They’re young, single and sexy — but that doesn’t mean they’re destined to date. Dancing with the Stars partners, Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas, “expect” the dating rumors to roll, but they’re not sweating it. Read on for the details…
Mark Ballas is newly single after splitting from Pia Toscano and Kristin Cavallari is no longer engaged to Jay Cutler — cue the chatter.
Mark Ballas told People of the dating rumors, “That s––t’s already started.”
He added of Kristin Cavallari, “She is a sweetheart. We have a lot of fun. We laugh a lot. We’re getting along great.”
Kristin Cavallari is used to people talking about her love life and the whispers that she’s mixing it up with Mark Ballas — on and off the dance floor — aren’t bothering her the least.
Kristin Cavallari explained, “I kind of expect [the dating rumors], to be honest,” adding, “But that’s what happens when you put two people together.”

Ballas said of his partner, “I’m really proud of her progress. We’re focusing on the routines and making the best performances for our fans. We’re really grateful to them for voting for us.”
Monday, Kristin Cavallari and Mark Ballas will tackle the quick step, and if their cha cha is any indication (even though they should have got higher scores) as to how they’ll do — we’re kind of excited to watch them kick it up a notch.
Does their dating life really matter as long as they focus their feet and keep their eyes on the prize?
