But despite the sad news, there’s one person who’s convinced the dancing champion will be just fine.
“She says she’s doing great,” Karina’s dancing partner Season 13J.R. Martinez told Wetpaint Entertainment at the American Giving Awards in Los Angeles this past weekend. “I texted her and [said] if she ever needed someone to talk to, I’m here to lend one ear because I only have one. I can’t do two. And she laughed.”
J.R certainly knows a thing or two about tenacity, and is confident that Karina will make it through this difficult period.
“She’s keeping her head up. She’s being positive. She’s being strong. She’s an amazing girl, so I know she’ll be fine,” he says.
“She definitely is an amazing catch for the right guy out there. And hopefully the right guy comes along and treats her right and treats her the way she needs to be treated and gives her all the love that she wants because she deserves it.”
Because otherwise they’ll have to contend with the army vet?
