Orange Is The New Black’s Lea DeLaria is engaged

Lea DeLaria, one of the stars of Orange Is The New Black, is engaged to her partner Chelsea Fairless.

The actress announced her forthcoming marriage with a doctored picture showing the couple with Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor.

‘Despite their concerns about the patriarchal confines of marriage, actor / singer Lea DeLaria & editrix Chelsea Fairless of Brooklyn, New York are pleased to announce their engagement,’ DeLaria posted today on her Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages.

‘No date has been set for the impending nuptials but it’s safe to say that it will be the event of the season, or a total shit show.’

DeLaria has told E! Online Sandra bernhard will officiate and Jesse Tyler Ferguson will be best man.

She reportedly proposed to Fairless almost two weeks on the night of the Screen Actors Guild Awards, where Orange Is The New Black won Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series.

‘Everyone saw how emotional I was at the SAG Awards,’ DeLaria, who plays Big Boo on OITNB, told E! ‘I was so filled with love. I turned to her at the Netflix party that night and asked her to marry me.’

The couple, who have been together for two and a half years, are planning on getting married in the summer, possibly July 2016.
