Former 'The Hills' and 'Laguna Beach' reality star Kristin Cavallari has been paired with Mark Ballas on this season's 'Dancing With The Stars.' Both are newly single, and on 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox) she addressed the rumors that the two were already dating.

Dorothy Lucey started the rapid-fire examination. "There are rumors about you and your partner ..." but before Cavallari could finish denying them, Jillian Reynolds jumped in. "He's with Pia, right?" she asked. Reynolds was referring to Pia Toscano, a contestant from last season's 'American Idol.' Cavallari wouldn't comment that, but definitively denied she and Ballas are dating. "Nothing is going on with the two of us," she said.

Former 'American Idol' contestant Pia Toscano on 'Good Day New York'Former 'American Idol' contestant Pia Toscano released her debut single, 'This Time,' in July, but what the 'Good Day New York' (weekdays, 9AM ET on Fox) crew mainly wanted to talk to her about was her relationship with musician and 'Dancing With the Stars' pro Mark Ballas. It's been rumored the pair are dating, but they've denied it.

Toscano said she and Ballas were busy, and just friends. "I'm on tour right now, he's starting his season, we're both very supportive of each other, he's got a wonderful album out," she said. "We're just doing out thing, we're focusing on our careers and we're good friends."

Pia ToscanoPia Toscano has yet to release her debut album, but the season 10 'American Idol' contestant dropped her debut music video this week, premiering the simple-yet-sexy video for her debut single, 'This Time.'

In the new video, the 22-year-old talent rolls around on a beach, frolics in the ocean and sings her heart out, throwing seductive stares at the camera and stroking her luscious brown locks.

From the looks of it, the video was made on a pretty low budget, but with a voice and a face like that, who needs all the fancy bells and whistles anyway?

The eliminated 'Idol' hopeful is currently touring with the American Idol Live Tour as she works on her forthcoming debut album, which she told AOL Music will be a "relatable" and a "pop album with R&B influence." "It has an edgy, soulful and powerful vibe," she added.

Pia Toscano, 'So You Think You Can Dance'Perhaps as a reminder that winning isn't everything on these reality shows, Pia Toscano was the guest performer on the penultimate results episode of 'So You Think You Can Dance' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX). She only came in ninth last season on 'American Idol,' but that hasn't slowed her down in her career.

She performed her new single 'This Time' and proved that your finishing place in a reality competition is not necessarily a reflection of your talent. You don't have to win to be vindicated that you're great, or to be successful.

But Nigel Lythgoe was quick to remind everyone that the real winner in all of this is dance. Caitlynn made a strong case for herself against the one-two leaders in the judges' eyes, Sasha and Melanie, but was it enough to earn her a spot in the finale?

Interscope

Growing up in Queens, New York, Pia Toscano always wanted to be a singer, and after auditioning for 'American Idol' five times she was finally granted a pass to the top tier of the 10th season of the Fox juggernaut TV show.

Toscano was a true contender on 'Idol,' hitting the highest notes with ease. But rather than fulfilling what many felt to be her destiny, the singer shocked the nation and judges Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson, and Steven Tyler when she was unexpectedly given the boot halfway through the season. However, all is not lost for this makeup-artist-turned-singing-sensation, as she recently signed with Jimmy Iovine's Interscope records. And with the recent release of single 'This Time,' we're sure Pia is well on her way to becoming a pop music mainstay. AOL Music spoke to the singer about her current tour, upcoming album and the current state of her love life.
