Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller has shared what actress Felicity Huffman can expect during her impending 14-day prison sentence for her role in the notorious college admissions scandal. Miller, who recently spent eight months in prison for financial and customs fraud, shared some details about the prison experience over the weekend, MSN reported.
“Well the first day going in is the most stressful, then after that, she is going to be in a big, huge room with bunk beds, tons of them. That’s where they first put you to get acclimated to the prison life,” Miller told reporters while attending the Creative Arts Emmys on Saturday.
Starting October 25, Huffman is expected to serve out her sentence at a minimum security prison in Dublin, California, CNN reported. According to the prison's orientation handbook, which is posted online, Huffman can anticipate having to wear a khaki uniform and needing to have her bed made by 6:30 a.m. every weekday. But due to Huffman's stay being so short, Miller told MSN that the Desperate Housewives star likely won't have to deal with many of the same issues as long-term prisoners.
“She’s not going to get a job because she won’t be there long enough," Miller told reporters. "She’s not going to learn how to be a plumber and how to do HVAC and how to do all the things that you have to do to go over to the men’s prison’s and do. That’s why they have camps. That’s why women are in a prison, so we can go make lunches when they all get in a fight. It’s ridiculous. It is the most absurd nonsense you have ever seen in your life.”
According to People, Huffman pleaded guilty to mail fraud and other charges after evidence showed she paid $15,000 to allow her daughter to cheat on the SATs. According to the charges, William Singer, the mastermind behind the scandal, worked with psychologists to obtain false disability reports that gave Huffman's daughter, along with many other teens, special testing accommodations. They then took the SAT at a test center that was under Singer’s control, allowing them to cheat on the exam.
Despite the negative press and prison sentence, Miller said she believes that Huffman will ultimately come out on top after the whole ordeal is over.
“She’ll come out. She’ll make a huge movie out of it. She’ll make millions of dollars,” Miller said.
