What kind of person airs their dirty laundry on Oprah? That’s easy, people selling books! It never ceases to amaze what people will put in their books, and then try to justify the damage they’ve done as “necessary” or “needed” or “therapeutic”. I don’t know what happened between Mackenzie Phillips and her dad, and I’ll never know as he’s not around to give his side of the story. What I do know is she’s trying to promote her book and her methods are disingenuous at best and downright slimy at worst. The last line of my limerick pretty much says it all.
Mackenzie is waking up ghosts,
With stories that many think gross.
Impelled to tell?
Or a new book to sell.
I can’t decide who to hate most.
