Now that Katharine McPhee and former Smash director Michael Morris’ relationship has been exposed, Michael has completely ditched Katharine to try to reconcile with his wife.
Desperate to make it up to his wife, actress Mary McCormack, and their daughters, Margaret, 9, Rose, 6, and Lillian, 2, the director has cut off all contact with Katharine. “He is devastated he has caused so much hurt.” “He doesn’t want to throw his perfect family away for the sake of a fling with someone who didn’t mean anything to him.”
As Life & Style reported last week, Katharine has ended her relationship with husband Nick Cokas. Although the American Idol alum is still legally married, she and Nick are separated. “Kat was smitten with Michael,” a pal of Kat’s told the mag.
Michael, however, is eager to save his marriage. “He has agreed to stay at a friend’s until Mary is ready to talk,” says the insider.
