Pia Toscano Says Mark Ballas Just a 'Really Good Friend'

ABC News (LOS ANGELES) -- Recently eliminated American Idol contestant Pia Toscano has confirmed that she's struck up a relationship with Dancing with the Stars pro Mark Ballas. But is that relationship platonic, or something more?

Speaking to People magazine on Monday, Toscano said Ballas is "a really good friend, I guess," and that he's been "really sweet and extremely supportive." 

What about the date that she reportedly had with Ballas in Los Angeles on Friday, one day after her surprise elimination on Idol? Toscano tells People magazine they were accompanied by a group of friends.
