I see what you did there.

Could be worse...she could be a scientologist like Bijou.

Great...now I've got Mommy, Where's Daddy? by The Chili Peppers stuck in my head.

Brings new meaning to "who's your daddy", etc.

I threw up, a lot.

Sick.

And what the hell is going on with her batshit brother? What does that have to do with ANYTHING?

So, no one has read this biography yet? I mean, I would have thought that the appropriate time to respond would be after having the fullest grasp of the story.

This is exactly what is wrong with pandering to the lowest common denominator, no? Throw out some titillating bait and let the mob descend in an orgy of judgment and smartass remarks.

Jesus, this is maybe one of those times when no matter what the reason, it's better just to hold back if you can't summon up the slightest bit of compassion or civility.

Stephen said...

6 people does not an orgy make. A gangbang, certainly.

Civility?

Sir or madam, you must be new to this blog.

I don't plan on reading the biography. I just seems too painful and I don't want to invade her privacy... even though she's handing it out. If it's cathartic for her to write about what happened then good for her.

Chez said...

Shannon, while your desire for civility and prudence is admirable, remember that it was actually Phillips herself who dropped these soundbites to sell books.

Poor thing, the hippie colony, drugs, raped by daddy AND child actor. She never had a chance.

Praise the Lord said...

lol, Shannon said "titillating." Hot!

oskar said...

That's assuming any of it is true.
None of these allegations can be proven & since her father is dead, he can't defend himself.

Oprah feeds on these kinds of stories.

ShannonfromSaskatoon said...

True. Chez. But have you ever seen a woman so totally fucking beat?

Books and money and fame can't fix that kind of suffering.

Just sayin'

I read some of this mess the other day. And I remember her mentioning her father wanting to run away with her to Fiji because "it's not looked down upon there."
And the ONLY THING I've been able to think since is:
What the fuck is wrong with Fiji?

And also...is it really okay in Fiji or was he just making that up? I have been racking my brain and have yet to come upon a culture totally cool with the dad-daughter having satan's sex thing.
Ever.

Ew.

Peach,

Near as I can tell from a quick Google search, Fiji does indeed HAVE felony laws against incest.

I, too, am unfamiliar with any cultures, currently or historically speaking, that have ever given the nod to parental-child incest. A few seem to have either tolerated or given very specific exceptions to sibling sex being a crime, but the daddy/mommy-child barrier is fairly universally solid to the best of my knowledge.
