Orange Is The New Black stars announce their plans to tie the knot


Samira Wiley has made an announcement this week – she and her partner Lauren Morelli are engaged. The star posted a picture of the pair Instagram. The post featured a sparkling ring and the word “Yes”. Wiley came out as a lesbian in 2014. “I realised I was gay in fall 2012, one of my first days on the set,” she wrote in an essay for Mic, “It wasn’t so much one thing, but the sum of many small details: how uncomfortable I felt around groups of lesbians or how I considered myself (shrug) a “not very sexual person” I am now out to my family, my friends and most of my co-workers on Orange (and now to you, dear reader),” she added. “Now, when I am in the writers’ room or on set, I no longer feel like I am stuck in the middle of two truths. I belong because my own narrative fits in alongside the fictional stories that we are telling on the show: stories of people finding themselves, of difficult paths and of redemption.”
