‘Orange Is The New Black’ Writer Discovers She’s Gay, Files For Divorce

share on:

A writer for popular series Orange Is The New Black has filed for divorce after realizing she was gay.

Lauren Morelli filed for divorce from her husband of 2 years, Steve Basilone.

Morelli began writing for the show 5 months after she got married, and said as she started writing for the main character — who had once been in a lesbian relationship — she saw herself in the character.  Lauren says she began to feel like a fraud … married to a man but clearly gay.

As she began writing about Piper’s blossoming relationship with the very hot Alex, Morelli said: “I found a mouthpiece for my own desires and a glimmer of what my future could look like.”

Morelli is now dating Samira Wiley, who play Poussey on the show.
