So Ms Phillips can dismiss incestuousness on the part of her father and she declares him a "good man." Ms Phillips needs a damn good psychologist.

The sickest thing about this story is that the degenerates have made her book #3 on Amazon.And topix is so enthralled that this is the sixth story about it.

No kidding!! Once a heroine addict always a heroine addict. They can not be trusted. They can look you in the eye and lie. You can usually tell because the preface their statements by "swear to God" Heroine will destroy everyones lives it comes close too. It is the evil poison of Satan. Hard to blame her when her father was instrumental in getting her to use drugs. I feel sorry for her family.

And how do we know her dad actually shot her up?After all, John Phillips is dead and she can say any whopper she wishes. I'm beginning to believe her step-mom, Michelle: I think she's fabricating a lot of this to sell books.

No, but I'm glad you did. She's always looked like a drowned rat to me.

How original..... just heard the same thing on Saturday night live...( just like you did)
And sorry but you are wrong. Ever hear of women selling their bodies for a cigarette. How about breaking and entering? losing their jobs, becoming homeless. Heroine is not Mothers Milk as you see to think.

"Poppies will make them sleeeep ..."

I wouldn't know about heroin, but quitting cigarets was h-a-r-d for me, boy howdy.

I just hope Ms Phillips doesn't take her new-found wealth and fall-off the wagon. The last thing she needs is drugs.

If you are like me, You do not dare smoke another cig because you would be right back on the train. I quit twice for six months only to start back up again. I then went dear hunting for 5 days without any cigs.... rough but it worked. Yet, I am way too scared to try another one. I quit 22 years ago but know it is more powerful than I am. Therefore, I stay away. Heroine, different story, My best friend died from an over douse. I never did the drug but watched it control his every move. Heart breaking to say the least. Mackenzie has pretended to be off the needle several times only to prove she was still using. That is what I mean, You can't trust them! so when I hear people tell me the addiction to Cigs is equal to heroine... well that is just silly. I just lost an employee to an addiction to Oxycodone. Next step after that is usually heroine because it is cheap and easy to obtain.

Moral of the story, don't put anything in your body that Grandma would not approve of and don't sleep with anyone that has the same last name as you...... ok unless it is your spouse. How Bout them Vikes!

And how terrible it must have been for you to watch someone you love and care for die slowly from addiction. I knew someone like that in LA, except he's not dead ... yet. A brilliant person who is still lost in a fog of drugs. No one can help him. I want to cry, thinking of the waste.

Ms Mackenzie, though I thought not very good in "One Day at a Time," was a credible actress, portraying a teen-aged, angst-filled Eleanor Roosevelt, on the TV mini-series "Eleanor and Franklin" in the 70s. Who knows what she could have accomplished?

Yes it was terrible my pain did not compare to what it did to his daughter, my God daughter. And I had to listen to his 2nd wife tell me how she shot him up in the morning which caused his death. I guess I just have to remind myself how blessed I am that my children did not play that game. Too depressing to think of! I don't want to have to climb up on top of that high bridge in your avatar and do a swan dive.

Sorry about no Paul Bunyan pic. I got tired of all the Paul and Babe statues I looked at. All of our statues of them look demented.
