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.
