"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," DeLaria wrote, alongside a Photoshopped picture of herself, Fairless, Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor. "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 sh-- show."

DeLaria, 56, told E! News that she proposed to Fairless at the Netflix party after the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The two met two-and-a-half years ago when they were introduced by Emma Myles, who plays Leanne on Orange, and have been an item ever since.
