Morris has been kicked out by his wife of 10 years and has dropped out of directing a TV pilot following his cheating scandal
Katharine Mcphee and Michael Morris were spotted locking lips in broad daylight following a cosy lunch date in Los Angeles this month, with a photo from the intimate moment being caught on camera and published on the web by TMZ. The ensuing scandal has already wrecked Morris' home life and may also gravely affect both his and McPhee's career, after Morris dropped out of a directing job for a future TV pilot and McPhee's reputation as a 'golden girl' now looks to be in tatters.
As reported by Page Six this Thursday (24 Oct.), Morris’ wife of ten years and the mother of their three children, Mary McCormack, kicked her cheating spouse out of their home last Saturday (19 Oct.). Since it was reported that Morris as been kicked out of his family home, Deadline reported that he has also been ousted from the directors chair on the planned E! pilot called Songbyrd. The planned pilot would have seen Morris re-team with Smash! executive producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron - the show he met and directed McPhee on during it's failed run - however in the light of the recent scandal Morris has fallen out of favour with the production team.
With Morris' carrer falling apart at the seams, McPhee's budding acting career could also suffer as a result of the scandal. At least this is what PR Director Jamie Krauss believes. Krauss recently spoke with Fox about the affair and how McPhee could have resigned herself into acting obscurity - and could also ruin her singing caeer - as a result of the affair. He said, “This probably won’t affect Katharine McPhee’s sales or her ability to get roles in the near future but her likability factor will be seriously tarnished. When female stars act as home wreckers , the American public, but particularly women, tend to sour to them very fast. Look at Kristen Stewart or Leann Rimes or even Angelina Jolie. All of them took a lot of heat for their famous affairs.”
Michael Morris ditches new TV pilot amid kissing scandal with Katharine McPhee.
Katharine Mcphee and television director Michael Morris were photographed kissing each other earlier this week (22nd Oct).
The only problem is they are both married to different people! McPhee, who is 27 years –old, is married to 47-year-old producer Nick Cokas but have been separated from each other for 6 months.
Morris has reportedly been thrown out of his home by his wife of 10 years, actress Mary McCormack, as soon as the photographs went on the web via TMZ.
Katharine McPhee may or may not have been the reason behind the split.
Today’s heaping helping of celebrity drama comes from actress Mary McCormack, who reportedly kicked her husband, director Michael Morris out of the family home. The reason was Morris’ infidelity, after he was photographed kissing Katharine Mcphee. This according to Life & Style, who first reported the unfortunate news. According to the website, McCormack is all but set on ending the relationship.
At this point, McCormack isn't willing to consider getting back together with her husband.
"They've been together for more than 10 years and always had such a solid marriage," an insider tells Life & Style. "They have three daughters, so it's incredibly sad. He wants to keep the family together, but as far as Mary is concerned, it's over. There's no going back." Morris met McPhee, while he was directing her in the series Smash. McPhee, of course, originally came into prominence with her appearance on American Idol in 2006 and has since gone on to record two albums and a Christmas record. She ended her relationship with Nick Cokas, her husband of five years, back in March and is currently divorced. The same can’t be said of Morris, who reportedly began the affair while still married to McCormack. The situation is made even worse by the fact that the couple (Morris and McCormack) have three daughters - three daughters: Margaret, 9, Rose, 6, and Lillian, 2.

Katharine McPhee, Michael Morris? Mary McCormack didn't know about it.
We brought you a story yesterday about Mary McCormack's husband Michael Morris kissing former American Idol star Katharine Mcphee in Los Angeles. Ok, so it was sad that Mary and Michael had split up, but the director looked pretty happy with his new girlfriend McPhee and he didn't appear to care who noticed.
Only...Morris and McCormack hadn't split and the romance was very much news to the television actress, oh oh.
According to the New York Post's Page Six, Morris - who directed McPhee on the NBC musical series - knew TMZ.com were about to publish the photographs and tried to buy them to avoid ruining his marriage and reputation.

NBC's Smash is to return to your television screen tonight, (Tues, Feb 5), bringing its glitzy brand of showbiz back for a second season after the first took us on the journey of Bombshell - an exciting new musical about Marilyn Monroe.
"This isn't domestic drama," says Joshua Safran, the new Smash showrunner who has changed the show since its bow. "It was really important to me to not have a lot of outside story, to keep everything revolving around the musicals and the world of musicals, so that even if the characters have personal issues, it's all about how those personal issues are impacting their work." One thing that hasn't changed, though, is former American Idol finalist Katharine Mcphee who returns as Bombshell actress Karen. She has a new mentor, though - a Broadway star played by Jennifer Hudson.
Part of the show's success is the involvement of people who are well and truly in the industry themselves, like Christian Borle, who won a Tony Award last spring for his performance in the comedy Peter and the Starcatcher. "As somebody who has devoted a lot of time to the theatre, I think it's fair to say that your personal life becomes absorbed into that world," Says Borle, who plays Julia's songwriting partner Tom. "So when you tell the dramatic story of the theatre, you don't have to go far: it's all personal." (via The Star)

This side-splitting Rom Com has got to be the least serious love story to come out this year with stereotypical gangster action and a cheesy but cheerful meant-to-be romance. Directed and written by Rob Hedden (writer for 'The Condemned' and 'Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan'), the delightfully charming 'You May Not Kiss The Bride' will not fail to amuse audiences anywhere on its scheduled cinema release this autumn on September 21st 2012.
