Karina Smirnoff To Pose For Playboy, Problems For DWTS?


Hugh Hefner let the Kat out of the bag yesterday, tweeting, “The May issue of Playboy is unforgettable with Dancing With The Stars’ Karina Smirnoff on the cover & nude inside.” Karina in Playboy means what exactly for the family-friendly Dancing With The Stars? According to sources, they aren’t too happy about this news. “If Karina posed naked,” says an insider, “she can kiss her dancing days goodbye. I hope for Karina’s sake that this isn’t true.”

Apparently, ABC’s hellbent on protecting the image of the show which, apart from a steamy Latin dance or two, is all rainbows and apple pie. Another source revealed, “ABC publicity department controls the image of this show with an iron fist. It’s a cash cow and they are not going to allow its reputation to be soiled by a dancer who wants to do Playboy.” Is that fair? More importantly, is that true? We’ll have to see when the May issue rolls in!
