Wendy Williams Slams Felicity Huffman’s 14-Day Jail Sentence: ‘If She Was Black, It'd Be 14 Years'

On Friday, actress Felicity Huffman received her sentencing for her role in the explosive college admissions scandal that rocked Hollywood earlier this year.

The 56-year-old actress was sentenced to two weeks in prison.


In addition, the judge fined Huffman $30,000 and said she would be on supervised release for one year.

The actress will be also expected to complete 250 hours of community service.

The sentencing has been controversial, and the latest celebrity to weigh in on Huffman's fate is Wendy Williams.

Never one to shy away from tough topics, the talk-show host announced she believes Huffman was given a lighter sentence due to her race and celebrity status during Monday’s season premiere of the Wendy Williams Show.

“If she was black, it’d be 14 years,” Williams said.

“Do I think she’ll ever work again? Yeah. Because first of all, she copped to it. Second of all, she’s one half of a power couple in Hollywood. And she’s a nice woman. She just did something that I think a lot of mothers would do if you had the means.”

Williams concluded, "I think she should have been fined millions."

"Also, the money that she is fined should hopefully be given to support those who can’t afford a better education."
