Let’s face it: even the most novice Dancing With the Stars fan knows the exit to the rehearsal spaces are teeming with paparazzi on a daily basis. So if you’re a pro or a celebrity with a message to send, it’s an ideal place to get your photo taken and have it splashed across the globe.
Case in point: Leah Remini, who recently left the Church of Scientology, made sure she was photographed carrying an anti-Scientology book while leaving rehearsal last week.
Now comes a new photo depicting pro dancer Peta Murgatroyd kissing her partner, Pretty Little Liars star Brant Daugherty, in the exact same location, just days after being photographed on what looked to be a date in the park.
“Everyone who works on the show knows that area is exactly where you’re going to get your picture taken,” a DWTS source tells Wetpaint Entertainment. “If you’re trying to keep something like a new relationship quiet, you would never kiss someone there in full view of the press.”
But is it really a budding romance, or does Peta just want the world to think she and Brant are doing more than the Tango behind closed doors? We’re not sure quite yet, but it’s pretty clear she’s not trying to hide her affection for her new partner.
Worth noting: If Peta and Brant are dating, it wouldn’t be her first DWTS showmance. She previously hooked up with former pro and eternal hottie Maksim Chmerkovskiy. These days, Maks is reportedly dating supermodel Kate Upton. Has Peta moved on, too? We’ll keep you posted!
What do you think of Brant and Peta? Meant to be, or just for the show? Sound off below.
