Melissa Joan Hart Reveals Drug Use, Same-Sex Hookup in New Memoir
Melissa Joan Hart‘s new memoir is called “Melissa Explains It All,” and among the things the actress is explaining in the tome are her past drug-fueled exploits and celebrity hookups.
Speaking to Life & Style magazine about the book, which comes out Oct. 29, the former teen star of “Clarissa Explains It All,” now 37, said, “I experimented with weed, Ecstasy, mushrooms and mescaline for about a year and a half.” She also claimed that in 1999, during her “third or fourth time on Ecstasy,” she made out in a limo with another girl on the way home, and then arrived at a photo shoot the next day while still high.
However, Hart insists that, while she dabbled in drugs, she never became addicted. “I was kind of running with a bad crowd,” she said. “I just didn’t enjoy taking drugs. I don’t like the loss of control.”
Hart also details some of her high-profile hookups in the book: She says she made out with Jerry O’Connell, whom she dubs a “man-whore,” and Backstreet Boy Nick Carter. One star whose charms she didn’t succumb to: Ashton Kutcher, who she says she tried to eject from her parties not once, but twice, for making “smartass remarks.” Hart says, “Ashton and I just didn’t get along.”
She has a show on ABC Family, right? It seems strange to reveal this stuff at this point in her career.
[quote] Who is more pathetic: Melissa Joan Hart or her co-star, Joey Lawrence?
Joey. He was a compere for the Chippendales. And his face work/grooming is awful.
I love how has beens write these books and drop names as if they were on the same level. Jerry O'Connell married a super model, I am pretty sure he was not desperate to get at a wonky eyed nut bag. I mean was Melissa Joan Hart ever considered hot? "ashton and I just did not get along..." lol because he did not want to fuck you at all??
I mean at this point I would think that gay harvey kid from Sabrina would be about her caliber of guy.

He went out with Ginger Spice...
It reminds me of when a relative found God and Amway.
He hosted his father's birthday party in a wide hallway of a church - which was fine because he and his wife are filthy slobs.
The night began with a lengthy prayer.
Our host then launched into a testimonial about his sinful past which included sex/drug/alcohol abuse and redemption.
Then he and his church friends sang an easy-listening Jesus song set to music from a boom box.
He finished by mentioning a plate was being passed around so we could all donate to the church's teen out-reach ministry.
His brother later apologized for his behavior and stated plainly that the guy narc'd on everyone the first time he'd tried weed and was known for puking after one beer.
TL;DR He fabricated a testimony to appeal to his megachurch friends.
She's trying to sell her book.
But why is she bringing out a book now? Is her show likely to be cancelled?
R17 - It's living on borrowed time.
So is Nate Richert (Harvey from "Sabrina") gay or not. There were rumors. He had more chemistry with Jon Huertas than MJH on that show.
She tried E and made out with a girl? Ooooooh.....she's so "edgy."
It'd have been easier to have had better chemistry with that raggedy ass animatronic cat than to have it with MJH.
I knew someone who worked on set on that show who swore that she kept getting knocked up and getting abortions.
Who was the same sex hookup, her TV aunts?
I remember hearing that she was a heavy drinker, back in the last 90s/early 00s.
r14 Hey Ginger Spice is a few rungs up the fame ladder over MJH. Funny you mention that. I remember coming out of the saddle ranch chop house and we are walking through the hotel garage next to it and this couple in front of us is talking and the woman is going on and on about soccer. My partners starts OMG in to me and I said what? He goes "that is ginger spice!!! what do we do?" So I said "excuse me" and she flipped around and said YEAAAAHS? I asked "are you Geri Halliwell?" and she goes YEAAAASH. It old her my partner was a big fan and could he take a picture with her. She said sure! All the while I was oblivious to her date. He taps me on the shoulder and asks if I want him to take the pic. It's Jerry lol. I just looked at him and said uh no but can you be in it?
They were both really nice.
Drug use? You big rebel, you! This book sounds RIVETING!!! Definitely worth the trees that were killed in order to print it. Who's bored enough to want to read about this twat?
What trees, R24? You sound old.
She didn't bang Britney ? They were tight at the height of her Sabrina the teen witch popularity.
Mescaline & shrooms? Was she selling black bean burritos at a grateful dead concert too?
I hear She lives in Westport ct I can't wait to run into her...
I know one thing, she and Joey Lawrence look like hammered shit now. BOTH well past their sell by date.
She's a television icon to a younger generation, co-starring in two of the most popular sitcoms of the last twenty five years. To a younger generation, she is there Lucille Ball and Mary Tyler Moore.
I remember when she was lusted after by many men back in the early 2000's. Her Maxim photoshoot was the stuff of legends.
R19, do you care? Nate Richert looks like this now:
She is full of shit, and was much wilder than she is letting on. What is the point if writing a 'tell all' book, and sugar coating things? She was a drunk, and slept around with everyone.
R20, fuck I know! Hell I've dropped a couple of E's and made out with a girl.
Next up will be a cook book. Then she'll star in informercials for skincare products. Finally, she'll "leak" a sex tape.
So she went from druggy slut to a Republican. How degrading.
[quote]She didn't bang Britney ? They were tight at the height of her Sabrina the teen witch popularity.
Maybe the girl is Britney. Wasn't she in one of Brit's videos?
"Met" her at an autograph signing as a kid when she was on Clarissa. She was a bitch...never once looked up from the table, and kept a tally of how many autographs she was signing (she was obviously being paid per signature). Hated her ever since.
[quote] and Backstreet Boy Nick Carter.
This must have been before Nicks' true muse, Kellie!!
Shoot me in the head for knowing this, but the Britney song "Crazy" was used to promote a movie starring MJHart and Adrien Grenier. All appear in the music video.
I'm guessing their "friendship" was for the cameras.
R22 - She was a binge drinker back in those days.
Below clip of Britney on Melissa's show Sabrina.
Damn, he looks like an old man now. He looks like the father on the 50s show Father Knows Best.
I heard MJH sucked cunt for both of her TV 'aunts' and you know what Miley did with that foam finger? That's what was going on with that ratty ass animatronic cat.
Making out with another woman while high doesn't qualify as a full-on "same-sex hookup" anymore, and a full-on "same-sex hookup" does not a memoir highlight make anymore. Yikes.
She's boring...and ordinary.
"She's a television icon to a younger generation, co-starring in two of the most popular sitcoms of the last twenty five years. To a younger generation, she is there Lucille Ball and Mary Tyler Moore."
You can't spell AND you're delusional. That's a winning combination.
Harvey's gay? He was really cute back then.
Has anyone read the book?
R44 Exactly. Since when is "making out" considered a hookup?
She's nothing but a conservative frau who thought a few stupid inserts about kissing a girl and trying ecstasy would help make her look edgy. Didn't work.
R48 No, but on reviews I've read about it, several people said the book was boring and that she gives off an "I'm better than you" vibe throughout the whole book.
Twist: The girl she made out with was really a drag queen.
