Baywatch's Yasmine Bleeth causes internet freak-out over this pic

For Cailyn Cox, writing isn't just a hobby, it's her life. Passionate about Hollywood, she makes it her mission to find the most entertaining celebrity gossip for SheKnows readers. And when she's not enthralled in the celeb world, she's ...

It's been 10 years since Yasmine Bleeth was seen in public, but why do we even care?

So, how is the news of her resurfacing on a beach years later now trending No. 1 on Facebook — is there nothing more interesting or important happening in the world?
