Apparently Celia (Lauren’s Mom) Did Some Hard Time…

I wonder what Celia did in order to land herself some time in Litchfield Correctional Facility.

YES, LAUREN’S MOM WAS AN INMATE AT LITCHFIELD
CORRECTIONAL FACILITY IN UPSTATE NEW YORK. 

She eventually found her place at Litchfield, working in the cafeteria.

But she never let prison life bring her down, as shown here cutting lose on the dance floor during the prison’s Valentine’s Day party.

Maybe that’s where Celia learned how to give tough love when needed…

You can watch out for Josephine Pizzino (Celia) in Season 2 of the hit series, Orange is the New Black, exclusively on Netflix. Look out for her in the episodes “You Have To Have Pizza” (2.6), “Comic Sans” (2.7), and “Take A Break From Your Values” (2.10).

The Story of Laila Ali, by Linda Saffioti

Laila Ali was first seen wandering the streets of the Bronx, NY. Using her cute looks and sweet nature, she got by for a while, but it wasn’t before long she was caught by the cops and thrown in lock up. As innocent as she was, life was not looking good for this youngster. 

In the clink, she started associating with the wrong crowd, this was a fast path to destruction for little Laila Ali. Soon enough she had Kennel Cough and Cherry Eye and was put straight on the execution list.

Weeks passed to days and with hours until Laila Ali would be no longer, she was pulled out and saved.

Trembling with excitement and fear she walked through the glorious summer heat of upper Manhattan and found her safe haven in Chelsea.

Extreme care was taken to heal and rehabilitate her back to her true spirit.

It wasn’t before long that she was getting noticed on the streets again. This time by more favorable types.

She had a busy schedule developing her character work. A hit at the dog park, she was fast becoming a favorite.

Across the globe she was now known as ‘Laila’.

Laila was very excited to debut her acting career with talent of such a high caliber. After a day of shooting she would be absolutely exhausted from extending her character to such depths.

But come next morning, full of pep to get back on set. She truly loved it.

Her popularity hasn’t stopped. These days you can find her giving motivational talks to the younger dogs in neighborhoods all around New York.

Laila says the world is her oyster and she is currently considering scripts and working on her comedic abilities.
