Will Posing Nude in the May Playboy Get Karina Smirnoff Kicked Off Dancing With The Stars?

It has been years since I bought myself a Playboy magazine. At one point in time I was a subscriber.

Seconds ago I learned of Hugh Hefner's tweeting of the fact that Dancing With The Stars' Karina Smirnoff will be on the May issue's cover.

And nude inside.

Karina is my favorite of the DWTS Russians. Along with her ex-fiance, Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Word is that Karina will be fired as a Dancing With The Stars dancer if it's true she get nekkid in Playboy.

Some sort of violation of contract deal.

Which seems just a tad hypocritical to me. Currently on Dancing With The Stars we have Kendra Wilkinson dancing. Kendra has been naked in Playboy. Holly Madison has danced on DWTS. Also naked in Playboy. Pamela Anderson has danced on DWTS. Naked all over the place, including multiple times in Playboy.

Methinks Hugh Hefner should have convinced Karina to do a Playboy photo shoot with her ex, Maks. That likely would have turned into an all-time Playboy magazine best seller.

A couple Internet buzz blurbs about this serious issue....

The San Jose Mercury News reported that an unidentified Dancing with the Stars insider told the Popeater website, “If Karina posed naked, she can kiss her dancing days goodbye.” ABC has not released an official statement on the matter.

According to AceShowbiz, by posing nude, Smirnoff would have violated her contract because she did not get consent from the Dancing with the Stars executives prior to posing for the May 2011 issue of Playboy. Smirnoff reportedly will appear on the cover and inside the issue.

Great post regarding this issue...I also find it absolute hypocrisy if she gets fired considering all the stars you listed that have been in Playboy, including the current season with Kendra Wilkinson.
