More often than not, the adage “crime doesn’t pay” is pretty accurate.

According to People , sources close to actress Felicity Huffman and her husband, William H. Macy, have confirmed that the couple’s daughter has been accepted into a prestigious university.

Felicity Huffman still contrite after college admission controversy
Felicity Huffman’s succinct and contrite tone in response to her daughter’s good news is in line with the apology tactic she has taken since her relationship with Rick Singer was revealed in 2019. Unlike her fellow celebrity Lori Loughlin, who , along with her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli, is scheduled for court in October 2020 after filing declarations of “innocence” against the charges against them (via Page Six ) – Huffman has shown deep remorse for their actions after the debacle.
“I am ashamed of the pain I have caused my daughter, my family, my friends, my colleagues and the educational community,” Huffman wrote in an April 2019 statement obtained by People.
Huffman, who also extended her apology to “students who work hard every day to get into college, and their parents who make huge sacrifices to support their children,” emphasized that Sophia had no idea of her mother’s involvement with the Singer scam.
“My daughter knew absolutely nothing about my actions, and in my wrong and deeply wrong way, I have betrayed her,” Huffman wrote at the time. “This transgression towards her and the public will carry her for the rest of my life. My desire to help my daughter is no excuse for breaking the law or dishonoring ».
Regardless of her mother’s actions, it certainly seems that Sophia Macy has managed to land on her feet.
