I hada hard time believing it, but apparantly it is true. the girl has turned into a pathetic drug addict. Just how in the hell do these people get this way? She is 36 years old and did how many anti-drug episodes on her stupid TV show? Amazing.
http://us.imdb.com/PeopleNews/#3 This says, in part:
The actress looks almost unrecognizable, with a bloated face and sunken eyes - all the result of her battle with the cocaine. Bleeth was once voted one of the 50 Most Beautiful People Ever Born by People Magazine, but now her looks have been destroyed by her drug hell.
I'd like to see the mug shots, just to verify this.

A few things to note here:
1) A mod should change the title to add an "e" to Ms. Bleeth's first name.

2) Don't assume somebody's a drug addict because of one article on the IMDb. They like to dramatize everything in their News section.
3) I saw one of the mugshots on TV. Indeed, she does look different but nowhere near as horrible as the IMDb would lead you to believe.
It's sad when a celebrity throws away whatever talent they have by spending their time abusing various substances; but on the other hand, for all I know there could be tremendous pressure and maybe some personal problems in her career and life that led her down this path.
I can only hope that this incident will turn her life around so she can get back onto the straight and narrow.

She is/was so hot. I always like her best from the mass of babes from Baywatch.
It's pretty sad if she is a crack addict. How do people go so wrong?

I'm partial to brunettes so Yasmine was my favorite Baywatch babe.
Crack? Quite surprising. Usually the drug of choice for Hollywood-types is cocaine, or even heroin. I'm sure no one forced her to do drugs. Like Chris Rock said, "drug dealers don't 'sell' drugs." She made her bed and now she has to sleep in it.

If this were reasonable, then what additional pressures and problems does a woman with three or four kids bringing home $300 or $400 a week have to have to turn into a crackhead?

How would I know? I don't know what pressures drug addicts who live on the streets had before they developed their habits, so how would I know what caused Ms. Bleeth to turn out this way?
Besides, your hypothetical mother with three kids doesn't have to worry about going out into public and being asked by several people to sign pieces of paper. Or take a photograph with them. Or maintain a constant public image of beauty. Or worry about photographers constantly tailing her or provoking her. Or wonder if her latest film will destroy her career.
I'm not saying that's what caused her to develop a drug habit, but it may be part of the problem.

Yea, all the "hypothetical mother" has to worry about is feeding and clothing her children. Making sure they get an education, and try and become respectable citizens. That's certainly nothing compared to being asked to sign paper and be photographed.

My wife kept telling me that she had a drug problem during her short stint on the Titans TV program.
She kept saying her nose had a somewhat swollen look to it which was not normal for her. She had either a bad nose job or was snorting chemicals.
I refused to believe it at the time, but boy was I wrong.
It's unfortunate that people follow the wrong path in life and destroy themselves this way.

I always thought there was something "off" with her eyes and nose, I figured she just wasn't aging well, but she's only 33.
She was a beautiful woman, but with her having the stigma of an addict, I don't believe I can ever look at her the same way.

Too much money, not enough direction.
When you are struggling, you don't have TIME nor MONEY to ruin your own life with drugs.
They are a great way to either get rid of your time and money, and to keep yourself down once you get there.
As I have heard a comedian on Bob & Tom say once -
"$400 a week drug problem?? If you can AFFORD $400 a week for drugs, you don't have a problem yet."
