Ukrainian professional ballroom dancer and 'Dancing with the Stars' champion professional partner in the thirteenth season Karina Smirnoff, 30 and her pro baseball player fiancé Brad Penny, 33, are calling off their engagement of more than a year, E! Online reports.
In October, the duo "postponed" their wedding, according to a source. At the time, they were "still together, but [had] conflicting schedules." There were already some rumblings that there was trouble in paradise when the "DWTS" champion and her MLB Pitcher fiance delayed their wedding earlier this year. At the time they blamed conflicts with their schedules for making it difficult to plan the grand affair. It is also clear from the fact that she never once mentioned Penny on stage and Penny was never spotted in attendance.
It is the second time this kind of incident happened. Before coming close with Detroit Tigers player Brad Penny in 2009 she ended her relationship with fellow DWTS pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
However Smirnoff has some other exciting news! She is filming an episode of upcoming new ABC sitcom "Don't Trust the B**** in Apartment 23" (we've seen the pilot, BTW, and we loved it). "The exciting news is happening today! I'm shooting an episode of ABC's new show Apt23! Can't wait!" she tweets.
