In trouble againAh, what the hell. Regular rehab just hasn't seem to do the trick for Mackenzie. She's said to have tried it six times. I grew up watching her on One Day At A Time, the show she was fired from not once, but twice, after her drug abuse made her unable to function.
Since then Mackenzie has floated in and out of the public spotlight. I thought she'd finally gotten it together, but sadly that doesn't seem to be the case.
Mackenzie got popped this morning at LAX when a search of her carry-on luggage discovered what is thought to be cocaine and heroin. She was arrested on the spot and is believed to still be in custody.
Raised in the rock 'n' roll culture of the '60s by her famous parents, John and Michelle Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas, Mackenzie started experimenting with drugs at a very young age, and by 18 her father was showing her how to shoot up. It's a sad footnote for a once promising career. I hope she can find a program that works for her - and stick with it this time.
