Felicity Huffman's Youngest Daughter Reveals Her College Plans After Varsity Blues Scandal Landed Her Mom In Prison
Less than two months after Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman served 11 days in prison for her role in the Operation Varsity Blues College Admission Scandal, her youngest daughter Georgia Macy has revealed her college plans. The 17-year-old daughter of Huffman and Shameless star William H. Macy updated her Instagram bio this week to let her fans know that she is part of Vassar College’s class of 2024.
According to Us Weekly , Georgia also posted the private liberal arts school’s logo on her Instagram Story, but later deleted the image.
Getting into Vassar is not an easy task, according to the school’s website. Their stats from March 2019 show that less than 25 percent of applications are accepted, with 8,961 students applying to the school and only 2,098 were admitted. The number of California students is incredibly small, with only 277 coming from the Golden State.
Huffman ended up with a two-week prison sentence in October when she pleaded guilty to fraud charges after she paid $15,000 to a fake charity - via college admissions consultant William “Rick” Singer - to have her oldest daughter Sophia’s SAT scores altered so she could gain admission into an elite university.
Before Huffman received her sentence, she wrote a letter to the judge and asked for leniency. She explained that she almost did the same thing for Georgia, but she “finally came to her senses and told Mr. Singer to stop the process.”
Sophia Macy graduated from the Los Angeles High School of the Arts back in June, but she has not revealed her college plans in the wake of her mom’s scandal.
Before she served her prison sentence, Huffman told Us Weekly that she broke the law and admitted she was guilty of committing a crime. She said there were no excuses or justifications for her actions, and she apologized to her daughter, her husband, and the rest of her family.
“And I especially want to apologize to the students who work hard every day to get into college, and to their parents who make tremendous sacrifices supporting their children,” said Huffman.
One of Huffman’s co-defendants, Fuller House star Lori Loughlin, has continued to plead not guilty to fraud and bribery charges after she allegedly dropped $500,000 to get her two daughters into the University of Southern California as crew recruits, even though they didn’t play the sport.
Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli are facing decades in prison if they are found guilty.
