When "Dancing With the Stars" returns, Karina Smirnoff will sadly not be there.
The brunette dancer won't be dancing. But she'll be behind-the-scenes "helping with choreography," according to E! News.
So far, the only new celebrity female hoofer is rumored to be confirmed as a contender is former pinup Pamela Anderson. Wonder if she'll be dancing with Smirnoff's ex fiance, Maksim Chmerkovskiy!
Season 2 contestant Tia Carrere thinks she knows the real reason Karina won't be dancing. And it may have something to do with Maksim.
