Mackenzie Phillips Gives New, Grossly Disturbing Meaning to the Term ‘Daddy’s Girl’
One Dad At A Time. I think. I can’t really confirm, as I haven’t read the book nor did I watch the Oprah special due to a self-imposed ban. I will never forgive her for President Obama-prah.
However… for Schadenfreude purposes I may have to lift that ban for one day. You see, the MacKenzie Phillips interview is a 2 part, Very Special Episode, so I may watch tomorrow. I’ll update if it turns out she also slammed some step-Dads or something. This is what I’ve learned so far:
It’s the dark secret she’s kept for decades, a secret shame finally revealed.
Former child star Mackenzie Phillips claims in a new explosive tell-all book that she had an incestuous affair with her father, John Phillips, leader of the famed ’60s pop group the Mamas and the Papas – a long-term relationship that grew to be consensual.
“On the eve of my wedding, my father showed up, determined to stop it,” she writes.
“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. 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.
Ah, the Summer of Love generation. I suppose “incestual” will now need to be added parenthetically before “Love”. I knew they drank electric kool-aid, but I didn’t know about the Electra Kool-aid!
At first, I thought to myself why the heck would she not only admit it, but publicize it? Then, I realized, um, SHE SLEPT WITH HER DAD. She ain’t right in the head.
Bless her heart. (that’s dumb redneck talk, for all you fancy smarty-pants Hollywood types. Hey, at least we keep our dirty laundry private. And the laundry isn’t dirty from, you know, having sex with our Dads!)
