Dancing with the Stars pro Karina Smirnoff is brushing off rumors of a romance with her partner, R&B singer Mario.
The New York Post’s Page Six reports Smirnoff â€” who has been dating her former DWTS partner Mario Lopez â€” was spotted kissing the other Mario at a Mercedes-Benz Oscar viewing party at Four Seasons hotel in Los Angeles in February.
But Smirnoff is laughing off the speculation. “Did you keep that window open? By the end of the show, I will be pregnant with Mario’s baby!”
A rep for Mario (the singer) says: “They’re not dating.”
I didn’t buy this rumor for a nano second. I think Mario’s gay. I’m not accusing him of anything, but he makes my gaydar go up in flames. He’s cute but he doesn’t do it for me; and if I can’t eff him, I’ll just go ahead and say he’s gay for consolation.
Considering how everyone starts dating on “Dancing with the Stars,” folks have to make up these rumors in advance just in case it’s true.
Karrina’s boyfriend, Mario Lopez, is hotter than has been Mario. Karina’s not done hittin’ that.
