Nicole Eggert opens up about getting breast implants at 18 while starring on Baywatch: ‘I look at all these younger girls doing it and think, ‘God, leave your bodies alone!’

Nicole Eggert opens up about her regrets about getting breast implants when she was just 18 during the first season of Baywatch.

The 52-year-old actress has been acting since she was 8, starring as Jamie Powell in Charles in Charge and Who’s the Boss before playing Summer Quinn on Baywatch.

When she realized she had to be in a one-piece swimsuit all day, which she said was ‘not flattering’, she decided to get breast implants during a filming break.

She realized on the first day of filming in 1992: ‘Oh my God, we’re going to be in a bathing suit all day every day?’

The actress admitted that she believed she was auditioning for a spin-off TV series about kids in a Malibu high school.

‘All the girls worked out and were super petite and fit and I was like “Oops.” And the one-piece bathing suits were not flattering. I didn’t want to wear it at all,” she said.

‘It just wasn’t what I signed up for. It was a totally different show and ballgame and not where I wanted to be,’ she said, eventually leaving Baywatch after two seasons.

While she grew up on the beaches in Southern California where they filmed, and was one of the strongest swimmers in the cast, she still felt insecure about her body, adding that it led to her having breast implant surgery .

‘Of course I regret it now. I look at all these younger girls doing it and think, “God, leave your bodies alone!”‘ Eggert said.

Although she admitted, “But when you have to put on that one-piece and it’s like you’re so flat it’s like puckering – you’ve got puckers across the front… you’re like, ‘What is that?’ Nothing you can do. You can’t stuff it with anything. You can’t do anything.’

“It was a stupid 18-year-old decision,” Eggert added, and while she would undergo several breast augmentation surgeries afterward, she appeared on E!’s Botched in 2015 to have her breasts reduced.

In 2016, original Baywatch producers Michael Berk and Douglas Schwartz claimed that Eggert felt “competitive” with star Pamela Anderson.

They also claimed that she ‘called in sick’ for a few days after a holiday weekend and came back with a boob job, but Eggert disputes this.

‘Those guys – they really like to make things up. It was on show stoppage, and they knew (about the operation),’ Eggert said.

‘That was the image she wanted to portray, so it worked for her. And I always just feel like whatever you feel comfortable with, whatever makes you feel good, do it. And for her, that meant wearing a lot of makeup. To me it was like, makeup at the beach? “Oh, that’s disgusting, ‘You know what I mean?’ Eggert said.
