Melissa Joan Hart Explains It All: Cheating, Ecstasy Binges And More

For four years Melissa Joan Hart played Clarissa Darling on Clarissa Explains It All. Now, Hart is all grown up, and she’s explaining it all in her new memoir. Melissa Joan Hart reveals that there’s a lot to her other than her cookie cutter roles, and that includes cheating, same-sex hook ups, and ecstasy binges.

In her new memoir, Melissa Explains It All, Hart dishes on the gossip and lifestyle that she slipped into while on the brink of fame. From drug binged nights to steamy hook ups, the 37-year-old actress certainly explains it all.

To promote her book, Melissa spoke to Life & Style, and further spoke about the shocking details on her partying ways. Of her drug-fueled binges, Hart explained:

“I experimented with weed, Ecstasy, shrooms and mescaline for about a year and a half.”

So what does Melissa Joan Hart look like on drugs? Look no further than her 1999 Maxim photo shoot. Hart explained that it was during a crazy time, which involved the actress taking Ecstasy at the Playboy Mansion. Her dabbling with drugs lead into a steamy make out session with a girl, and then afterward she made her way to the Maxim photo shoot while high. She explained, “That was my third or fourth time on Ecstasy.”

Another shocking fact? Melissa Joan Hart was offered cocaine by Paris Hilton. Of course Hilton’s rep has denied these claims, but Hart insists that it happened, having said: “I was kind of running with a bad crowd. I just didn’t enjoy taking drugs. I don’t like the loss of control.”
