Huffman's former costar says she's "extremely disturbed" by the situation.

Felicity Huffman's gone from "Desperate" to "disgraceful," at least according to former costar Nicollette Sheridan.

The fellow "Desperate Housewives" star was a guest on Access Live on Monday and while she was on the show to push "Dynasty," the hosts couldn't avoid asking Sheridan about Huffman's alleged involvement in a college admissions scam currently making headlines.

"We don't know the facts but we can be extremely disturbed by the entitlement, the power and money that could take away from less privileged, and that to me is disgraceful," she explained during her interview. "So we'll see where it really stands."

Huffman and "Fuller House" star Lori Loughlin were among 50 suspects who allegedly paid a collective total of $25 million to guarantee admission of their offspring into elite schools. Loughlin and her husband allegedly paid $500k to have their daughters look like recruits for USC's crew team, despite never participating in the sport, while Huffman is accused of dropping $15k on a scheme involving college entrance exams.

"I think there are ways to remedy a system that isn't working and I think has been broken for a long time," Sheridan continued. "I don't want to get into how to fix it, but it's troublesome. It's troublesome because it can change the life path of a child that is deserving still."

When asked if she's talked to any of her other former "Housewives" costars about the news, she sidestepped the question by saying, "I think everybody should be talking about it. It's a huge problem. It's a huge problem."
