E! News correspondent Giuliana Rancic aired a “Beyond Candid” interview with actress Melissa Joan Hart Monday (Feb. 17), where Hart talks about everything from her childhood stardom to her tell-all memoir to being a mom in Hollywood.

“It’s a struggle [finding a balance],” says Hart, of trying to work and be a good mom. “The kids always come first, but sometimes I have to miss a school play, sometimes I have to miss a karate belt — when they’re graduating to a higher belt. But thank god for Skype.”

When it comes to her book, “Melissa Explains it All,” and the exploits she recounts inside, Hart says, “It’s not that I was a bad girl or that I was too much of a good girl, it’s that I never got caught,” though she adds that today would be entirely different, what with the paparazzi and social media being what they are in the entertainment world.

Later, Hart details the night she partied at the Playboy mansion all night right before her first Maxim shoot. She rolled on some Xcstasy that night, which she says made her more relaxed and “probably more sexy” than she would have been otherwise.

In case you missed it, you can check out these clips, where Hart also talks about making out with Ryan Reynolds on the set of “Sabrina the Teenage Witch.”
