Out on the promotional trail, Mackenzie Phillips was spotted returning to her New York City hotel after making an appearance on the “Today” show today (September 24).
The former child star looked to be in a good mood as she smiled for the paparazzi, sporting a maroon top with slim fit jeans and black boots.
Mackenzie has been promoting her new memoir “High on Arrival,” in which she discloses that she had an ongoing sexual relationship with her father, Mamas and Papas musician John Phillips.
And the strange thing is that she has been defending her dad for taking advantage of her as a teen. In her “Today” show interview, she explained, "My father was not a bad man. He was a very sick man. And if anyone out there can possibly separate his body of work from his personal demons, I think that would be the honorable thing to do."
She continued, "At 18, I was molested. Then maybe three years later, I started waking up later with my pants down around my ankles. And then maybe two years after that, it became consensual."
