Chris Paul & Andy Roddick Love Saved By The Bell’s Kelly Kapowski
Los Angeles Clippers star Chris Paul and former tennis pro Andy Roddick are battling over their love for Kelly Kapowski from “Saved By The Bell.” Sort of (photo at right).
It all started when Tiffani Thiessen, who played the iconic character, autographed a photo of herself from the 1990s series for Paul’s birthday last month, writing “”Happy birthday my dear.” The point guard took to Instagram on Tuesday to reveal his special present. “This is easily one of the best Bday gifts I’ve ever received in my 29yrs on this Earth!!! #KellyKapowski #My1stLove #WeWereTogether #SheJustDidntKnowIt #CuzImSavedByTheBell,” he captioned the snapshot.
After seeing the gift, Roddick then tweeted, “I literally am having issues containing my jealousy….. Back off CP!” The NBA player responded, “not a chance! haaaaaa.”
Is it possible that Paul and Roddick are the new Zack and Slater? Probably not, but it is pretty funny that two super successful athletes are fighting over an autograph, and not just any autograph, but one from their favorite fictional character on a kids TV show. OK, we admit Kelly Kapowski was definitely hot, and we totally see where they’re coming from. What do you think about Paul and Roddick clashing over Tiffani Thiessen?
