The Hills showed viewers Stephanie Pratt growing out of her teens and into a young woman. But as her new biography reveals, the six seasons of the glossy show didn't touch on her very real struggles, including addiction to crystal meth and bulimia.
In Made in Reality, Pratt admits to becoming addicted to crystal meth when she was only 16 or 17 and attending Crossroads School for Arts & Science, a private college prep school in Santa Monica, California.
"I was on the extreme level, and addiction developed instantly," Pratt says in the current issue of New! magazine. The former reality star – who writes that she kept her meth kit in a Hello Kitty bag – tells the magazine, "[I smoked] probably four times before school, then at snack ... probably 12 or 13 times a day."

Although he felt too afraid to speak out for many years, comedian Wayne Brady is opening up once more about his longtime struggle with depression.
After revealing to Entertainment Tonight in November that he suffered a "breakdown" on his 42nd birthday last June, Brady points to the difficulty men have with opening up about mood disorders in a patriarchal culture that demands they hide their feelings.
"It's difficult for men in general, I think, because of just the way that we're raised," says Brady in the video exclusive to PEOPLE above. "We feel any of the negative emotions or that dark cloud settle on you, and you feel like you need to cry out or speak to someone about it, and, 'Nope, I'm not gonna do that, because I'm a man.' "
