Mark Ballas to Pia: Come to L.A., Meet My Mama!

4/12/2011 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Pia Toscano is coming back to L.A. today for another round with Mark Ballas, and it's already serious enough for Pia to meet the mom.

Our spies say Pia is flying in from New York later in the day and will have several dates with Mark during her stay.  And they've already scheduled an evening where Mark's mother, Shirley, will break bread with the "American Idol" castoff.

TMZ broke the story ... Pia and Mark had a hot date last Friday and sucked some serious face.  Pia was angling to meet Mark for awhile, and slipped Mark her phone number using "Dancing with the Stars" contestant Chris Jericho as a go-between.

Mark, we're told, is "totally into Pia and thinks she's amazing."

As one spy told TMZ, "They're totally smitten."

Why would his mom want to meet a cheater? With all of the gay rumors I guess a cheater woman is better than a good man to momma. BTW, pia has made her appearance on thedirty.com

Well I'm sure it's obvious to everyone by now that the show is not really based on real talent or abilities... it's obviously politically based... and in my humble opinion I wouldn't be surprised if the winner was chosen before the show even begin.

It's more than obvious to me, that this show has an agenda. And that's to entertain middle America and pacify their spoiled and selfish tastes. This show truly needs to be revamped from the ground up. With the new judging system as well.

This show has gotten as bad as dancing with the stars... where you have Ralph Macchio... with many years of previous dancing experience and training including a Broadway musical under his belt pretending to be a novice dancer to me he's just a ringer.

I'm a musician... and songwriter... and in my humble opinion... that show American Idol already has three strikes against it.
The first strike was eliminating Karen Rodriquez... the second strike was eliminating Naima Abebapo... and a third strike was eliminating the incredibly talented Pia Toscano.

Questions for the American Idol bigwigs.

How can you pay judges millions of dollars to sit on their rear ends... and not reward a penny to the contestants $$$ $$$ $$$ !

Why are we forced to watch what is basically a gong-show at the beginning of the season... when these people could have been a laminated a long time ago and saved us all the misery of watching them display what is obviously very little talent or ability less more the way with all to become the so-called American Idol.

This would have been a much better show if once you reach the 12 or 15 finalists that you spend a little money out of your tight pockets by buying them clothes... so they would have a more professional look on stage while they're performing... by doing their caregivers and will more professional attitude as well... not the speaker given that judges and viewers a chance to see them in a more professional atmosphere.

Once a contested reached a certain level... every performance after that they should receive some sort of a reward... new calls... dance lessons... music lessons of some sort as singing lessons. And not simply sent home empty-handed.

On another note it's become more than obvious to me... that in their own little sneaky way... they've been doing some serious discriminating... as in the selection of contestants... well one thing obviously there were virtually no black males making the cut of contestants that had any visuals about them at all. It's a sad day and time when Randy Jackson is the nicest looking black male on the show for an entire season. I had no trouble finding nice looking Caucasian males from time to time on the show... even showing them with their girlfriends. But when it came to black males every time I saw one... he had ZERO sex appeal, and stereotypical looks. (bald heads & dark skin).

Furthermore in my opinion... none of this is a coincidence.

Finally I want to say to PIA please be careful signing a contract to fast... did lots of legal help? don't want to sign a contract is too long or too short for that matter... one very important factor is the amount of PUSH MONEY the company is going to put a new tube propel your career? PUSH MONEY is very important. PIA... it's meaningless to have a record contract without the right support package attached to it.

Finally Pia... slowdown with your personal life... there's a lot of selfish and jealous people out there that would love to just step all over you... or simply waiting for you to fail.

Before I forget... Pia get on some major tours.. open up for some major artists. "Write yourself some up tempo song's!!"

"To all PIA supporters out there, keep - up the good work!!!"

samantha,

she is not dating mark or stefano. However on tv she is claiming she has no bf and isnt wearing a ring. I think it is her management. Keep in mind, people from howard beach say she is super talented and pretty (more pretty without makeup) but she is very shy and not that confident. Maybe her current bf was in the right place at the right time. Others have claimed he is more of a best buddy. Either way, Mark and Stefano are both much better looking.

Dear Mark, if you are gay, stop using women to cover it. Everyone knows you are super gay, and there is nothing wrong with it, just don't wait 40 years like Ricky Martin to admit what everyone knows.
