Turns out you can't just cheat on your wife in broad daylight with a celebrity and get off scot free.
Michael Morris, the "Smash" director who got caught kissing "Smash" star Katharine McPhee yesterday, has been given his marching orders. According to Page Six, his wife, actress Mary McCormack, kicked him out of the house when he told her about the pics.
Everything about this story is bonkers. As I observed yesterday, the photos don't look like an illicit hookup - more like an established (and boring) couple. Why on earth would they act that way in public if Morris was still married to McCormack (McPhee and her husband had already been separated for some time)? Did they want to get caught? Or is Morris really that dumb?
It sounds like it's probably the latter: Morris reportedly tried to buy the photos himself once he learned of their existence so they wouldn't become public. I don't know much about cheating, but I feel like I'd be way better at it than this Michael Morris guy.
