Thoughts on MacKenzie Phillips

Well, if actress MacKenzie Phillips was seeking attention she sure got it when she revealed that she and her late father, John Phillips (founder of The Mamas & The Papas) had an incestuous relationship on The Oprah Winfrey Show. Her book, High on Arrival, which documents the alleged affair is set to be released on September 29th.

Michelle Phillips, the last surviving member of The Mamas & The Papas who was married to Phillips from 1962 to 1970, isn't buying it.

However, Phillips is due to return to Oprah tomorrow with her half sister, Chynna Phillips (of Wilson Phillips fame.)

Obviously, I don't know if she is telling the truth or she isn't. Either way it's all very disturbing.

The one thing that bothers me about this whole matter is that John Phillips is dead and cannot defend himself.

As a mother, I can't imagine her torment! She was very brave last Friday and just the raise in phone calls to the incest & sexual abuse hotlines proves Mackenzie to be a hero. I am so proud of her. I hope that this "letting go" gives her the will to stay away from drugs and gives her a life of peace and normalality. Again, she is a hero. One more thing ... she looks fabulous!!!
