Felicity Huffman is back at it after serving her sentence in jail for her part in the 2019 college admissions scandal, and her daughters are succeeding as college students.


"Desperate Housewives" star Felicity Huffman is facing life head-on after serving her full prison sentence for her part in the college admissions scandal that came to light in 2019.

Huffman is returning to her career, already landing a role on a new ABC comedy, and her daughters are making the most of their student lives.

Huffman is returning to the screen after spending 13 days in prison coupled with a supervised release that was stretched over a year. An inside source revealed how the actress and her family is doing after finishing her time behind bars, saying:

"Felicity’s life is back to normal. Both her daughters are thriving in college... and she has a big project in the works."


Huffman's daughters, who she shares with William H Macy, are both on the East Coast. Her oldest child, Sophia Macy, is a student at Carnegie Mellon University, and her youngest daughter, Georgia Macy, attends Vassar College.



58-year-old Huffman placed her oldest daughter in the middle of an FBI investigation when she paid Rick Singer, an admissions consultant, $15,000 to have the answers on Sophia's SATs changed after she wrote the test.

Huffman has also recently landed a role on a new ABC comedy and is to be seen on the show's pilot episode.

The "Desperate Housewives" star pleaded guilty to the charges laid against her, and the mother claimed that her daughter was completely unaware of what she was doing.



Huffman's oldest daughter is showing strong signs of wanting to follow in her mother's acting footsteps and has grabbed hold of every opportunity that has come her way.

Sophia has kickstarted her acting career by landing a role in season two of "The Twilight Zone." The 19-year-old took to Instagram to share the exciting news, saying:

"Been wanting to talk about this for a MINUTE! I’m so so grateful @abbiehern_ I love you and I love acting with you ?? "



Sophia isn't the only family member that has been invited to join a show as Huffman has also recently landed a role on a new ABC comedy and is to be seen on the show's pilot episode.

The new comedy will be concerned with the life of the owner of a Minor League Baseball team called the Sacramento River Cats, with the award-winning Huffman taking on the lead.

Comedy is a new direction for Huffman, who is usually seen in more serious roles, such as Lynette from "Desperate Housewives" and Linda Fairstein in "When They See Us Now."

Having served her time and taken responsibility for her thoughtless actions, Huffman seems to be on the rise rebuilding her career and working on restoring her relationships.
