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...

Peter Winkler: 5 Things You Never Knew About Dennis Hopper
Huffington Post - over 5 years
From his lonely childhood in Kansas to his drug-fueled days and nights in Hollywood, Dennis Hopper's amazing life was a roller-coaster series of triumphs and failures. Here are five revelations about Hopper that provide a glimpse into his turbulent life and character. Excerpted from Dennis Hopper: The Wild Ride of a Hollywood Rebel by Peter L. Winkler, published by Barricade Books. 1. Dennis Hopper hated his parents. After crashing a Hollywood party one evening, Hopper told writer Gwen Davis, "I come from Kansas, which is nowhere. And I hate my parents, who are no one." "When I moved to San Diego, I told my parents I wanted to take acting lessons, and they were horrified at the idea," he later said. "I didn't love either one of them, very honestly. They weren't bad -- like, this isn't a monster story -- but I just felt out of place. They thought I should be a doctor or a lawyer or an engineer, and that being an actor was a life of becoming a bum -- and this was not ...

Oakton Patch - almost 6 years
Though the Flint Hill Huskies suffered a 16-2 loss to St. Stephens/St. Agnes in the Independent School League Tournament semifinal Sunday, their season continues with their qualification into the Virginia Independent Schools Athletic Association Tournament.

guyism - almost 6 years
Last week we took a look at one of the most prolific celebrity womanizers in Leonardo DiCaprio. This week we continue our series with a man who has allegedly hooked up with at least as many famous women as Leo: Jack Nicholson.

Jack also gets points for scoring with women many, many years younger than him (noted below). NOTE: In the interest of brevity, we’ll just list all his ladies up to his longest romance: Anjelica Huston. It’s also been reported that Jack has nailed over 2,000 women, but today we’re just going to focus on the famous ones. Previous hookup histories on Guyism.
