Rest in Peace, Dustin.

Sad to hear the news about Dustin on Monday . . . When he appeared in the #awesome80sprom years ago, I realized something I would have never known unless I had worked with him on this project . . .

He wasn’t Screech. He wasn’t that guy on Celebrity Fit Club (he confided in me that they paid him a lot of $ to be the raging a-hole he was on the show – and he regretted taking the $, but needed it). He wasn’t that guy who we all had seen throughout the years.

He was just a guy struggling to find his place to fit in. And he was game to try anything, which got him in trouble sometimes.
Rest in peace, Dustin. I hope you’re partying like it’s 1989 up there.
