Russ At Idol: Diva Alert! Pia Toscano Now Has A Body Guard And A Louis Vuitton!

Fri, April 15, 2011 1:42pm EST by 28 Comments

Paul McDonald surprised some when he was voted off American Idol, but it was what happened off-camera that was most surprising! Has American Idol made a diva out of Pia Toscano?

One week removed from fan favorite Pia Toscano‘s shocking elimination came an equally shocking moment, when I saw Pia Toscano in the audience last night with her own bodyguard and $730 dollar Speedy 30 bag from Louis Vuitton. Talk about moving on up!

When the stunning American Idol castoff was on the show last week, she was living the dream like the other kids. However, now that she is voted off, she has a record deal, a new DWTS boyfriend in Mark Ballas and other perks that would normally be suited for Idol judge, Jennifer Lopez, rather then Pia Toscano.

Even Randy Jackson got in the game. When he saw Pia, he gushed like a school girl, pointing and stating, “You should be here, dawg!”

Pia took it all in stride, greeting fans and sucking up all the attention from on-lookers in the American Idol audience. Certainly, this was a far cry from last week when she was helped off stage by two crew members, physically and emotionally a mess from her unexpected elimination. Fast forward to this week — you know what they say — to be a star, you have to act like a star…which is one thing Pia has seemed to achieve in little time whatsoever!

HollywoodLifers, do you think Pia should embrace her inner diva or slow her role and actually achieve something before she gets too big for her britches? Sound off below!

This is Pia’s 15 minutes of fame. She should grab it while she can because, quite frankly, most of the American Idol contestants are forgotten very quickly. She probably will be too even though she has a nice voice. It took her four seasons to get on Idol…what does that tell you.

Of course Pia is pursuing Mark Ballas. She has nothing better to do than to offer herself to the highest bidder. She can’t go back to dull and boring Howard Beach, because she just looks like the local wannabe singer who was kicked off Idol early. So now she’s ho’ing around Hollywood, hoping someone notices her. America got it right. They knew this girl wasn’t the real deal, so they voted her off. She’s a waste of time and space.

Since when does owning a LV bag make one a diva? You all need to learn that it’s not the clothes nor accessories nor the bodyguard that makes one a diva; it’s treating idiot gossip bloggers like garbage that really makes a diva.

Pia is milking her 15 minutes for all it’s worth. She has no job and nothing to do with her time now, since getting kicked off Idol (except showing up on TV shows filmed in Los Angeles). She’s 5’2″, mediocre talent, and guess what? Hollywood is overflowing with girls who can sing, dance, act, and whatever. She’s just another face in the crowd. She was a judge’s favorite, obviously not a viewer favorite. I’m sure when her mommy brushes her hair before bed, she tells Pia how beautiful and special she is (LOL). Pia doesn’t have anything America wants, or wants to buy. As with all the Idols, these kids are popular and always in the news during the show, then after the show, 99.999% of them fade into oblivion. They have humiliating low album sales and no interest. America moves on. Only a fraction of a percentage, like Kelly Clarkson, Clay Aiken, Chris Daughtry, Carrie Underwood and Jennifer Hudson make it big. No one will even remember Pia once the finale ends and a new Idol is crowned!

Wow, can you spell H-A-T-E-R? Pia has TONS of fans who would love nothing more than to buy her first single. I guarantee it’s gonna be #1 on ITunes the day it drops. As far as longevity? Well, that remains to be seen. You are right about your AI statistics, but how ’bout giving her a chance before lumping her in with the rest of the AI losers club? If she does end up joining the ranks of the few who have made it after the show, this fan will have a front row seat.

This is just silly. Obviously a guy wrote this article if a Louis vuitton speedy bag all of a sudden is a reserved for celebrities and divas. Give me a break, and before you write check the latest news that she does not have a record deal yet as it is all rumors. This article actually made me laugh out loud.

That’s’ a terrible picture and the writer obvously dislikes her. She proved she could sing and she’s obviously a sexy Italian, plus she is sweet. Why do aLl these self conscious biatches so upset? She has a record deal and a louis, big deal. She has a new boy toy and could have any guy she wants. Obviously to go back to Idol without security like the ones still contending, she needs security. She could be a model!

lol… i love when people say about anyone, “could be a model”… there are a million models out there. it really doesn’t mean anything anymore. and there are A LOT of ugly runway models, not that pia is tall and anorexic enough to be a runway model. in any case, pia is beautiful compared to the average person, no doubt. i do think she has a little bit of an unnatural look though- bust, forehead, eyebrows, etc. but that’s okay… there is a place for her in the music world, for sure. i just think the indignation over her not having enough fans to keep her on the show is a little bit unwarranted.

Let the jealous haters begin… Obviously her new record label paid for them. She is gorgeous and could easily get a modeling contract also

My guess is this girl already thinks she is something else on a stick and since this is her FIFTH, let me repeat that, FIFTH time trying out for Idol she is desperate to get media and public attention any way she can. There is some reason she never made it before – she’s good by NOT that good maybe? A bodyguard? come on……like she is so recognizable – she definitely thinks she is more then she is.

interesting. i didn’t know she had tried out so many times before… basically, since she was 17? did implants and botox get her in this time? (why are so many young girls doing botox!?! her eyebrows are all askew from it! not to mention, it aged her. she looks 32, not 22.) well, her voice was good- i’ll give her that. i never thought it was as amazing as the judges would rave- but it didn’t matter, anyway. she’s kinda boring, but she could be good doing something somewhere (vegas lounge?).

not a frontrunner according to the producer… so, she will fade away for sure unless she’ll make headline like dating guys like Mark Ballas and having a bodyguard in tow…. Hey, Pia, America casted you off do not act like the biggest B**ch in the planet.. you have not achieved anything except for the sucking in the judges…

She IS a mix of both. She’s a shy, sweet, humble, beautiful, fashionable woman with an amazing voice who needs protection.

You got her right.
It took a lot of courage to face her stage fright demons and sing so beautifully.
She’s all about real strong family and religious ties.
So refreshing in these trite and superficial times.

You are right. Such a sweet, shy, talented girl that finnally got over her fear. She is not a diva. They have to protect her,once u are known, some crazy stalkers might decide to get a crush on you. They might attack you, or people can get so jealous and want to hurt u think of JHud family. So it is safe to get a body guard. But, she never act diva like. Love her.

In my opinion, America maded a big mistake. I would pay money to go see one of her performances, if she came here. She has all the star qualities, as a performer. Now the wolfman or skinny legs flower coat? I think not. If beauty, sexy, and talented sells? You go for it Pia! Make it while you still can, and heck with everyone else. Aloha to you and your future and mahalo for your great perfomances.

The difference is JHudson is a star. Pia didn’t make it past 9th place on Idol after 5 tries. Seriously, people, how can you even compare a diva wannabe with Jennifer Hudson?
