The kiss between Katharine McPhee and Michael Morris apparently came as quite the surprise to Morris' wife, Mary McCormack. According to Us Weekly on Oct. 24, as soon as the “In Plain Sight” star learned about the kiss, she booted her husband out of the house.
Michael Morris and Mary McCormack have three children together and have been married for 10 years. Katharine McPhee is married too, though now reports indicate she and husband Nick Cokas quietly separated about six months ago. McPhee and Morris know one another from working on the now-canceled show “Smash” together.
While some may have been hoping this would turn out to be some innocent kiss caught at just that very moment it would look the most incriminating, it doesn't sound like that is the case. Page Six claims that Michael Morris even tried to buy the photo that TMZ ultimately printed, to try to keep it from going public.
The story most certainly remindssome of the scandal with Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders last year, though of course the level of fame for the stars involved is quite different. There were no winners in that situation once all was said and done, and so far it seems that may be the case in this situation as well. So far all of the involved parties have stayed mum on the incident, and it will be interesting to see who makes the next move.
Will this kiss seen 'round the world hurt Katharine McPhee's career?
