she was engaged to brad penny but i think they broke it off

SidneyJul 10, 2011

Karina will probably be better off with Brad Penny. Mario is a player and Maks seems like he likes men. Maks is always touching the M.C. on DWTS on the butt all the time.

Karina didn't have an "encounter" with Mario Lopez, they were in a RELATIONSHIP!

Emily Kozuk OldMay 18, 2010

If Karina is looking for a loyal man, one who loves his family and is just an all around good ole boy! Then Brad is the one for her!! I went to school with him and my brother played little league for years with him! Good luck! Love ya, Emily Kozuk Old

She`s better off with her Slugger, the shiney Penny! Baseball players are great lovers. Plus, Karina deserves someone who is solid and has both feet on the ground and Brad is all that.

Karina better off with Maks. Mario Lopez is a loser.

Your land line in Vinnitsa stopped working. probably was changed....Pz, hollar back!!
