There's been a very prevalent trend among the spawn of Hollywood legends (and not-so-legends...Ryan O'Neill, in my book, will never qualify). I would trace this back to Christina Crawford's tell-all, which because that infamous cult classic, Mommie Dearest. If you have seen it, there's no need for me to wax on it. It doesn't paint the film icon in a positive light, and I think we can all safely assume there was some exaggeration involved. Then you go forward to like, Ryan and Tatum, and so many others that I don't feel like naming. "Oh, blah blah blah, my famous dad/mom/guardian was SUCH a dick, let me tell the world about it and meanwhile collect publicity for myself kthnx."
Well now we can Mackenzie Phillips, daughter of famed PAPA JOHN Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas to that list. apparently, on a recent interview with talk show guru/deity Oprah, (if you haven't heard this by now LISTEN UP) slept with her dad when they were both in the middle of drug-fueled hormone attacks!
Okay, first of all, what good does it accomplish to exclaim this to the world? Are you just reinforcing the notion that SOMETIMES DRUGS ARE BAD, Mackenzie? Are you trying to dirty up the reputation of my personal favorite Mama and Papa? Or are you still bitter that Disney cancelled "So Weird?"
I just don't think this is called for ... like, I don't doubt it could have happened, but still. why fan those flames? your dad is dead, Mackenzie, much like your career. despite the interest this is generating in your direction, your best work will always be AMERICAN GRAFFITI.
Bijou would have never done this!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Danny Masterson, there's our answer!
