Mark BallasIt was the very definition of a whirlwind romance, and sadly it looks to be over. According to, the 'American Idol' castoff Pia Toscano and her 'Dancing With the Stars' boyfriend Mark Ballas have called it quits.

Toscano is quoted as saying, "You know, he is so busy and I am so busy, we really are just friends! He is a wonderful person, who comes from a wonderful family! I'm really rooting for him..."

The relationship was nothing if not brief. Speculation that the two were dating first came about after Toscano was eliminated from 'American Idol' on April 7 and they were spotted having dinner together in Los Angeles. Fueling the fire more, reports surfaced that Toscano dumped her boyfriend of four years, Calros Nunez, for Ballas.
