Karina Smirnoff denies she and Mario Lopez broke up

Despite rumors earlier today that Karina Smirnoff and former Dancing with the Stars partner Mario Lopez had broken up, it appears now that it may not be the case.

Karina told People “We’re going on strong . . . For the record, I am not moving out. Everything is great.” She also said, “As much as I love and appreciate the attention, this isn’t true.” I thought that second statement was a bit of an odd thing to say. If people were wrongly reporting a break-up about me, I doubt I would be thinking about how much I like the attention.

Karina also told People that she had a bouquet of roses in her production trailer from Lopez, which makes me think that, they got into a big fight, she told a friend who then told People that they were breaking up, and Lopez has since apologized for whatever he did wrong.

What is it about this show that creates such off-the-floor drama anyway?
