Uh oh! Katharine, 29, was spotted kissing director Michael Morris in LA — even though they’re both married to other people. Can you believe this, HollywoodLifers?
Actress Katharine McPhee‘s marriage to producer Nick Cokas, 47, is reportedly on the rocks. Still, it comes as a shock that she made out with her married Smash director, Michael Morris, in broad daylight!
Katharine McPhee Spotted Kissing Married ‘Smash’ Director Michael Morris
The actress and her former Smash director and producer were pictured in a passionate lip lock in LA by a car that Katharine was getting into. They were also laughing and smiling!
Additionally, the duo was walking hand-in-hand in a parking lot to the car, gazing into each other’s eyes and displaying major PDA. They were both clad in jeans and casual ensembles and looked like they didn’t have a care in the world!
This looks like an extremely sticky situation, since Katharine is married to the man who encouraged her to audition for American Idol, and Michael is married to actress Mary McCormack. Michael has even directed Mary in her own show on USA, In Plain Sight.
Michael and Mary have three young daughters together, aged two, six and nine, and have been married for 10 years. Katharine and Nick don’t have any children, but have been married for five years.
What makes their kiss even more questionable is that Katharine and Nick have separated, TMZ reported.
Katharine McPhee Separated From Husband Nick Cokas — Report
Katharine and Nick are allegedly separated and have been living apart for six months. No word yet on the status of Michael’s marriage, but judging from the picture, it’s probably not good.
Katharine and Michael worked together for Smash‘s two seasons. The NBC musical drama was canceled, and the season finale aired on May 26. Michael was also director and producer for ABC’s drama, Brothers & Sisters, which ended in 2011.
Looks like both of their marriages may be in question, which is sad, since Katharine dedicated songs from her 2010 album, Unbroken, to Nick.
