rOrange is the New Black (OITNB) star, Samira Wiley. Opened up about being in love with her fiancé Lauren Morelli.

This is whilst working with her now fiancé Lauren Morelli on the set of the hit Netflix original.

Lauren Morelli, a writer for the show, grew close to Samira Wiley.

Wiley played Poussey Washington when tasked with making up a rap.

Samira Wiley told Out: “Lauren is an amazing rapper, however, I kept coming up with questions to find a way to talk to her.

— bullshit like “I don’t know if I’d rhyme this word with this word.

“Then we were sitting in the prison cafeteria for a scene, eating some stale noodles, and like a kindergartner, I came and put a noodle on her ear — anything to see her smile,” says Samira Wiley.

Morelli, married at the time, felt a “magnetic” spark and began questioning her sexuality.

“I had started questioning my sexuality as a result of being in the writers’ room and talking about all the themes on the show,” she said.

“I was very open with my husband and told him. That turned into a year of going to couples therapy.

“I had a few queer women around me, but not many I could talk to about such a huge, vulnerable thing.

“Samira became my outlet, and through that process, I fell in love with her. Being with her felt too good to be true,” she said.

Morelli separated from her husband And began dating Wiley.

The couple were together for three years by the time Morelli proposed.

The pair went on holiday to Palm Springs where Morelli surprised her, and Wiley couldn’t believe it.

“Lauren has been married before, so I wanted her to tell me she was ready, her to be the one to propose. I didn’t know she was as ready as she was. Completely shocked,” explained Wiley.

“She was hyperventilating. I thought, Oh, this is not good. This has gone too far,” added Morelli. “She was very clear she’d wait for me to be ready, so to give her something I knew she wanted so much was incredible. It was the most magical day of my life.”
