Hollywood’s latest good girl gone bad, Katharine McPhee, is “embarrassed” after being caught kissing her married Smash director Michael Morris. But sadly, she isn’t the only star whose indiscretion has been caught on camera.
Good girl Katharine McPhee is in serious hot water after being snapped by the paparazzi making out with her Smash director Michael Morris. The two, who are both married, apparently couldn’t control their outbursts of affection and had to sneak in some romance in a parking lot. Clandestine? Not so much. The news quickly reached Morris’ wife and the mother of his three children — super-sweet actress Mary McCormack.
On Sept. 27, eccentric director Tim Burton was spotted leaving a London theater with a mystery blonde — clearly not his longtime love, Helena Bonham Carter. Sure, it was enough to raise eyebrows, but they could simply have been old pals catching up. Until, that is, their catching up consisted of ducking into the shadows to canoodle. Carter, who has been with Burton for 12 years and has two children with him, insists any implication of indiscretion is complete nonsense. Uh, Helena — did you see the picture, sweetie? Friends don’t kiss friends like that.
What’s the deal with directors these days? Michael Morris and Tim Burton may have been caught creeping recently, but the director fling of the decade has to be that of Kristen Stewart and her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders last July. Stewart, of course, had been seriously dating her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson. (I mean, really — who cheats on him?!) Sanders was married at the time to Vogue model Liberty Ross, with whom he has two kids. He was reportedly “devastated,” and she was “angry” at herself. But, c’mon — what did you expect, guys? You were getting it on in a car. In broad daylight. In LA.
We’re sure that ousted American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr wasn’t Jason Aldean’s first temptation during his marriage to his high school sweetheart, Jessica Ussery. Sadly, she was the one Aldean got caught on camera getting cozy with at a bar. Again, we must ask: What were you thinking? For the small-town boy who made it big, the scandal majorly rocked his marriage — understandably. And while Ussery at first stood by her country beau, the two have since filed for divorce.
LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian
The pictures may be grainy, but the evidence was nonetheless damning in 2009, when LeAnn Rimes was allegedly caught on CCTV at a restaurant leaning over the table to kiss her hunky Northern Lights co-star, Eddie Cibrian. Naturally, they played the denial game — he vowed he wasn’t stepping out on wife Brandi Glanville, and she admitted she and husband Dean Sheremet were ‘going through a difficult time’ but still together. It didn’t shock anyone when the two actually did leave their spouses and, eventually, marry each other. Rimes can often be found trolling Twitter these days, picking fights with Cibrian’s ex.
Sienna Miller and Balthazar Getty (not pictured)
Taken out of context, one may have seen the pictures of Balthazar Getty and Sienna Miller’s romantic Italian tryst in 2008 and thought they were nothing more than two very attractive people in love. However, she wasn’t the woman he’d pledged to love till death do they part and all that — you know how it goes. While Getty engaged in a PDA-fest all over Positano, his wife Rosetta was home taking care of the couple’s kids. However, this is one scandal with a (relatively) happy ending: Rosetta and Balthazar have since patched things up and claim to be “better than we’ve ever been.”
