Dancing With the Stars pro Karina Smirnoff may not have made it all the way to the end on Season 15 All-Stars, but it looks like she's shooting for the stars outside the ballroom.

As we recently reported, Karina is set to star in a movie written and directed by her Season 12 partner Ralph Macchio. You can also catch her on the small screen tonight, December 11, on ABC's Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23.

The edgy sitcom features James Van Der Beek (yes, the James Van Der Beek) as a fictionalized version of himself. In the Don't Trust the B---- world, fictional James is a contestant on — you guessed it! — Dancing With the Stars. It's a rather clever bit of cross-promotion that's been pulled off with finesse so far.

This week, Karina will appear on the show as a version of herself who's paired with Dean Cain; they will be James' rivals. Even if you've never watched Don't Trust the B---- before, we encourage you to tune in. It's a delightful, easy-to-follow show, and it should be fun to see a comedic ballroom battle.

Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 airs on Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT.
