Real Life Lesbian Romance On Orange Is The New Black? Writer Divorces Husband To Woo Star?

Well, this is interesting.

According to TVGuide.com via TMZ, Orange Is The New Black writer Lauren Morelli is now dating one of the show’s stars, Samira Wiley and has filed for divorce from her husband of two years.

Earlier this year, Morelli published a column on Mic.com where she officially came out of the closet and said that she realized she was a lesbian in 2012 right after she was hired to write for the award-winning Netflix series.

“While it certainly would have been disorienting to begin to question my sexuality after three decades of knowing myself, it was particularly blinding because I’d gotten married only a few months before,” she wrote. “It’s now a punch in the gut every time I have to say, ‘I’m getting divorced because I’m gay.'”

While the relationship hasn’t been officially confirmed, photos were taken of Morelli and Wiley (who plays Poussey) holding hands at the Emmy Awards.

Morelli posted this picture of the pair to her Instagram.
