karina smirnoff playboy cover 2 Karina Smirnoff's Playboy cover sneak peek   ooh la la“Dancing With the Stars” professional Karina Smirnoff has stripped down for Playboy. Her issue hits newsstands Friday (April 15), but we’ve got a sneak peek for you right here.

The 33-year-old stunner will be seen in the pages of Playboy dancing with a red ribbon twirling around her legs – and not much else. She says of her decision to do Playboy, “As a dancer I’ve always
embraced my body. I’m thrilled to show off my strong, toned physique in
the pages of Playboy and celebrate my sexiness.”

There have been rumors swirling that the family-friendly “Dancing With the Stars” may fire Smirnoff for her Playboy spread. Which is interesting because the show has never balked at having playmates grace its dance floor as the celebrity dancers.

What do you think, Pop2it? Hot Playboy cover? And should she get any “DWTS” backlash over the pictorial?
