“Dancing With the Stars” champion Karina Smirnoff has a giant, sparkly mirror ball trophy. Though she still has her other glitter ball, her engagement ring, she’s called off her engagement to fiance Brad Penny.
A couple of months ago, they postponed their wedding so Karina could concentrate on “DWTS.” While that certainly worked, it looks like the engagement didn’t. According to E Online, the dancer and the Detroit Tigers pitcher have split. A source told the site, “They are just two different people.”
The two have been engaged for a year, though Penny never showed up to the “DWTS” tapings. Karina, who was doing promotional work in Las Vegas over the weekend, would wear her ring on camera but take it off when the cameras weren’t snapping away. Their reps have yet to comment.
We wish you both well, Karina and Brad.
