Felicity Huffman Talks After 4 Years, Admits Admissions Oopsie

So, you all remember the whole college admissions scandal that rocked Hollywood a few years back, right? Well, our favorite Desperate Housewives actress, Felicity Huffman, is finally speaking out about her involvement in the whole mess.

Let’s take a trip down memory lane to 2019 when Felicity served 11 days in prison and paid a hefty $30,000 fine for shelling out $15,000 to the infamous Rick Singer to have her daughter’s SAT scores doctored. Yeah, you heard that right, she was basically trying to outsmart the system. But hey, we’ve all been tempted to cheat on a test at some point, right?

It didn’t end just there – Felicity also completed 250 hours of community service and was on supervised release for a whole year. Talk about paying the price for a little boost on the SATs.

But wait for it… she finally opened up about the whole debacle in an interview with ABC-7 Eyewitness News recently. And trust me, it’s as juicy as it sounds.

During the interview, Felicity gave us some insight into what led her to commit the crime. She talked about how she trusted this college counselor named Rick Singer, who recommended programs and tutors for her daughter. But then he dropped the bomb that her daughter wasn’t going to get into the colleges she wanted. Ah, the drama!

According to Felicity, Singer slowly started to present the criminal scheme and she felt like it was her only option to secure her daughter’s future. Okay, is it just me or does this sound like something straight out of a soap opera?

But here’s the real kicker – Felicity didn’t even tell her daughter about the whole scheme! Can you imagine keeping something like that from your own flesh and blood? She even admitted that she regretted not turning the car around on the way to the exam. I mean, who wouldn’t be tempted to turn the car around for some ice cream and avoid the whole mess, right?

And let’s not forget about the mastermind behind it all, Rick Singer. He finally got what was coming to him with a prison sentence earlier this year. Cue the dramatic music.

Anyway, if you want to hear the whole scoop straight from Felicity herself, check out the interview below. But make sure to grab some popcorn because it’s a rollercoaster of emotions.
