Jason Wahler is the latest celeb to open up about his battle with substance abuse and addiction in the wake of Philip Seymour Hoffman's death.
On Thursday, the former The Hills star, 27, wrote a personal essay for The Huffington Post, in which he explained how he deftly kept his addiction a secret from his friends.
"A few years ago, I would host parties at my house in L.A. where there would be 50-100 people raging out of control. While everyone thought I was enjoying the party as much as they were, little did they know I was secretly going into the master bathroom and snorting as much coke and drinking as much alcohol as I could," Wahler reveals, adding that he became quite adept at keeping secrets.

A few years ago, millions of viewers anxiously tuned in to catch an infamous MTV screaming match at then-Hollywood hot spot Les Deux that forever changed the relationship between best friends – and The Hills reality starlets – Lauren Conrad and Heidi Pratt.
Fast-forward to the present, Heidi (née Montag), 27, says the night that made "You know what you did" a household phrase is now water under the bridge.
"I've talked to [Lauren] a few times on the phone and we've caught up," Heidi told PEOPLE on Friday. "She's been really sweet. The last time we talked was like a year ago. I lost her number so I haven't been able to call her [recently]. I told her I got really caught up and I was sorry about how things happened. I told her I miss her and she told me she'd always be there for me."

Lauren Conrad may be planning her nuptials to William Tell, but she says her wedding is just a minor part of their relationship.
"You have the rest of your life to be married. Enjoy falling in love. When girls get caught up in the timeline, it becomes more about the wedding than the marriage. You should be with someone with whom you could elope this weekend and be happy," the Paper Crown designer tells Cosmopolitan.
But Conrad, 27, admits the engagement was a surprise.
"I had no idea it was coming. I thought he would wait until he finished law school," she says.

Another star of The Hills is headed for the altar!
Whitney Port is engaged to Tim Rosenman, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.
Port, 28, began dating Rosenman, an associate producer from her spinoff series, The City, in 2012 after she split from fellow MTV star Ben Nemetin.
The reality star-turned-designer recently appeared in the CW Seed's animated series Gallery Mallory.

Believe it or not, Emma Watson considers the Kardashians an inspiration.
In Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, Watson, 23, plays an L.A. teenager who becomes part of a criminal gang, and the actress says she has Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and a few other reality TV stars to thank for helping her perfect the role.
"I watched a lot of Keeping up with the Kardashians and The Hills, and I tried to understand the psychology of this kind of girl as much as possible," Watson told reporters at Cannes. "I didn't want her to be just a parody. The accent was hard as it was a particular kind of dialect. I also thought a lot about what her parents must have been like."
Though it's inspired by true events, Watson says the film's more than a crime movie.

She's moving on up.
Lauren Conrad has left the Hills – that is, her $1.3 million condo in Beverly Hills – for a new place in the ritzy Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.
The reality star and fashion designer, 27, has plunked down $3.745 million on a spacious New England-style home – a two-story property extensively renovated by celebrity designer and star of Bravo's Flipping Out, Jeff Lewis.

Real or fake?
Two and a half years after its finale, it's a question that still dogs MTV's The Hills. And now, just weeks after Lauren Conrad claimed much of the show was essentially true, Kristin Cavallari has said almost the opposite.
The show was "pretty fake," Cavallari, 25, said Monday on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live.
"Did they tell you what to say and stuff?" host Andy Cohen replied. "Pretty much," said Cavallari. "Fake relationships, fake fights ... but it was fun, 'cause you're acting. And that was more fun for me."

It's a mouse off!
When it comes to friendship, Hills costars Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari might not always see eye to eye. But when it comes to Halloween, the former frenemies are on the same cute-costume page: Minnie Mouse!
With baby Camden at home, Cavallari tried on mouse ears and gloves while hosting the Bing It On Halloween Costume Challenge in New York City on Friday. Wearing shorts and sky high Louboutin heels, the new mom, 25, added her own sexy twist.

The Hills are alive with the sound of club music!
Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt celebrated the three year anniversary of Crazy Horse III Gentlemen's Club in Las Vegas on Friday night.
Montag – who hosted the event – arrived wearing skin-tight black leather shorts and a see-through black top.
Joined by husband Pratt, the former Hills costars sat at a VIP table where they toasted with Dom Perignon Champagne and Patrón shots.
"Heidi came to the club with a mission – to get her first ever lap dance!" an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "Heidi selected two bombshell dancers and she showered them in $1 bills."

By the time Kristin Cavallari joined The Hills, the show's plots may have been highly exaggerated, but when Lauren Conrad was still on, she says much of it was actually real.
"I think the story they told wasn't a dishonest one," Conrad, 26, tells Allure in its November cover story. "The way they did it sometimes was. They aren't going to be there for everything. Sometimes two of their main characters will get into a fight, and that's important to the story line. The [producers] need that reenacted."
One true plot was a romance with Brody Jenner.
