Blonde star Gena Lee Nolin found it a refreshing experience reuniting with her former co-stars for TV movie Baywatch REUNION: HAWAIIAN WEDDING - because everyone was sober.

Gena played lifeguard NEELY CAPSHAW in the long-running beach-side show for many years but witnessed many of her co-stars go through addiction problems while on the programme.

Happily she now says of the reunion show, "Well, you know, there'd been a lot of rehab.

"David Hasselhoff, YASMIN BLEETH and some others have gone through the therapy since we last got together. Nobody was on drugs or drinking this time so it was nice, everyone was really happy to be there. Let's face it, we all owe our careers to BAYWATCH."
