'Dancing' Host Sounds Off On Contestant Romances

NEW YORK (October 19, 2006) — “Dancing With the Stars” host Tom Bergeron sounds like he’s skeptical about the denials that two of the couples on the show are romantically involved.

Bergeron was asked on “The View” if he thought Mario Lopez was dating his dance partner, and Willa Ford was dating the guy she used to dance with before they were voted off.

His answer: “Of course they are.”

Asked how he’d know that, Bergeron said, “I hear things. I see things.” He didn’t get more specific, nor did he say if he was kidding.

In an earlier episode of “Dancing With the Stars,” judge Carrie Ann Inaba told Willa Ford that if she wasn’t dating her dance partner, she should be.
