Scandalous love affairs are certainty written into the plot of ‘Orange Is The New Black’—but what happens when the writer starts dating one of the characters after leaving her own husband?
Yes, it sounds like drama you’d see on the show— but this is all happening in real life!
Writer of “OINTB” Lauren Morelli said she realized she was gay while writing the show. “I’d found a mouthpiece for my own desires and a glimmer of what my future could look like,” said Morelli.
Subsequently, Morelli left her husband of two years and started dating Samira Wiley, who plays Poussey on “OITNB.”
