AceShowbiz - Lena Waithe is the first woman that her now wife has ever been romancing. The Emmy Award winning-actress revealed during her recent appearance on "The Wendy Williams Show" that her spouse Alana Mayo had never been in a relationship with a woman before her.
The creator of Showtime's drama series "The Chi" made the revelation while discussing sexual fluidity with the show's host Wendy Williams. "I think sexuality is fluid. You can't put it in a box," she said. "I think what they shared was very beautiful, very intimate, very passionate, but also platonic."
"I believe in the Kinsey scale," she added, before sharing, "My wife had never been with a woman before me." Wendy then chimed in, joking that Lena "tore it down." The 35-year-old actress responded with a laugh.
Lena later revealed whom she would be attracted to if she could have been with a man and she landed her pick on singer/songwriter Pharrell Williams. "Me and Pharrell? That'd be lit," she declared.
Also on the talk show, Lena recalled how her relationship with Alana started out. "We're both from Chicago, funny enough, born in the same month, same year, but we just never crossed paths there," she said. "But we just met at a general meeting. There was no nothing going on there at that point. I was very professional. We just kept bumping into each other and all that kind of stuff. One day, we went to have drinks and something just cliqued. It was different. We've been together ever since."
Lena revealed on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" earlier this month that she had secretly married Alana, whom she had gotten engaged to on Thanksgiving Day 2017, at a San Francisco courthouse. "We snuck and did it. We didn't really make any announcements," she shared. "You know, we didn't make any announcements. It was her idea, like all good things are. She was just driving and she saw the courthouse and said 'We should get married there.' And I said, 'Cool. I'm down.' "
