Karina Smirnoff Is Leaving Dancing With The Stars

Karina Smirnoff is taking her leave from Dancing With The Stars!

After being a professional dancer on the hit show for sixteen seasons, Smirnoff took to her official Instagram account to announce that she is moving on from the franchise.

Last night, she said on the social networking service:

Many of you have been asking if I will be back for season 20 of DWTS and I wanted all of my incredible family to hear it directly from me. After a lot of thought and prayer, I’ve decided to focus my energies on some other exciting endeavors including adding author to my resume.

I have absolutely loved dancing for all of you for all these years and feel blessed to have been given a platform to put my passion for dance, choreography and creativity on display. DWTS has been a huge part of my life for the last 10 years and i will always have a special place in my heart for it. I am thrilled that now you will be seeing more of me in new arenas in the days and weeks to come.

My first book We’re Just Not That Into You – Dating Disasters From the Trenches was released today and I look forward to hearing from you as you read it! I love all of you so very much and couldn’t feel more grateful for your support in all that I do! #werejustnotthatintoyou.

Will you support Karina by picking up her book? Are you sad to see her leaving the show?

Karina Smirnoff’s Playboy Cover!

‘Dancing With the Stars’ star Karina Smirnoff poses in the latest issue of Playboy. Inside the magazine she takes everything off, and Hugh Hefner calls the spread “unforgettable”.

“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,” Smirnoff told the magazine. “To me, sexy is the confident energy a person produces. Sexy is the comfortable feeling of being who you are. Sexy is not just having beautiful lips, legs and arms; it’s beyond that. Sexy is soul.”
