In an interview with Liz Feldman on her YouTube chat show This Just Out with Liz Feldman, OITNB writer Lauren Morelli opened up about what life is like behind the scenes on Orange Is The New Black and what we can expect from the new season, which hits Netflix in June.

Morelli, who realised she was gay while writing on the first season of OITNB, came out in a touching personal piece, entitled ‘While Writing for ‘Orange Is the New Black,’ I Realized I Am Gay‘.

While talking with Feldman, she talked about how difficult the coming out process was and revealed why she decided to come out publicly. She is now dating Samira Wiley, who plays Poussay on the show.

I hear that there’s a new lesbian character on the show, played by Ruby Rose… Is she as hot as she seems like she would be in person, is she gonna have sex on other women in the show and what can lesbians look forward to?”

Morelli responded

Yes, she’s as hot, yes… she definitely has sex on other people… Now I’m gonna get fired! Of course she’s having sex! I mean, she’s Ruby Rose! You don’t hire Ruby Rose and not have her have sex. That’s crazy!”

She also opened up about her relationship with Samira Wiley, who plays Poussay.
