Oprah has celebrities wagging their tongues to spill the secrets and hidden shit that is brush under the carpet by their publicist. You thought you were gagging during the Whitney Houston interview, wait until you watch today when she has Mackenzie Phillips on her show. It will leave you breathless and stunned. Former child star Mackenzie Phillips has a new memoir out, High on Arrival, and an interview that will air on Oprah today. I find it ironic that every time a celebrity is about to sell their book, here comes the molestation charges against their parent (s) long after the person died or is too old to remember doing such heinous acts against their own child. John Phillips died away in 2001. I am not saying McKenzie is lying but these stories make me scratch my head in disbelief. It is sad and makes you wonder what is really going on in these celebrities homes once the cameras stop rolling? There were four other children: Jeffrey, Chynna, Tamerlane and Bijou. Jeffery is Mackenzie’s full brother and Chynna, Tamerlane and Bijou are her half sisters.I wonder if they are going to remember the molestation or was she the only one to suffer at the hands of her father? Phillips reveals that she had a sexual relationship with her now-deceased dad, John Phillips of the band The Mamas & the Papas, that she thinks started when she was 19 on the night before her first wedding. She tells a very heart-wrenching story of how she got wasted and woke up out of a blackout in bed and having sex with her dad. On Oprah, she says she is “not sure” if this happened before that night and adds “all I can say is it was the first time I was aware of it.”

Mackenzie Phillips, the trouble-plagued eldest daughter of the late Mamas & the Papas frontman John Phillips, says in an interview with Oprah Winfrey, airing tomorrow, that she was a victim of rape at the hands of her famous father. Phillips says in her new memoir, High on Arrival (which she discussed with the daytime queen), that she confronted John, who died in March 2001, about their sordid past, saying, “We have to talk about when you raped me.” To which John replied, according to his daughter, “You mean when we made love?” Ugh. “Interviewed One Day at a Time’s Mackenzie Phillips,” Winfrey wrote on Twitter this afternoon. Thought I’d heard it all…beyond shocking! We’re airing it Wednesday.” Phillips, 49, is John’s daughter with his first wife, Susan Adams. Bijou and Chynna Phillips, who also have different moms, are her half-sisters. The rock-and-roll progeny has battled drug addiction and has been in trouble with the law off and on since she was a teenager, problems that derailed her promising acting career. Most recently, she was arrested for cocaine possession at Los Angeles International Airport last summer. She also talks in her book about her father supplying her with drugs when she was a kid, an unsavory habit that ultimately led to the biggest parent-child betrayal of all. “On the eve of my wedding, my father showed up, determined to stop it,” Phillips wrote. “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.” Phillips was 19 at the time. “I was a fragment of a person, and my secret isolated me,” she wrote.
