It’s likely Melissa Joan Hart’s new memoir, “Melissa Explains It All,” will intrigue many fans of the former “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” — Hart’s best-known role on the series that ran from 1996-2003.
Long associated with a pretty squeaky-clean image, Hart reveals she lived a very wild lifestyle back in the 1990s. In the book, the actress fesses up to massive drug use, including taking ecstasy at a big Hugh Hefner Playboy mansion bash — and still remained high for a sexy Maxim cover shoot the next day.
“I experimented with weed, ecstasy, mushrooms and mescaline for about a year and a half,” Hart told Life & Style magazine. “I was kind of running with a bad crowd. I just didn’t enjoy taking drugs. I don’t like the loss of control.”
Hart, now 37, who earlier dated actor Jerry O’Connell and Backstreet Boy singer Nick Carter, has been married to Mark Wilkerson for 10 years. The couple are the parents of three sons.
