I don’t think anyone would be particularly surprised to learn that Katharine McPhee‘s marriage to Nick Cokas has failed. After you get caught cheating on her husband in broad daylight with Smash co-star Michael Morris, there’s not much to do besides divorce, right? While it seemed like they might be trying to work things out in recent months, it’s a no go, and their relationship is officially over.
A rep for McPhee confirms exclusively to PEOPLE, “After six years of marriage, and having been separated for the past year, Katharine McPhee has filed for a dissolution of marriage from Nick Cokas. The two have an amicable relationship and will remain friends. They ask that people respect their privacy during this time.”
Well, there ya go. Also, still obnoxious that people getting divorced feel the need to insist that they’re still going to be friends. No the hell you aren’t, so knock it off. I can’t imagine it’s very amicable knowing that the person you thought you were going to spend your life with was brazen enough not only to go off with another man, but do it in public in the middle of the day with cameras around. Kewl move, McPhee.

In case you forgot (because let’s be honest, who really cares about Katharine McPhee anymore), last October, the Smash star and her married Smash director Michael Morris were caught kissing in public and Katharine got all embarrassed because the photos got released and her husband, Nick Cokas, peaced out on her.
Well, it looks like Nick has a bit of a forgiving spirit, as he and Katharine were spotted walking their dog together in LA and have apparently been working on patching shit up.
Katharine and Nick are currently living apart — but we’re told they’ve been hanging out together more and more often recently … Katharine even bought Nick a brand new Rolex as a make-good for the public humiliation.
Must have worked too — we’re told Nick’s leaning toward taking her back.
If this idiot can be bought off with a Rolex, well… I don’t even know what to say. I guess “love” makes you do crazy things?

Katharine McPhee was photographed kissing Smash director Michael Morris which wouldn’t be newsworthy at all if both McPhee and Morris weren’t married to other people. As I suspected, sources say McPhee’s marriage has been over for about 6 months. As for Moriss…well, his wife was not pleased by these photos. And Ms. McPhee is apparently “so embarrassed.” More from Us Weekly:
… while Morris’ actress wife of ten years Mary McCormack allegedly kicked him out of their home after finding out the news, McPhee’s situation is a little different. As rumored, the actress and American Idol runner-up, 29, has been separated from producer husband Nick Cokas for at least six months, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly.
… ”She is SO embarrassed she was caught,” a second source says of the undeniable photos. “She should have known better!”
Oh, Katharine! God this is so juicy. It’s classic old school Hollywood gossip. Too bad it’s not with celebs anyone cares about.

Well this is juicy. Katharine McPhee and Smash director Michael Morris were spotting kissing in public. The thing is, they’re both married — but not to each other. Morris is married to actress Mary McCormack and McPhee is married to some dude named Nick Cokas. TMZ broke the story and posted the scandalous snapshots.
So what’s going on here? Are both marriages over and they kept it private? Do they both have open marriages? Do they both just not care? And don’t tell me that’s just a friendly kiss.

Bikini season is upon us. ‘Tis the time of year where we get to see “BEST AND WORST BIKINI BODS OF 2013″ splashed all over celeb magazines, along with hints of “HERE ARE 100 PEOPLE HOTTER THAN YOU ARE, F-CK YOU!” So let’s get it over with and take the wind out of our sails with this post of celebrities in bikinis and get to the inevitable who looks fat and who doesn’t and let’s cry into our pizza. Our delicious f-cking pizza. I think all these ladies look great, although I doubt some of their bikini choices, simply because some of these are ugly.

Why’s it confusing, you ask? Because I’m not sure if girlfriend’s trying to rip off Courtney Love‘s style, or if she just wants to look like Christina Ricci. In either case, she’s not pulling it off well, because in order to be Courtney, I’d recommend some smears on that carefully-applied lipstick, some baby barrettes, and maybe a handful of lesions thrown in for good measure. If, on the other hand, she’s trying more for Christina, she needs to shrink about three feet, because girl is tall (trivia: Katharine McPhee is a statuesque 5’8″, whereas Christina Ricci is a mere 5’1″).
This is what Katharine wore during the recent TCA press conference in Los Angeles, where she talked about her new show, ‘Smash’, and oh my God do I hate it. No really—I actually pretty much hate it. Katharine McPhee is a beautiful girl who can generally do no wrong (when it comes to looking beautiful; I’m not going to touch the subject of her acting with a ten-foot pole), but this entire getup is so, so wrong on so, so many levels.
Katharine McPhee’s onesie/dress thing—love it or leave it?
