The daughter of Mamas and the Papas icon John Phillips has had a tremendously tumultuous life, and the first signs of trouble appeared on the set of her 1977 sitcom,
One Day at a Time. During the third season, Phillips, the star of the show, began appearing late, forgetting her lines, and acting incoherently. Thanks to her haggard appearance, she needed to be shot with specific lighting, extra makeup, and creative camera angles. Producers gave her a six-week hiatus to get her act together, to no avail (she said she went to the dentist and got a haircut instead of going to rehab). She resigned from the show under pressure from the producers in 1980, was invited back in 1981, and written off for good in 1982.
