Felicity Huffman's 'Desperate Housewives' Character Paid Money to Get Kids Into School

Is life imitating art?

Amid news that Felicity Huffman was among 50 people charged in a massive college admissions cheating scam, TV lovers have started to uncover old episodes of Desperate Housewives, in which her character, Lynette Scavo, experienced a similar situation.

In season one of the popular drama series, which ran from 2004 to 2012, Lynette and her husband, Tom (portrayed by Doug Savant), were discussing ways to get their twin boys into a private school.

"A generous donation will ensure our kids beat 'em out," Lynette suggests in episode five, to which Tom replies, "How much?"

Lynette's answer? ,000. Which is, coincidentally, the same amount of money Huffman allegedly paid to help get her and husband William H. Macy's eldest daughter, 18-year-old Sofia, into an elite university.
