That poor court monitor!    

The fact is that Papa John Phillips most definitely seriously abused and violated his oldest daughter, Mackenzie Phillips. He shot her up with Cocaine and when she was only a teenager - hello? No one but Mackenzie will ever know the truth of this situation, but I do love the poetic justice now being thrown back at Papa John Phillips along with all of his wives. Nobody protected young Mackenzie.
Karma can be a real bitch.

I think the reason this is all coming to light so very late is the fact that she's a nobody and needs money to buy drugs. She's just using this as an excuse, such a loser!!!!!!!

Its people like Josie who make me sick. Your totally getting off the subject because your obviously ignorant. This isn't about you or me and that is is all im going to say about a person like you.

You are not HUMAN if you don't feel caring/sadness or upset/angry about what happened to this women as a young girl and others like her. Frankly i think something is wrong with you for saying such rudeand disgusting things ..
You'll get yours from the others now , im sure...
im finished with responding to your comments, because personally your not worth it.

You learn what you're taught and it's pretty obvious what she was taught. I'm praying for you Mackenzie. Perhaps only you know what did and didn't happen, but you're the only one that you need to be true to anyway so hang in there, be strong, and keep moving forward. Judge not people, you're not perfect little sin-free angels either.

To those of you calling for compassion and for an end to spewing hatred for self serving attention seeking has been celebrities....I would like to call for an end to spewing filth and absurdities to subject the whole world to hear repulsive stories for the sole purpose of getting attention. Our compassion is reserved for the hungry, the homeless, our troops and those dealing with the deaths of loved ones(not spitting on their graves with filthy mind and mouth)and other suffering souls. Send the money she is charging for the book to a truly worthy cause then come back on here and call us names for not reserving our compassion for a selfish hateful has been.

The reality is over 37% of women were sexually abused/molested by their fathers, family or friends. It's probably much higher as nobody reports it. The reason women do not reveal this is that people criticize them as if they are the perpetrators and not the victims. This is a horrible crime, unthinkable! for a girl to be raped/molested by her own father carried a lifetime of shame and guilt. It's only becomes worse when people call you a liar. Women who speak out later, after their fathers pass away, is to start the healing process, because he is your father you cannot publically persecute him, its too shameful. Her pattern of self torment through out the years is what a majority of women do to not feel the pain, shame, guilt. The victims always feel this, and society still makes them feel this way. They are victims! Oprah was molested by her father, so she can feel the pain. Only other women with similiar vicimizations can possibly understand. I hope God will guide her thru this healing process and hopefully open the doors to other victims to speak out. It's far more than any of you know. There are many skeletons in many closets. Many times when your a child you tell, but nobody wants to believe you as this would turn their way of life upside down, its easier to deny it. People who are molested/raped must deal with the agony on their own, thus drugs and liquor come into play. If you have one ounce of faith in God, do not torment this woman more than she already has done to herself, pray that she and others can finally heal.

I'm the one who called for compassion and the end of spewing hatred. And I didn't call anyone here names. I agree that we should have compassion for the homeless, our troops and the others you mentioned, although I don't think our compassion should be reserved for just those folks. We're all human beings and should be treated as such. That includes Miss Phillips, her sick, perverted deceased dad, and everyone typing comments on this story, no matter their view. I'd rather not use my mind to hate. Life's too short to waste it like that. I hope she finds her way to happiness in her lifetime.
