In case you hadn’t heard, Boo is getting married. By Boo we mean Lea DeLaria, one of our favorite funny ladies from “Orange is the New Black (OITNB).” The actress and comedian is set to marry fashion editor Chelsea Fairless on Jan. 8, 2017 — the anniversary of her late parent’s death — and over the weekend she revealed some special news about her upcoming ceremony.
“We know that Uzo is going to be singing at the wedding. She said yes,” the 57-year-old actress said at the 67th Emmy Awards Governors Ball on Sunday, according to People. ” … Chelsea and I both love Uzo’s voice and the way she sings, so it was sort of a no-brainer to ask her to sing at the wedding.”
A couple more of DeLaria’s OITNB co-stars will have big roles on her big day, including 51-year-old Lori Petty (Lolly Whitehall on the show) who will be a flower girl, and Emma Myles (Leanne Taylor) who introduced the couple.
“Orange has really changed my life in a lot of ways,” DeLaria said.
We can’t wait to see pics of the big day.
