Looks like things just got real for a former Desperate Housewives star. Felicity Huffman is now in prison to begin serving her 14-day sentence for her involvement in a college admissions scandal that rocked the world -- and inspired a Lifetime movie, because, of course.

    "Felicity Huffman reported today for sentencing to the Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, CA. Ms. Huffman is prepared to serve the term of imprisonment Judge Talwani ordered as one part of the punishment she imposed for Ms. Huffman’s actions," the celeb mom's representative told Us Weekly in a statement.

    "She will begin serving the remainder of the sentence Judge Talwani imposed -- one year of supervised release, with conditions including 250 hours of community service -- when she is released."

    "Trying to be a good mother doesn't excuse this," Judge Indira Talwani told the actress in court last month before sentencing her to prison. "You can rebuild your life after this. You've paid your dues."

    In addition to serving 14 days behind bars, Felicity must also pay a $30,000 fine and perform 250 hours of community service.
  • Back in April, Felicity pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail and honest services mail fraud.

    Reportedly, Felicity Huffman paid $15,000 in bribes for mastermind Rick Singer to "rig" one of her daughter's SAT scores to help the young woman get into the college of her choice. Felicity apparently tried to take the legal route at first but ended up shelling out thousands of dollars to increase her daughter's scores.

    "I am deeply ashamed of what I have done," the mom of two said as she cried during her sentencing. "At the end of the day I had a choice to make. I could have said 'No.' I take full responsibility."

  • By our estimate, Felicity should be out of prison before Halloween.

    In the grand scheme of things, 14 days isn't a long time in prison -- so Felicity should be thanking her privileged stars she doesn't have to serve out a longer sentence.

    Lori Loughlin, however, is another story ...

    (Time will have to tell with her.)
