At the peak of popularity, people also face downfalls, and so did Yasmine. The timeless beauty became highly dependent on drugs, including cocaine and alcohol. Therefore, she became tough to work with. She started doing drugs as a social thing and had no idea that her addiction would become extremely bad and eventually get out of her hands.
What Did The Director Of The Show Say About Her?
The director of the show, Douglas Schwartz, mentioned that Yasmine would arrive late to the set, and this would cause a delay to everybody’s work. At the same time, she was also going through difficult phases in her relationships, and this also added to the troubles the crew members had to face because of her.
What Did Yasmine Bleeth Do About Her Addiction?
Yasmine, in an interview, said that she did not want to get into drugs that bad and that there was a point in life when she would order cocaine at home, like Chinese food. After facing the consequences of drug abuse, she lost weight, often had a bloody nose, and would collapse on shoots.
To overcome this, she went to a rehab facility in Malibu, but they also could not help her much. Within the next two weeks, Yasmine was back to doing cocaine. But during the two weeks in rehab, she met Paul Cerrito, who owned a club in Michigan. They later got married, and Paul helped Yasmine with her addiction.
