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 ....

Why didn't Mackenzie Phillips speak about her "consensual" relationship with her father while he was still alive and could defend himself or could be sent to prison? She is a slut in my estimation! Maybe she is dead broke and has found a way to make a quick buck, as such she decided to "tell all." I won't buy her book and hope others won't either, but we are so hooked on "SOAP" that thousands would go rushing to the book stores just because the story broke on Oprah. What a sick society we are!

I am soooo sick of this girl and her dysfunctional life. How many times do we have to hear about her drug/alcohol problems, rehab, and now her incestuous relationship with her father? Give me a break. Get over it McKenzie. You can heal without telling the world what a mess you are.

Does anyone even remember this girl? Was she shortchanged in the will like Tori Spelling and that's why she wrote that garbage?
Another shortlived book that will be in the dollar bin in a couple of weeks.
Buy some Botox or a facelift. You look like a 70 year old ex junkie.

Another former star degrading a loved one who cannot defend himself. Can't make money on screen, try and make it behind. It's all about making money and getting national exposure. She doesn't care how badly it hurts the family.

I have my doubts, also, but even if it WERE true, why would I want to read about something so sick? Ew. If she needed the catharsis, that's what therapists are for, not publishers. Not only that, she's not even a star anymore. There aren't that many Hollywood people whose private lives I'm interested in...she's definitely not on my list.

I didn't like her on One Day at a Time and you can tell by looking at her hat all she has been is a druggie. I would be so ashamed if I were her and wouldn't tell all the trash she has been through and let by gones be by gones. She should have had better sense than to do what she did. She seems proud to have slept with Mick Jaggar also.

God Bless you for finding the strength and voice to air your truth. It explains a lot about the drug abuse and wild child past.

This is more prevalent in our society than anyone wants to admit to. As a sociologist, I can tell you, this woman is one strong character to have survived such a mess of a life.

Violations of trust, both physical and mental, of this nature usually leave the victim dead. Remember, she was a child, he was an adult.

Shame on those that judge harshly but: forgive them Father,they know not what they do.

you people are so cruel! there's no such thing as a 'consensual' relationship with a pre-teen/teenager! those who knew her father knew he was strange ... he alluded to the incest previously ... and this poor woman has suffered enormously throughout her life ... and I bet most of you would say your were christians! awful, the lot of you!

Wow...most of you people who are putting this woman down for coming out about a life trauma should be ashamed of yourselves, you never learned how to spell. Before you go on line telling someone to go away learn how to spell. You might be taken a bit more serious.

Hey, hey...all of you out there - be a little kind and gentle on her, ok. Mackenzie grew up in the 60's - and her Dad was a privileged hippie rock star - so much insane decadence went on back then, sex, drugs, rock & roll, money, groupies...all boundaries were being tested and broken...so many new ideas...some of them wonderful (like end war, love your neighbor - and I don't mean carnally)...but, many of these ideas were perverse and just MORALLY WRONG...Obviously, NOBODY EVER SHOULD BREAK THE INCEST BOUNDARY - or the PEDOPHILE BOUNDARY. And, if Mackenzie Phillips has been totally f-ed up on and off over the years on drugs and booze - (even though she was clean and sober for years and had a relapse) and she is dealing with it the best way she can...well, it might be because her own father had his way with her and then convinced her, over time, that he was "loving her" and that it was "consensual" to have sex with your own father - and that somehow this was ok. God help us that we should besmirch the name of Mighty John Phillips of the Mamas & Papas - ok - perhaps a musical genius, but a personal failure in so many ways. Please don't judge Mackenzie too harshly for coming out and saying what happened - she is trying to deal with a painful past. How many of you women out there were molested as kids...a brother, a step-dad, an uncle a neighbor...ok...leave Mac alone!! "Judge not, lest ye be judged."
