Mackenzie Phillips 31 year old secret was revealed on Oprah and boy was it a shocker. Phillips revealed quite a few shockers actually, including that her father shot her up for the first time. Check out the video and read more here.
Mackenzie Phillips has written a memoir and appeared on Oprah to reveal some startling secrets from her past.
The former child star and daughter of The Mamas and The Papas singer, John Phillips, claims that her father not only shot her up with heroin for the first time, but they were also involved in an incestuous relationship.
“John was a bad parent, and a drug addict. But [expletive deleted] his daughter? If she thinks it’s true, why isn’t she with a good psychiatrist on a couch? I think it’s unconscionable that Oprah would let her do her show. I have every reason to believe it’s untrue. Oprah should be more judicious about who she has on her show. Mackenzie has a lot of mental illness. She’s had a needle stuck up her arm for 35 years. She was arrested for heroin and coke just recently. She did ‘Celebrity Rehab’ and now she writes a book. The whole thing is timed.”
Mackenzie’s sister Chyna, says she knew and believes her sister telling US Weekly,
“… she went on to tell me that she had had an incestuous relationship with our dad for about 10 years. Somebody could have dropped a piano on my head and I probably wouldn’t have felt it. But I knew it was true. I mean, who in their right mind would make such a claim if it wasn’t true?”
Well, lets certainly hope that Mackenzie wouldn’t lie about such a horrible thing. One would think that coming off of a lifetime of addiction and drug abuse, you would need to air out the skeletons in the closet, but is this a bit much? Should it have been discussed with her psychiatrist maybe, being that John Phillips died in 2001, and there is no way for him to deny or confirm the allegations?
