Mackenzie Phillips will not be dressing as a sad little jailbird for Halloween this year. That’s because a judge ordered her into an 18-month drug deferment program after she pleaded guilty for being a failed drug mule.
Julie Cooper was arrested in August at LAX after she was caught by airport security trying to smuggle balloons of coke and heroin in her pant leg. Maria Full of Grace she ain’t!
The judge told her in court today that once she completes the program, he’ll throw out her plea and the entire incident will disappear from her record. She told the court, “I want to thank the Los Angeles Police Department and the Airport Police for stopping me — they saved my life.” Mackenzie went on to say, “And party at my house! I have the party favors, you bring the hooch!” No…
Mackenzie is just in Los Angeles for a quick minute, because she’s currently seeking treatment at a rehab facility in Louisiana. This is her 10th time in the tank. You know what they don’t say, the tenth time’s a charm!
TMZ also reports that the judge thought she was on “Diff’rent Strokes.” She corrected him and said she was actually on “One Day at a Time.” Mackenzie wasted a perfectly good “Watcha talkin’ ’bout Willis” moment!!
