McPhee, 30, got swept up in the biggest scandal of her career back in October 2013 when she was caught kissing Morris in L.A. several months after the cancellation of their NBC show. At the time, the American Idol alum—who had been secretly separated from Cokas months before the photos emerged—was mortified by the incident, according to pals.

"She is SO embarrassed she was caught," a source told Us. "She should have known better!" (Morris has appeared to have since made up with his wife, actress Mary McCormack, with whom he shares three young daughters.) McPhee, for her part, also tried to work on her marriage with Cokas, 49, in the aftermath.
