    Would you tell the world you slept with your dad.

    Who in their right mind goes on national tv and admits to having consensual sex with him. Ok, you want to get something off your chest, go to a therapist. She said that she needed to 'get it out', but I'm quite sure that she could have ''gotten closure'' without going public. She still admits to getting stoned, and for this I think she just needs more drug money, hence this new 'out' book.

    Neither you, I, nor anyone else is in any positions to judge her.
    I can't imagine anything more horrific.
    Whatever makes her feel better.
    I can't say what I'd do, hypothetically, in her situation.
    I can't say what someone in her situation "should" do.
    There is no "should".
    This is an abomination, a travesty, a betrayal of unimaginable proportions.
    There is no protocol for dealing with such a thing.
    If "outing" the situation offers her some measure of relief, then yes, of course she should tell the world.
    Anyone who doesn't want to hear it is free to not buy her book/ watch her interviews.

    Would you tell the world you slept with your dad?
    Why would you sleep with your dad in the first place?

    According to what I read, he gave her drugs on the night before her wedding (she was 19), they both got high and passed out in his bed, and when she woke up he was having sex with her and had been for some time.
    She's had a drug problem since her early teens; the fact that "Papa John" was a heavy drug user is also well-known.
    I'm not entirely sure how this rape led to a long-standing sexual relationship between the two of them, but I suspect that drugs continued to play a role; I suspect, also, that it had a lot to do with power. Love can be tyranny, when you love someone who does not have your best interests at heart, and who wants you to do things that are wrong.

    It was more of a sarcastic, rhetorical-type question, but thanks anyway...

    Well, I figured I'd clear it up anyway.
    "Why would you sleep with your dad" implies she had a choice, when according to her it was rape.
    Why she would continue to sleep with her dad is a valid question, but it's obvious she was and continues to be a profoundly emotionally crippled individual and that her father was a powerful figure, not just in her life but in the lives of most of those around him.

    I don,t keep up with this stuff but is her dad still among the living?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    No, he died a few years ago.
    He was John Phillips of "the mamas and the papas", a 60s band.
    Her siblings are Bijou and Chynna Phillips, both pseudo-celebs of the "Paris Hilton" sort.

    "Would you tell the world you slept with your dad?"

    Maybe in a suicide note.

    Seriously.
