A couple of weeks ago, I watched Karina Smirnoff try on wedding dresses on “Say Yes To The Dress.” Sometimes I watch random shows on demand, and I was really surprised with how fascinating that show was. I ended up watching a few episodes. In Karina’s segment, she tried on a bunch of beautiful princess-y dresses and took a long time to make a decision. Her mom was kind of a bitch about the whole process. (You can see a clip here.) Karina has such a banging figure that every dress looked awesome on her. (Although it doesn’t matter if a bride-to-be is trim or not. All women looks amazing in wedding gowns, which is part of the appeal of that show.) Karina ultimately never wore the gown she chose, because she broke up with her fiance, Detroit Tigers pitcher Brad Penny, in early December. I think this is Karina’s second broken engagement, as I know she was engaged to fellow DWTS pro, the douchetastic Maksim Chmerkovskiy, before they split in September, 2009. Prior to that she was with Mario Lopez. So I may know nothing about this Brad Penny guy, but I do know that Karina likes douches.
Anyway Karina was spotted out on several dates with none other than Owen Wilson! We heard that Owen broke up with his baby’s mother last year, and that he’s been partying a lot recently. I would love to see him settle down, but I doubt this is serious. Here’s the story, thanks to Life & Style:
Owen Wilson had better learn the foxtrot — quick!
Life & Style can exclusively reveal that the actor is romancing Dancing With the Stars pro Karina Smirnoff.
“They’ve been out a few times,” a source confirms to Life & Style, on newsstands now. Adds a second insider, “They’re totally into each other.”
In December, Karina, 34, called off her engagement to baseball pitcher Brad Penny, while Owen, 43, split with partner Jade Duell in June 2011, just five months after she gave birth to their son, Ford.

Well from what little I know of Karina I like her. I think Owen is a player though. Who knows, maybe he’s ready to get serious with someone, but I doubt it. This might be just a Spring fling.
Karina Smirnoff is shown on 1-14-12. She’s so pretty but that makeup is not doing her any favors. Owen Wilson is shown on 1-15-12 and 2-26-12. Credit: WENN.com
