Dancing With the Stars partners Kelly Monaco and Val Chmerkovskiy had undeniable sexual chemistry on the show, but could it be that the steamy connection from the ballroom floor has made its way into a full-on relationship outside of reality TV?
The smiling duo were spotted linking arms together in New York City this morning, possibly giving fans what they'd been hoping for since the first episode of this last season—a Kelly and Val love affair.
Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to be the case.
Monaco tweeted, "Thank you all so much for your support throughout the past few months. I had such an amazing time. GMA tomorrow with @ and crew!!!" Darn it!
Kelly cleared up the relationship rumors last night during the finale of Dancing With the Stars.
"Listen, I hope everybody can have friendships like this," she told Brooke Burke-Charvet, who actually asked what was going on between them. "I mean, this is what it is. It's a foundation of an amazing friendship. I know you're laughing, but it's true!"
"This is what it is: It's unconditional love for each other, whatever that label is," Val further explained. "It doesn't have to be boyfriend-and-girlfriend. It's a relationship that I cherish. She can rely on me and I know I can rely on her."
