This seemed to be the week of bobbleheads, for both men and women alike. Everyone needs to stop losing and start gaining weight, like now.
Go through these looks of the week and give me your picks for who looks BEST, WORST, and most WTF. Mine are at the bottom!

Karina Smirnoff is an insanely hot dancer on Dancing with the Stars who was once engaged to Maksim Chmerkovskiy (who dated Kate Upton for a few hot seconds). Pablo Schreiber is an actor who plays “Pornstache” (the creepy prison guard) on Orange Is the New Black and had a recent stint on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit terrorizing Mariska Hargitay. What do they have in common? Well, according to People, Mr. Schreiber hit on Ms. Smirnoff with a truly terrible pick-up line inspired by The Bachelor...and it sounds like it totally worked. From People:
“You could tell he was trying to figure out some kind of smooth way to go up to Karina,” an observer tells PEOPLE of Schreiber, whose wife of six years, Jessica Monty, filed for divorce just before Christmas.
His pick-up line? “Hi, I’m Pablo … Juan Pablo, that is. The new Bachelor,” he said, according to the source, in a cheeky reference to The Bachelor, which, like, Dancing with the Stars, airs on ABC.
Smirnoff laughed it off “but seemed charmed,” says the source, and the two stayed together during the rest of their time in the suite. They ultimately made their way to Pandora’s lounge, where rings were being gifted to celebs.
So just how serious was the exchange? “Pablo joked about getting Karina a ring right then and there,” adds the observer.
AHAHAHAHA. What? This dude must be charming as hell to pull that off. After seeing him on L&O:SVU, I wouldn’t fall for it (because of how effing terrifying he was.) Too bad he’s such a good actor!
I love pop culture references but I think his pick-up line is CHEESY AS HELL. But what do you think? Would it work on you?

Welp, she said she was going to do it, even though it’s probably cost her a job at Dancing With the Stars (the notoriously ‘family-friendly’ show that Sarah Palin wholly endorsed while her daughter Bristol danced): Karina Smirnoff has gone and posed nude for Playboy. Girlfriend, who’s best known for being super-hot, a wicked dancer, and former girlfriend of Mario Lopez, Karina hasn’t even yet attained the type of fame that Heidi Montag has, yet she’s already taking her clothes off.
I mean, crap – even Heidi didn’t spill all the beans on her body to Playboy, but that’s probably because I imagine that Heidi’s nether regions probably look like knotted, knobbly balls of sinew and plastic, all the color of rancid meat (sometimes? skin just doesn’t heal all that well after it’s been torn and stitched and cauterized so many times).
Well, hey. Good for you, Karina, for doing what you want, but I expect that you’ll toddle off into obscurity on those crazy dancer’s feet pretty soon. All in all, it’ll be alright – you’ll always have those Playboy pictures after all the sparkle and glitter has faded.

How much you wanna make a bet that these two will be
fucking dating engaged by the time this season of Dancing With the Stars is over with?

Here’s a picture of engaged Dancing With The Stars stars Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy taken on August 30th. Ten days ago. Today, Karina’s rep confirms that the couple are through. They will still be performing together on DWTS.
I wonder where it all went wrong. They recently announced that they were postponing their wedding until next summer due to busy schedules. ”Busy schedules” is often code for “trouble on the horizon.” I don’t know. Maks was always kind of a jerk — he’s the dude who implied that co-stars Lacey Schwimmer and Cheryl Burke were fat. Whatever.
Anyway, I guess this is more proof that quickie engagements don’t always pan out. They announced their intent to marry just six months after Karina’s split from Mario Lopez. Sad, I guess.
