ABC Report May Fire Karina Smirnoff Over Playboy Shoot

Following Hugh Hefner's tweet that teased Karina Smirnoff  as the May issue cover of Playboy, ABC reportedly is frantic about the kinds of attention thats "Dancing with the Stars" will get. "If Karina Smirnoff posed naked, she can kiss her dancing days goodbye," a show's insider tolds  PopEater. "I hope Karina Smirnoff sake that this isn't true."

"DWTS", despite skimpy clothes sexy and  hot dances, is categorized as family TV.Karina Smirnoff, reportedly has violated the terms of her contract by posing nude for the cover without getting a consent from the show's bosses. "ABC publicity departments control the image of this show with an iron fist. It's a cash cow and they are not going to allow its reputation to be soiled by a dancer who wants to do Playboy," an ABC source said.

In fact, execs have applied the theory on host Tom Bergeron. "Just a few weeks ago, ABC PR stopped Tom Bergeron from doing a live webcast with an outlet they didn't approve of. I can only imagine is going on right now after Hef's tweet," the source added.

Karina's issue of Playboy would be out later this month, possibly while she's still dancing on the show with surprise favorite Ralph Macchio. Rep of the pro dancer and ABC are yet to comment on the report. But it's not likely that ABC will give Karina a harsh treatment because this season is featuring another woman who has posed for Playboy, Kendra Wilkinson.
