Lauren Morelli, the writer of ‘Orange Is The New Black’ is dating Samira Wiley, the 27 years old American actress. Lauren turned to be a gay months ago.
The author from the famous Netflix show, Lauren and the beloved Poussey, who was the lesbian best friend of Taystee, Samira is dating now. Lauren has just filed a divorce from her husband Steve Balisone.
Reason behind divorce!
The prime reason behind the divorce was not Samira, rather it was because being attracted by same sex and not from opposite. The writer after writing ‘Orange Is The New Black’ realized that she is a lesbian and gets more attracted towards woman. From that time she started dating Samira and felt more attracted towards her. In Lauren’s words, “I was nervous about the first love scene I’d written for Alex and Piper.” The writer continued, “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.”
However, the relationship was not a secret anymore as people came to know about them after the close and adorable selfies they snapped with each other. Probably that was the time when Lauren was determined to end her normal relationship with Steve and move with Samira. The celebrities came under spotlight after she filed the divorce.
In fact this was not the single incident that changed the life of many people, on screen and off-screen. Laverne Cox, 30, the first openly trans woman, was nominated for the Emmy for ‘Orange Is The New Black’. She continued to inspire the trans people to maintain their identity and be themselves. However, it was amazing that the writer and the actress turned to be really influenced by their own work!
