Bijou Phillips skipped on down to jail yesterday to bail out her half-sister, Mackenzie Phillips. Mackenzie is in jail on $10,000 bond because she tried to get heroin and coke past security at LAX. Mackenzie turned Bijou’s ass down, saying she didn’t have any money to pay her back and just wants to sit in jail.
Mackenzie knows what’s up. If she allows Bijou, a Scientologist, to bail her ass out, she’ll go straight to Tommy Girl’s detox center. In three months, she’ll be wearing pegged jeans and bottle-feeding Leah Remini’s 4-year-old daughter. What’s worse? Sitting in jail or listening to Leah Remini speak? You decide.
TMZ has a few more details on Mackenzie’s arrest. While going through security, Mackenzie set off the metal detector. A TSA employee started to pat her down, but Mackenzie became weird and wouldn’t cooperate. They sat her down and that’s when balloons and baggies of the bad shit fell out through her pant leg. Okay, maybe Stepford Katie’s pegged jeans would have come in handy in this case. But this case only! The TSA also found 34 syringes in her bag.
After she was arrested, a police officer performed a strip search and found her arms covered in track marks. She was asked if she had Diabetes and she responded, “No, I am healthy except for my drug problem.” Mackenzie should have used the Tatum O’Neal excuse instead of admitting the drugs were hers. She should’ve said, “Um….I’m researching a part. The movie is called ‘The Tatum O’Neal’ story.”
Here’s more of Bijou and some lady outside the jail yesterday. I think I bought my first joint from the lady Bijou is with. Her name was Bea and she smelled like Hamburger Helper.
UPDATE: Bijou bailed Mackenzie out this afternoon! She’ll be in Tommy Girl’s clutches by dinnertime!
