Katharine McPhee may have split with her husband, Nick Cokas, after she was spotted kissing former (married) Smash director Michael Morris  in October 2013, but it looks like she and Nick are working on putting their marriage back together.

The kissing scandal had an explosive end when Michael’s wife of more than a decade, In Plain Sight star Mary McCormack, reportedly kicked him out after she got wind of what had happened… and although Kat and Nick were allegedly already split up before the kiss took place, the former American Idol runner-up still suffered the consequences of her tarnished image after helping someone else cheat on his wife.

But now, according to what a source close to the couple is telling People, Katharine and Nick are working on moving forward and have recently reunited. They were spotted hanging out with their pups in LA over the weekend, and have remained pals throughout their separation.

“They’re working on their marriage and spending a lot of time together,” the source said. “They’re trying to start again.”

Hopefully Kat and Nick are able to make it work this time around. Since they’ve stayed friends (and still have the home in LA they shared during their marriage) they’ve got a good foundation for a fresh start. Good luck, you two!
