Where Are They Now: Yasmine stayed busy after Baywatch but never quite got to that level of popularity again.

In an issue of Glamour from April 2003, she wrote a three page article entitled "Back From my Drugs Hell" about her rocky path to recovery, her drug addiction, and her struggle to remain sober.

She wrote that she had a cocaine habit that was so severe that she collapsed at a photo shoot for Glamour magazine, and she went without sleep for five days at a time. She wrote that "consciously trying to stay off drugs is now part of my life and always will be."

Yasmin has been a spokesperson for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

After getting married she moved to Birmingham, Michigan and took some time off. She is set to make a comeback in the film, 'The Last Guy on Earth' which is currently in production.
