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.

Unfortunately for him, the bid was unsuccessful and Harvey Levin's guys subsequently fired up their laptops and posted those babies online. 

Morris was probably browsing the internet when she saw the images - showing her husband enjoying an intimate moment with McPhee in a Hollywood parking lot. She threw him out of the house shortly afterwards.

"Mary threw Michael out of the house on Sunday night when he told her that TMZ had the photos and that they were about to be released," said an insider.

Meanwhile McPhee, 29, and her husband Nick Cokas, 47, has reportedly been separated for months. 

McCormack previously starred in In Plain Sight and she and Morris - her husband of 10 years - split their time between Los Angeles and Albuquerque while she worked on the show. Her husband cheating wasn't the only bad news for McCormack this week either. NBC has also canceled her new series Welcome to the Family after just three weeks on the air due to absolutely dreadful ratings.
