Mackenzie -- 'There's a Time for Everything'

9/24/2009 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

With members of her own family attacking her credibility, Mackenzie Phillips hit the streets of NY last night and defended her decision to go public with the story of her incestuous decade long affair with own father.

Mackenzie Phillips: Click to watch
Although her father John died in 2001 and can't defend himself ... the 49-year-old "One Day at a Time" simply explained her decision by saying, "There's a time for everything."

And, of course, there's a time to sell books ....

John Phillips was a sleaze ball plain and simple. Read his autobigraphy, "Papa John". He admits to administering drugs to McKenzie, he brags about running off with the then under-aged Michelle Phillips and he was a convicted felon for drug traficking using illicit prescription pads. Incest is just the crowning "achievement" in a very sordid life.Havng said that, McKenzie was not an innocent victim with respect to the incest because she was an adult and it continued for ten years.

She is just as perverted and gross as her father because she carried on with him for ten years when a normal woman would never have spoken to him again after the first so-called rape. I believe it all happened and she was a willing participate.

I kinda tend to believe it. That whole family dynamic was as dysfunctional as it gets and she grew up on sex, drugs, and rock n roll. Bijou, the little sis, is none to normal either.

Maybe her timing was bad, but maybe she has been working it out for herself and now is the time to speak out about it.

She is so nasty for f**king her own dad for 10 years! Come on people who would do such a depraved thing. She has always been the least talented and most ugliest daughter in that family. She is jealous of her beautiful sisters. Why would the dad go after the filthy nasty daughter when the other daughters are so beautiful? Because he knew that Mackenzie is nothing but a sordid, filthy slut that's why. I blame her more than him because she wanted to do it and obviously did nothing to stop it.

I so wish this story wasn't true. But unfortunately it's so disgusting and crazy for it not to be true. this family is messed. they did drugs together. it's probably true about her and her father's love affair.

they are so going to burn in hell for it to. so disgusting what they did.

The problem with people who are famous is that they'll do whatever they have to keep all eyez on them.
Actors always seem to be the kid who cried wolf when it comes to things like this, I don't know what to believe.

She is just as guilty as John Philips because she let it happen when she was an adult and she continued it as an adult. Now she wants to put the blame all on her disgusting father. She is dirty too.

and people don't feel sorry for this woman. she's not a victim. i repeat NOT A VICTIM!she carried on 10 years (that's a decade) with a incest affair with her own father. victims do not carry on with consensual sex with their abusers. and she was 19 years old. She knew what she was doing was wrong. a 12 year old could tell having sex with one of your parents is just sick.

She would because she is lifelong drug abuser, broke, ugly,old,and on the Zlist.Her half-siblings-Bijou Phillips,Cyhnna Phillips,and other have done well.They had anawful. Bijou had a rotten mother too just like Mackenzie. John was awful. Yeas,incest with Mac,not buying it.

This case makes me think of the messed up Ryan O'Neal family. His kids claim he got them started on drugs and they all seem to go in and out of rehab--even the youngest son. They're all messed up and very pathetic. When parents are caught using drugs, children's services or the court system should make it mandatory that all their kids get tested for drugs, because the drug-addicted parents seem to think it's okay to start their kids on drugs.

Yes, this woman was a junkie starting at an early age. That is true. But her father is not here to defend himself and sometimes, it is best NOT to bring up your past to the world because she did not seem the victim on Oprah yesterday. She was a willing participant in this alleged incestuous relationship. There are many sicko relationships going on today and really, no one wants to hear about it. How is she going to explain all of this to her own child one day?

Also, to me, her credibility took a downward swing when she said she slept with Mike Jagger!!!! PULEEZE!!! Jagger dated/slept with "super model types" and even if he was in a drug induced haze, I cannot see him even thinking about sleeping with her!! Unless they shot up together and he figured "WTF!". TOO MANY HOT CHICKS were always throwing themselves at Jagger and he had the pick of the litter. No, this is where her credibility is questionable and if the rest of what she says is credible.

I'm sure others will start speaking out about these allegations because they are too sensational NOT to have reactions from those who really knew what went on.

This is gross and so very disturbing on soooo many levels I mean yuck! I get she needs to heal and all that blah blah blah but what is th epoint in making this public, what is she going to gain(but the sale of books, and honestly why buy the book u already know what's in it. I mean what could possibly top I was having sex with my dad...seriously that is the most disgusting thing I have ever heard) by telling everyone this story. Some family secrets should stay just that a secret seriously! That whole I was raped is total B.S. I don't buy it, people who were raped don't continue to have sex with the person.

Too much information. Whether or not this is true (her allegations) I think it's all just a ploy for attention/book promotion. This nutty actress has been in the news off and on for years with all sorts of issues and problems. She needs to go crawl back under her rock and stop annoying us with her life, her story, etc. Nobody cares. Let it go, tell your shrink but don't tell us. And no, I have no interest in reading your upcoming book. Ugh!
