Make way for a new Hollywood couple. Maybe.
In a plot twist worthy of her show, Orange Is The New Black writer Lauren Morelli, who recently divorced her husband, has started dating Samira Wiley, aka Poussey Washington on the hit show. The report comes via Us Weekly
Morelli only came to terms with her sexuality recently.
Morelli did some very public identity searching earlier this year. In May, she wrote an essay for Identities Mic, which served as her coming out letter. Morelli explained that writing Piper and Alex’s relationship on the show had helped her come to terms with her own sexuality. The news came just months after she had married her then-husband.
"I was nervous about the first love scene I'd written for Alex and Piper," Morelli wrote. "I'd loved writing it, loved watching a tenderness emerge in their relationship where passion always seemed to be the ruling principle, but by that time, I was so deep in my own self-doubt that I constantly felt like a fraud. I was sure it was bleeding into my writing. How could it not? I was married to a man, but I wasn't straight."
While that must have been really bad news for Morelli’s husband, we have to hand it to the two ladies – they look really cool together. The former couple jointly filed for divorce soon after and Morelli has been focusing her attention on Wiley ever since. So congrats to the (new) happy couple, we guess.
