| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Alas, it was only a matter of time. People magazine is reporting that "Dancing" pro Karina Smirnoff and her one-time celeb partner Mario Lopez have parted ways. The magazine cites a reputable source for the news of the breakup.

According to
"The couple, who met during 'Dancing’s' third season, never publicly acknowledged their relationship despite the fact that the pair were living together in Lopez’s Los Angeles home. A source tells PEOPLE Smirnoff is moving out of Lopez’s digs.

Smirnoff, who is now competing on Dancing’s sixth season with R&B star Mario, has been spotted recently with E! Entertainment personality Michael Yo. The two were seen dancing and canoodling at a recent event at Hollywood eatery Beso. " (SOURCE:

Lopez is keeping himself occupied on the East coast these days, starring on Broadway in "A Chorus Line."

Yo might be wondering, who is Michael Yo?

He's a "Hollywood expert" according to, well, Michael Yo.
From his E!Online bio, this little nugget should give you lots of insight into the handsome celebrity reporter:

"What's the Deal with My Name: I am the half-black brother with the Korean mother. My mom wanted her maiden name in my full name because she said she worked too hard pushing me out not to have her name in mine. Funny, it all worked out."
