FELICITY HUFFMAN’S DELAYED FILM DROPS FIRST TRAILER: When Felicity Huffman got accused of helping her daughter cheat her way into college (she pleaded guilty), her film projects were put on ice. One of them, Netflix’s Otherhood, starring Angela Bassett and Patricia Arquette, is finally moving forward. On Wednesday, the first trailer for Otherhood dropped and the premiere date was announced: August 2nd. In it, the ladies play moms trying to reconnect with their adult sons in NYC after getting dissed on Mother’s Day. “At this stage, it doesn’t feel like motherhood, it feels like otherhood,” Arquette’s Gillian tells Carol (Bassett) and Helen (Huffman). Huffman also played a role in Netflix’s When They See Us, Ava DuVernay’s limited series based on the Central Park Five case.

LEIGHTON MEESTER LAUNCHES FASHION LINE: Gossip Girl alum Leighton Meester has launched an easy-breezy wide-leg jumpsuit designed in collaboration with sustainable LA label Christy Dawn. “The older I get, and the older my kid gets, I’ve realized that comfort is the number one thing that’s important to me,” Meester told Page Six Style. “But a lot of the time, because I’m so concerned with having an outfit be easy and comfortable, style tends to take a backseat.” The fit-and-flare “Leighton Jumper” runs for $308; all proceeds benefit the Downtown Women’s Center.
