After sitting on the bench last season, Karina Smirnoff will once again dominate the dance floor on ABC's hit reality series Dancing With the Stars, a source tells In Touch. "She always wanted to be back in the spotlight," a friend says of the brunette beauty, who helped with choreography on season 10 but wasn't paired up with a celeb in the competition. The pal adds that the Ukrainian-born pro, who in the past partnered with singer Aaron Carter and Billy Ray Cyrus, has her sights set on boogying down with rumored contestant Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino. "She thinks he's cute!" the friend says. Perhaps love is in the air for Karina and the Jersey Shore stud - she once dated season three partner Mario Lopez and was engaged to fellow DWTS pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy. The entire cast of season 11 will be announced on August 30.
