Karina Smirnoff’s decision to pose for Playboy aligns her with fellow “Dancing with the Stars” alum, such as Denise Richards and Pamela Anderson, who have also been featured as centerfolds.
Though the move generated some controversy recently, all is said to be well for the reality star. Amidst reports that ABC was angered over Smirnoff’s decision to take it all off for the men‘s mag, People magazine is reporting otherwise.
The resident champion of the hit dance-off competition actually notified the show prior to posing for the nude spread. An insider told the mag, “They did know ahead of time and they still gave her one of the best pairings,”.
The issue is set to sit newsstands next month.
