In 2009, she published a memoir called unSweetined. In it, she wrote about growing up in front of the camera, drug abuses and getting sober. She wrote, “I probably had two bottles of wine, and I was only 14. That first drink gave me the self-confidence I had been searching for my whole life. But that set the pattern of the kind of drinking that I would do. At the time I started doing the hard drugs, the methamphetamine and coke and stuff, it was a lot easier to hide than drinking.”
