I wasn’t even going to report on this rumor, but, I’ve noticed a lot of people believing and posting at twitter and elsewhere that Karina’s engagement to Brad Penny is off without thinking about it and instead believing everything they read from the media and internet as “factual”. E Online was the first to report about the engagement being called off (quote from the article below). But, until we hear from Karina or Brad on this themselves, I would take this news with a grain of salt. I mean…why would Karina wear her engagement ring at all (even for a photoshoot) if they weren’t still very much together?
“They are just two different people,” the source says simply.
It’s understandable if Smirnoff, who was doing promotional appearances in Las Vegas over the weekend, didn’t want to make a big deal about it. So is that why she was playing peekaboo with her ring?
Sources tells E! that Smirnoff would wear her engagement diamond during photo ops, but would remove it when the cameras were off.
In my opinion, this is another case (as Heidi keeps stressing) of “don’t believe everything you hear or read” on the internet or in newspapers until you hear it from the sources mouths instead.
Also, just because someone takes off their rings or doesn’t wear them always means something is off. I’m very happily married, but, I don’t always wear my rings because I don’t want them ruined by every day wear and tear.
