Eva Longoria Says She Was 'Bullied' By A Desperate Housewives Co-Worker

Don’t buy Felicity Huffman’s pathetic excuses

Felicity Huffman repeatedly went to bat for "Desperate Housewives" costar Eva Longoria when they worked on the hit show, helping the younger actress get a raise and warning a bully on the set to quit tormenting her, Longoria wrote in her heartfelt letter to Huffman's sentencing judge.

Felicity was certainly one of 51 folks indicted within the investigation - nickname Operation Varsity Blues - which was publicly reported on in March.

"The court should sentence Huffman to a term of one month of incarceration, followed by 12 months of supervised release and a fine of $20,000", prosecutors wrote in their sentencing memo, filed Friday.

Underneath federal sentencing tips, prosecutors might have sought as much as six months of jail time. In the three-page missive, she took responsibility for her actions and outlined the circumstances that led to her arrest. "Felicity could feel that I was riddled with anxiety even though I never complained or mentioned the abuse to anyone", Longoria writes in the letter, which has been obtained by NBC News.

She acknowledged that the bigger picture didn't matter because she could have said "no" to cheating on SATs and told the judge she repeatedly asked herself why she did what she did.

"I find Motherhood bewildering".

Co-host Sunny Hostin acknowledged, "Felicity Huffman, the prosecutors are recommending one month and he or she's asserting that that's too phenomenal time".

Longoria and Huffman starred on ABC's Desperate Housewives from 2004 to 2012.

Reached for comment, a spokesperson for Juul said the company is reviewing the letter and plans to "fully cooperate". The investigation has widened into 127 reports of seizures linked to various types of e-cigarettes.

"I know I would not have survived those 10 years if it wasn't for the friendship of Felicity", she said. She reportedly also considered going through the process a second time for her remaining daughter, Georgia, but did not go through with it. Later, Huffman says that Singer warned her that if her daughter, who has a learning disability, didn't "dramatically" improve her math scores, "none of the colleges she was interested in would even consider her auditions". This was a measure he did for many of his students, Huffman wrote he told her.

"As warped as this sounds now, I honestly began to feel that maybe I would be a bad mother if I didn't do what Mr. Singer was suggesting", Huffman mewled in her letter.

After weeks of indecision, the actor agreed to falsify Sophia's SAT scores.

As the actress continued, she expressed the "utter shame" she felt after the decision because she "knew it wasn't right".

"In my desperation to be a good mother I talked myself into believing that all I was doing was giving my daughter a fair shot", Huffman wrote.

"I see the irony in that assertion now simply because what I have completed is the reverse of truthful". After the applause died down, McCain was able to finish her sentence. While the actress' attorneys agree on a year of probation and $20,000 fine, they're arguing for community service instead of jail time.

Apparently, Huffman became a friend to Eva Longoria on the set from the start, and helped her with everything from their first table read (where the whole cast and numerous creatives get together to read the script for the first time), to early award show appearances, Longoria's charity work and even later contract negotiations.

Huffman is perhaps the most famous defendant in a wide-ranging college-entrance scandal, involving dozens of well-heeled folks charged with scamming and paying their kids' way into prestigious institutions of higher education, schemes that could help degrade the value of a university diploma into worthlessness.
