Ellen: Felicity Huffman Desperate Housewives 

After eight seasons on primetime television, Desperate Housewives came to a close in May. Since then, Felicity Huffman has been navigating life as a mom, wife, actress and now writer and editor of her own webzine, WhatTheFlicka.com. She and Ellen gabbed about the new site, getting older and played a friendly game of Guesstures.

On December 9 2012 Huffman turned 50. Her husband, William H. Macy, threw her a whole week of birthday surprises. She got a present every day and then took her shopping. They came home to all seven of her siblings, which Macy had flown in from all over the country for a huge party. Their friends and kids came for singing, dancing and fun.

Macy took his wife on a weekend getaway in a Rolls Royce. She said she felt like “the queen of England with better shoes.” She was really excited that Rolls Royce’s have umbrellas built into the door, but they cost $450,000. It was a fun weekend car.

Ellen: WhatTheFlicka.com Review

After wrapping her television series, Huffman wanted to do something new. She started a webzine called WhatTheFlicka.com. Flicka is her nickname. The website is now a Forbes top 10 for parents and top 100 for women. As one of eight siblings Huffman wanted a place where women can come and have a safe board to sounds off. It’s for parents and fans of Desperate Housewives as well. She has 26 contributors from a variety of backgrounds.

She called it a place to come and say, “I hate this!” Parents and women can come for recipes, blogs, how-tos and more.
