Lark Voorhies has come a long way from her days as Lisa Turtle on the hit NBC series, "Saved By The Bell." Voorhies, who played the glamorous fashionista, was part of the original case of the show when it premiered in 1998.

In a new interview with Yahoo!'s Michael Yo for his web series "The Yo Show," Lark Voorhies talked about her where career is now that she has moved on from Bayside High School.

But it was not her career that had people talking on Friday; it was her appearance.

Gone is the perfectly coiffed style-maven and in her place is an overly-made up shadow of the Lisa Turtle we all knew and loved.

"In terms of what some of the other Saved By The Bell cast has been up to, it could be much worse.I'm trying to figure out if there's a nice way to say "OH MY DEAR GOD WHAT HAPPENED TO LARK VOORHIES?!?!" wrote BuzzFeed's Whitney Jefferson.

"R.I.P. Lisa Turtle: Twitter reacts to Lark Voorhies' shocking new look," tweeted Complex Magazine.

"Im utterly appalled & horrified by the Lark Voorhies video. May the mental image soon leave my mind, replaced by old images of Lisa Turtle," tweeted sportscaster Bill Walton.

"Oh God Lisa Turtle What Are You Doing," tweeted Gawker.

So what is she up to these days?   

Lark Voorhies is looking to revamp her career with a new movie and a new series on VH1, reported The Christian Post on Friday. She told Michael Yo that she is "quite wonderful [and] very busy" working with her new company, Yo Soy Productions. She is currently working on a film called, "The Hope for Pandora's Box," which she wrote, directed, starred in and executive produced.

Entertainment Weekly reported the actress will appear on a new VH1 show about the celebrities of yesteryears called "Miss You Much," which is set to premiere in September.

When asked about a "Saved by the Bell" reunion, Voorhies responded: "We tend to circumvent and come back to this topic. So there may be some buzz. I really honestly believe that if it did happen, it wouldn't be a bad thing."

The 38-year-old actress is currently married to Andy Prince and has one child.  

Where are the other "Saved by the Bell" characters now?

Mark-Paul Gosselaar, or Zack Morris, currently stars on TNT's "Franklin & Bash" and has two children. The other studly star, Mario Lopez, otherwise known as A.C. Slater, is currently a host on "Extra!" and has a daughter with his fiancée Courtney Mazza.

Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, or Kelly Kapowski, joined "Beverly Hills, 90210" after "Saved By The Bell." She is now married to Brady Smith, is mother to a daughter and plays Elizabeth Burke on USA's "White Collar." Elizabeth Berkley, who played Thiessen's best friend on the show, Jessie Spano, gained fame with her 1995 "Showgirls." She is now married to Ralph Lauren's nephew, artist Greg Lauren, and has starred on "CSI: Miami."

Dustin Diamond, aka "Screech," was most famous for his 2006 sex tape, "Screeched - Saved By the Smell." In 2007 he joined VH1's "Celebrity Fit Club" and in 2009 he released a book, "Behind the Bell."
