The Hit show Orange Is The New Black takes us on a journey through the relationship of lesbian couple Piper and Alex.Well we now know the reason behind incorporating a lesbian couple on the show.
Lauren Morelli, a writer for the hit show is dating Samira Wiley (Poussey), Taystee’s lesbian friend on the show!
Morelli came out and admitted she was gay in an essay , by saying that the show’s main character Piper and her ex-girlfriend Alex helped her understand her own sexuality months after marrying her then-husband.
“I was nervous about the first love scene I’d written for Alex and Piper,”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.”
The new couple were spotted together at the Emmys holding hands together, and dancing at some after parties.
I wish them the best of luck in their relationship, everyone deserves to be happy!
