When last we saw Chartiers Valley High grad Allison DeBona on the CW's docu-drama series, "Breaking Pointe" last summer, she and not-quite boyfriend Rex Tilton appeared to be on the brink of a real relationship.

By the time the two arrived in Bridgeville shortly before the broadcast of the series finale, they admitted that yep, they were an item.

Here's a new poster touting the show and featuring DeBona and Tilton.

But promotion video for Season 2 quickly dispells any notions of happily ever after: "Rex and I are no longer together," says DeBona, 29, a demi-soloist with Salt Lake City's Ballet West dance company.

The popular series returns July 22, with new hopes, dreams, conflicts, catfights, injuries and behind-the-scenes preparation for "Cinderella."

"It's hard to be the star one moment, and not the next," says principal artist Christiana Bennett.

Tilton, 25, and Beckanne Sisk, 20, are among the young dancers returning to challenge the veterans.

Press materials also hint at screen time for the up-and-comers from Ballet West II, the company's two-year development program.
