Am I the only one who is having major Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy withdrawal ever since the All-Star season of Dancing With the Stars ended? I seriously miss those two, in a totally non-stalkerish sort of way. (I swear.)
This may sound really, really corny, but it was such a pleasure to watch them dance together, and that's why all of us who love them can't bear the thought of them not being a real-life couple. But even though their red hot chemistry was blatantly obvious to anyone watching them on DWTS, to this day, they still have to yet to admit whether or not there's more between them than a very deep friendship. (Man. I wish I had a friend like that.)
I've been keeping my eyes peeled for any sort of slip or clue that they may be together (because it's my job to be curious), and it appears as though Kelly may have offered a tiny bit of insight into the status of her love life right now.
While appearing on Marie Osmond's talk show back in October, Kelly admitted that she's a relationship girl -- and she's just not into the whole casual dating thing.
Watch the clip of her interview below, and then we'll talk about her comments.
Ok, so at the time of the interview, she was supposedly single, and then bam! A couple weeks later her supposed "boyfriend," actor Heath Freeman, showed up in the DWTS audience to cheer her on.
And if she and Heath are at all serious, then it had to be pretty uncomfortable for him to watch her on the dance floor with Val each week, which leads me to wonder if maybe Heath was simply there to detract from the fact that Kelly and Val are the hottest thing we've ever seen on television.
Heath was definitely rooting for her and supporting her, and even tweeted out a few messages asking for fans to vote for Kelly and Val in the DWTS finale. But after that, his tweets about Kelly suddenly stopped. (Weird.)
And that brings us to Val's Twitter feed, which has had a few interesting references to Kelly over the past couple weeks. (Ok, maybe I'm a little bit more of a stalker than I thought.)
On December 3, he gave Kelly the following shout out:
"Miss @kellymonaco1 #thatsmypartnerthatsmyfam"
So sweet -- and love that they're close enough that he considers her to be family. Hmm.
And then the very next day, Val posted a photo of Kelly with the caption #CommanderInChief -- and it appears as though the picture was taken in somebody's home. (If they're spending private time together at one of their pads, things have to be heating up, right?)
Gah. Will we ever know if the passion we all see between Kelly and Val actually exists between them?
Maybe not. But the clues definitely seem to speak for themselves, don't you think?
Are you rooting for Kelly and Val to get together and live happily ever after?
