Val Chmerkovskiy, Janel Parrish Dating? Lea Comes In And Steals Val’s Heart!

Val Chmerkovskiy and Janel Parrish dating rumors don’t seem to be slowing down any, even though the dance partners have said that they aren’t a couple. While Val and Janel seem to be doing a fine job tricking people into thinking that they’re hooking up (with all that amazing chemistry they’ve got going on), the two are more than okay with it. In fact, it seems that dance partners on the show who appear to have a romantic connection tend to get more votes. So, Val and Janel will totally keep playing up their fauxmance.

According to Access Hollywood, Janel absolutely played along when it came to her relationship with Val during a recent interview. However, when she was asked straight out, she laughed. “Everybody always wants to know… we are just partners. We are just focusing on the dancing,” Janel said.

And Val Chmerkovskiy knows all about that. Tonight, Val will be dancing with Lea Thompson, and he’s already got his flirt mode kicked into high gear (and so does she). During rehearsals, Val posted photos of himself and Lea, and even a video where Lea professed her love for him. Of course, people then wondered if Val and Lea were hooking up, but most people are starting to realize that this is a Dancing With The Stars thing… or maybe? It’s a Chmerkovskiy brother thing. Don’t forget about Val’s brother Maks and his dance partner Meryl Davis from last season!

Val Chmerkovskiy and Janel Parrish have been accused of faking their “love affair” for votes… but the two aren’t actually trying to trick people. According to The Inquisitr, Janel has a boyfriend (she’s dating Dead Love actor Payson Lewis) who is in full support of her time on the show. In fact, Lewis has tweeted his support for team “Janelskiy” on more than one occasion. That’s not a secret by any means.

And before everyone starts wondering if Lea stole Val’s heart away from Janel… no one on this season of Dancing With The Stars is hooking up! Everyone has a lot of love for each other, but that is as far as things go… for now.
