karina smirnoff gi Karina Smirnoff posing nude for Playboy“Dancing With the Stars” fans, prepare yourselves to see a whole lot more of pro Karina Smirnoff.

The Ukraine-born “DWTS” star has posed nude for the May issue of Playboy and will be featured on the cover. On Wednesday, Apr. 6, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner tweeted, “The May issue of Playboy is unforgettable with “Dancing With The Stars” Karina Smirnoff on the cover & nude inside.”

A source close to the show tells PopEater that the cover could have a negative impact on her relationship with the ABC show. “If Karina posed naked, she can kiss her dancing days goodbye.”

We are kind of hesitant to believe this insider considering a former Playboy model (and Hefner’s ex-girlfriend) Kendra Wilkinson is currently dancing on the show.

Smirnoff is currently paired with “Karate Kid” star Ralph Macchio this season and is engaged to baseball player Brad Penny. The two are planning to get married in October or November.
