‘Oprah: Where Are They Now?’ Episode Guide (April 9): Mackenzie Phillips; Audra McDonald; Jose Canseco

“Mackenzie Phillips, Broadway and TV Star Audra McDonald & Jose Canseco” (04/09/16) – At 16, Mackenzie Phillips was already headed to the top in Hollywood, a spot she sealed starring in the sitcom “One Day At a Time.”

A constant struggle with drugs and alcohol, which she says were introduced to her at age 10 by her famous dad John Phillips of the Mamas and the Papas, has repeatedly gotten her into trouble. In 2009, she stated in her shocking autobiography “High On Arrival” and later on the “Oprah” Show, that her father had raped her when she was 19, starting a consensual sexual relationship that lasted over 10 years.

Oprah sits down with Mackenzie now, more than five years after the book’s release to talk in depth about Mackenzie’s drug and alcohol abuse and what she has done with her life as a result. Mackenzie also reveals what finally put an end to the affair with her father, and reflects on how the book affected her family relationships, and how she might have done things differently.

Next, Broadway and TV star Audra McDonald has won six Tony Awards, more than any other actor, yet reveals a path to stardom that was anything but smooth. Audra talks candidly about depression and her attempted suicide while attending Julliard, how she nearly left New York before getting her first big role, and what she finds most challenging about acting for television versus Broadway.

Then, Jose Canseco, the Oakland Athletics home run king, checks in on his life today, ten years after he blew the lid off major league baseball in the autobiography in which he declared a history of performance enhancing drug use, and named other players as well.
