Fame Images says that reigning ‘Dancing With The Stars’ champion (and former Playboy model) Karina Smirnoff took a break from her DanceFIT-KS Hawaiian tour, though I have no idea what the hell that means.
Point being, she went paddle boarding. But only after taking lessons. And good for her. Those paddle boards are like a loaded gun. I thought I could do it without lessons and was only out there for a few minutes before starting a huge fire. It was a classic lesson in hubris.

It was definitely surprising when Hugh Hefner went on twitter yesterday and announced that Karina Smirnoff, who has been on Dancing With The Stars for 9 seasons, would be naked in the May issue of Playboy. He’s 400 years old. How the hell does he know how to tweet?
But it’s true, both things, and it seems like Karina didn’t really think this through. Popeater says…
“If Karina posed naked, she can kiss her dancing days goodbye,” a ‘DWTS’ insider told me. “I hope for Karina’s sake that this isn’t true.”
The immediate response of ABC is that having one of their dancers pose naked during an ongoing season could “soil” the wholesome show’s image.
“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,” an ABC source tells me.
Aside from getting into hot water with family-TV fans and the network, I’m told that Karina may have violated the terms of her contract by posing without getting her bosses to sign off on it.
That seems pretty hypocritical considering they tart those girls up like Spanish whores, and because former Playmate Kelly Monaco was the champion of season 1, Pam Anderson was a contestant for season 10, and Kendra Wilkinson is a contestant this year.
But that’s too bad. Hypocritical or not, rules are rules and life is pointlessly unfair. Consider the fact that the word used to describe a lisp has the “sp” sound in it. That’s fucked up. It would be like if “stutter” was spelled “sta-sta-staa-ssss-stutter”.

‘Dancing With The Stars’ um, dancing … uh star Karina Smirnoff was on the Turks and Caicos islands this weekend with her boyfriend, Brad Penny, who is a pitcher for the St Louis Cardinals. That must be why he brought his ball and glove, and made her throw some on the beach in her bikini. Smooth bro. Smooth. Girls love that kind of thing, especially on vacation. You should take this time to show her how to throw a breaking ball, and don’t be shy about criticizing her if she’s not doing it right. She’ll appreciate your honesty. If she can’t get the hang of it, try asking if she’s stupid, maybe that was the problem.
