Katharine McPhee is hot, hot, hot – not just because of her starring role on the new hit TV show Smash, but because of her sexy, svelte figure, too.
The American Idol alum, 27, opens up to SELF magazine about her busy life and how she stays in bikini-ready shape.
McPhee arrives on set every morning at 6 a.m. ready to get in hair and makeup. But before she puts on her Marilyn Monroe wig, she eats a balanced breakfast of oatmeal and turkey bacon. McPhee's dream breakfast? The "four cheese omelet, crispy turkey bacon, fresh OJ and wheat toast with butter and jam" from Todd English's Ca Va.
