Felicity Huffman Recovering From College Cheating Scandal

Eva Longoria told “Entertainment Tonight” that she believes her “Desperate Housewives” co-star, Felicity Huffman, has been “humbled” by the college admissions cheating scandal. Huffman pleaded guilty to bribing college admissions officers and cheating on standardized tests in order to get her daughters into prestigious universities.

“I think she has a heart that is bigger than the sun and that’s the Felicity I know and that’s the woman I choose to support and love,” Longoria said. “She was humbled by what happened and I think she did handle it with as much grace as she could in that situation.”

Longoria said she believes Huffman took responsibility for her role in the scandal, unlike other defendants, who pleaded not guilty. Patricia Arquette, Huffman’s co-star in “Otherhood,” agreed with Longoria, saying Huffman handled it like a “grown-up person.”

“I mean I haven’t spoken to her but I feel that she’s sincerely truly sorry and feels she made a humongous mistake and I think she dealt with it the best way that you can deal with it,” Arquette said. “But I know that she’s probably carrying a lot of shame and guilt and all of that stuff so that’s all I could really do is just leave her a message and say you know I think you’ve handled this the best you could and I know that you feel terrible about this and you know I’m thinking about you.”
