Orange-is-the-New-Black-Writer-Divorces-Husband,-Starts-Dating-Poussey

 

Orange is the New Black Writer Lauren Morelli has taken her work home, literally, as she has just divorced her husband of two years and is now dating Samira Wiley who plays the character of Poussey on the show. Morelli claims she discovered her new found sexuality while writing scenes for Alex and Piper. “I realized I was gay in fall 2012, one of my first days on the set,” said Morelli in an essay for Mic. “I found myself answering to an endless stream of cast members who peppered me with questions like a gaggle of kindergartners curious about their new teacher. ‘Are you dating anyone?’ ‘You’re married?’ ‘To a man?’ ‘But you used to kiss girls?’ ‘Do you miss it?’ I was finally forced to consider a question that had never, ever occurred to me before: Holy sh-t, am I gay?” The couple has been said to have split amicably after two years of marriage.

David Muir to Replace Diane Sawyer as Anchor on ABC

David Muir will be joining Brian Williams and Scott Pelley, both over 10 years his senior, as the new ABC “World News” Anchor. Muir has made his rounds with the World News audience as Sawyers chief sub, and since the beginning of this year, has anchored half as many weeknights as Sawyer, 46:92. Since a young age, Muir has known this was the path he wanted to be on. At a mere 12 years old he wrote to Syracuse anchorman Ron Curtis for advice on how to break into the business and impressed him so much, he got his first internship at WTCH-TV the next summer. He went on to work at WTVH for five years before making the leap to ABC News in 2003. Although he will be a main anchor, Muir hopes to be able to report from the field. “A huge part of this for me was a promise that I was not going to be tethered to the anchor desk,” Muir said. He officially replaces Sawyer Monday night.

The series follows the life of Sookie Stackhouse as she enters a mythical world with vampires, werewolves and more. The show is filled with sex and drama, action and adventure and thrived on the vampire craze that began with Twilight and exploded with this incredibly sexy and captivating show. “TRUE BLOOD has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO.

Nasim-Pedrad

NBC’s Saturday Night Live is turning the big 4-0 this year and it seems the show is getting a bit of a facelift ahead of that milestone. The show recently announced that four cast members will not be returning when the next season kicks off in the fall. Three of the ousted Not Ready For Primetime Players–Noel Wells, Brooks Wheelan and John Milhiser–were only with the show one year while the fourth, Nasim Pedrad, has been with Saturday Night Live for five years. While we’ll miss her impersonations of people like Kim Kardashian and Ariana Huffington, Pedrad won’t be going far. She will be seen this fall on Mulaney, a new Fox sitcom starring former SNL writer John Mulaney. Speaking about her departure, Pedrad said, “Obviously there’s nothing like that show and I was lucky to be there for five years. At some point you have to leave, and I can’t think of a better reason to leave than for this particular show and this particular cast.”
