Former Baywatch beauty Gena Lee Nolin had to call in the FBI after a mentally disturbed stalker sent her a knife in the post.

The leggy blonde has been plagued by a series of obsessive fans over her career, and frequently had to cope with "rude" letters and people who were "plain nuts".

She says, "It was intense. Crowds of guys would tug at your shirt, trying to rip it off. Usually if a guy spoke to me he was very respectful, but some of the fan-mail was really rude.

"I got letters from people in jail or people who were just plain nuts. One guy sent me a knife and said if he couldn't have me nobody could. Fortunately the FBI got on the case and nailed him."
