Karina Smirnoff must have NOTHING to do since being voted off Dancing With the Stars because she shows up at every event in Hollywood. Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail will keep Karina away from a party with the paparazzi.
I caught up with Karina at the Esquire House in the Hollywood Hills recently. She’s always friendly and sweet, and we talked about relationships in Hollywood and what it takes to succeed.
Karina talks DWTS, Jennifer Grey, Florence Henderson and relationships here:
I bumped into Karina again at the Ubisoft launch party for Just Dance 2 at Las Palmas. She was just-dancing up storm with her DWTS co-stars Brandy Norwood and Audrina Patridge. The three ladies seemed to genuinely get along and have fun while hanging out. I’m extra impressed with Brandy, as she and her baby brother Ray J kept their cool even when Sexcetera’s Scott Potasnik and I cramped their style by taking up nearly half the space at their specially reserved VIP table. It must have been all the free cocktails keeping everyone so merry. Sorry, Brandy!
A few nights later I spotted Karina again, this time at Mark Salling’s album release party at the BBM Lounge. I would have stuck around to chat but the doormen were nuts and acting a little too “Hollywood” for me. I wish I had video of some of these extreme Hollywood door guys. It’s actually comical to watch them sort the “somebodies” from the “nobodies.” Thankfully, this humble little blog gets me in the door. Well, that and my super important R-List status.
Keep it real!
