Mackenzie Phillips on NOprah. What a mess; a train wreck, from which I could not look away. Drugs. Sex. Rock'n'roll. Incest. it was all a bit too much. Apparently, under the influence of drugs, a lot of drugs, Mackenzie Phillips and her father, John Phillips, began a ten-year consensual sexual relationship.
Ick. I'll get that out of the way early on.
The "relationship" ended when Mackenzie became pregnant and didn't know if the father was her boyfriend or her father.
Now, I don't use drugs. Never have. So I can only imagine what mass quantities of heroin and coke and, well, god knows what else, will do to you, and allow you to have done to you.
Is Mackenzie lying about the incest to make some coin on a book?
Only she knows.
And that goes for the incest as well.
Only she knows.
A couple of her father's ex-wives have come forward to speak up for John Phillips, who passed away a few years back. They stand up for him by calling him a drug addict and a degenerate, but state quite firmly that he never had sex with his daughter.
How do they know?
This isn't something you speak about over dinner. it isn't "Pass the peas and, oh, by the way, I'm schtupping my daughter."
It isn't like that at all.
So the ex-wives should keep quiet and speak only to what they know.
I'm not saying Mackenzie Phillips is telling the truth, or even that she's lying to sell a couple of books. I'm saying the only people who know whether or not this happened are Mackenzie Phillips and her father.
Sadly, he isn't here to dispute anything.
