'Desperate Housewives' Costars Eva Longoria & Marcia Cross To 'Lose Millions' In Royalties After College Scam
Desperate Housewives alum Felicity Huffman’s alleged college cheating scandal has infuriated co-stars Eva Longoria and Marcia Cross — who stand to lose a small fortune!
“Each cast member earns a fat royalty every time ‘Housewives’ airs anywhere around the world. Eva and Marcia planned on cashing those checks for years, and now Felicity has messed that up,” a spy dished to Straight Shuter.
“We’re talking millions of dollars lost. They’re steaming mad and nothing Felicity can say or do will help.”
As RadarOnline.com readers know, Huffman and Fuller House star Lori Loughlin were the most famous names in the landmark college admissions scam case that led to 50 people being charged in the criminal investigation involving wealthy parents, coaches and college prep executives who have been accused of carrying out a nationwide fraud to get students into prestigious universities, according to a federal indictment.
