Felicity Huffman Shuts Down Social Media Accounts And Parenting Website What the Flicka? Amid College Bribery Scandal
Felicity Huffman has deleted all of her social media accounts and shut down her parenting website What the Flicka? amid her involvement in the college bribery scandal.
The Desperate Housewives alum started the website in 2012. Huffman described it to Mashable as a place for women and mothers to go "gather, make mistakes, say they're losing their mind, trade tips and offer advice to one another." Along with several blog posts that were related to advice on parenting, food, pregnancy, and relationships, the website also included a section for mommy-themed merchandise.
However, in the wake of her participation in Operation Varsity Blues , it appears the 56-year-old actress has reevaluated whether or not she was equipped to give parenting advice. The website and online store both are no longer active. Huffman has not yet publicly commented on her involvement in the scandal. She has gone to great lengths to stay quiet and keep the haters at bay.
Along with shutting down What the Flicka? the mother of two has also got rid of all of her social media accounts. When doing a search for Huffman on Instagram or Twitter, nothing comes back. There are a couple of private accounts, but they are not verified as the actresses. Fans know she mostly used her social media presence to promote her website, as well as for inspirational quotes. Her parenting website’s YouTube channel is also now non-existent.
It has been less than a week since Felicity Huffman was arrested for paying $15,000 to have a protector give her daughter Sofia extra time to take her SAT's, as well as to change some answer ensuring her score was high. The 18-year-old raised her score 400 points from her PSAT to her next test.
The former American Crime star is out on bail, but the fallout is only just beginning. Huffman and several others, including actress Lori Loughlin, are being sued by several parties. One woman has filed a $500 billion lawsuit because schools involved in the scandal turned down her son with a 4.2 GPA.
Huffman is reportedly due back in court at the end of the month. As of now, her husband William H. Macy has not been charged, but he allegedly attended a meeting with his wife to learn about the scheme.
Are you surprised that the actress has shut down her parenting site and social media? She is trying to keep a low profile.
