Mackenzie Phillips' Big Regret About Revealing Her Incest Secret On ‘Oprah’
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
When former child star Mackenzie Phillips dropped the bombshell on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" in 2009 that she'd had a 10-year sexual relationship with her famous father, Mamas and Papas member John Phillips, everyone was shocked -- including her family, by their own accounts. Michelle Phillips, Mackenzie's former stepmother and Mamas and Papas member, expressed outrage that Mackenzie was appearing on TV instead of sitting on a therapist's couch. John's wife at the time of the alleged abuse, Genevieve Waite, issued a firm statement of denial. Even Mackenzie's supportive half-sisters, Chyna and Bijou, were devastated by the story. (John Phillips had passed away in 2001.) Given the family reaction, the public frenzy and the ongoing pain that resulted in the wake of her reveal, it's natural to wonder if Mackenzie now regrets anything about how the events played out nearly seven years ago. Oprah asks the 56-year-old this very question when the two sit down for a f...

Good Boy Gone Bad?
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
NEW YORK — In just four years, Justin Bieber has gone from fielding innocuous questions about his haircut to denying that he's in desperate need of rehab. Bieber's grown up and into tabloid territory, with his recent troubles making some question whether he's just the latest teen star gone wild. In what could have been his worst week ever, the 19-year-old pop star struggled with his breathing and fainted backstage at a London show, was taken to a hospital and then was caught on camera clashing with a paparazzo. Days earlier, he was booed by his beloved fans when he showed up late to a concert. Those incidents come after photos of Bieber appearing to smoke marijuana hit the Web, and some headlines have suggested that the ultra-popular star is going through a famous Britney Spears-style meltdown. Others suggest he's struggling with a more common condition: being a teenager. Donnie Wahlberg, who was just 14 when New Kids on the Block debuted on the music scene...

Did you notice that “Two Broke Girls” star Kat Dennings was slouching all evening at the Emmys?
