Melissa Joan Hart Reveals All in Scandalous Memoir

It was hard to escape the 90s without remembering Melissa Joan Hart. Her roles in Clarissa Explains it All and Sabrina The Teenage Witch cemented her position as a classic 90s teen star. The actress moved on to star in movies and other television shows.

Her newest venture is the release of a book that details her history with drug experimentation, relationships and opinions on other Hollywood stars. She lets all the details loose, using names and, in some cases, explicit details.

Melissa Joan Hart and Drug Use History

To the public eye, Hart has played the celebrity role pretty low-key. Not many would guess that the star had a rough phase characterized by drugs and alcohol use. Well, now we know the truth from the star herself.

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

She recalls posing for photo shoots while still high, among other detailed stories. The book is sure to paint a picture of life as a celebrity who is struggling with drug use.

Hart explains that she never became addicted to the various drugs she tried. Instead, she says she was involved with a bad crowd for a while.

“I just didn’t enjoy taking drugs. I don’t like the loss of control.”

It appears that Hart found a way to work through her drug use issues. We’re not sure how she found help or what caused her to change her ways, but we’re sure Hart reveals those details in her book.

    Is that why she disappeared for a few years? She was huge in the 90s on all of those shows and then she was just gone and I think now she is in a TV show with one of the Lawrence brothers (another 90s TV icon).

    It is not surprising that such things happened because it seems that happens in most teenage actors lifes. Glad she found her way out.

    Would never have guessed that Joan Hart would have had these issues but it doesn’t sound like they lasted to long.
