OMG, Pia Tocasno was spotted on a date with, Dancing with the Stars pro, Mark Ballas…WTF!!
Mark Ballas provided comfort to “American Idol” castoff Pia Toscano last night — on what appeared to be a date at an L.A. mall, with a special cameo by Paula Abdul!
They were both gussied up as they left Gulfstream restaurant in Century City, as Pia told us she — like everyone else — was surprised she got the “A.I.” heave-ho.
Until Pia got the boot, they were both rehearsing and shooting their shows next to each other at CBS Television City in L.A.
It’s unclear if Mark — a known chick magnet — or Pia made the first move.
Idol constant, Paul McDonald was also spotted on a date with Twilight honey, Nikki Reed. Crazy I know!!!Don’t feel too bad for Pia Toscano itÂ seemsÂ as though Interscope snatched her right up after her elimination…could let that talent goÂ right!!!
Less than 24 hours after her shocking early American Idol exit, season 10 finalist Pia Toscano has scored a record deal, UsMagazine.com has exclusively confirmed.
The 22-year-old New Yorker — booted from the Fox series Thursday — will record her debut album under the Interscope Records imprint, which is chaired by Idol mentor Jimmy Iovine.
“Pia is being signed to a deal with Interscope Records who are rushing her into the studio to record an album ASAP,” a source familiar with the contract talks tells Us. “Starting [Thursday] night after the show, Interscope told her they wanted her and first thing [Friday] morning Interscope brass started calling every top songwriter and producer in town to get an album together and rush release it.”
As for the contract, the insider says, “Papers are being finalized. It’s basically a done deal. She’s signing. They rushed everything but she’s so excited.”
Though Idol fans are still coming to terms with her dismissal, Toscano — who will hit the road this summer for the Idols LIVE! concert tour — is taking her bad news in stride.
