Although Morelli actually came out in an essay published several months ago, the news is only now going viral after TMZ reported on Friday that the writer filed for divorce from her husband of two years. Morelli, 31, came out in public on Identities. She and Wiley made their red carpet debut at the Emmys on Aug. She questioned whether it was affecting who she was attracted to.

Morelli first opened up about her sexuality in an essay for Identities. Mic this past May. Though she was married to a man, writing for the show made her realize that she was attracted to women. 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,'" she wrote.
She is a recurring character in the first two seasons and a main character during the third and fourth seasons. Wiley was first told about the auditions for Orange is the New Black by a friend from Juilliard , Marco Ramirez, who was a writer for the show. After she discovered that another Juilliard friend, Danielle Brooks , had won a role in the show, Wiley asked Brooks to rehearse lines with her to prepare for her audition for the role of Poussey Washington, the on-screen best friend of Brooks' character, Tasha "Taystee" Jefferson. Wiley's audition was ultimately successful; she appeared in 12 out of 13 episodes of the series' first season and was featured throughout the second season.
Lauren Morelli , one of the lead writers on the Orange is the New Black, has just filed for divorce from her husband of two years, Steve Basilone , because while working on the Netflix prison drama, she realized she is gay. Morelli started writing for the show five months after she and Basilone exchanged vows. Writing lines for the show's main character, Piper Chapman, a woman who was engaged to a man, but in love or just lust with a woman, helped Morelli understand something about herself.
Let me preface this to say that my wife and I are on P.H. primarily for me to show off my wife's beautiful assets and sexiness altogether. I can NEVER see either of us with other people, but we do fantasize about other people getting off to her/our pics and or vids. All of that having been said, I'd like to compliment you on having an incredibly beautiful butt and the taste in which the pics were taken. In our humble opinion, you have one of if not THE sexiest ass on PH. Congrats! Lance \u0026 Viv
