Felicity Huffman has found herself an interesting friend in R&B Crooner/Chrissy Teigen‘s husband–John Legend. After Felicity Huffman was treated to the rich-white-woman-justice special: AKA a slap on the wrist for financial crimes–she’d been targeted by the internet for not getting punished enough. Well, John Legend is telling us to lay off, and he has his reasons. John doesn’t only think Felicity should’ve gotten less time, he thinks everyone should get less time.
Tanya McDowell is the black mother who was convicted of larceny charges related to sending her kid to the wrong school district, while they were homeless, and was sentenced to 5 years. Well, if Tonya wanted to avoid that sentence she should’ve been born a famous white millionaire actress named Felicity Huffman, because Felicity will spend no more than two weeks in the clink for using her sofa change ($15,000) to buy her daughter a better SAT score to get into a fancier college.
When we last left Felicity Huffman, it was being reported that federal prosecutors wanted to see her do one month in prison as punishment for her role in the College Admissions Scandal. Felicity was accused of committing mail fraud and honest services fraud when she gave $15,000 to have Rick Singer hook her up with a proctor that would fix her daughter’s SAT scores, thus securing her admission into an elite school. Felicity pleaded guilty back in May, and it was said she was looking at 4 to 10 months on the inside. Then it dropped to one month, but Felicity still wants it dropped to 0 minutes. Sources tell TMZ says that Felicity and her lawyers have two arguments up their sleeves.
It’s been four months since Felicity Huffman decided that the best way to keep from landing herself a long-running role in Cell Block C Playhouse’s production of Desperate Cellmates is to cop a plea and admit guilt, which is what she did in May. Felicity pleaded guilty to committing mail fraud and honest services fraud by paying $15,000 to have a proctor correct the answers on her daughter’s SAT test in hopes of getting into a “good” college. Sentencing time is coming up, and it was reported that prosecutors were going to recommend 4 to 10 months in prison, but I guess their asses are Sports Night fans, because they’ve recommended only a month. Lori Loughlin is probably changing her mind about regretting her decision to not take a plea deal, because I mean, a whole entire month under fluorescent lighting and without Frette sheets?! She’d literally die.
Because she apparently only has one good black blazer to her name, Felicity Huffman made the decision to avoid a trial and, as expected, pleaded guilty for her role in Operation Varsity Blues this morning in Boston. According to the Associated Press, Felicity arrived in court escorted by her brother Moore Huffman Jr., instead of her husband William H. Macy (who was not charged with any crime other than impersonating an old west sheriff), which is a shame because you can never have enough clowns at a 3-ring circus, which is exactly what this scandal has become.
Lori Loughlin Was “Fixated” On Getting Daughters Into USC, And Is Freaking Out At Additional Charges
Aunt Becks really over-played her hand, didn’t she? Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli are probably screwed.. Like, they were screwed before, because getting sued for billions of dollars and getting charged with federal crimes never means anything but screwed. But they could have gotten it a little easier. Look at Felicity Huffman! While some of the rich parents involved in the Operation Varsity Blues scam pled guilty and are looking at a few months in minimum-security, rich-white-people-jail and will probably just get probation–there were some holdouts. Among the holdouts were Lori and Mossimo. These two knuckleheads thought that prosecutors were joking when they said if people didn’t cop a plea they would add charges. Well surprise, bitch: you got more charges. Now Lori is freaking the fuck out and it. Is. Delicious.
