Felicity Huffman will spend two weeks behind bars in federal prison next month, but the facility she will be locked up in actually has some of the cushiest amenities the system has to offer.
After the actress was handed a sentence of 14 days in prison by the judge in her college admissions scandal case, Huffman’s legal team asked she be able to do her time at FCI Dublin because, “It’s the closest to Ms. Huffman’s residence.
So, we got a look at the facilities ‘commissary list’ and it actually includes items like french vanilla cappuccino and bottled water.
But thats not all, the first thing that comes to most people’s mind when they think about the harsh reality prison is safety and hygiene.
BTW, someone has to put money on your books, but the ‘Desperate Housewives’ actress has Willam H. Macy and plenty of money.
The safety issue will be address by the facility by assigning the actress to the “special housing unit” which is designed to house high profile inmates like her, and others at risk to be harmed.
In this prison, hygiene is all taken care of…on the list of items for sale is bodywash, secret solid deodorant, baby powder, St. Ives lotion, Noxema, Oil of Olay, apricot scrub, cocoa butter cream, and even sun tan lotion. Luckily, there is even cosmetics like eye liner, mascara, lipstick, bronzer and even eye lash curlers.
Dental products are also included like Close-Up toothpaste, dental floss, mouthwash, and several types of toothbrushes.
The food inside the walls of FCI Dublin isn’t so bad either, you can buy chips, Oreo cookies, pizza kits, popcorn, and taco mix with shredded beef. We are guessing Hollywood types go for a more healthy plate but they have that taken care of to…brown rice, tuna, salmon, rice cakes, and raw almonds are on the list.
Felicity will be turning herself in on October 25, to the prison which Forbes magazine has called on one of the “10 cushiest prisons” in America.
If all of this wasn’t shocking enough, the inmates get to watch movies on weekdays, play board games and get to join fitness activities.
Bottom line: Prison is Prison, but if you have to do it, this doesn’t sound so terrible.
