Melissa Joan Hart explained it all—from dating to bullies—in her groundbreaking role as Clarissa Darling on Clarissa Explains It All. She cast a spell on millions more as Sabrina, the Teenage Witch. Now, in Melissa Explains It All, Melissa tells the frank and funny behind-the-scenes stories from her extraordinary television past and her refreshingly normal present.
From her first commercial to her current starring role in ABC Family's hit Melissa and Joey, Hart never let fame go to her head. She always had one foot in Hollywood and one foot in reality—and still does. Melissa makes us laugh along with her as she talks about:
--Guest appearances on shows like Saturday Night Live and The Equalizer
--Auditioning for Punky Brewster and Clarissa
--Her early Broadway days
-- Actors who influenced her and whom she befriended, worked with and competed against
--Her experiences both on and off-set—with Sabrina's Salem the Cat and Elvis the Alligator on Clarissa
--Meeting the love of her life at the Kentucky Derby
Melissa Joan Hart explains all that she's learned along the way—what's kept her grounded, normal and working when others have not been so fortunate—and shows that she's the approachable, hilarious girl-next-door her fans have always thought she'd be.
