American Idol Love Stories
Paul McDonald & Nikki Reed, Casey Abrams & Haley Reinhart and Pia Toscano & Mark Ballas are all rumored to be dating couples, stemming from American Idol.
They say love is fleeting, but when you put it under the intense magnification of the celebrity microscope it makes it even more fragile. This season on American Idol we have seen love (allegedly) blossom for a few of the contestants (Paul McDonald & Nikki Reed, Casey Abrams & Haley Reinhart, Pia Toscano & Mark Balls). The question is will it last? And what will last longer, their fame or the love they found pursuing it.
First up is Paul McDonald. He was voted out of American Idol yesterday, but has made a lasting impression and is already rumored to be dating Nikki Reed the actress from the Twilight movies (BTW Nikki is a writer too. When she was just a kid she wrote a powerful movie called “Thirteen” that she also stared in). Paul met Nikki on the red carpet event for the movie Red Riding Hood. At the time she introduced herself and after a picture and a short conversation she leaves and Paul turns to the camera and asks if she is a famous movie star? He also says he would like the talk more with her. Reports have it that he has gotten his wish. The two supposedly have met and a relationship has blossomed. Paul being voted out of American Idol might help him in that he will have more time to spend with her, but I have a feeling any guy who dates her better have a career and Paul’s is still very uncertain. Can Paul McDonald and Nikki Reed’s love last through the American Idol tour and the pressure of him getting a record deal, recording an album and trying to forge a music career? Only time will tell.
Pia Toscano is another cast off idol member getting her groove on. Rumor has it that she told a friend that she liked Mark Ballas from Dancing with the Stars. That person knows Chris Jericho and Jericho got Pia’s number to Mark. They have been seen out a few times together. Both have been very complimentary of each other, but say things are just causal right now.
We may have seen the signs of one other budding romance during Thursday’s American Idol results show. There have been rumors that Casey Abrams and Haley Reinhart had started a relationship. During the show, when Haley was again set to the bottom three, Casey was there at her side during the commercial breaks supporting her. During another break she walked across the stage to be near him. He purportedly even whispered “I love you” to her at one point and the two seemed to be very flirty and into each other. I almost feel sorry for Haley here. It is nice if she found a connection with Casey, but this just gives the angry tweens that watch the show and vote the girls out another reason to hate her.
Hollywood romances are often very short lived. It will be interesting to see how these American Idol love stories play out in the coming weeks and months. We wish them all well.
