(Newser) – Mackenzie Phillips is finally happy, and she’s displaying her inner peace outwardly—with a new $50,000 face.

Phillips also discussed her incest claim and the “curse” of the child star: "There are a bunch of us who have had addiction problems,” she says. As for her half-sister Chynna Phillips, who recently spent a weekend in rehab, she had little to say: “I would stop short of saying that this is why Chynna ended up in rehab for anxiety. I love Chynna. And I support her recovery as she supports mine.”
