Say it isn’t so! Are you sad to see Karina go?

While fans of Dancing with the Stars will still get to watch Cheryl Burke and Derek Hough swing their sexy hips on the show next season, it’s been confirmed that they’ll be missing the familiar faces of Karina Smirnoff, Lacey Schwimmer, host Samantha Harris and Jonathan Roberts.

The news about Karina’s definite departure came after a fan asked if she would be on the show this season over Twitter. To which Karina replied, “Unfortunately, no. xoxo.” An additional source reports the scoop to Hollywire.

As far as celebrity dancers, the grapevine is buzzing that Pamela Anderson might be showing off her moves on stage next (and trust us, we’re sure she has many!)

The season premiere of DWTS is March 22, 2010, but we’ll find out the complete cast during The Bachelor season finale on March 1.

Will you miss Karina?
