‘Queen Sugar’ Star Rutina Wesley Gets Engaged to New Orleans Chef

“Queen Sugar” character Nova Bordelon enjoys whirlwinds with New Orleans lovers and has a liking for the ladies. And according to a series of recent Instagram posts by Rutina Wesley, who plays the free-spirit on the OWN series, there’s more than one similarity between the actress and the character she portrays.

Over the weekend, Wesley announced her engagement to a female chef from New Orleans. She announced the news via Instagram.

Many are referring to the announcement as Wesley’s coming out. While Wesley’s “Queen Sugar” character didn’t mark her first major role as a character attracted to the same-sex, the actress’s true sexuality has rarely, if ever, been a point of discussion. In 2013, Wesley divorced from then-husband Jacob Fishel.

If the post was Wesley way of coming out, it appears a double congratulations is in order!
