US actress Felicity Huffman was given a seven year jail sentence for her part in Desperate Housewives.

Judge Pindi Tailwind told the court: “I’ve seen some bad writing, bad direction and bad acting in my time but this takes the cookie.”

The defence pointed out that the series was a top TV show and had won many awards.

The judge replied that it must have been watched by “mindless idiots” and the TV and movie industry was full of sycophantic “suck-uppers” and neither could be relied upon to deliver an unbiased verdict. “That,” said the judge. “Was a job for the courts.”

In her defence Ms Huffman said she was young and naive and, as an aspiring actress, was grateful for any part that came her way.

She added that she knew it was a mistake and she apologised to everyone who watched the program.

She added that she realised she had let everyone down. – the viewers, the scriptwriters, the other actors and actresses, the Producers, the Production Manager, the Director, the 1st Assistant Director, the 2nd Assistant Director, the Script Supervisor, the Cinematographer, the Camera Operator, the 1st Assistant Camera, the 2nd Assistant Camera, the Production Sound Mixer, the Boom Operator, the Key Grip, the Gaffer, the Special Effects Supervisor, the Production Designer, the Art Director, the Props Master, the Props Builder, the Make-up Artist, the Hairdresser, the Costume Designer, and she had let herself down.

Passing sentence, Judge Tailwind said: “Ms Huffman ought to be thoroughly ashamed for her part in the so-called comedy-mystery-drama and only a severe jail sentence will be adequate punishment.

“I have no hesitation in imposing the harshest jail sentence the law allows and further sentence her to take a non-speaking part in the next available Star Wars prequel after her release.

“I hope this will serve as a deterrent to other actresses and film-makers not to get involved in trashy third-rate movies.

After the verdict, a reporter asked the judge how many episodes of Desperate Housewives they had seen.

The judge replied: “”I wouldn’t watch stuff like that.”
