Keep reading for all the details!
As if Pia Toscano wasn’t making enough headlines with her controversial early elimination from American Idol, the New York bombshell has recently hit the news again with rumors of a record contract and that she is dating professional dancer Mark Ballas of Dancing With The Stars. On Thursday Pia Toscano made a visit to the Ellen Degeneres Show where Pia laughed off the rumors. When questioned by Ellen about her “romance” Pia replied by saying “I’m really just focusing right now on my music. I just met him. He’s a sweet guy” and she went on to add “We’re just friends!”
The pair, who apparently were hooked up by current Dancing With The Stars contestant Chris Jericho, have been spotted out and about, having dinner and just having a good time together. Chris Jericho recently told Jay Leno that it was Pia Toscano who expressed her interest in Mark Ballas when she told Chris “I really like Mark Ballas. He’s so pretty.” From there Chris decided to play matchmaker and exchange numbers between the pair.
Is Pia telling the whole truth? Do you believe that she and Mark are just friends, or something more? In any event, we wish Pia Toscano all the best and we truly miss her beautiful voice on American Idol! Comment and share your thoughts with us!
