Pia Toscano says she's 'just friends' with Mark Ballas, giggles

pia-toscano-ellen.jpgThe so-shocking-we-can't-stop-talking-about-it "American Idol" elimination of Pia Toscano has taken on a whole new life now that she's rumored to be dating "Dancing With the Stars" pro Mark Ballas.

Her would-be beau was charmingly quiet on the matter when we spoke with him after the April 11 episode of "DWTS" -- and now it looks as though Toscano is taking a similar route of dealing with romance-related interrogation.

She appears on the April 14 episode of "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," and the host manages to get little more out of her than a few giggles.

Toscano knows what Ellen is getting at before even mentioning Ballas' name, rebuffing her with an "I just met him" and a "he's a very sweet guy."

After a little more prodding, she concedes, "We're just friends."

Come on, Ellen. You can get more from her than that.
