Since the ending of season 2 “Orange is the New Black”, a Netflix series, one of the head writers has recently filed for divorce…but to end of dating one of the actresses instead!

Yes, Lauren Morelli has filed for divorce from her husband of 2 years, Steve Basilone, because she realized she is indeed a lesbian. After 5 months of marriage, Morelli began writing for the series and as she was writing about the main character,Piper,and her relationship with her ex, Alex. Morelli says she saw a lot of herself in the main character, I found a mouthpiece for my own desires and a glimmer of what my future could look like.”

Well long story short, Morelli couldn’t continue living like a fraud, married to a man but clearly a lesbian so they both agreed on a divorce. Now Morelli is dating Samira Wiley, or better known as one of our favorite characters, Poussey and things are looking good.

Dressed and ready to go at an absurdly early hour for the Emmys!!! #netflixemmyspartybus
