, Voorhies has been almost completely out of the limelight until a Yahoo! video of Voorhies went viral earlier this year which garnered media attention.
According to People, Voorhies would “stop mid-sentence and stare off, often mumbling to herself or to others who weren’t there.” Sadly, our beloved 90’s teen queen is now in the public eye in defense of her erratic behavior. Lark denies her mother’s allegations and relegates her vacant stares to being spiritually based.
“I have a strong spiritual sense,” the actress rebuked. “You caught me in moments of pray (sic).”
