“Orange Is The New Black” Writer Divorcing Husband For Poussey



Orange Is The New Black writer Lauren Morelli just filed for divorce from her husband of two years, Steve Basilone. This normally wouldn’t be news on our website, but since Lauren is dating one of the show’s star, Samira Wiley, we had to share the tea.

Morelli says she realized she was a lesbian while working on the show and shortly after began dating one of the show’s breakout characters, Poussey. The scribe documents the entire experience in an essay on Mic.

“I was nervous about the first love scene I’d written for Alex and Piper. I’d loved writing it, loved watching a tenderness emerge in their relationship where passion always seemed to be the ruling principle, but by that time, I was so deep in my own self-doubt that I constantly felt like a fraud. I was sure it was bleeding into my writing. How could it not? I was married to a man, but I wasn’t straight.”

“I realized I was gay in fall 2012, one of my first days on the set. 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.” When considered alone, these seemed like little quirks that made me me. Wanting to read a book instead of have sex is a perfectly reasonable preference to have, right?”

TMZ reports that the divorce will be amicable. Steve gets the Mazda hatchback and Lauren gets her Lexus, apartment and sapphire engagement ring. The OITNB writer also lands Poussey, good for her.

Blue Ivy Aka Mini Sasha Fierce Already Rockin’ Pumps



Blue Ivy is on the road to being just as fierce as her famous mother, Beyonce.

The Queen Bey shared a series of videos and images on Monday night rocking a colorful ensemble, including a pair of sparkly pink pumps.

In the videos, the singer strikes different poses while showing off the flirty look, but as always, it was Blue who stole the show after being photographed in the same pair of heels.

In one photo, the 5-year-old, clad in a pink pajama set, can be seen leaning over a couch while wearing the heels. In another, you simply see the shoes ill fitted on the cutie’s feet.

There’s no doubt Blue will not only grow up to be a fashionista like her mother, but will most likely become a musical genius.

On Jay Z’s latest album 4:44, Blue lands on one of her famous father’s tracks and kills it with a freestyle.

During “Blue’s Freestyle/We Family,” BI raps for a long 45 seconds about … well … we aren’t sure. But here’s what she’s possibly saying: “Everything, everything is my only single thing / Everything I hear is my answer…I never hear that / I be in the posse / Never seen a ceiling in my whole life, Boom shakalaka / Boom shakalaka / Everything in shaka / Everything in faka.”
