Who knew Pia Toscano had a boyfriend back home…no one! But she did and he looks like a dead ringer for Mark Ballas (TheÂ DancingÂ withÂ theÂ Stars dancer who she has been spotted with). Pia has slowly gotten rid of her boyfriend of four years, Â Carlos Nunez a Queens caterer. As she reached the top of American Idol…she stopped reaching for the phone from herÂ boyfriendÂ back home!
According to the NY Post,
The Howard Beach heartbreaker hasn’t officially booted her beau of four years, but she’s tapered off her talks with the 28-year-old from Ozone Park while she lives la vida loca in Hollywood.
“They hadn’t spoken as often as you’d think once she made the final 12,” the source told The Post. “She kind of played a disappearing act.”
Queens caterer Carlos Nunez is licking his wounds now that “Dancing with the Stars” hunk Mark Ballas seems to have stolen his girlfriend, “American Idol” contestant Pia Toscano (inset). Nunez and Toscano dated for four years before she shot to fame on “Idol.”
The head-over-heels Nunez donned a “Team Pia” T-shirt and gushed about his sweet-voiced squeeze the night “Idol” voters surprisingly dumped her on April 7. He even comforted her weeping family at the Roma View catering hall he manages in Howard Beach as they watched the telecast.
But the very next day, Toscano appeared to abandon her supportive soulmate for puppy love in La La Land — reportedly caught smooching with Ballas at the restaurant Gulfstream.
But things were already amiss in March, when Nunez flew out to the West Coast to cheer Toscano’s first television performance — he proudly watched her rehearse for that moment for years — but she could only find “a couple hours” to spend with him, the source said.
The hometown sweethearts met four years ago through mutual friends, and popped up as a couple one night at a boozy house party in Old Howard Beach, the source said.
“I’m confident,” he said. “We’ve been together for a long time. We have a strong foundation. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be.”
Now, while the coy chanteuse continues to describe Ballas as no more than a “a good friend,” Nunez is singing the blues.
Asked by The Post to talk about the break-up, a downcast Nunez replied, “There’s no point.”
I guess fame hit Pia hard…
Update...Idol sources say Pia broke up with Carlos a while back…no cheating…
