OITNB Star gets engaged?!


You are bound to have heard of the comedy-drama show, Orange Is the New Black, but have you heard of the recent engagement of Lea DeLaria (or as you may know her, Big Boo!)

The couple actually met through the show that DeLaria stars on. Her fiancee, a fashion editor by the name of Chelsea Fairless, is friends with actress Emma Myles (who appears as Leanne Taylor on the show). After they were introduced to each other, they began dating shortly after for two years now. DeLaria popped the question after the SAG awards where it was announced that OITNB won for “outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series.” Overall, a very emotional night for everyone!

Although there has not been a date set as of yet, DeLaria is hoping for a summer wedding next year. There is definitely a promise that there will be quite a few celebrity names attending, including many co-stars! It has been said that Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who you may currently know him from as a star of Modern Family will be the best man for the wedding. Another close friend to the couple, comedian and actress Sandra Bernhard will be officiating the wedding. On behalf of Pulse, we wish these two a very happy journey together!
