Katharine McPhee is divorcing the husband she cheated on

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.

Is cheating Katharine McPhee back with her husband?

Katharine McPhee And Nick Cokas Back Together? First Photos Of Them Since Extramarital Affair.

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.

From TMZ:

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 Is “SO Embarrassed” About Those Photos

Katharine+McPhee

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.
