Who is Yasmine Bleeth?

Yasmine Bleeth was born on 14 June 1968, in New York City, USA, and is a retired actress, best known for her work in the long running series entitled “Baywatch”, in which she played the character Caroline Holden. She also played LeeAnn Demerest in the soap opera “One Life to Live”.

The Wealth of Yasmine Bleeth

How rich is Yasmine Bleeth? As of mid-2019, sources estimate a net worth that is over $2 million, earned through a successful career in acting. She also did modeling work, while acting in films as well as other television shows. As her current activities are unknown, her wealth may not increase very much now.

Early Life and Acting Beginnings

Yasmine is of Algerian, Russian, German and Jewish descent. Her mother, Carina was a model, while her father Philip was a business proprietor, but her family had a lot of connections in the entertainment industry, which would help her get a head start on her career. One of her first acting projects was a television commercial in 1969 for Johnson & Johnson’s No More Tears baby shampoo when she was just 10 months old.

At the age of six she made an appearance on “Candid Camera”, before appearing in an advertising campaign for Max Factor alongside model Cristina Ferrare. Her work there attracted the attention of fashion photographer Francesco Scavullo, who would help her gain modelling projects later on. In 1980, she had her first film role in “Hey Babe!”, in which she starred opposite Buddy Hackett. She continued doing commercial work, and then appeared in the daytime soap opera entitled “Ryan’s Hope” when she was 16 years old.

Rise to Fame

A few months after the cancellation of “Ryan’s Hope”, Bleeth’s mother was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer, and passed away within a year, which caused Yasmine to turn down acting offers for the next eight months, while grieving at home. Eventually she returned to acting, gaining one of her most notable roles in “One Life to Live”, a soap opera which ran on ABC, and was the first series to feature diverse characters with an emphasis on social issues. Her next project would be in the popular “Baywatch” in 1993, which follows Los Angeles County lifeguards who patrol the beaches in southern California, and her appearance in over 70 episodes of the show would gain her a significant amount of attention.

During her time in “Baywatch”, she was named as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in 1995 by “People” magazine. She was also named in the 100 Sexiest Women in the World by “FHM” from 1996 to 2001. Her fame on the show gained her numerous roles in both television and film, and she made guest appearances in other shows, while also continuing to work as a mode; she often did lingerie or swimwear modeling.

Final Acting Projects and Addiction

In 2000, Yasmine starred in the short-lived series entitled “Titans”, and then appeared as a crazed beauty queen in the television movie entitled “Crowned and Dangerous”, a role which she enjoyed a lot. Her last acting project would be the television movie entitled “Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding”. Throughout the latter part of her career, she struggled with cocaine addiction and voluntarily entered a rehabilitation clinic to overcome her dependence. However, it wasn’t enough, as she was later arrested in Romulus, Michigan with police finding injectable cocaine in her car, and more drug paraphernalia in her hotel room.

Through a plea bargain, she pleaded guilty to possessing less than 25 grams of cocaine, and driving while impaired. She was sentenced to two years probation and 100 hours of community service. The plea bargain she took stated that she would be clear of all felonies after fulfilling the terms of her probation, meaning that the incident wouldn’t appear as part of anyr criminal record. She returned to rehabilitation, and fulfilled her probation in 2004. The magazine “Glamour” wrote an article about her struggle with cocaine and subsequent recovery, in which she mentioned that consciously trying to stay away from drugs was now a part of her life.

Personal Life and Social Media

For her personal life, it is known that Bleeth met strip club owner Paul Cerrito in 2000 while at the rehabilitation clinic. She later commented on how she shouldn’t get into any relationship with someone in the program, especially during the first year of sobriety. Yet, the two fell in love and married in Santa Barbara in 2002. The couple now reside in Los Angeles, and also have a home in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Yasmine is known for doing charity work during her free time, and was a spokesperson for the Lee National Denim Day which raised funds for breast cancer research. She has also helped the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation through the “Wear Jeans to Work” campaign, and after participating in the TV show “Celebrity Jeopardy!”, donated her winnings to breast cancer research. She has also become a spokesperson for the national event Race for the Cure which was done in collaboration with the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and Ford.

One of the reasons why there is very limited information about her current endeavors is due to the lack of any strong online presence. She doesn’t have accounts on any of the major social media websites.

Quotes

#Quote
1My mother was Catholic, and my father's Jewish, so we always celebrated everything. To me, it was about the food and the celebration of it. [This year] I made Passover dinner on Friday night and Easter dinner on Sunday night. For Passover, I made matzo ball soup from scratch. And, well, I'm a bad, bad Jew, I made challah bread. I know you're not supposed to [since religious law prohibits eating leavened bread during the Passover holiday]. It's more the tradition for me than the religion. For Easter, I made ham--baked, with apricots.
2Every man who's ever fallen in love with me fell hard the minute I cooked a meal for him. It's the way to a man's heart.
3"It was almost like falling in love... It became my boyfriend, my best friend, my family." - on her cocaine addiction (Us Weekly, April 2003)
