Morelli was previously married and split from her husband after realizing she was gay while writing for OITNB.
“I realized I was gay in fall 2012, one of my first days on the set,” she penned in an essay for Identities.Mic in 2014.
“Accordingly, I was nervous about the first love scene I’d written for Alex and Piper. I 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,” she wrote at the time.
