Nicollette Sheridan Shames Former ‘Desperate Housewives’ Costar Felicity Huffman Over ‘Disgraceful’ College Bribery Scandal!
Nicollette Sheridan thinks Felicity Huffman should be ashamed of herself!
The 55-year-old actress opened up to Access in an interview published Monday to promote her new role in Dynasty, and she had some harsh words for her former Desperate Housewives costar regarding her alleged involvement in the nationwide college bribery scandal.
Although she gave her former colleague the slightest bit of due process, Sheridan didn’t shy away from scolding Huffman over her alleged actions, explaining:
“We don’t know the facts. But we could be extremely disturbed by the entitlement, the power, the money that could take away from those less privileged and that to me is disgraceful.”
As we reported, Huffman was one of the 50 individuals who were charged in an alleged conspiracy to defraud and undermine student admissions at prestigious schools including Georgetown University, Stanford University, UCLA, the University of San Diego, USC, University of Texas, Wake Forest, and Yale.
Huffman was personally accused of paying $15K to have someone correct her daughter’s SAT scores at the test taking center. Ironically, her Desperate Housewives character did something similar in an episode of the dramedy series.
Sheridan went on to say only time would tell where Huffman “really stands” in terms of her alleged involvement in the scheme. But, as you can tell from her interview (below), Edie is VERY disappointed in Lynette!
This national controversy comes at an opportune time for Sheridan, who was dealing with her own scandal just weeks ago — one involving less Desperate Housewives and more Real Housewives… of Beverly Hills, to be exact.
As we reported, RHOBH star Lisa Rinna accused Sheridan of cheating on her husband Harry Hamlin — who has been married to Rinna since 1997 — with Michael Bolton while the two were married from 1991 to 1992.
After fans couldn’t stop lapping up the tea, Sheridan dragged herself into the drama on Twitter, claiming that Rinna was spewing out “FAKE NEWS” about her one-year marriage to Hamlin. Hamlin subsequently chimed in on social media as well, and the whole thing turned into one big unresolved mess.
So, we bet Sheridan is ELATED to have an even juicer scandal to talk about while promoting her role on Dynasty!
Huffman, meanwhile, deleted her social media accounts in the wake of her arrest last week. As we reported, several federal officers reportedly showed up to her Hollywood Hills home with guns drawn; the actress and her family were reportedly asleep when the officers arrived.
At her court appearance, the judge released her on a $250K signature bond. Her next court date is set for March 29 in Boston.
While her husband William H. Macy was not indicted, charging docs state that the couple agreed to the scheme to help their oldest child Sofia, 18, get into college.
It’s all so very Desperate Housewives!
