Katherine McPhee and Her ‘Smash’ Director Are Either Having an Affair or Just Regular Old Dating

Though their show was mercy killed last season, Smash star Katherine McPhee and the show’s director Michael Morris have been spotted smashing their faces together, in a customary Western display of affection called a kiss.

This is all good and well, except that both Morris and McPhee are married. Or maybe they’re not. It’s completely possible that Morris and McPhee have both separated from their spouses and just forgot to tell us, their close personal friends. Who knows! TMZ, which has photos of the either torrid or completely innocent kiss, claims to have a source that confirms McPhee and her husband Nick Cokas have been separated for six months. Morris is married to Mary McCormack who you’ll either know from Private Parts, The West Wing, K-PAX or In Plain Sight, which says a lot about you. McPhee and McCormack have three daughters together.

Neither McPhee nor Morris have said anything publicly about a split, but then again a press release is likely not the first thing you bang out when going through marital troubles. Congratulations or condemnations are in order or, most likely, some combination of both.
