    Two months after the publication of her memoirs and following the startling claim that she had an incestuous relationship with her father, John Phillips, Mackenzie Phillips told Access Hollywood's Nancy O'Dell that she won't be home for the holidays.

    "I've been uninvited to the family Thanksgiving," she said, explaining that her claims have caused a rift between her and her family.

    "I can't make them come back. They have to come back on their own," she said.

    Stepmother Michelle Phillips has been particularly vocal in supporting her former husband, previously stating, "If these accusations were going to be made, they should have been made while John was alive."

    "It's just so strange that she thinks that I should have done it while he was alive," Mackenzie told Nancy. "If I did, I'm sure she would have said I should have waited until he was dead. There's never a right time for this family to hear this kind of stuff."

    And while some family members, like half-sister Chynna, still support Mackenzie, others have turned their back.

    "It pains Chynna that I won't be able to be there with them," she said. "I have made attempts [to talk to half-sister Bijou]. She just says, 'I want nothing to do with you.'"

    But Mackenzie said she doesn't hold hard feelings against her family.

    "It's OK, it's OK," she said. "I love Michelle."
