NEW YORK (CBS/AP) A horrifying, almost unbelievable revelation has come out from Mackenzie Phillips, daughter of legendary musician John Phillips.

The 49-year-old former child star, best known as Julie on the sitcom "One Day at a Time," sat down with Oprah Winfrey to reveal a family secret she's kept hidden for 31 years.

In a preview of her book "High on Arrival," on People.com, she says she had an incestuous relationship with her father, John Phillips of the Mamas and Papas.

He's not around to defend against the accusation, and it's not as though she had means to stop or publicize her situation. She was exposed early and often to a drug and sex-riddled environment, but thought she was estranged from her father.

It was either gonna be McKenzie or Mamma Cass. You make the call.


A couple of lines from freak alley make more sense now though

John and Mitchy were getting kinda itchy
Just to leave the folk music behind;
Zal and Denny workin' for a penny
Tryin' to get a fish on the line.
In a coffee house Sebastian sat,
And after every number they'd pass the hat.
McGuinn and McGuire just a-gettin' higher in L.A.,
You know where that's at.
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass.

Zally said, "Denny, you know there aren't many
Who can sing a song the way that you do; let's go south."
Denny said, "Zally, golly, don't you think that I wish
I could play guitar like you."
Zal, Denny, and Sebastian sat (at the Night Owl)
And after every number they'd pass the hat.
McGuinn and McGuire still a-gettin higher in L.A.,
You know where that's at.
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass.

When Cass was a sophomore, planned to go to Swathmore
But she changed her mind one day.
Standin' on the turnpike, thumb out to hitchhike,
"Take me to New York right away."
When Denny met Cass he gave her love bumps;
Called John and Zal and that was the Mugwumps.
McGuinn and McGuire couldn't get no higher
But that's what they were aimin' at.
And no one's gettin' fat except Mama Cass.

Mugwumps, high jumps, low slumps, big bumps---
Don't you work as hard as you play.
Make up, break up, everything is shake up;
Guess it had to be that way.
Sebastian and Zal formed the Spoonful;
Michelle, John, and Denny gettin' very tuneful.
McGuinn and McGuire just a-catchin' fire in L.A.,
You know where that's at.
And everybody's gettin' fat except Mama Cass.

Broke, busted, disgusted, agents can't be trusted,
And Mitchy wants to go to the sea.
Cass can't make it; she says we'll have to fake it---
We knew she'd come eventually.
Greasin' on American Express cards;
Tents low rent, but keeping out the heat's hard.
Duffy's good vibrations and our imaginations
Can't go on indefinitely.
And California dreamin' is becomin' a reality...

I think she is serving as a warning for all other children of musicians who then may grow up to be child actors in a situational comedy.
Bless her.
