It was bound to be a tough Thanksgiving for Mackenzie Phillips, who says her family has turned their backs on her two months after claiming she had an incestuous relationship with her dad, John Phillips.
"I’ve been uninvited to the family Thanksgiving,” Mackenzie told Access Hollywood's Nancy O' Dell. “I can’t make them come back. They have to come back on their own,” she said.
Mac's stepmom Michelle Phillips was furious with her stepdaughter when she released her book, High on Arrival, which detailed Mac's alleged affair with Michelle's husband. Michelle said at the time, “If these accusations were going to be made, they should have been made while John was alive.” But Mac thinks Michelle's statement was just irrational, saying “It’s just so strange that she thinks that I should have done it while he was alive. If I did, I’m sure she would have said I should have waited until he was dead. There’s never a right time for this family to hear this kind of stuff.”
Mackenzie does have one family member on her side in half-sister Chynna Phillips. “It pains Chynna that I won’t be able to be there with them,” she said. “I have made attempts [to talk to half-sister Bijou]. She just says, ‘I want nothing to do with you.’”
Even so, the One Day at a Time star says she doesn't hold all of this against her family. “It’s OK, it’s OK,” she said. “I love Michelle.”
