Wifey for Lifey. (There are approximately one thousand people to thank for making this the best day of my life. But for now: @bethhelmstetter for her insane planning, talent and vision, @csiriano for making me look and feel like a gay superhero queen, @kristinafrisch for making my face look great, @melschaefers for giving me the best hair every day.)
The couple first met on the set of the hit Netflix prison drama, “Orange Is the New Black,” on which Wiley stars as Poussey and Morelli is the writer and producer. The two got engaged last October in the same Palm Springs location where they now exchanged their vows. At the time, Wiley shared the news on her social media with a photo of her new ring and a captioned it as “Yes.”
Morelli Coming Out
Morelli had opened up about her sexuality in 2014. Morelli wrote that writing for the series had helped her come to terms with her own sexuality, and led her to put in papers for divorce from her husband of two years.
Morelli, who came out via “While Writing for ‘Orange Is the New Black,‘ I Realized I Am Gay,” had previously revealed that her sexuality was the reason she decided to divorce her then-husband, Steve Basilone, in 2014 after two years of marriage. She and Wiley went public with their relationship in September of that year.
“I went through it all on set: I fell in love with a woman, and I watched my life play out on screen…It feels liberating and appropriate to live my life in front of you.”
The couple was also interviewed for Out magazine in December, where they talked in a happy tone about their relationship, and Morelli revealed her nerves on the day of their engagement.
“I was so nervous and terrified she knew it was coming, but she was so shocked that I couldn’t get her to stop crying. 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.”
Lauren explained how she had the urge to propose while she and her then-girlfriend enjoyed a complete weekend getaway in the desert retreat.
“I realized I could propose right before and then we’d have the weekend there to celebrate,’ the writer told the magazine.”
“I found a ring, and they shipped it to me, and it was as if someone had handed me a ball of fire and said, ‘Here, tend to this.'”
Samira celebrated her bachelorette party in Miami this month. She partied at the Miami club E11EVEN taking along 13 of her closest pals, which also included OINTB co-stars Danielle Brooks and Uzo Aduba, as per E!News.
Public appearance since engagement
The couple was very open about their relationship whether it’s in social media or in public after announcing their engagement. And the couple has a very specific reason why,
“Lauren and I both really believe in LGBT visibility and I think that we have done that in a really unapologetic way. The way that we live our lives, the way that we post pictures of each other … Sometimes I don’t feel like we’re doing something that’s so radical. We’re just living our lives. But in these times, it is radical, because people have not felt comfortable just living their lives.”
Wiley and Morelli first commenced dating in 2014 after Morelli’s separation from her husband, Steve Basilone. She’s written about how working on Orange is the New Black and meeting Wiley helped her realize her identity.
Since then, their relationship has become meaningful to more people than just the two of them. Wiley revealed that she’s been contacted by fans from around the world who have thanked her for being so visible in a lesbian relationship. She stated,
“I get messages online from people from different continents, people from Africa, people from all over Europe and Asia, people who can’t talk about this to anyone. They send secret messages to me online about what we mean to them, and about us giving them hope. And honestly, that’s real because we’re just showing who we are and just showing people that that is OK.”
“Fortunately my parents are both very supportive and have always been. That’s who I am, and how I live my life. But not everyone has that privilege. Not everyone is able to even see examples and we take it so seriously that we are able to be that example.”
