Felicity Huffman Adresses College Entrance Scandal After Pleading Guilty: ‘I’m Ashamed Of Pain I Caused My Daughter’
After pleading guilty in her massive college entrance fraud case, Desperate Housewives actress, Felicity Huffman opened up about the whole thing for the first time. Here’s what she had to say!
Huffman broke her silence on the drama and made it very clear that she accepts ‘full responsibility’ for what she'd done.
In an official statement the star released earlier today, she said: 'I'm in full acceptance of my guilt, and with regret and shame over what I've done, I accept the full responsibility for my actions and I will accept all of the consequences that stem from those actions.’
Felicity went on to say that what causes her the most regret and shame is the hurt her daughter has been feeling because of her.
But of course, she is not the only one affected by the scandal, something the actress acknowledged by saying that ‘I am ashamed of the pain that I have caused my daughter, family, friends, colleagues and the educational community. I want to apologize to them and to all the students who work hard every single day to get into college, as well as to their parents who make immense sacrifices to support their children and do so honestly.’
As for whether or not her daughter was aware of the illegal way in which she managed to get into college, Felicity insisted that she knew nothing about it, which makes her feel even more like she’d ‘betrayed’ her.
She concluded her statement by expressing a deep regret that will stay with her forever: ‘This transgression toward her and the public I'll carry for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is not an excuse to break the law or engage in dishonesty.’
