But her signature performance came with the 1993 series Baywatch where she played the role of Caroline Holden. She gained immense popularity and stardom from the show. Then, in 1997, she was fired from the show after a series of misbehavior and her uncontrolled cocaine dependency.
After Baywatch, she appeared on a couple of projects, but she also enrolled in a rehabilitation center where she met Cerrito. In an interview, she talked about the intensity of their relationship, which made her fall in love and marries, "They say you shouldn't get into any relationship in the first year of sobriety — especially with someone in the program, but Paul and I fell in love immediately."
However, Bleeth was arrested in Michigan in 2001 after driving onto an interstate median strip. In her handbag, police discovered four syringes carrying a liquid form of cocaine and cocaine residues. And after getting a warrant to search her hotel room, they uncovered drug paraphernalia and cocaine.
Two months after the incident, she accepted a plea deal and pled guilty to driving while intoxicated and possessing less than 25 grams of cocaine, earning a sentence of two years probation and 100 hours of community service.
Subsequently, she also wrote a personal article in the April 2003 issue of Glamour Magazine, entitled 'Back from My Drugs Hell.' In the piece, she talked about the aid drugs were providing her and her upcoming life choices where she would live avoiding the drug completely.
In addition, Bleeth is an advocate of cancer awareness as she lost her mother to breast cancer.
As of now 2022, Bleeth and Cerrito are together without any children. She also appeared in the 2021 film Whack the Don as Lola and is set to appear in the movie Beautiful Evil as Baroness.
