Incest Chic MacKenzie Phillips Introduces David Hasselhoff To Oprah Winfrey

by | 25th, September 2009

MacKenzie PhillipsWHILE the British media talks about Katie Price’s rape, over in the US MacKenzie Phillips is selling her story of sex with her father John Phillips, late lead singer of the The Mamas & the Papas. David Hasselhoff approaches.

MacKenzie says at 19 she was raped by her musician father and then partook of a consensual 10-year sexual relationship with him.

“I woke up that night from a blackout to find myself having sex with my own father. I don’t remember how it started or, thankfully, how it ended. Was it the first time? Had this happened before? I didn’t know, and I still don’t. All I can say is it was the first time I was aware of it. For a moment, I was in my body…in that horrible truth and then I slide back into a blackout. Your father is suppose to protect you.”

MacKenzie makes he confession in her memoir High on Arrival was released, and repeats it on the Oprah Winfrey show.

Anroak’s Man in The Hollywood Swamp tuned in:

Oprah went there Wednesday and she’s returning today (Friday) when she brings back Mackenzie Phillips for day two of her sordid discussion of how she and daddy did the nasty for ten years. This time, she’s bringing little sis, Chynna Phillips, along for the trudge through the sludge.

After a disappointing 2008-09 season in the ratings, the Big O has been kicking some syndicated ass since last Monday’s Whitney Houston premiere. She stretched that interview into a two-day affair, and cleaned up in the Nielsen overnights in the process.

Looks like she’s hoping for the same from a second appearance by Phillips.

Incest. Viewers can’t get enough of it.

What’s more ghastly than Phillip Garrido hiding Jaycee Dugard in his shed for 18 years and giving her two babies in the process? Mackenzie Phillips having drug-fueled incestuous sex with her father.

Oprah can get Jaycee Dugard in a double-header. The Telegraph glances at Google keywords and provides context:

Her sensational allegations have served to split the only showbiz family who are more dysfunctional than the Jacksons.

Two of John Phillips’ ex-wives, Michelle Phillips and Genevieve Waite, have denounced the story, but what is undisputable is that Phillips has one of the worst and wildest reputations in rock.

So she can be believed? Let’s have a heated debate:

Hell no!

Mackenzie has a lot of mental illness,” stepmother Michelle Phillips said. “She’s had a needle stuck up her arm for 35 years. She was arrested for heroin and coke just recently. She did ‘Celebrity Rehab’ and now she writes a book. The whole thing is timed,” Michelle Phillips said.

You’re dreamin’

I spoke to Michelle this morning by phone; she has not read Mackenzie’s book, published today, called “High on Arrival.” Michelle Phillips says that in 1997, Mackenzie told everyone in their extended family that she and her father, Michelle’s famous former husband, had had a sexual relationship.
“She told me, then she called me back and said, ‘You know I’m joking,’ ” Michelle told me. “I said it wasn’t funny. Mackenzie said, ‘I guess we have different senses of humor.’”

Hell yes!

Chynna told US she “knew it was true,”

Making Incest your own cause

She further added “If you open a textbook on incest you can see a picture of the Phillips family,” Phillips said. “We are behaving in a typical way. The instinct is to say it’s not true. The instinct is to deny. The instinct is to brush it under the table. The instinct is to protect the abuser.”

Making the brand

Not to downplay the seriousness of Mackenzie Phillips’ shocking claims against her famous father, but this former actress has launched what will surely be one of the most successful marketing plans for a tell-all book since…well, this doesn’t really compare to anything else. First, Phillips shared a shocker with Oprah. Now, she continues to tell her tale despite input from stepmom Michelle Phillips. By the time this book is on the shelves, there’s no doubt that Mackenzie will be at the top of the New York Times bestseller list. Who says the print industry is struggling?Gearlive

A celebrity trend

We’re still one father-daughter pairing short of a media-certified trend, but as of this morning “celeb blurred family boundaries” is tracking on the Hollywood horrors power rankings chart with a big up arrow. Hours after McKenzie Phillips’ revelations of her “consensual” sexual relationship with her father swept media by storm, singer/talent judge/tabloid coverboy David Hasselhoff, a man who can’t stand to sit on the sidelines of history, threw his 17-year-old daughter into the car and headed straight over to West Hollywood’s noted sex shop Coco de Meraccording a TMZ report.
