After exiting the store, she reportedly made a phone call and then walked to the Original Famer's Market with her said friend to buy iced coffee. The well-known New York native and the friend reportedly conversed for an hour before she made her way to her vehicle.

Although others say Bleeth has aged gracefully, some have noted how she gained weight over the years and discussed her transformation online. In February 2012, one social media user tweeted, "Pretty sure I just saw Yasmine Bleeth on a show on USA. She got fat. Not too fat though."

Several years later, another Twitter user mentioned Bleeth's changed appearance alongside a side-by-side photo of her in the late stage of her life and her early years as a young Hollywood star.

"What happened to Yasmine Bleeth," the individual asked on the platform. Another online user posed the same question in June 2023, writing, "Whatever happened to Yasmine Bleeth?"

Bleeth Starred in 'Baywatch' & Has Been Married for 21 Years

Bleeth, now 55 years old, is best known for portraying the role of lifeguard Caroline Holden in the beloved action fiction series, "Baywatch," which aired for 11 seasons from 1989 until 2001.

However, the former model starred in the show from 1993 to 1997, appearing in over 70 episodes while wearing her iconic red bathing suit. She co-starred with Pamela Anderson, David Hasselhoff, and Nicole Eggert.

In October 2013, the cast reunited in honor of the classic show's 25th anniversary on "Entertainment Tonight" and dished on some behind-the-scenes secrets, revealing they had a weight-loss clause in their contracts and that if they gained or lost weight, then they would be in "trouble."

Eggert, who starred as Summer Quinn from 1992 to 1994, further explained, "[There] was a five pound fluctuation you couldn't go up or down." Three years after leaving the show in 2000, Bleeth went to rehab in Malibu called Promises for her cocaine addiction — where she met her current husband.

Another consecutive year later, in August 2002, Bleeth walked down the aisle with club owner Paul Cerrito, whom she crossed paths with at the celebrity rehab clinic. Their nuptials were held at the Barca Resort in Santa Barbara, and fifty guests were in attendance. The couple has been married for 21 years since.

She stepped away from Hollywood in 2003, and before her most recent appearance, the actress was last seen in 2020, when eyewitnesses reportedly spotted her walking her dog in Southern California.
