The moment Danielle Gaudette was told who her birth mother was, "My world shrunk into a tunnel," she tells PEOPLE. "It was like 8 a.m., and I was waiting for a taxi to come and take me to work. The phone rang, and this woman said, 'We think we've found a match.' Immediately I'm like ... it's hard to describe. What is it? Fear? Panic? Anxiety? It was definitely adrenaline."
Gaudette, who was 22 at the time, recalls the woman on the phone saying, "We're all so excited at the office. Do you watch Star Trek? It's Captain Kathryn Janeway from Star Trek."
Her mom, of course, is Kate Mulgrew, Emmy-nominated actress of Orange Is the New Black, whose new memoir, Born with Teeth, details the 22-year search for the daughter she gave up for adoption. Now a yoga teacher on the West Coast, Danielle is speaking for the first time about reuniting with her birth mother.

Netflix has released the first trailer for Orange Is the New Black's third season, and it promises to be the dramedy's most unapologetic yet.
Despite Alex (Laura Prepon) being back in Litchfield after violating her probation, it doesn't seem like things between her and Piper (Taylor Schilling) will be returning to the status quo: The trailer gives us a glimpse of a flirtation between Piper and new inmate Stella (Ruby Rose).

When Orange Is the New Black star Lea DeLaria made an appearance at a New York event Thursday night, she was dramatically thinner than when we last saw her in season 2 of the Netflix show.
And the brash, fun-loving comic revealed the key to her weight loss while holding on to her fierce sense of humor.
"What you need to do is, first contract diabetes. Two, take the medication that they give you for diabetes," she told PEOPLE at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center's annual dinner at Cipriani Wall Street, which honored award-winning Transparent star Jeffrey Tambor and included attendees such as Neil Patrick Harris and Laverne Cox.
