Just because it’s Dancing with the Stars’ off-season doesn’t mean Karina Smirnoff is sitting on the sofa at home. In fact, she’s on her feet just much, recently hitting the Big Apple to host JCPenny’s New Year, New You Fitness event.

Wearing items from JCPenny’s Xersion and CityStreet Activewear lines, Karina showed off some killer dance moves to the crowd. “I’m excited to partner with JCPenny to showcase ways to feel great from the inside out,” she said.

She was less talkative, however, about DWTS’ upcoming 18th season. “I haven’t heard anything yet,” Karina explained. “I’m just as anxious and excited as everyone else.”

Another reality star at the event who’s also waiting to hear the fate of her next season? Princesses Long Island’s Chanel Omari. Although we’re personally hoping and praying Chanel and her wacky friends return to the airwaves, Bravo has yet to confirm the show's renewal. 

Still, Chanel had a great time bonding with her new bud, Karina. The two chatted it up and posed for pictures together in between sips of custom-made smoothies.

You know, while we can’t wait to see either of those ladies back on their respective shows, we’d totally watch a new one starring both of them!
