Nicole Eggert reflcects on ''Baywatch'' -- The show was against everything the actress stood for morally

Her feature film Melissa is opening in the fall, but ex-Baywatch babe Nicole Eggert still has chilly memories of her former employer. ''I'm not an active feminist, but being on Baywatch was against everything I am morally,'' says Eggert, recalling her beach-series days as a never-ending fight to wear a jacket during winter shoots. Eggert is much prouder of her work in the upcoming drama. ''There's much more inside of me,'' she says, ''and I just want to be given a chance to show it.'' Playing a down-and-out dancer who's forced to strip in order to pay the bills certainly gives her a chance to reveal herself. Eggert will go topless, she says, ''for about five seconds.''
