April 24, 2019

Martha Stewart has weighed in on Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman legal troubles in the College Admissions Scandal!

Last night was the Time 100 Gala and Stewart was asked about the Loughlin and Huffman on the red carpet by Entertainment Tonight. Brooke Anderson started off by saying Stewart has a powerful comeback story -- going to jail herself for a 5-month sentence in 2004-2005 -- and asked her what advice she has for the two A-list actresses.

"I just feel sorry for them...They might have made a bad mistake." It's clear at the end of the video she really wanted to cut that question short as she immediately started walking away after. For someone who has been to prison, it's interesting to hear from her perspective. Regardless, many people were quick to critique her point-of-view on social media.

ET spoke with Stewart earlier this month The Hollywood Reporter's 9th Annual Most Powerful People In Media gala. She was asked about the scandal -- when it was first going down -- and said that these stars will havea future to bounce back. Additionally, she noted the hardships of going through all of this publicly. "It's just embarrassing for a family to go through what they're going through and horrifying that it even occurred...It's a sad thing."

Now, according to CNN, seventeen defendants, including Loughlin and her husband, are demanding to see the prosecution's latest evidence. In a motion that was filed, it stated, "Defendants would like an opportunity to review discovery in a meaningful way before filing of substantive motions in this case." The reason is so they can make informed legal arguments and decisions.
