Hugh Hefner may have revealed that dance pro Karina Smirnoff is revealing everything in the next issue of Playboy, but it seems her bosses don't like the sound of that, and may boot her from Dancing With the Stars because of it. Wait, we should all get to vote on this, shouldn't we?

"The May issue of Playboy is unforgettable with Dancing With The Stars' Karina Smirnoff on the cover & nude inside," Hef announced via Twitter on Wednesday, and while there's no confirmation from Smirnoff, the troubles have already begun.

"If Karina posed naked, she can kiss her dancing days goodbye," a DWTS insider told PopEater's Rob Shuter. "I hope for Karina's sake that this isn't true." She and Ralph Macchio have been very popular on this season's competition, too.

"ABC publicity department control the image of this show with an iron fist," an ABC source says." It's a cash cow and they are not going to allow its reputation to be soiled by a dancer who wants to do Playboy." Shuter points out that former contestant Kendra Wilkinson has been in Playboy before, but we'd stress the word contestant in that argument.
