Felicity Huffman's 'Desperate Housewives' Co-Star Alfre Woodard Supports Her during Prison Time

Felicity Huffman‘s former "Desperate Housewives" costar Alfre Woodard vows her unconditional support to the incarcerated star.

Many were shocked by Felicity Huffman‘s involvement in the college admissions scandal, and even more, rushed to judge her.

But the saying goes, that when the going gets tough, your true friends don't get going, and Felicity's former "Desperate Housewives" costar Alfre Woodard has proved she's a true friend.

Felicity was sentenced to 14 days in federal prison, a $30,000 fine, 250 hours of community service and a year of supervised release.

ALFRE WOODWARD EXPRESSES HER SUPPORT AT HER NEW SHOW'S PREMIERE

Alfre Woodard took the opportunity to express her support for Felicity at the red carpet premiere of her new TV show on Apple TV+ "See," in which she costars with Jason Momoa.

Felicity is currently imprisoned for paying an admissions consultant to have a proctor boost her daughter's SAT scores. But for Alfre, that is secondary. She said:

“She’s my friend, I love her. I always support her. We’re all doing the best we can, we’re making it up as we go. And, you know, that’s what friends do. You keep your hand reached out.”

FELICITY HUFFMAN SERVING 14 DAYS IN FEDERAL PRISON

It's unlikely that Alfre will have an opportunity to visit Felicity in prison since the actress was condemned to serve a mere 14 days behind bars, which many considered preferential treatment.

FROM GLAMOROUS HAUTE COUTURE TO PRISON GREENS

Felicity was photographed wearing the correctional facility's green prison jumpsuit, a far cry from the glamorous wardrobe we got used to seeing her in "Desperate Housewives. Her friend Alfre wouldn't have recognized her.

FELICITY HUFFMAN IN FEDERAL PRISON

Felicity was sentenced to 14 days in federal prison, a $30,000 fine, 250 hours of community service and a year of supervised release. 

She will be confined to the low-security FCI Dublin for 13 more days, and she has already received visits from her family.

Felicity's family is allowed to visit her on Saturdays and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

FELICITY HUFFMAN IS GETTING PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT

It seems as if being famous brings more perks than we imagined. It doesn't just guarantee light prison sentences, it gives you preferential treatment in federal prison.

People were shocked to discover that Felicity Huffman has been allowed visitors from day one of her incarcerations at the FCI Dublin.

Regular inmates have to wait 90 days to earn the privilege of seeing their families and go through a rigorous screening process.

It looks like Felicity is even allowed out of the restricted area and onto the parking lot to meet her husband and daughters - which is strictly forbidden to other inmates.
