Pia Toscano, who was controversially eliminated from American Idol last week, reportedly met Ballas after they were filming on the same CBS lot in Hollywood.22-year-old Toscano, who was the strong favourite to win 'Idol', dined with Ballas at the Gulfstream seafood restaurant in Century City on Friday night (8th April 2011).
"I guess if you're being talked about it's a flattering thing.
It's a good thing that people want to know more about you, so I'm okay with it." Reports that Toscano and Ballas were dating had first surfaced when TMZ spotted the couple leaving a Los Angeles restaurant after having dinner together on Friday night.
He gets judged every week and he's kind of on a similar show, only I'm singing and he's dancing, so he's a really nice person to have support from," Toscano said.
Toscano has seemingly been handling her newfound stardom well, despite how her love life has recently become a subject of scrutiny in the media and amongst her fans.
The under-the-radar relationship reportedly took off earlier this month when Toscano was still a contestant on "Idol" - both shows film on the CBS Television lot in Los Angeles.
