It's flashback Friday!

Tiffani Thiessen stopped by The Meredith Vieira Show and got really candid about her time on Beverly Hills 90210 and Saved By the Bell.

When asked about her fellow Bayside High alums, she admitted that everyone is "still actually pretty close."

"It's been 25 years, I think. It's crazy. It's funny, I still talk to those guys a lot."

Thiessen also addressed how she dealt with going through puberty during the show's popularity, saying, "I think I really started noticing it when the show became popular and we started traveling and going to Europe and autograph signings and mall tours and things like that. It seemed like the girls were all there for Mark Paul [Gosselaar] and the boys were coming for me. It was very strange."

Vieira also asked the actress about her off-screen relationship with her former 90210 co-star, Brian Austin Green.

"We made it work. We are still very close and good friends," she explained.

Thiessen also admitted that it was incredibly awkward filming her first onscreen kiss for the show—which was with Luke Perry and not Green!

"That was probably the more awkward thing. Literally having your boyfriend on the show and then literally kissing another man, 'I get paid for this, honey. I don't know what to tell you.'"

She added that Perry gave her some helpful advice before the big smooch, to "drink really hot water before" the makeout scene.

Whatever you say, Dylan!
