The Parent Trap's Elaine Hendrix to Join 'Dynasty' as New Alexis

Nicollette Sheridan Reacts to 'Desperate Housewives' Co-Star Felicity Huffman's Alleged College Admissions Scandal

Nicollette Sheridan is reacting to her Desperate Housewives co-star Felicity Huffman‘s college admissions scandal, where she allegedly paid $15,000 to participate in the college entrance exam cheating scheme.

“I mean…We don’t know the facts,” Nicollette initially said during her appearance on Access Live. “But we can be extremely disturbed by the entitlement, the power and money that can take away from less privileged. And that to me is disgraceful.”

“So…we’ll see where it really stands. I think there are ways to remedy a system that isn’t working and I think has been broken for a long time. So, I don’t want to get into how to fix it…it’s troublesome. It can change the life path of a child who is deserving,” she added. “I think everybody should be talking about it. It’s a huge problem.”
