Chelsie Hightower says Mark Ballas is still playing coy about his relationship with Pia Toscano, but she says she wishes them ‘all the happiness in the world’ and even spills some spoilers from next week’s ‘Dancing with the Stars!’

As one of Mark Ballas‘s closest friends, Dancing with the Stars pro Chelsie Hightower knows when a girl has got his heart — so she gave reporters the real scoop on his new girlfriend, Pia Toscano, at the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G launch at the Beverly Hilton April 20.

“I think [Pia] is a great girl and he is a great guy,” Chelsie said. “She’s adorable. Mark is my best friend, so I wish him all the happiness and all the success in the world. If he is happy with her, then I am happy for him.”

Interestingly enough, Chelsie admitted Mark, 24, isn’t confessing his true feelings for the 22-year-old American Idol alum just yet.

“He says they are just friends,” Chelsea said, smiling. “…But you never know!”

As for Pia’s performance on Dancing with the Stars next week, Chelsie dished some insider scoop.

“On Tuesday night, he will be dancing alone to her — it won’t be part of the competition,” she explained, adding. “Mark will be dancing with Karina during it.”
