EVA LONGORIA SAYS FELICITY HUFFMAN HAS HANDLED COLLEGE SCANDAL WITH ‘GRACE’

Eva Longoria is standing behind her former Desperate Housewives co-star Felicity Huffman as she faces trial in the college admissions scandal.

Longoria told ET: "I think she has a heart that is bigger than the sun and that's the Felicity I know and that's the woman I choos. Longoria told the entertainment outlet Wednesday in Beverly Hills. "She was humbled by what happened and I think she did handle it with as much grace as she could in that situation."

Huffman also received support from her Otherwood co-stars, Patricia Arquette and Angela Bassett. Arquette told ET last month: "I think she dealt with it the best way that you can deal with it, but I know she's probably carrying a lot of shame and guilt."

Bassett agreed: "I think she's handling it like a grown-up person. She's handling it like a grown woman. It's a brave thing and a courageous thing."

Huffman and Longoria co-starred in ABC's Desperate Housewives from 2004-2012. Huffman is pleaded guilty and apologized profusely after admitting to conspiracy to commit mail fraud. As part of her plea deal, prosecutors are recommending that she receive a four-month prison term, lower than the 20 years the charges can carry.

A sentencing hearing is set for September 13th.

Another celebrity involved in the scandal, Lori Loughlin, is pleading not-guilty.
