Dancing with the Stars pro Karina Smirnoff goes nude for Playboy’s May issue and according to Hugh Hefner it’s going to be “unforgettable.”
Smirnoff is paired with original Karate Kid Ralph Macchio for this season of the ABC hit show and the two are tearing it up on the dance floor, but RadarOnline.com has learned Hefner prefers her on the pages of his magazine.
“The May issue of Playboy is unforgettable with Dancing With The Stars’ Karina Smirnoff on the cover & nude inside,” Hefner tweeted on Wednesday.
The 33-year-old Russian dancer is a five-time U.S. National Champion and has been ranked second in the world, but this is her first time posing for Playboy.
Hefner has been prominent on the set of Dancing with the Stars this season not only because of his work with Smirnoff, but his former girlfriend Kendra Wilkinson is a contestant on the show.
Wilkinson moved out of the Playboy Mansion in 2009 and married Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Hank Baskett later that year.
Dancing with the Stars airs Monday nights on ABC at 8 p.m.
