Yasmine Bleeth – Childhood, Family and All You Need To Know

The former actress and model Yasmine Bleeth did not only flourish during the 1990s, but she also enjoyed one of the most prolific careers you can find in the showbiz industry. A most eloquent example of an infant prodigy, her first acting role came when she was only 10 months old – yes, 10 months. At only six years of age, she was able to put up such a performance in a commercial that caught the attention of the fashion photographer Francesco Scavullo who subsequently sampled her in his book, Scavullo Women.

Then, over the years, her acting credit has cut across film, TV, video games, theater, and music videos. How many professionals can boast this much? With such an impressive background, therefore, you certainly want to know more about the actress-model. So, read on to get all you need to know about her.

Yasmine Bleeth’s Family Background and Childhood

She was born as Yasmine Amanda Bleeth on June 14, 1968, in New York City. Her mother Carina Bleeth was a model while her father was an entrepreneur. She has a Russian, German, and Jewish ancestral background from her father’s side and Algerian roots from her mother’s side.

For her education, Yasmine Bleeth attended the United Nations International School in New York. As already hinted, Yasmine’s first acting role was in ‘No More Tears’, a baby shampoo TV commercial for the multinational pharmaceutical and consumer goods manufacturer, Johnson and Johnson. That was in 1969 when Yasmine was only 10 months old. She went on to appear in several other commercials while still a baby. When she was six years of age, she appeared on the hidden camera reality TV series Candid Camera. That same year, she also appeared in a commercial for the cosmetics line Max Factor, alongside the then-famous fashion model and actress Cristina Ferrare. It was in that project that her performance caught the attention of Francesco Scavullo as earlier mentioned.

Yasmine’s first film role was in the 1980 film Hey Babe! where she was cast opposite the now-late veteran comedian and actor Buddy Hackett. She was 12 years old then. Four years later, she began to appear on the ABC soap opera, Ryan’s Hope.

In 1989, Yasmine Bleeth lost her mother to inflammatory breast cancer. In order to mourn her mother’s passing, Yasmine took an eight-month-long break from acting. Later on, her father got married to another woman whose name we cannot ascertain just yet. However, Yasmine has two half-brothers named Tristan (born in 1986) and Miles (born in 1988) from her father’s second marriage.

Yasmine is married to Paul Cerrito, a strip club owner. Their wedding held in Santa Barbara California on August 25, 2002. However, they do not have any kids that we know about.

Her professional career is generally seen to have begun in 1983 with her role as ‘Theresa O’Brian’ in Hey Babes!. Since then, she has been part of many other projects.

Yasmine is probably best known for portraying the character of ‘Caroline Holden’ in the TV movie Baywatch and its spin-offs, making 75 appearances in the project between 1993 and 2003. She is also noted for acting as ‘LeeAnn Demerest Buchanan’ in the ABC soap opera, One Life To Live between 1991 and 1993.

Yasmine Bleeth Has Struggled With Cocaine Addiction

Her addiction to cocaine became so serious that she voluntarily submitted herself for rehabilitation at Promises Rehabilitation Clinic in Malibu California. However, there are indications that she did not follow the laid-down instructions given to her by her counselors at the clinic. So, in spite of the time she spent at the clinic in the year 2000, she was arrested for DUI on September 12, 2001, after her car swerved off the highway and wound up in a median. Following the arrest, the police found cocaine both in her car and hotel room.

Her Husband Also Struggled With Cocaine Addiction

Yasmine Bleeth’s husband Paul Cerrito also had cocaine issues. Indeed, it was at Promise Rehabilitation Clinic, Malibu that the couple met each other for the first time while undergoing the rehabilitation program. Then, in spite of the fact that those undergoing the program were not allowed to go into a relationship, the couple still went ahead to fall in love with each other and continued their relationship. It is obvious that this disobedience was responsible for Yasmine’s continued drug dependence thereafter because, when she was arrested for DUI, she had been driving in the car with Paul.
