Mark Ballas, Sabrina BryanJust a week after rumors started circulating about Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff, we’re now learning of another Dancing with the Stars split.

Dancer Mark Ballas confirmed to Us Weekly that he and Sabrina Bryan are no longer a couple off the dance floor.  The two started dating last season when they were partnered for the show’s fifth season.

Although the former pair didn’t perform on last night’s results show (maybe things would have been a bit too awkward?), Ballas claims he is still friends with the Cheetah Girl.

So how about Mark’s roommate, Derek Hough?  Will he be able to drag out his relationship with Shannon Elizabeth for that much longer?  I think we’d have better odds of seeing Shannon actually produce some hip action.

Dancing with the Stars Couple Calls It Quits

Mario Lopez, Karina SmirnoffUPDATE:  Karina Smirnoff is now denying People’s report about a supposed break-up.  Maybe they just haven’t done it yet.  Meanwhile, you can read about another DWTS split here.

It seems like someone is now free to pursue another Mario…

After nearly 1 1/2 years together, former partners Mario Lopez and Karina Smirnoff have called it quits.  The two - who competed together during the fall of 2006 - eventually placed second that season behind Cheryl Burke and Emmitt Smith.

Although the two moved in together last year, the couple have been spending a great deal of time apart recently.  While Karina has been participating on DWTS’ Season 6, Lopez has been starring in a Broadway revival of A Chorus Line.  He will also conveniently appear on the ABC show’s 100th episode next week.  (I’m sure it was quite awkward backstage during that pre-taped performance.)

Up until recently, Karina and her current have had to fend off rumors about a possible romance.  (They said she already had a boyfriend.)  What will their excuse be now?
