See how much time Felicity Huffman is looking to serve in the college admissions scandal...

May 14, 2019

**FELICITY HUFFMAN pleaded guilty yesterday for her part in the college admissions scandal, and prosecutors recommended she get 4 to 10 months.  She could also be hit with a $20,000 fine. 

Huffman arrived in court with her brother. There was no sign of her husband WILLIAM H. MACY, who was never charged.

Huffman cried as she explained to the judge that her daughter knew nothing about the scam.  She also revealed that her daughter had learning disabilities. She had been seeing a neuropsychologist since she was 8, and had been receiving extra time on exams since she was 11.

Felicity will be sentenced on September 13th.



**Hannah Brown started her journey strong during the season 15 premiere of The Bachelorette on Monday, May 13.

Hannah recruited her Bachelor pals Demi Burnett and Katie Morton to scope out the men from a surveillance van on night one. Demi was on the lookout for Scott, who she heard had a girlfriend back home.

Thirty men arrived to meet the woman whose heart they hope to capture. Connor S. jumped a fence, Joe jumped out of a … box, and Cam did a freestyle rap reminiscent of the After the Final Rose performance that earned him an early rose.

Lots more drama ensued, (obvi) but at the end...Brian, Chasen, Hunter, Joe, Matt Donald, Ryan and Thomas were sent home during the first rose ceremony.



**The cast of Beverly Hills, 90210 reunites in a new promo for BH90210, FOX’s meta-reboot of the ’90s drama.

In the promo, the stars of BH90210 hear the original series’ theme song in unexpected places: Jason Priestley hears it from his alarm clock, Tori Spelling hears it in her coffee maker, Jennie Garth hears it from her hair dryer and Brian Austin Green even hears it in his motorized tie rack. Heading the call, the 90210alums — also including Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris and Shannen Doherty — congregate at a soundstage and strike a dramatic pose.

The network’s description of the new series says the actors will play heightened versions of themselves in a brand-new serialized drama — with a healthy dose of irreverence — that is inspired by their real lives and relationships.

BH90210 premieres on FOX Wednesday, August 7.
