I’ve had many conversations about the Poussey Effect, which is basically the voodoo that Samira do so well that puts even straight girls in a spell. I’m definitely in that camp. It’s that mischievous smile, yo.
Apparently, OITNB head writer, Lauren Morelli divorced her husband after realizing she was a lesbian. She admitted that writing lead character, Piper’s sexual arc with Alex caused her to realize how much she could relate. Art imitating life like a mug. And of course, the specialized bonding that working on set formulates led to a romance with Samira Wiley.
Look, Samira is gorgeous and she has that whole androgyny thing going for her. She’s basically, the female version of Prince.
So, while this is quite the turn of events, I can’t say I’m surprised. There’s something about Poussey. Hell, I bet Samira and/or Poussey could steal your girl, your puppy and your Twix.
