'OITNB's Natasha Lyonne & Fred Armisen Are Dating So Who Cares About That Emmys Snub?
The 2014 Primetime Emmys brought with it a lot of disappointments. That was, after all, the ceremony that had Sofia Vergara being used as a human trophy in a sexist joke that we only didn't get because we "have no sense of humor." Not to mention, coming the day after the 2014 MTV Video Music Awards, the Emmys seemed more than a little boring. And don't get me started on how Orange Is the New Black didn't win any Emmys during the broadcast. However, it seems that one member of the OITNB cast is winning at life and that's what really matters. OITNB star Natasha Lyonne is dating Fred Armisen, according to US Weekly, and if that's true, then they're adorable.
Lyonne and Armisen were spotted at Emmy-related events together over the weekend, including the Variety and Women in Film Emmy Nominee Celebration and the 2014 Primetime Emmys ceremony itself. Sources reported that they were flirting and affectionate during each event, walking with their arms linked and talking closely together. Lyonne even joked that she was sexting someone on the red carpet; in light of US Weekly's report of her relationship with Armisen, that might not have actually been a joke.
Then again, it's not as though it would come as much as a surprise. OITNB's Nicky Nichols is known for nothing if not her forwardness, from pursuing the beautiful and willing women in the Litchfield Prison to giving Alex Vause, played by Laura Prepon, one very sexy Christmas present. Nicky would probably consider sexting a tame way of flirting — you know, if the ability to do so wouldn't mean that she'd have an actual cell phone in her hands in Litchfield.
Currently on the show, Nicky has turned herself over to Red for help staying clean even though she had drugs right there and available in her hands, but it seems like Lyonne's off-screen life is headed to equally positive places.
