Felicity Huffman is defiled by the college admissions scandal and has become a Hollywood outcast. That’s the surprising conclusion of people and industry specialists who think the former Desperate Housewives star’s slap-on-the-wrist; the 14-day sentence is a perfect case of celebrity justice. Now, it is believed that Hollywood won’t hire Felicity Huffman after her disgraceful act.
Felicity is a virus in this town,” an insider said. “Nobody wants to seem sympathetic to her and no studio wants to experience the reaction of hiring an actress the people think is a spoiled celebrity.”
Felicity Huffman College Scandal
The 56-year-old actress pleaded guilty to paying an admissions fixer to boost up her daughter’s SAT scores. The star has been commanded to pay a $30,000 fine and complete 250 hours of community service.
But her short jail time has opened many the wrong ways.
“There’s been a lot of outrage about her getting away with something that anybody else would have done serious time for,” an insider disclosed. “Everybody believes it’s a perfect example of celebrity justice.”
Experts also stated job proposals for the Emmy winner have dried up.
“Felicity won’t be getting many offers this year or next,” predicted a former Hollywood casting director. “At least not until the scandal dies down.”
Felicity Huffman Prison Time
The star’s lawyer, Martin Murphy, imitated that idea at her sentencing, noting that Huffman faced “significant consequences” due to the controversy, including “losing career opportunities.”
In a related high-profile case, lifestyle expert Martha Stewart spent five months behind bars on charges linked to insider trading in 2004.
But Stewart succeeded to rebound after her release “because she accepted what the people regarded as a fair amount of time,” a reference said, revealing, “People are a lot more outraged at Felicity! I don’t think she can bounce back as quickly or as well.”
Previously, Huffman was mocked at this year’s Emmy Awards, when commentator Thomas Lennon said “The producers have asked me to give a special shout out to any of our previous lead actress winners who are watching tonight from prison. Hopefully, those two weeks are going to fly by. Keep your chin up!”
The star also won an Emmy for her performance in Desperate Housewives at the peak of her career in 2005.
