Felicity Huffman’s ‘Desperate Housewives’ Character ALSO PAID $15K To Get Her Kids Into School!!
It’s almost poetic??
In a truly laughable incident of life imitating art, Twitter sleuths found out in an early episode of the ABC hit Desperate Housewives, Felicity Huffman‘s character paid to get her twin sons into private school!
What’s even crazier is that it’s down to the same dollar amount of $15K — the exact value Felicity allegedly paid to have someone correct her daughter’s SAT scores so she’d get into a better college. IN REAL LIFE.
We can’t make this S**T up!!
In case you missed it, earlier this week Huffman was charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services fraud after allegedly involving herself with William Rick Singer, who has pled guilty to charges including racketeering conspiracy and obstruction of justice.
Also called out in the same scandal was Full House‘s Aunt Becky AKA Lori Loughlin, who is accused of staging crew photos and athletic records so her daughters would get into the University of Southern California based on invisible sports merit! Her and her husband Mossimo Giannulli reportedly spent $500,000 to do this.
Ok, now back to the TV series.
In Season 1, Episode 5, titled “Come In, Stranger” — Huffman’s character Lynette Scavo and her husband Tom are attempting to get their twin sons into the elite learning institution Barcliff Academy. When the headmaster says the boys’ education levels are a bit average for admittance, Tom and Lynette agree to grease the wheels, and give the school a $15,000 donation!!!
Tom has to sell his boat, but the couple makes it happen for their kids. We do wonder if this is where the actress got her ideas for the college scheme. Desperate Housewives was an award-winning series AND she acted so great on it! HAHAHA.
As we told you, Lori has deleted her social media, while Felicity’s are still live and full of fun mommy tidbits like…
There are so many more, and this will never not be funny!
Life is sometimes not stranger than fiction, y’all! What are your thoughts on the entire scandal?? SOUND OFF in the comments (below) with all your juicy as f**k notes!
