She dances with the stars and soon will be fox-trotting down the aisle in a gorgeous diamond engagement ring worth thousands! See all the shiny specs!
Karina Smirnoff got one heck of a consolation prize after she and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino were voted off Dancing With The Stars this season. Her hunky baseball beau, Brad Penny, presented her with bended knee and a 4.5-carat princess-cut diamond engagement ring worth an estimated $95,000.
Disco Ball statue? What disco ball statue?
The dancing diva debuted the rock on Saturday at the fifth anniversary party for TAO in Las Vegas, where Smirnoff explained that Penny popped the question back in October.
“I was in the middle of the show and had no clue what was cooking behind my back,” she told Us, adding that the proposal happened at what she thought was a business meeting. “Even after Brad got down to one knee and opened the box with the ring, it still didn’t register.”
Added Smirnoff: “I’m the happiest I’ve ever been and Brad is the sole reason for that.”
