Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman is currently serving her prison sentence for her role in the college admissions scandal. The actress was originally sentenced to 14 days in prison but will only end up serving 13 days due to the fact that she already spent time behind bars after her initial arrest.
The actress will be released on October 27 and will get to go back to her normal life, at least for the most part. She will still be required to serve a year of probation and she will also be required to complete 250 hours of public service. Nevertheless, once Felicity gets prison time out of the way, the worst will be over.
Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss should know. She once did time in the same California prison in which Huffman is serving time and Heidi has opened up about what the food at the facility is like, according to Daily News.
It’s no surprise to anyone that prison food isn’t exactly high quality cuisine, but Fleiss claims the food at the Dublin prison is particularly gross. It certainly won’t be the type of meals to which Huffman is likely accustomed. Fleiss says that Huffman is lucky she won’t have to endure the food for long due to her light prison sentence. She said the actress can look at the food as being a way to lose weight.
“It was awful, like gross fried chicken. I think some of the packaged food that came in said ‘Desert Storm’ on it. But (Huffman) is only there for 14 days. Anyone can handle that. It’s just like a diet,” she said.
Despite the fact that this prison has a reputation for being an easy place to endure, Fleiss says that there is really nothing comfortable about it.
“There’s nothing cushy about it. It’s horrible. It’s so awful. You sleep on horrible bunk beds. They’re just metal with a mattress about 30 years old. You hear everyone coughing and sneezing all night. And the bathrooms are nasty. There’s almost no water pressure.”
Fleiss spent 20 months at the Dublin prison after being convicted of organizing her own prostitution ring.

As The Inquisitr previously reported, Huffman pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 to have her daughter’s SAT exam responses corrected so she would score higher on the test and have a better chance at getting into the college of her dreams. Her daughter had no knowledge of what had been going on behind the scenes to allow her an unfair advantage.
Huffman showed remorse both publicly and privately for her actions and likely received a lesser sentence because of the way she took responsibility for the crime.
