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