DWTS’ Karina Smirnoff Is Engaged

‘Dancing with the Stars’ pro Karina Smirnoff had a big announcement this weekend: she’s engaged! Here she is showing off her ring at Tao Las Vegas. Check out that rock. Karina is engaged to baseball player Brad Penny.

“He got down on one knee and he opened the box and I said, ‘Thank you’, said Smirnoff of Penny’s Oct. 4 proposal.

Brad couldn’t make it to Vegas this past weekend, but it sounds like he knows how to make it up to her:

The strapping pitcher… sent her a hand-written note in a fortune cookie apologizing for his absence—complete with a stunning Everlon diamond necklace! “I’m marrying a Southern Gentleman,” said Smirnoff, who accepted her fiancé’s proposal following a year-long courtship.

Jewelry has a way of making things better, doesn’t it? ;)

Congratulations to the couple!

Kim and Kourtney Kardashian On The Red Carpet


Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, along with Karina Smirnoff, Brittny Gastineau and LaLa Vasquez celebrated Los Angeles Confidential’s Fall Fashion Issue at the London West Hollywood Hotel. I wonder if one of the Kardashian girls was on the cover.

Kim and Kourtney both look UNBELIEVABLE. All the Kardashian ladies are stunning. Kim’s wearing some crazy shoes but I love them! I love the whole outfit. Her makeup is a bit softer than usual too. What do you think about it? And Kourtney’s shoes don’t look as out there on first glance, but if you check out the thumbnail, they actually have neon yellow soles. I wonder who makes them — will yellow be the next thing like Louboutin red?

Alessandra Ambrosio, Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Lowndes and Karina Smirnoff were photographed at WILDFOX’s Fall 2010 Collection “It’s Witchcraft” celebration party at 1OAK in NYC.

They enjoyed the evening’s festivities which featured magicians, a Zoltar machine, candy stations and a kissing wall.

Lindsay’s been a fan of WILDFOX for some time now. Remember the vampire bag?

What do you think of the outfits? I think they all look incredible. I love Karina’s blouse!

Celebs Attend The ‘Big Game, Big Give’ Fundraiser


I’ve heard a lot of less-than-flattering things about ‘Transformers’ director Michael Bay, so here’s a good thing he did: before the Super Bowl, he hosted a fundraiser called the ‘Big Game, Big Give.’

Michael hosts it at his Miami Beach estate. It was the second one, and the director reportedly plans to make it an annual event. All funds raised go to The Giving Back Fund.

Plenty of celebs attended, from AnnaLynne McCord (above and first pic below), Jessica Szohr, Chace Crawford, Kellan Lutz, Joanna Krupa, Katie Cassidy, Ed Westwick, and Karina Smirnoff.

I guess it’s no huge surprise that Megan Fox wasn’t there- LOL.

What do you think of the outfits?

‘Dancing With The Stars’ Has To Choose: Maksim Or Karina?


The hazards of dating in the workplace… Things reportedly have gotten so bad between former couple Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Karina Smirnoff that ‘Dancing with the Stars’ producers may need to choose between one or the other, according to PopEater.

“It’s really gotten ugly between the two of them since the spit,” a friend of the chest-waxing dancer (you guess which one) told [PopEater].

Things must be bad: the two don’t even have to dance together on the show! This is the risk you take when you date co-workers, though. I also suspect Karina was on the rebound from her break-up with Mario Lopez, which is party why things have ended so badly here.

What do you think: should ‘DWTS’ producers tell Maksim and Karina to be professionals or choose one? And which one would you choose?

You can also vote for which one you can choose in a PopEater poll. Make your voice heard!
