It's happening! It is 2015 and we can finally start seriously discussing the third season of Orange is the New Black without thinking "UGH. It's not on until next year?" And with that same excitement, we are also learning that Australian model and DJ, Ruby Rose, will be joining Season 3 OITNB as the newest Litchfield inmate. In a recent spread for Elle, Rose revealed that she would be joining the cast, which Netflix confirmed to Buzzfeed, as Stella Carlin, "an inmate at Litchfield Federal Correctional Institution whose sarcastic sense of humor and captivating looks quickly draws the attention of some of Litchfield's inmates."
Elle mentioned in their spread that Rose, "...oozes raw sex appeal even in an orange jumpsuit, as the newest inmate – and lust object of both Piper and Alex – at Litchfield Penitentiary on this summer’s third season of Orange Is the New Black," but Buzzfeed mentioned that Netflix wouldn't confirm if the lust object fact was true or false, but I think we can all hope it is true. Beyond (potentially) grabbing the attention of Piper and Alex, there are quite a few other characters who Stella might get along with, and then obviously those that she definitely won't be eating dinner with. Let's predict how some of Litchfield's current inmates will receive Ruby Rose's new character, Stella, in Season 3.
Piper & Alex: Friends
This one is kind of a given, since the Elle article hinted towards a relationship (whether it be friendship or more) with these two.
Morello isn't going to like Stella's sarcastic attitude, Nicky is enough for her. She is OVER her instantly.
Nicky Nichols: Friend
From the sound of Netflix's description of Stella ("sarcastic" and "captivating") it seems like Nicky and her would get along splendidly.
Red is just, eh, she's not into her. Why? She just doesn't like her. She doesn't need to explain herself to you.
Crazy Eyes: Friend
Suzanne needs a good friend who isn't going to take advantage of her or use her in their schemes, so with Vee out of the picture, maybe Stella can swoop in and be that person.
I'm thinking Taystee and Stella become friends and Poussey does NOT like that. She doesn't like new people (see Vee), and Stella might make herself very new and very much present in Litchfield.
