Yasmine Bleeth picture

Yasmine Amanda Bleeth (born June 14, 1968 in New York City) is an American TV and film actress. Yasmine, which is pronounced yes-MEEN, is the Persian version of Jasmine, the name of a flower. Her nickname is Yaz or Yazmania.

 

Bleeth is most famous for her role as Caroline Holden on the worldwide-syndicated TV series Baywatch, where she played an always red-swimsuit-clad lifeguard on the Los Angeles County beaches, along with David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson, and Alexandra Paul.

 

****

 

Biography

 

Family

Bleeth's American father, Philip, is Jewish of Russian and German ancestry, while her mother, Carina, was a Pied-noir [1].

 

Her mother was an unsuccessful fashion model, while her father was a successful photographer. They both ran a business that rented vans to fashion photographers for on-location shoots. Her father became Yasmine's business manager [2].

 

Bleeth's parents separated, and she was raised by her mother. Her parents divorced when she was 18 years old, and her father remarried. He then fathered two sons, Tristan Bleeth (born in 1986) and Miles Bleeth (born in 1988).

 

 

Childhood

Bleeth's earliest known acting role was in a Johnson & Johnson's No More Tears baby shampoo television commercial at age ten months at the end of 1968 or the beginning of 1969. She once said: "I did my first commercial when I was 10 months old, and I've been in the business ever since." [3]

 

At age six, she appeared in a Max Factor cosmetic campaign, along with the model, Cristina Ferrare. Her work in this campaign caught the eye of fashion photographer, Francesco Scavullo, who subsequently included her and her mother, Carina, in his book entitled Scavullo's Women. [4]

 

Total Film magazine, issue number 21, dated (October 1998), contains a two-page interview with Bleeth. In the article she said, "When I was a girl I used to have to force boys to kiss me. My toughest friend had to hold them down."

 

Bleeth attended the United Nations International School in Manhattan, New York, and she received a bilingual (French-English) education [5]. Although she was very popular with boys, girls frequently beat her up. At one time when she was 14 years old, she had to be away from school for a few months for her acting career. When she returned to school, she was devastated to learn that the students had been gossiping about her, and how they suggested that she was pregnant, and that was why she was away from school for so long.

 

 

On-screen beginnings

Bleeth starred in her first movie at the age of 12. She was cast opposite Buddy Hackett in the feature film Hey Babe! in 1980. The movie was also known as Babe! and Rise and Shine.

 

When Bleeth graduated from high school, she had already been working on the soap opera Ryan's Hope since the age of 16. She won the role of Ryan Fenelli on the ABC soap opera. In 1991, staying in the ABC family, she created the role as Lee Anne Demerest on the highly acclaimed soap opera One Life To Live.

 

 

Mother's death

At the age of 20, Bleeth lost her mother, Carina, who suffered from inflammatory breast cancer, the deadliest type of breast cancer. According to Bleeth, her mother had always been very healthy and conscientious about not smoking or drinking, and eating right and exercising, etc. Carina even traveled up the Amazon River all by herself, spending nights under the stars. [6].

 

Bleeth said that she never accepted the fact that her mother was dying until Carina took her very last breath. Just two months after Carina's 47th birthday, her fight with cancer was over [7].

 

After Carina died, Bleeth sank into depression, and she turned down offers for acting or modeling work for about eight months.

 

 

Fiancée

After she met Ricky Paull Goldin, a soap actor who helped her with her depression, and she decided to work on another soap opera, One Life to Live. The two lived in Manhattan, but after she was cast for Baywatch, she moved to Los Angeles. The couple were planning to get married, but shortly after the wedding invitations were made out, the marriage was called off.

 

 

Breast cancer advocate

She was the 1998 spokesperson for the Lee National Denim Day fundraising campaign, which raises millions of dollars for breast cancer research and education. Her primary message to women was to pay attention to their bodies; Her mother was initially misdiagnosed by a doctor who thought that she was going through early menopause.

 

Bleeth donated the proceeds of her $10,000 win on Celebrity Jeopardy to breast cancer research. She hoped to use her celebrity status to expand breast cancer awareness - particularly to young women who might overlook what an older woman would not ignore [8].

 

Bleeth has been a spokesperson for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation who, along with corporate sponsor Ford, put together the nationally run Race for the Cure.

 

 

Drug addiction and arrest

In December 2000, Bleeth voluntarily entered the Malibu-based Promises rehabilitation clinic to overcome a cocaine addiction.

 

On September 12, 2001, Bleeth was arrested in Michigan after her car pulled off the highway and wound up on a median. The car accident occurred on Interstate 94 near Detroit as she and her future husband, Paul Cerrito, were heading to Detroit Metropolitan Airport [9].

 

Police found four syringes with an injectible form of cocaine in them and a small plastic bag with cocaine residue on it. The next day police conducted a search of her hotel room, and they found more cocaine and drug paraphernalia. In November 2001, through a plea bargain, Bleeth pleaded guilty to possessing less than 25 grams of cocaine and to driving while impaired. She was sentenced in January 2002 to two years of probation and 100 hours of community service.[10]

 

Bleeth's lawyer, Jerry Sabbota, stated that the actress was satisfied with the plea bargain, noting that her record will be cleared of any felonies after she fulfills the terms of her probation. "When all is said and done she'll have a traffic ticket on her record. She wasn't treated any better than anyone else, and she wasn't treated any worse," Sabbota said. Bleeth completely fulfilled the terms of her probation as of January 2004, and her record was cleared as previously determined by the plea bargain.

 

 

Rehabilitation

Attorney Sabbota stated that Bleeth underwent psychotherapy from the founder of the Malibu-based Promises rehabilitation facility, where she and stars such as Ben Affleck, Charlie Sheen, Paula Poundstone and Tim Allen have all sought treatment.

 

In an issue of Glamour from April 2003, Bleeth wrote a three page article entitled "Back From my Drugs Hell" about her rocky path to recovery, her drug addiction, and her struggle to remain sober. She wrote that she had a cocaine habit that was so severe that she collapsed at a photo shoot for Glamour magazine, and she went without sleep for five days at a time. She wrote that "consciously trying to stay off drugs is now part of my life and always will be." [11]

 

Commenting on her cocaine addiction, Bleeth said, "It was almost like falling in love... It became my boyfriend, my best friend, my family." [12]

 

 

Marriage

Bleeth married former bar owner Paul Cerrito, on August 25, 2002. They met each other at the Promises clinic. They married in Santa Barbara, California and now live in Los Angeles, California.

 

In the (April 2003) edition of Glamour, Bleeth stated, "They say you shouldn't get into any relationship in the first year of sobriety — especially with someone in the program, but Paul and I fell in love immediately."

TV Roles

Due to her role as Caroline Holden on Baywatch, Yasmine was offered many more roles, and it gave her the opportunity to work in films. She continued to work as a model, frequently appearing in swimwear or lingerie, but she refused to ever pose nude even though she had many offers.

 

Yasmine turned down roles in Aaron Spelling's Beverly Hills, 90210 (1990) and Pacific Palisades (1997) but accepted the starring role in the short-lived series Titans (2000)[13]. Aaron Spelling was so eager to cast Yasmine in the role of vixen on Titans that his company convinced CBS to grant her an early release from her Nash Bridges contract.

 

 

Video game

Yasmine was asked by a fan: "How did it feel to be in the video game Maximum Surge?"

 

Yasmine responded: "Maximum Surge was a completely new experience for me. It was great to get tough and gritty. The whole concept of CD-ROM is still mind-blowing to me." [14]

 

 

Trivia

Bleeth was one of the top 45 poker players when she joined the competition at The United States Poker Championship in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

She was one of People magazine's 50 Most Beautiful People in 1995. She was also one of FHM's 100 Sexiest Women in the World every year from 1996 - 2001, and FHM's U.S. 100 Sexiest Women every year from 2000 - 2003.

On the sitcom Friends, Chandler Bing and Joey Tribbiani purchase a chick and a duck, and Chandler names the chick "Yasmine", presumably after Yasmine Bleeth, when she appeared on Baywatch, a television program Chandler and Joey frequently watched. (See "The Chick and The Duck".) Also, Chandler admitted to being in love with Bleeth in many an episode. He also has a human sized cardboard display of her, which Rachel and Monica use to trick Ross into thinking that they are watching him perform some of his tricks in his apartment.

Interestingly, Bleeth once dated Matthew Perry, who played Chandler Bing in the sitcom.

Bleeth was asked by a fan: "On Friends, what do you think of Joey and Chandler's obsession with Baywatch? Chandler even put you on his "five celebrities I can sleep with and my mate can't get mad" list. Is this weird for you, or are you flattered?" Yasmine responded: "I'm flattered — and it sure doesn't hurt our show, either." [15]

Bleeth was asked by a fan: "Why have you turned down repeated offers to pose for Playboy?" Yasmine responded: "I'm not interested in Playboy. I'm a fashion maven, and I love people to see me with my clothes on." [16]

Her given name Yasmine is Persian for a fragrant flower. Bleeth is Yiddish in origin, and was once spelled as blut, which is German for blood.

Bleeth appeared on Candid Camera in 1974 at the age of 6 from her Kindergarten class in school.
