Nick Cokas, husband (2005 to present; separated)
Having that gorgeous girl-next-door charm – oh, and serious vocal talent – helped season five American Idol runner-up Katharine McPhee stay in the limelight past her given 15 minutes of ”McPheever.”
Although the L.A. beauty lost the Idol crown to gray-haired blues singer Taylor Hicks in 2006, she did walk away with a record deal and many headlines: for marrying producer Nick Cokas, who is 19 years her senior; battling bulimia; and releasing two well-received albums.
McPhee, who made her film debut in the hit comedy The House Bunny, returned to TV in 2012 as the star of NBC’s musical series Smash, which ran for two seasons. In May 2014, after a yearlong separation from Cokas, McPhee filed for divorce.
