Yasmine Bleeth: My battle with drugs (or, how my nose almost fell off - WOD Alert!)

Yasmine Bleeth: My battle with drugs
Thursday January 23, 2003

FOR Baywatch beauty Yasmine Bleeth, getting high on drugs brought her so low, it nearly killed her.

Now she's poured out her heart and revealed for the first time her horrific battle with cocaine, her rocky fight to win back her life and the love that is helping her.

Two years ago, the actress' drug habit was so bad, she didn't sleep for days at a time. She looked like death and on Sept. 12, 2001, she nearly drove herself into an early grave after losing control of her car on a Michigan road and careening into a median while high.

She spent a night in jail and, after a plea bargain, was sentenced to two years' probation and 100 hours of community service.

"For three years, people had been telling me that drugs would kill me," says Yasmine, 34, who was in the car with boyfriend Paul Cerrito, whom she married last August. "And this was my proof."

Bleeth says cocaine crept into her world so slowly, so easily, she didn't realize it until she was hooked.

When her three-year contract with Baywatch ended in 1997, she moved from L.A. to San Francisco and started her gig on Nash Bridges, opposite Don Johnson. Her romance with actor Richard Grieco had all but died, and she started drowning her pain with drugs.

"I just wanted to feel good again," she confides. "And I knew an easy way to get that feeling."

At first Yasmine just snorted the stuff socially on weekends with people she knew. Three months later, she made her first call to a dealer.

"It was like ordering Chinese food," she says. "I made one phone call and they delivered it to my front door."

Suddenly, she was in love again - with the white powder. "It was all I could think about," she admits. "When I was high, I didn't think about my problems. I had no pain. I wouldn't sleep for two or three days, sometimes even four or five."

By the end of 1999, her ghastly appearance started scaring her friends and family.

"I'm a fleshy girl, very curvy and round, but I lost my softness," she says. "I looked like an alien. My eyes were bulging out of my face. I was 110 pounds and a size 0. I looked dead."

In fact, she was slowly killing herself.

"I had an infection that had completely eaten out the inside of my nose," she tells Glamour magazine. "Essentially, I had gangrene in my nose."

The doctor put her on antibiotics and told her that another couple of months with this infection and it could have gone to her brain and killed her.

"That scared me," says Yasmine. "Until I started doing drugs again six weeks later."

In no time, the devastating drug cycle began again. Remarkably, she managed to drag herself to the set of the series Titans. But she was in no shape to film. The show's producer, Aaron Spelling, gave her time off to go to rehab at Promises in Malibu, Calif.

"I did drugs right up until I entered the program," says Yasmine. "I even did drugs in the Town Car on the way there."

During her December 2000 treatment, she met someone who made her feel better than the powder: Michigan bar owner Paul Cerrito, 32. After rehab, Yasmine invited Paul to stay with her in L.A.

"I thought that if ever I could handle doing drugs casually, now would be the time," she says. "But once I started doing coke, I lost control, and it took over my life again."

Yasmine was high when she crashed her car in Michigan a year and a half ago and nearly died. But now she sees that crash as a godsend. "I felt like some force had saved our lives," she says.

She knew she desperately needed to quit drugs - and finally, she did. Then this past August, just less than a year after her car crash, she and Paul tied the knot in Santa Barbara and honeymooned in Hawaii.

Yasmine is clean now, but it hasn't been easy. Her husband's love helps her over the rough patches.

"The feeling I have when I'm with Paul is better than how I felt on cocaine," she says.

But she still has to take one day at a time.

"Consciously trying to stay off drugs is now part of my life, and it always will be," she says.

"I've proven to myself that I can't have both drugs and love. Every day, I have to make the choice again. So far, I choose love."

I may be out of "the scene" for a long time, but I find it difficult to believe that a girl who looks like that actually bought her own drugs.

Read carefully and notice the reversal
I started...I lost control...it took over my life...
Coke is an inanimate object with no inherent "power" or abilities. "It" didn't climb up her nose on its own.

Another of those fitting "images" for public consumption.
Yes, it's all about "image". Right, Dane?

BTW...this is another one of those "public confessions" so highly esteemed by reeducation advocates and suchlike. You should feel some remorse for not even realizing that you're playing right into the hands of those who value such things. Then again maybe you know exactly what you're doing.
Brainwashing, reeducation, coercive persuasion, thought reform, mind control...whatever, it's all pretty much the same. Somebody trying to condition people to think and act a certain way.
Cocaine is bad/evil and here is an example. This will happen to you if you use it.
You're a practitioner of those arts with articles like this one.
She lost control...she had emotional problems and tried to resolve them with drugs...she did it to herself and she couldn't hold her liquor (a euphemism in this instance) and barfed all over her shoes.
What happened to her doesn't happen to everyone.

What I love is that the husband was her boyfriend -- and was with her the night she drove her rental car off a Michigan road in a coke-induced frenzy. She met him in rehab. So romantic!

If she truly had her head on straight she'd be keeping to herself now.

What I love is that she had prior dealings with cocaine, or other drugs, as evidenced by her statement...
"I just wanted to feel good again," she confides. "And I knew an easy way to get that feeling."
If she hadn't done drugs of some kind before her breakup how would she know an easy way to get that feel good feeling?
This story is merely a hype piece and the suckerfish are going to fall for it hook, line and sinker!
Do you wear makeup and if so do you look different without it?

I think the drugs changed her and her near death experience made her take a second look at what she was doing. At least she's married now and after all this is the country of second chances. If any one deserves one more round in this life its Yasmine Bleeth. Anyway, I think looks are overrated and for a man there's a lot more to a woman than how she does her face and if she's more obssessed about looks than a guy, she's not someone a man would want to go out with. The most beautiful women in the world shine from the inside and that's where a compliment to their beauty is truly sincere.

Why is this a WoD alert?

This is about an idiot that messed with drugs and got addicted. Oh, yeah, that can't happen since drugs are illegal and there is strict federal/state/county/municipal/school crossing guard zero-tolerance enforcement.

Maybe she should sue the government for not preventing her from using coke? Surely they sould have been more intrusive, watched her more carefully, monitored her finances, surveilled her acquaintences, and intervened before she got messed up.

What's that you say? It's not the government's role to baby sit citizens? Oh.....

It is not government's role to babysit responsible adult citizens. But irresponsible, self-indulgent, scofflaw, destructive children in adult bodies are another story. The government's job is to throw them into the hoosgow for "Timeout" so they don't steal from the rest of us.

Anyone who abuses drugs, alcohol, etc, and then steals should be prosecuted for stealing, just as should happen to thieves who steal without abusing drugs.

But should she go to jail for drinking her liver into rot, snorting coke until her nose rots off, or gambling herself into debt until the Mob takes it out on her thumbs and knees? No. Part of personal freedom is taking responsibility for one's actions.

I suspect you'd feel more comfortable in a Taliban-esque society where the whims of religious leaders compel those under that regime into strict 'moral' compliance with brutality as a consequence for not conforming.

Of course, you do know that you are to rational thought what Hillary is to morality, honesty, and decency?

I get your point about her choosing to use the substance. You are right, she made a choice.

I disagree with your assessment of coke as having no "inherent power or abilities". Cocaine Hydrochloride is an extremely powerful substance, and this story of Yasmeen's enslavement to it is just one of many.

Cocaine, the "thing" IS dangerous and DOES have inherent pharmacological power. The choice to be made about it is STAY AWAY FROM IT.

Wrong, beagle brain. Anyone who uses these substances places others at unacceptable risk of harm. Addictive, psychoactive substances have that quality. The idiots who indulge are also prone to denial, believing--falsely--that their brain-dead habits harm no one--including themselves. Waiting until the jackasses do cause harm merely guarantees that most will get away with never paying for their foolishness. The rest of us just fork over our money in the form of taxes and increased insurance premiums to pay for their "freedom." That is socialism, pure and simple.

The only way to resolve this is the good old capitalist way: by requiring insurance so the risk can be pooled and hedged against before the idiots destroy others and their property. Insurance should be comprehensive, covering everything from lost worker productivity, to funding turnstile rehab centers, to replacing the property of others stolen or destroyed, to paying for lives taken (which can never be truly compensated for).

If you want to blow dope or use cocaine recreationally, you should be required to buy and maintain druggie insurance. If you can't afford the insurance and you indulge, you should go to jail--hard and long. If an insurer cannot be found who is willing to insure the risk, then that drug should be outlawed totally. After all, if a private insurer is unwilling to fund a risk, the risk by defintion is too costly for society to bear.

So there's the deal, all you pro-dope closet socialists. Put your insurance money where you bong is.

I predict there will be no takers. Instead there will be misdirection as the pro-dopers do everything but admit dopers ought to be personally responsible for the consequences of their foolish indulgence. They want the freedom to indulge while requiring the taxpayer to pay for the consequences.

Does that include the very potent and dangerous drug ethanol, which can kill a first time user?

I knew there would be misdirection.

Of course it should. Will it? Unlikely. The external costs of alcohol use have become so heavily socialized in this country that the taxpayer is forever doomed to pay these costs.

What I find laughable is that you pro-druggie closet socialists don't realize how the butt crack of your illogic shows so obviously when you knee-jerk your way to the "alcohol is legal" misdirection argument. What you are REALLY arguing is that the costs of ALL drug abuse should be socialized.

I remember her on Nash Bridges and she always looked haggard. That she would have been in her late 20s then is amazing--I figured 40ish. Sad what addiction can do.

I hope she is done with it...but it takes more than a loving husband, it takes a loving Savior to conquer such things.

Christian FReepers should pray for Yasmine.

I saved you for last.
I disagree with your assessment of coke as having no "inherent power or abilities". Cocaine Hydrochloride is an extremely powerful substance, and this story of Yasmeen's enslavement to it is just one of many.
Insane! So what if it is an extremely powerful substance? Dynamite is an extremely powerful substance too, but it wont do a damned thing by itself unless it isn't stored properly and "it" can't enslave anybody either.
And as far as enslavement, enslavement requires cognition, which cocaine doesn't have. YB indentured herself in her desire to "feel good", by whatever means, if there is any form of enslavement going on. The cocaine didn't have a thing to do with it. Again, no cognition exists in cocaine!
Cocaine, the "thing" IS dangerous and DOES have inherent pharmacological power.
Cocaine has pharmacological efficacy (the power to produce an effect), not power in the manner in which you're implying.
Besides, how can a "thing" be dangerous in and of itself? A number of "things" can be considered dangerous (even five gallon bucket to a toddler if it's partially filled with water). By your thinking a car, the "thing" IS dangerous. Some outside action is usually required before the "thing" actually becomes harmful or deadly.
The choice to be made about it is STAY AWAY FROM IT.
You can recommend that "choice", but it isn't reality. Folks have been saying "stay away from it" for years and it isn't working is it?

You're just a little too liberal (modern day usage) in your thinking for me.

Believe it or not, I find this to be sensible.

This seems to be to be similar in concept to state governments mandating a minimum level of liability insurance for motor vehicles. The government makes as a requirement for obtaining a license to drive on public roads a policy to cover a minimum level of fiduciary coverage for accidents that may happen.

I predict there will be no takers. Instead there will be misdirection as the pro-dopers do everything but admit dopers ought to be personally responsible for the consequences of their foolish indulgence. They want the freedom to indulge while requiring the taxpayer to pay for the consequences.

Sorry to disappoint you. I strongly believe that with the freedom to do these things comes the resonsibility in part to not pass a financial burden on to the taxpayer, or any private citizen.

You know what coca-cola really means?

It's hyphenated for a reason. It originally contained TWO active ingredients. coca and cola. Now it is only cola. So what is coca? It's what the locals called the plant that they extract cocaine from. That's why coke is called coke. It used to have coke(cocaine) in it.
