However, she was eventually fired from the show in 1980 because of drug and alcohol abuse. In her 2009 autobiography "High on Arrival," she claimed she had a decade-long incestuous relationship with her father, John Phillips of The Mamas & the Papas, who had also got her addicted to cocaine. She appeared on the third season of "Celebrity Rehab" in 2010. She was a regular on the 1999-2001 Disney Channel sci-fi series "So Weird" and has had cameo roles in TV shows like "Cold Case," "Criminal Minds" and "Hot in Cleveland."
