Anyone remeber the 90s TV show, Clarissa Explains It All? Well, Melissa Joan Hart, the former Nickelodeon teen-star has revealed her secret ‘wild side’ in a new publicity stunt to gain more interest in herself, an “exciting tell-all” book. Shame.
She told Life & Style magazine:
“I experimented with weed, Ecstasy, mushrooms and mescaline for about a year and a half, I was kind of running with a bad crowd, I just didn’t enjoy taking drugs. I don’t like the loss of control.”
She wants everyone to know that she was not addicted to any of the aforementioned substances (possibly because addiction has a bad rep – but taking drugs does not?) and apparently Paris Hilton offered her cocaine once and she turned it down. Paris’ rep denied this, obviously.
She also goes on to boast about her past sucking face sessions with various celebs including former Backstreet Boy, Nick Carter.
Now, I’m all for memoirs of celebrities, autobiographies if you will – but this seems a bit… dare I say, desperate? There appears to be a lot of name dropping, not to mention substance-name dropping, a lot of high tales that may or may not be true and a very unoriginal name?
Sounds like a terrible read. I’ll give this one a miss!
