Mario Says No Affair with Karina Smirnoff, Thinks She’s Sexy

R&B singer and former ‘Dancing With The Stars’ participant Mario says nothing happened between him and his dance partner Karina Smirnoff – but he does admit she is sexy… Rumors of a romance between the “Music For Love” singer and Smirnoff ran ramped throughout his time on Dancing With The Stars which ended it’s sixth season in May. One particular rumor gained the most traction in March when the two were reportedly spotted kissing and ‘making out’ outside the Los Angeles Four Seasons Hotel. Mario says “I didn’t expect all these rumors to start because our chemistry on the dance floor was just fiery and I guess we did our job.” To many fans, Mario may have been doing his job too well as it seemed like something else was going on behind the curtain. In a recent interview with Singersroom, Mario expresses his admiration for his partner stating “I think that she’s a very sexy woman. She’s obviously sexy I think,” but he also sees how their chemistry could be misconstrued as being something more – “When you see something like the rumba, which is a very sensuous, sexy dance, it shows the relationship between two people up there dancing. You can’t help but to think that they’re somewhat into it because that’s just what they sell.” Mario, who is currently on tour promoting his latest album “Go” and recently launched Do Right Foundation also says “I appreciate her talent and what she does in her art just as much as she appreciates what I do in my art” of his former partner.
