Former Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman and her 19-year-old daughter Sophia Macy recently tried to travel without being recognized. They strutted through John F. Kennedy Airport in Queens, New York on Saturday, each of them wearing a face mask that helped disguise them from onlookers, according to Page Six.
Sophia dressed simply in a pink turtle neck, a black coat, and black pants with combat boots. Meanwhile, Huffman hid behind a pair of dark sunglasses, dressed in black from head-to-toe and sporting a leather jacket. The actress’s blonde hair peeked out from the black beanie she was wearing. The mother and daughter each pulled a suitcase behind them as they walked along, avoiding eye contact with the paparazzi.
Huffman and her daughter were hardly the only ones with face masks on at the airport. With the deadly coronavirus virus spreading, many travelers are taking extra precautions. However, it’s likely the women both hoped the masks would have made it a bit more likely they wouldn’t be noticed.
2019 was a tough one was Huffman and her family. The mother of two became wrapped up in the college admissions scandal and she eventually pleaded guilty to paying Rick Singer, the mastermind of the scheme, $15,000 to have Sophia’s SAT responses corrected so she would score higher on the exam. Huffman hoped that doing this would give her daughter a better shot at getting into her dream school.
Because she apologized and pleaded guilty, Huffman’s sentence was very light. She served less than two weeks in prison and merely had to pay a fine, do some community service work, and complete a year of probation.
The ordeal led to Sophia not going to college altogether. However, it doesn’t seem to have held her back from achieving the career of her dreams. As The Inquisitr previously reported, it was recently revealed that Sophia scored a role on the series The Twilight Zone. The sci-fi themed show premiered in April of 2019.
As for how Huffman and her daughter’s relationship is doing since the scandal, her husband William H. Macy says they are still working through things with the help of a therapist.
“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.”
