Pia Toscano -- Here I Come, Mark Ballas!!!

Pia says she thinks we gave her good advice when she was in our office last week -- stand next to someone famous to fuel the rumor mill.

Pia and Mark hit it off so well during their date in L.A. on Friday, that Mark invited Pia back to the West Coast for another round of tonsil hockey ... and TO MEET HIS MOTHER.

No pressure.

Why in the heck is TMZ makign such a big frickin deal out of this story? So what? Wow...2 people in Hollywood dating. First off, he's still kind of a nobody. Yes he's on Dancing but I seriously doubt most people would recognize him on the street. Secondly, they are making a way bigger deal out of Pia than what she is. Yes, she is a talented singer, btu then ALL of the contestants on there are! Basically, she had no flavor to her performances and singing the same ballad every week is what killed her. Let's have a little originality please. Personally, I won't be buying her album because there isn't anythig special to her...nothing really unique. Most of the other contests have something about them that is way more appealing. TMZ...please drop the constant updates with these two. They just aren't intersting enough to bother.

The guy that tried to interview her, should be canned. He had her alone and thats the best he could do with the questions. Fail.

I like the idea that TMZ is keeping this fab babe in the news. She's both hot and talented. If you check out the list of past AI winners, they mostly suck and their cheesy cover song careers go nowhere. But this girl is meant for far better things it seems. And that's why AI's giving her some love in the headlines.

She is a fox and she can do way better than this dork. TMZ played matchmaker for some stories and pics. She needs to be with a hunk A lister, not some guy from DWTS who is ugly.

she is not dating mark. 100% CONFIRMED. Someone on this board was claiming she was engaged to a carlos. They might want to check and she if she is still engaged or in a relationship because that might have changed. The girl can sing and is good looking, why is tmz hammering this fake story?

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 began.

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 a 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 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 Adedapo... 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 who should be awarded cash and prizes or something from every show that they perform on $$$ $$$ $$$ $$$ $$$ $$$ $$$ $$$ $$$ $$$ $$$ $$$

Why were we forced to watch what is basically a gong-show at the beginning of the season... when these people could have been eliminate a long time ago and saved us all the misery of watching them display what is obviously little talent or ability not to speak of the assets to become an Idol.

This would have been a much better show if once you reach the 12 or 15 finalists that you spent a little money out of your tight pockets, and buying them clothes... for the rest of their performances... And so the less fortunate contestants will be on equal playing field... as far as maintaining a more professional image... this would also reflect on the overall image of the show... and create a more positive atmosphere."

Once a contestant reaches a certain level... every performance after that they should receive some sort of a reward... a new wardrobe... maybe some lessons... professional help to create a new image, music lessons or a musical instrument - trip for two people.. singing lessons. Maybe some recording time at a nice studio - 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 the entire season. I had no trouble finding many nice looking Caucasian males from time to time on the show... even going as far as showing them with their girlfriends. 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 too fast... Get lots of legal help? You don't want to sign a new contract for too short of a time... or too long of a time for that matter... one very important factor is the amount of PUSH MONEY the company is going to put accelerate your recording career?? This PUSH MONEY is very important.

PIA... it's meaningless to have a record contract without the right support packages attached to it... so as to properly propel your career.

Finally Pia... slowdown with your personal life...because the sheer celebrity grows... there's going to be more and more entries in your life behind the scenes... going to be scrutinized for everything you do good or bad. 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.

"Bottom line : surround yourself with real people, not ones who are afraid to tell you the truth, when they speak to you... please trust in their judgment, thank and reward their sincerity. One of the biggest mistakes so-called celebrities make is surrounding themselves with "yes" people."

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!!!"
