What a week its been for American Idol’s former season 10 frontrunner Pia Toscano. After shockingly getting the boot from the results show on Thursday, April 7, the 22-year-old aspiring singer from New York has been on the move in Hollywood. However, Toscano wasn’t just focusing on her sure-to-be successful career post Idol, but a brewing romance with a certain Dancing king.
According to the New York Post, on Friday, April 8, Toscano stepped out with Dancing with the Stars pro Mark Ballas. The twenty-something twosome had a delectable meal at LA eatery Gulfstream after being caught by the watchful eye of the paparazzo.
But how did this unexpected pair hook-up?
As reports confirm, Dancing contestant Chris Jerricho initiated the reality romance, as both Idol and the ABC reality hit film on the same CBS studio lot. People.com reported that Toscano and Ballas’ trailers were close by, thus potentially prompting a first date.
Though the couple may still be getting to know one another, this hot pair may be on the fast track to a real relationship sooner rather than later. After sources confirmed that Toscano had been crushing on Ballas, it looks like the Idol cast off got her wish and maybe more, as the two plan to go out again soon.
Although Toscano’s love life may be red hot, its her music career that is on fire. E! Online reports that Toscano may have a pending single with Interscope Records, however, a deal has yet to be signed.
Despite getting dropped from Idol, it looks as if Pia didn’t hit a double whammy, but a double jackpot, thanks in part to a new boy toy and budding music career.Tags: ABC, American Idol, CBS, Chris Jericho, Dancing with the Stars, Mark Ballas, Pia Toscano
