Yasmine Bleeth, 33, was formally charged November 16, 2001 with cocaine possession and possession of syringes along with her boyfriend Paul, following a one-car accident in which she swerved onto a highway median to avoid, I'm assuming, an air pocket that jumped out of nowhere. Yasmine had just recently left drug rehab where it so happened she also met met Paul. Romantic, huh? And here you thought gorgeous Hollywood Sex Symbols were just snobs who dated rich rock stars or something!

 

The former Baywatch Babe pleaded not guilty to the drug charges and was freed on a $10,000 personal bond, meaning she didn't have to post any actual cash - they let her go on her personal word she'd show up in court (like that'd happen to one of us commoners? Ha ha ha ha! )

The interesting public reaction to this story was not about how sad it was that yet another young talent was messing up their privileged life by descending into a life of drug use and Ne'er Do Wells, but a reaction of HOLY HASSELHOFF...look how shitty she really looks! I say it and say it and say it - Underneath all the hairstyling, extensions, highlights, coloring, ice blue contact lenses, false eyelashes, air brushing, silicone, make-up, experts, specialists consultants, personal trainers, engineered custom clothes and lighting, they're just as screwed up, emotionally crippled and stupid as anyone else can be out here in the Real World. In fact isn't that most of the fun? Finding out the Hollywood Package is so vastly different from who's really in there after all. ..........................................................................................back
