Melissa Joan Hart talks past drug use, partying Published: September 26, 2013

Melissa Joan Hart is a happily married mother of three, but she's spilling secrets from her past growing up as a child actor, according to USA TODAY.

The site reports the former star of Nickelodeon's “Clarissa Explains It All” writes in a new tell-all book about past drug use and steamy makeout sessions with co-stars — and she's naming names!

"I experimented with weed, Ecstasy, mushrooms and mescaline for about a year and a half," Hart tells “Life & Style.” In her book, Melissa Explains It All, out Oct. 29, she writes of taking Ecstasy at the Playboy Mansion in 1999, making out with a girl in the limo ride home — and then heading to a Maxim photo shoot while still high. "That was my third or fourth time on Ecstasy," reveals Hart, USA TODAY reports.
