"I experimented with weed, Ecstasy, mushrooms and mescaline for about a year and a half," Melissa tells Life & Style, in anticipation of those revelations coming out in the book. One of Hart's craziest adventures involved 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," she says.

"I was kind of running with a bad crowd,” she reflects. In the end, "I just didn't enjoy taking drugs. I don't like the loss of control."

Other admissions in the book include make-out sessions with Jerry O'Connell (who she calls a "man-whore") and Backstreet Boy Nick Carter. And her biggest Hollywood feud? That would be with Ashton Kutcher! "Ashton and I just didn't get along," she says, adding that she tried -- and failed -- to get him kicked out of at least two parties.
