Fixed Karina Smirnoff Leaving Dancing With The StarsIs Karina Smirnoff leaving Dancing With The Stars?! According to tabloid reports, yes! But according to Karina, no! Blogs reported that the dancing diva "announced" that she would not be returning for the show's 20th season. Sources claim that the problem "specifically seems to be concerning contract renewal, since most of the dancers are coming up on their 20th season. Plus, the show requires such a 110% commitment – especially considering that the dancers usually rehearse 14 hours a day, 7 days a week. There’s no time for these people to do anything else, or focus on their personal lives or their careers." Another insider also revealed that Smirnoff, who recently got engaged, wants to leave the show in order to spend more time with her fiance and perhaps start a family. But Karina is putting the rumors to rest. The DWTS pro took to her Instagram and wrote, "Tired of my words being misconstrued. If I have an announcement to make, I will make it personally. And I promise that it won't be during a Q&A. So no, these assertions should definitely not be in quotes and are just an attempt for attention. This is in reference to the article that came out of Denver after one of the shows with @DancingProsLive."
