'Baywatch' Star Alexandra Paul -- German Fanatic is Threatening Me and My Husband


Germany's fascination with all things David Hasselhoff is blowing up in the face of another "Baywatch" star ... who just got a restraining order against a woman she says has been tailing her all over town.

Alexandra Paul, who played Stephanie Holden on "Baywatch", filed docs claiming Nicole Albrecht -- a German citizen -- is infatuated with her and the situation's been escalating for months ... including the following alleged incidents:

- Albrecht and her family show up uninvited to Paul's house and leave gifts and a note.

- Albrecht trailed Paul into a bathroom at her Pacific Palisades community pool ... and also appeared to chase Paul on foot during a hike.

- Albrecht waited for Paul in the parking garage of her gym and grabbed her ... until a manager at the gym intervened.

In the docs, AP goes all "Snatch" -- blaming "Zee Germans" for Albrecht's obsession, saying ... "This woman, Nicole, is from Germany and Baywatch is extremely popular there."

The court granted Alexandra a Temporary Restraining Order on Thursday which requires Albrecht to stay 25 feet away from AP and her husband.

A hearing is set for Sept. 12th to determine whether to extend the protection.

FUN FACT: Alexandra and her husband, Ian Murray, are both badass triathletes ... as in "Ironman" competitors.
