Dancing's Karina and Maksim Start Planning Wedding for This Year
Dancing With the Stars' Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy have their dance cards full for the new season, but somehow the two are making time to plan their wedding.
"We started talking about it and figuring out when and where we're going to have it," Smirnoff told Usmagazine.com. "But there's so many family members that have a say that we got to try to make sure that everyone will be happy. But we think it will be sometime before the end of this year. So, not so long."
The Dancing pros got engaged on New Year's Eve in Las Vegas.
Smirnoff and Chmerkovskiy wedding planning coincides with practicing their first dance (the Cha Cha) with their new partners before the March 9 premiere.
"She hasn't said a complaint and stays on the floor for like six hours straight," Chmerkovskiy said about partner Denise Richards.
Smirnoff says her partner, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, has an amazing personality. "He's super funny and super charming," said Smirnoff. "To have him come out and do something completely different from the computer world was a surprise."
