A week after Playboy founder Hugh Hefner announced on twitter that Karina Smirnoff had posed nude for the May issue of the mag, many are still surprised and wondering why she made that choice.

Well, the Dancing With The Stars pro is explaining just that via excerpts from her interview with Playboy. “I’m fearless and love the adrenaline rush,” Karina, 32, tells the mag. “Sexy is the confident energy a person produces. Sexy is the comfortable feeling of being who you are.”

PEOPLE also reports that the higher ups at DWTS are not upset with Karina for posing nude. “They did know ahead of time and they still gave her one of the best pairings,” reveals a source.

In other DWTS news, TMZ is reporting that dancer Mark Ballas and American Idol’s recently eliminated contestant Pia Toscano are hooking up!

According to the site, the two went on a first date on Friday night. As for how the date came about, TMZ states it all started with Pia who developed a crush on Mark as they both shoot their respective shows on the CBS Television City lot in L.A.

Pia apparently had her eye on Mark for weeks and decided to give her friend a piece of paper with her number on it. That friend handed it to DWTS contestant Chris Jericho, who then passed it on to Mark.

Mark was said to have been more than receptive and even rescheduled a music video shoot so he could go on their date on Friday. The two are said to be smitten and plan to do it all again soon. A photo of Mark and Pia after their date is below!

Pia seems to be having a pretty good week as it was also reported she scored herself a record deal less than 24 hours after her Idol elimination.

According to UsWeekly, the 22-year-old New York native has signed a deal under Interscope Records, chaired by Idol mentor Jimmy Iovine, and will record her debut album right away.

“Pia is being signed to a deal with Interscope Records who are rushing her into the studio to record an album ASAP,” a source familiar with the contract talks reveals. “Starting [Thursday] night after the show, Interscope told her they wanted her and first thing [Friday] morning Interscope brass started calling every top songwriter and producer in town to get an album together and rush release it.”

There is life after being a Bravo housewife after all!

Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo has landed her own reality show.

Dina, 39, will star in a new series for the HGTV network. The series will follow Dina and the staff of her event company Design Affairs as they create lavish events in their clients’ homes.

“Dina is an accomplished interior designer and also runs a thriving event planning business — her Real Housewives fans will be very surprised to see this side of her,” said Kathleen Finch, general manager of HGTV. “Dina brings a unique set of skills to HGTV and I’m thrilled to have her join our growing team of expert talent.”

The fourth season of the Real Housewives of New York City premiered last night without the show’s break out star Bethenny Frankel, bringing us to the question – Was Bethenny missed? Well, an answer to that below but one thing was clear from watching the premiere, which is that some of the ladies clearly had an agenda set for this season.

Judging from the premiere, it appears that Jill Zarin will spend the entire season trying to convince us she is a changed woman except she is still the same and nastier than ever, while Kelly Bensimon badly wants us to believe she is sane – a hard task to prove when you’re bat sh*t insane. With that said, let’s get right to the recap!

The show begins with most of the housewives having new taglines in their opening credits. “Good or bad, I know who I am and I own it,” declares Jill. Um no you don’t. “I’ve always had opinions. Now people know it,” states Alex having discovered last season that voicing said opinions gets you more face time on TV. “I’m living the American dream one mistake at a time,” says Kelly. I don’t speak crazy so I won’t even attempt to decode what that means.

With the ratings of her TLC show continuing to decline, a new report states Kate Gosselin is worried about having to get a real job.

According to Popeater, Kate, 36, is going all out for the new season of her show in hopes that it will be a big success. “This season Kate has been told to bring her A-game,” a TV producer tells Popeater. “If her ratings drop to the 1 million mark this will be her last season, and then Kate would have to get a real job.”

Ratings for Kate Plus 8, her TLC show following her divorce from Jon Gosselin, has steadily averaged 1.6 million viewers per episode. A far cry from the staggering 10 million viewers that tuned in for the episode in which Jon and Kate formally announced their divorce.

“You are going to see Kate spend another night camping, but this time without Sarah Palin. You will see her explore Sydney, meet with aboriginals and even swim with sharks in an attempt to win back viewers,” adds the source.

Another source assures Popeater that TLC is still Team Kate. “TLC hadn’t really done ‘Kate Plus 8′ in a series way until now — it was just sporadic specials that people had trouble finding,” the source says. “TLC does believe in her.”

However, it seems Kate does have reason to be worried as the Monday night premiere episode of Kate Plus 8 only brought in 1.3 million viewers.

In other Kate news, TMZ is reporting that Kate is being sued after failing to pay $10,476 for marriage counseling services back in 2009.

Despite getting her divorce from Jon finalized in December 2009, it seems Kate had previously requested that one of the Pennsylvania-based counselors of Creative Energy Options company “fly to Los Angeles to perform marriage counseling, then refused to pay for service or travel fees.”

The company’s president, Dr. Sylvia Lafair, told TMZ they had reached out to Kate several times, but that she has yet to make any payments.

The Real Housewives of DC
It’s a wrap… officially.

Two weeks after RadarOnline first broke the news, Bravo has now confirmed the Real Housewives of DC has been canceled, making this the first time ever the network has canceled a housewives franchise.

“We had an amazing season and we told stories that were unique to any other in the franchise,” Bravo’s Andy Cohen told the Washington Post on Thursday. “I wish all our DC Wives the best and hope to work with them again in another capacity.”

Below are some reactions from the DC Housewives -

Stacie Turner – “The past 18 months has truly been an amazing adventure! Thanks so much for your support. The best is yet to come…….” she tweeted.

Mary Amons – “Bittersweet day, memorable fun ride w/ @catommanney @THErealLyndaDC @stacieturnerdc & the Bravo family! Exciting projects ahead! #staytuned,” tweeted Mary.

Lynda Erkiletian – “we are too dignified ! LOL ..its not a bad thing! Xo L,” she tweeted.

Cat Ommaney – “So the milk was spilt,and we cried over it..(meow meow) and then the next show..mmm well thats going to be ‘creme de la creme’!!..” tweeted Cat.

As for Michaele Salahi, she promises her next project will be “wild and entertaining,” perhaps referring to her upcoming appearance on Celebrity Rehab.

While the DC Housewives averaged decent ratings, 1.4 million viewers, it didn’t quite compare to its counterparts, for example the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills which averaged over 2 million viewers for its freshman season. It seems the final straw for Bravo was the report that the DC Housewives had banded together and refused to do the show if the controversial Michaele was allowed back on by the network which wanted her to return.

Michaele also spoke to PEOPLE, confirming that her castmates did indeed want her off the show. “I sort of knew this was going to happen,” Michaele tells PEOPLE. “The other women didn’t want me back on the show, and [Bravo executive] Andy [Cohen] stood his ground and said there wouldn’t be a show without me on it. I’m grateful to him for that.”

This cancellation of the DC housewives could also spell trouble for the Real Housewives of Miami, which averaged a poor 1.1 million viewers this season.
