Mackenzie Phillips, daughter of Mamas and the Papas singer John Phillips and star of the ’70s/’80s sitcom “One Day at a Time,” will appear on today’s “Oprah Winfrey Show” to promote her new book, High on Arrival. The book details a lifelong battle with every drug imaginable, as well as typical events in the life of a child growing up in a rock ‘n roll lifestyle, such as her seduction by Mick Jagger and her SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH HER FATHER. Get your barf bags ready, kids:
“On the eve of my wedding, my father showed up, determined to stop it,” writes Phillips, who was 19 and a heavy drug user at the time. “I had tons of pills, and Dad had tons of everything too. Eventually I passed out on Dad’s bed.”
“My father was not a man with boundaries [YA THINK? -Ed.]. He was full of love, and he was sick with drugs. I woke up that night from a blackout to find myself having sex with my own father.” [People]
The next day, Mackenzie went straight to the police to have her father put away for life. Oh wait. No. I’m mistaken. What I meant was they embarked on a long-term incestual relationship — she even went on tour with him. I always get those two confused.
“One night Dad said, ‘We could just run away to a country where no one would look down on us. There are countries where this is an accepted practice. Maybe Fiji.’ “He was completely delusional. No, I thought, we’re going to hell for this.” [via Animal New York]
In John’s defense, I’ve heard Fiji is lovely. Perfect for a romantic father-daughter getaway. It’s also a popular destination for necrobestiality cruises. They put the “I do” in “Fido.”
