Looks like Karina Smirnoff is joining Lacey Schwimmer and Johnathan Roberts as a casualty of Dancing With the Stars. She will not be returning for the upcoming season. Does this have anything to do with her breakup with Maksim Chmerkovskiy? Maybe the show felt that having both of them on would be too awkward. Maybe she was the one that wanted off the show. I just think they are cutting professional dancers this season that they felt didn’t carry a big enough personality. Who knows.
