“Saved by the Bell,” which also launched the careers of future stars Mario Lopez and Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, spun off two TV films, “Saved by the Bell: Hawaiian Style,” and “Saved by the Bell: Wedding in Las Vegas.” Elizabeth starred in both films.
After “Showgirls,” Elizabeth strived to earn her reputation as a serious actress and to distance herself from the shipwreck of the horrid movie. She appeared in “The First Wives Club” with Diane Keaton, Goldie Hawn, and Bette Midler.
Elizabeth earned a small role in the 2001 Woody Allen film “The Curse of the Jade Scorpion,” earning praise from the legendary filmmaker.
"I thought she could be funny, that she had the ability,” he said on the site www.jewishjournal.com. “This is a girl who's got a very sort of perky quality, and she's sexy and she's got a lot of energy, and if she's used correctly, she can be a very funny actress. All she needs is a couple of chances to show that."
More recently, Elizabeth appeared as a recurring character in “CSI: Miami,” playing the ex-wife of David Caruso's character.
In 2011 Elizabeth attained fame as a best-selling author, penning “Ask Elizabeth,” a self-help book written for girls and young women.
“When 'Saved by the Bell' went into syndication, a whole new generation of teen girls started to approach me for pictures and autographs,” Elizabeth said in a 2011 interview with www.radaronline.com. “My husband noticed a natural interaction and encouraged me to first srart with a column called 'Ask Elizabeth.' That led to the creation of the workshops, which led to the website and the book.”
