Karina Smirnoff is not only about to take the stage with Maks Chmerkovskiy in Forever Tango. She’s also been writing a new book. Ok! Magazine asked her a little about what it’s about and here is how she responded.
“It will delve into questions people have often asked which I haven’t been able to answer,” she says. “It’s non-fiction with the stories where the names are a little twisted.”
So is this tell-all going to make Karina a few enemies?
“None of it is bad,” says the dancing pro. “It’s all fact. None of it is horrible. Some of this information is out already, some isn’t. A lot of times I’ve decided not to speak up and say certain things and address certain things and it’s not because I didn’t want to say bit, it’s because I wanted to step back and look at the situation and learn from it. Now that I have I’m ready to share those lessons.”
Karina, who has previously been engaged to baseball player Brad Penny and fellow DWTS star Maksim Chmerkovskiy, says the process of writing the book has made her look at life a little differently.
“The more you talk about it (your life), the more you realize,” she says. “The more you write the more you understand that people’s perception is their reality. It’s an interesting observation. I can’t say too much because I don’t want to give it all away but it’s a very eye-opening book for me while I was writing it and definitely for anyone who will read it.”
Cool, I can’t wait to buy this book. How about you? You can read the full article at Ok! Magazine. Don’t miss reading it because there is a brief mention about Karina’s new movie “Across Grace Alley” with Ralph Macchio as well.
By the way, stay tuned. Karina and Maks will be on Extra and Good Morning America on Monday to talk of their 3 week run in “Forever Tango”. They’ll also be on The View on Friday. For tickets, see this link. Here’s a little preview from Forever Tango….
