Mackenzie Phillips Talks Incest Backlash
The Mamas and the Papas offspring opens up about her conversations with fellow survivors of incest.
Last September actress Mackenzie Phillips dropped a bombshell the size of a small country: She once had an incestuous relationship with her father, John Phillips.
Speaking for the first time since then, Mackenzie appeared on Good Morning America Wednesday to discuss her shocking confession and to show off her $50,000 makeover (which included Botox, Restylane and hair treatments).
Touching on her previous claim that her father molested her as a teenager, Mackenzie said, “I’ve learned from thousands of survivors across several continents… that there is no such thing as consensual incest, because of the inherent power. I do not believe [my father] had malicious intent… I believe he was a man who was ravaged by drugs and alcohol.”
Despite the backlash she has received for her confession and her sordid past, Mackenzie says she has “no desire to erase anything.” (RadarOnline)
