Congratulations to Karina Smirnoff!! Last night she was awarded the 2014 Outstanding Achievers With Learning Differences Award. It’s given by the Labs school in Washington DC to people with learning disabilities who have overcame them and are a success in their field.

ETA: Tomorrow Karina is attending a KIIS FM Purse party. You can read more here. Let’s hope we get pictures.
“Tomorrow is going to be like a girl heaven,” she describes. “Shoes, purses, drinks, massages … I mean, if you go to heaven as a woman, that’s where you go.”
When Karina is not hosting purse parties and raffling designer handbags, the 36-year-old is strictly business on the dance floor. The DWTS Season 13 winner insists she refuses to develop any intimate relationships with her dance partners.
“Absolutely not,” she says. “If you have a chemistry with your partner during the season, there is nothing wrong with it. But don’t go into it until the season is over. You see each other seven days a week. It’s not difficult to develop feelings. But once it’s over, it’s like they cut the umbilical cord. You have no connection to your partner unless you like call and talk. So I say absolutely not. So Ryan, if you and I are on the show together, I can’t date you during the season.”
Karina Smirnoff was interviewed at the 30th Annual AIDS Walk in LA a couple of weeks ago! She talks about the cause and Dancing With The Stars. She’s so cute as always.

Is it possible Karina Smirnoff might not return for this season of Dancing With The Stars? E Online updates us. Here is a take below. You can also listen to Tony Dovolani talk on the link.
The professional dancer might not be returning to Dancing With the Stars this season after suffering a “serious” injury during rehearsals on Sunday, costar Tony Dovolani, who was with Karina when she went to the hospital, told E! News after Monday night’s show.
So what exactly happened that led to Karina’s hospitalization?
“She went to wet her shoes so that we could have better traction…she slipped and ran into the stairs with her shin, her arm,” Dovolani recalled. “I was so afraid because I saw half of it, basically on her way down. I thought she would hit her face or neck or anything like that, so luckily she didn’t.”
*Lots of prayers to Karina and a speedy recovery!
Poor Karina! Let’s hope she’s going to heal up soon! From TMZ….
Sources close to the show tell us x-rays show she didn’t fracture anything, but just in case … producers are scrambling to find a replacement. Karina’s already been voted out, but she still performs in each show.
