Big Boo is getting hitched! Orange Is the New Black’s Lea DeLaria is engaged to her fashion editor girlfriend Chelsea Fairless. The actress announced the happy news via Facebook on Friday, Feb. 5.
“Yes bitches I am engaged,” the 56-year-old wrote. “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,” she continued. “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 s–t show.”
Along with the funny post, the Illinois native also shared a Photoshopped photo from Liza Minnelli’s March 2002 nuptials to producer David Gest. DeLaria and Fairless took the place of the now-exes as they posed with their wedding guests, the late Michael Jackson and late Elizabeth Taylor.
DeLaria is best known for playing Big Boo on Orange Is the New Black since 2013. The comedian has also appeared on TV soap One Life to Live, Awkward., and Will & Grace.
