LOS ANGELES, Dec 2, (Agencies): In a groundbreaking move, Felicity Huffman is finally speaking out about her involvement in the notorious college admissions scandal, providing insight into the circumstances that led her to make the controversial decision.

The Oscar-nominated actress found herself among a group of high-profile individuals implicated in the scandal known as “Operation Varsity Blues,” which exposed a criminal conspiracy involving bribery, cheating, and other fraudulent methods employed by affluent parents to secure university admissions for their children in prestigious institutions like Yale, USC, and Georgetown.

During an interview, Huffman revealed that her actions were not driven by a desire to cheat the system but rather by placing trust in a highly recommended college counselor, William “Rick” Singer. Huffman disclosed that she collaborated with Singer for a year, relying on his expertise and recommendations for her daughter’s college applications. However, as Singer presented the illegal scheme, Huffman felt compelled to participate, believing it was the only option to secure her daughter’s future.

“After a year, he started to say your daughter is not going to get into any of the colleges that she wants to,” Huffman explained. “And I believed him. And so when he slowly started to present the criminal scheme, it seems like – and I know this seems crazy at the time – but that was my only option to give my daughter a future,” she said. “And I know hindsight is 20/20, but it felt like I would be a bad mother if I didn’t do it. So – I did it.”

Huffman continued, addressing the misconception that she intentionally sought to cheat the system, clarifying that her motivation was to provide her daughter with a chance at a future, even if it meant breaking the law. The 60-year-old Desperate Housewives actress, who did not inform her and William H. Macy’s daughter, Sophia, about the scheme, recounted moments of doubt as she drove her child to the falsified SAT exam.
