Uh, awkward? After Felicity Huffman pleaded responsible for her position within the school admissions scandal, she and William H. Macy proudly attended daughter Sophia Grace’s highschool commencement.
Felicity Huffman, 56, wasn’t going to let her involvement in “Operation Varsity Blues,” aka the 2019 nationwide school admissions bribery scandal, cease her from watching her daughter graduate. She and husband William H. Macy, 69, attended daughter Sophia Grace’s highschool commencement on June 10 at The Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. During the ceremony, Sophia, 18, carried out a ten-minute piece alongside along with her fellow LA County High School for the Arts college students, based on Daily Mail. After gathering her highschool diploma, Sophia – in a floral summer time gown – joined her household and so they left through the loading dock to seemingly keep away from coping with the general public or media.
This look comes weeks after Felicity agreed to plead responsible to paying $15,000 as a part of a scheme to spice up Sophia’s SAT scores. “I am in full acceptance of my guilt, and with deep regret and shame over what I have done, I accept full responsibility for my actions and will accept the consequences that stem from those actions,” the Desperate Housewives mentioned in a press release on April 8. “I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues, and the educational community…My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my misguided and profoundly wrong way, I have betrayed her.”
Before attending Sophia’s commencement, Felicity and her husband watched their daughter in her highschool’s manufacturing of Spring Awakening. While attending the efficiency, college students saved on coming as much as them and “you could tell Felicity wanted to be left alone,” an eyewitness instructed HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “They seemed proud of her daughter as they beamed in the front row as she performed, but it’s kind of obvious something is weighing heavily on Felicity’s mind. She wasn’t her usual, chipper self, and it was clear William was protecting her even though everyone was respectful.”
Felicity continues to await sentencing for her position within the scandal. As a part of her plea settlement, prosecutors are going to advocate that she get 12 months of supervised launch, pay a superb/penalty of $20ok, and pay any further restitution. However, that’s only a suggestion. She may nonetheless wind up behind bars. Felicity was one in all two high-profile names talked about within the sting operation. Fuller House star Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, have been accused of paying $500,000 to fraudulently get their daughters accepted into USC as a part of the rowing workforce.
