Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy: Dancing With Their Lips

Betsy Waldman / March 23, 2009

Looks like Maksim Chmerkovskiy has some pretty smooth moves off the dance floor too.

The 29-year-old Dancing With the Stars hoofer and his fellow DWTS dancer Karina Smirnoff, enjoyed a little PDA while dining at  the Ivy restaurant in Beverly Hills on Saturday.

Apparently, nothing works up an appetite quite like a heavy-duty smooch session while waiting for your meal.

According to reports, Smirnoff and Chmerkovskiy got engaged in January. Nice to see that the passion still hasn’t dimmed—two months is practically an eternity in show-biz relationships.

Of course, Maksim is paired up with the notoriously difficult Denise Richards on this season of Dancing With the Stars, so he’s probably just ecstatic to be hanging out with any other woman.
