Karina Smirnoff Playboy

It seemed all but evident that Kendra Wilkinson would likely be getting the boot on Tuesday’s Dancing With The Stars results show, after receiving the lowest score on Monday, but that was not the case.

Kendra was safe and unfortunately for boxer legend Sugar Ray Leonard, he and his partner Anna Trebunskaya were sent home.

Despite the somewhat surprising elimination, Sugar Ray, 45, wasn’t bitter with the results. “You know what? That’s life and I fought a good fight,” he said on Tuesday’s show. “I’ll cherish this moment. Good friends, good show. I love the spirit of the show. I love the people on this show.”

His partner Anna added, “We had so much fun. It was amazing. A boxer become a ballet dancer!”

In other DWTS news, Playboy has now released the cover of their May issue featuring dancer Karina Smirnoff. As we reported, Karina posed nude for the latest issue of the mag.

“As a dancer I’ve always embraced my body,” the 33-year-old Ukrainian born dancer tells Playboy. “I’m thrilled to show off my strong, toned physique in the pages of Playboy and celebrate my sexiness.” The issue hits stands on Friday. Photos below.

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.

In today’s very surprising news, Dancing With The Stars‘ pro dancer Karina Smirnoff will be posing for Playboy!

Playboy honcho Hugh Hefner actually broke the news on twitter Wednesday. “The May issue of Playboy is unforgettable with Dancing With The Stars‘ Karina Smirnoff on the cover & nude inside,” Hugh, 84, tweeted.

For the time being, Karina, 33, is remaining mum on her nude pictorial while a Popeater report states the Playboy spread might get her in trouble with DWTS.

“If Karina posed naked, she can kiss her dancing days goodbye,” a ‘DWTS’ insider stated. “I hope for Karina’s sake that this isn’t true.”

The reason? Apparently the folks at ABC feel having one of their dancers pose naked during an ongoing season could “soil” the wholesome image of the show.

It should however be pointed out that Playboy Playmate Kendra Wilkinson is currently a contestant on the show plus Holly Madison participated in the show a few years back. Also, show host Brooke Burke has appeared in the mag before.

The Popeater report does state the issue with Karina is that she will be appearing in the mag while the show is currently on the air. Karina, who got engaged to professional baseball player Brad Penny back in November, has also received some criticism from fans who wonder why she has decided to pose nude. Bikini photos of Karina below!
