DWTS’ Karina Smirnoff Posing Nude For Playboy


Karina Smirnoff will pose nude in the May issue of Playboy and grace its cover.

Who broke the naked news about the Ukraine-born Dancing with the Stars pro?

Hugh Hefner, naturally.

“The May issue of Playboy is unforgettable with Dancing With The Stars’ Karina Smirnoff on the cover & nude inside,” the Playboy founder, tweeted on Wednesday.

Playboy won’t be the only 2011 milestone for Smirnoff, who’s partnered on this season’s DWTS with front-runner Ralph Macchio: She’s getting prepped to be a first-time bride!

Last November, Smirnoff got engaged to baseball player Brad Penny, who popped the question with a $95,000 ring. Smirnoff said they’re planning on a wedding in “November or October” 2011.

“We are still figuring out when and where and how big or small,” she said. “Our guest list is already growing!”

Will this end her days on DWTS?

It might. It is causing people backstage at the hit family show to freak out.

“If Karina posed naked, she can kiss her dancing days goodbye,” a ‘DWTS’ insider said immediately after hearing of Hef’s announcement on Twitter. “I hope for Karina’s sake that this isn’t true.”

    How is this a threat to her status on the show? They’ve had a LOT of celebrity contestants who have appeared in Playboy. Joanna Krupa, Kristy Swanson, and current contestant Kendra Wilkinson, who’s a celebrity ONLY because of Playboy-related things, come to mind. (I don’t watch the show, so forgive me if Swanson wasn’t on it. I know she was a “star” on Skating with the Stars, to the tune of stealing her partner from his wife.)
