There is finally some good news in the Huffman-Macy family. Felicity Huffman’s youngest daughter, Georgia Macy, has been accepted to Vassar University. The 17-year-old will be heading to the New York-based college in the fall of 2020. Georgia added “Vassar 2024” to her Instagram bio this past week, according to Vanity Fair.
Some speculated that Georgia’s chances of getting into college would be affected by her mother’s infamous involvement in the college admissions scandal. The controversy occurred prior to Georgia’s college application period. Nevertheless, the teen was able to get accepted based on her own merit.
Georgia took a different route than her older sister, Sophia Grace Macy, who is taking a gap year in the wake of the scandal. It was for Sophia Grace that Felicity admitted to paying $15,000 to Rick Singer — the reported mastermind of the scheme — to boost her older daughter’s SAT scores. Sophia Grace, who had hopes of becoming an actress, claims that she was not aware of her mother’s wrongdoing at the time.
Meanwhile, Felicity’s husband, William H. Macy, has openly praised Georgia’s academic excellence.
“My daughter Georgia, she’s interested in politics, political science and pursuing that. She’s in a very academic school and killing it,” said William.
Although Georgia’s older sister was more affected by the scandal, the teen also felt the heat when the news first broke. On the night that Felicity was arrested this past March, FBI agents burst into her family’s home with their guns drawn. As The Inquisitr previously reported, William discussed how traumatized his daughters were from the incident. They have both been in therapy to get over what happened, learning to come to grips with their mother’s actions.
William explained that both Sophia Grace and Georgia’s relationship with their mother was affected by the events that transpired, saying that it will take time to build trust again.
“After her arrest Felicity found a wonderful family therapist and we’ve all been going (in various combinations) for the last few months. There is much to be done, and some of the hurt and anger will take years to work through, but we are making progress.”
William went on to say that his eldest daughter now battles with nightmares and struggles with sleeping alone.
In the end, things turned out well for Felicity. She only ended up being sentenced to 14 days in prison, and she has since completed her jail time. Currently, Felicity is busy completing her required community service work.
