Pia met a new love — Mark of ‘DWTS’ — in Hollywood! Should Pia be breaking her boyfriend’s heart for someone she just met?

Has Hollywood captured Pia Toscano heart and soul? The 22-year-old  American Idol contestant, who was voted off on April 7, is reportedly dumping her boyfriend of four years from Queens, NY, Carlos Nunez, for Dancing with the Stars pro Mark Ballas, 24.

“It seems inevitable to anyone with eyes,” a friend of the couple tells the New York Post. “They hadn’t spoken as often as you’d think once she made the final 12. She kind of played a disappearing act.”

Pia and Carlos, a 28-year-old caterer from Ozone Park, met about four years through mutual friends. Since they started dating, Pia maintained a shy attitude about their relationship, never wanting any PDA while out with friends.

Over the years they broke up a few times, but always ended up back together.

The night Pia was kicked off Idol, Carlos sported at “Team Pia” T-shirt as he comforted her family who were watching at the Roma View catering where he works.

But the next day, Pia was reportedly spotted kissing her rumored new beau Mark!

The breakup seems like it has been coming since Pia left for American Idol. When Carlos traveled to the West Coast to support her during her first televised performance, she spent a few hours with him, says the couple’s pal.

And when Pia flew to NYC last week, she quickly returned back to Los Angeles as soon as she could.

So much for Carlos, who once told the friend that he was confident he’d be with Pia forever: “We’ve been together for a long time. We have a strong foundation. If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be.”

Carlos wouldn’t talk about Pia when asked for comment by the Post.

Do you think Pia should be breaking up with Carlos for Mark?

I’m seriously dissapointed, really thought she had better taste than this. And what do I base it on, easy, every time he had a partner his hands are all over the girl. I’ve defended Palin so much, mom that is not daughter but for Sarah to sit there and have her daughter dance and then with Marks hands here, there, everywhere and Sarah CLAIMING to be a born again Christian, yea right, tell me another one. But anyway back to drop dead gorgeous Pia, NOT MARK, please tell me this is a mistake.

I’m personal friend with carlos and I know you infomation is wrong. They ate still together. Why would someone want to have there boyfriend chased around with cameras to get info on someone. The media has to make the rumors up, that’s why it’s called Hollywood!

This isn’t at all surprising. This same thing happened with Crystal Bowersox. Following her fifteen minutes of fame on AI, she dumped her steady boyfriend, went out and had her teeth and nose fixed, then threw in with some wannabe rock star. After all is said and done, however, both Bowersox and Pia wake up each and every morning and they’re the same people, I don’t care how famous and important they think they are just because a bunch of folks sent text message votes their way. Sad really what happens to values.

I love how they say “a friend” of the couple. If the person was a friend, they wouldn’t be saying anything, and how did they get these pictures? This “friend” is probably some girl she grew up with who is jealous and and this is this persons claim to fame. Pia is a beautiful girl with a voice like an angel and that makes girls jealous. Instead of being happen that a woman is getting ahead these girls just want to bring her down. This f

Whatevs. The person who wanted his 15 minutes here is MARK BALLAS. He wanted his 15 minutes to sell his d*mn CD that came out last week. This is all about publicity for the both of them.

This is so stupid, the girl is 22 and we don’t know what her life is like. He prolly wants his 15 mins, for all we kno she already dumped him. She has a career on the west coast, must be a slow news week! The girl is moving on, why is that a big deal?? Stay out of what u don’t kno.

It is none of our business who Pia Toscano dates, why, and for how long. Long distance relationships at best are difficult and until we have walked in her shoes we are in no position to judge.

This is no more than an example of how our society creates “idols” and then tear them down. It has little to do with Ms. Toscano and everything to do with making money through publication. We need to develop a little class and grant people privacy.

She is only 22, After 4 years, maybe she knew him too
well. Maybe her ex really does not support her to be
a singer. Maybe he wants her at home. If so nothing is
wrong with that. I would say for young people to go for their dreams if possible. #1 be true!
