"The May issue of Playboy is unforgettable with Dancing With The Stars' Karina Smirnoff on the cover & nude inside." Hefner, the magazine's founder, tweeted
Tuesday. Hefner has made other big announcements via Twitter in the past, including his engagement
to Crystal Harris
A rep for the magazine confirmed Hefner's tweet and said that images of the cover will be available as soon as next week. Smirnoff's rep didn't immediately respond to TVGuide.com's request for comment.
Smirnoff, who joined Dancing
in its third season, has taken it all off before: She posed nude in 2009 for a PETA ad
, which noted that she'd "rather dance naked than wear fur."
