As most people know, Netflix's successful series Orange Is the New Blackis based on the memoir of Piper Kerman's time spent in prison. But while Kerman has spoken about what's true and what the show has taken liberties with — and the "real" Alex has also spoken out in a detailed Vanity Fair piece — for the first time, the man in Kerman's life, Larry, is opening up.
In an article in the online magazine Matter titled "My Life with Piper: From Big House to Small Screen," Smith talks about the other side of the true story. From his near-perfect life essentially crashing at 29 to Kerman's incarceration, her book, the TV series and everything in between, Smith shines a light on what it's like to be that guy -- played by Jason Biggs -- who inspired a big part of Orange. Here are 10 things we learned from his story.

Last week, Mary Steenburgen shared the news that she was joining the third season of Netflix's Orange Is the New Black, but details on her role were being locked up in solitary. Now the secret has escaped, and we know that she won't be wearing orange as a new inmate at Litchfield.

It's been almost a year since we first binge-watched Orange Is the New Black. (As for how many times we've watched it in its entirety since then, we prefer to remain mum). On Friday, the Netflix series finally returns for its anticipated second season. So what better time to look back on where we left off and what's next for our favorite convicts!

It's been a rough season on Law & Order: SVU thus far for Det. Olivia Benson, who was kidnapped and tortured by a serial rapist in the haunting season premiere.
But behind the scenes, the series' longtime star Mariska Hargitay has only good things to say about the show's current season. "I think it's been...

The original Law & Order seems like such a distant, and classy, memory these days. Dick Wolf's mini-empire within NBC now runs on a higher octane of lurid overkill. While Chicago Fire is a harmless enough, though largely forgettable, soap about telegenic first responders, its no-brainer (and brainless) spinoff, Chicago PD, is the most arrogantly conceived display of bare-knuckled hooey since the mercifully short-lived Ironside reboot, which polluted the same Wednesday 10/9c time period last fall.
