Question How well known were Mackenzie Phillips's "issues" at the time

I mean, the internet didn't exist yet when One Day at a Time was originally airing. So I wonder how much the general public knew about what was going on in her personal life. Did most viewers wonder why Mackenzie kept disappearing and reappearing on the series? I think that viewers only heard bits and pieces about what was really going on and that she had a major substance abuse problem.

Do you know about tabloid magazines?

You couldn't help but notice the crazy headlines when standing in-line at your grocery store checkout line.

Inquiring minds want to know!

It was well publicized that she was failing to show up for the taping of episodes.

Yeah! And the TV viewers could really see how she was really starting to look bad! She was getting much too thin and sickly looking !!!

Does anybody think that it was a tad harsh with how they pretty much made Julie a deadbeat mom at the end? It was like the producers wanted to just stick it to Mackenzie and her issues by taking one final dump on her character.

It was a little harsh, but all the producers wanted was a nice final season to wrap things up and she went and screwed things up.

It's no secret (Val even mentions it in her first book) they were talking about a spin-off with her and Mac when Mac returned,but it never happened - clearly the producers and the network were worried about the risk if Mac relapsed - and she did in the end.

The whole "Two Couples Sharing a House" is so obvious what was salvaged from the spin-off concept. The entire 9th Season plays like two separate interconnected series - the "couples" and their story-lines and then Ann & Sam.
