“Saved by the Bell” Star Has Bipolar Disorder

Post By RelatedRelated Post

Remember Lark Voorhies?  If you don’t, you should know that she was the one black girl on the old school show, “Saved by the Bell.”  She appears to have had a tough life up until this point, and some wondered what happened to her after seeing images that were a far cry from the beauty queen that we once knew.

Voorhies has been having a tough time of it since the show came to an end.  While she hasn’t been all that forthcoming about her personal life, she has admitted that she has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.  We don’t know if anything she’s done played a role in the creation of her psychiatric problems or if it’s all innate.  Regardless, it appears that she is going to need some help.  We certainly wish her the best.

“It’s frustrating… They can’t explain it… I care deeply about my daughter and I want her to resume her life.”

The actress, who has been struggling with the erratic behavior for years, was recently prescribed medication to help deal with the mental illness, but Tricia insists the condition was brought on by a series of undisclosed events, which left the actress traumatized.

She refuses to divulge further details, saying, “I don’t want to go there,” but Tricia adds her daughter was devastated when her career stalled after the show’s final episode in 1993 and her marriage to husband Miguel Coleman fell apart in 2001.

However, she does have hope Lark will pull through: “She’s trying so hard. She says she’s delayed, but she’s going to get there.”

Depression is a serious disease which is often pushed under the rug. If left untreated, depression can alter your way of life.

We hope Lark gets through this.

  1. I'm sure being raised as a Jehovah's Witness didn't help her!!


    • 🙁

  3. I wish her the best..

  4. OMG I had such a crush on Lark Voorheis. She played the part of Wendy Reardon in the sequel ''Days of our lives''. I wish her all the very best.

  5. It's unfortunate. Another story about a young life in Hollywood unraveling after the fame is gone. Let's pray and wish her the best.

  6. I don't understand what being a Jehovah's Witness has to do with this. I know a whole lot of crazy assed pentecostals, baptists, methodists, catholics, apostolics, etc.

    • Crazy is crazy. Why does religion come into play?

    • Thank you Trina.

  7. I've been active in my church for over 45 years. Trust me, I'm dealing with women who are quad-polar! When I approach them I ask certain questions to determine which direction they're traveling in at that moment. Some people's condition is so extreme they are clinical and need medication to stay on a somewhat even keel. Others refuse to believe there's anything wrong; in the hood we just say,"They're acting funny or they're sometimy". This and other conditions are increasing in frequency and extremes. Finally, this is an equal opportunity condition. And Jesus will not swoop down and remove all your problems. Medication and Jesus, however, does wonders!

    • Sad story. And it's also sad what she has done to her face. I guess that was her way of dealing with things. Hope things get better for her.

    • I don't think she "did" anything to her face. From what I understand she has Lupus.

    • Oh ok

    • Amen sis!

    • I'm going to borrow your term 'quad-polar',AnnMarie. And may you continue to be blessed in your work with those struggling.

    • Jesus. Another form of mental illness.

  8. I hope L. Voorhies gets the help she needs. WE all need help sometimes along with praying or prays. Sad, a lot of child stars end up down & out– especially when hollywood stops calling them. Just goes to show you, you need to have other things/skills no matter what field of work you are in or level you are on in said field. JC.

  9. I cannot see the picture because Boyce has his ad covering Lark's picture. PATHETIC.

  10. I hate that for Lark. Depression & bi-polar disorder are real & require medication management & cognitive behavioral therapy rather your an 80's sitcom star or a degrees professional. Life can be difficult & we gotta pray & lift up those that struggle with maintaining mental health regardless to their religious beliefs or up bringing.

  11. I pray that the sister will improve!

  12. Very rapidly this site will be famous among all blogging visitors, due to it’s good posts

  13. I always was concerned in this topic and stock still am, thanks for putting up.
