Mario Lopez and Karina Spend the Holidays Together

Now that the season of ”Dancing with the Stars” is over Mario Lopez and his dancing partner Karina Smirnoff can finally get some much needed R&R. The "couple" has denied reports that they are dating but we weren’t falling for it. Mario and his dancing queen Karina are currently in Mexico enjoying some Rest & Relaxation after spending the Thanksgiving with Lopez's sister in Houston.

According to People magazine Lopez revealed at San Antonio's Club Posh "We're definitely overdue for a break," while sitting knee-to-knee with Smirnoff. "I want to take a little time off, go to Mexico." By Sunday the dancing partners headed south of the border. In regards to their relationship Lopez called it, "a very special relationship. It’s very flattering when people want to see us together and like to see us be together," he said about the romantic sparks that viewers saw between the two. "We're great friends and very supportive of each other."

Mario and Karina made an appearance in San Antonio Friday night for the charity Any Baby Can, a non-profit organization that benefits severely disabled children. Lopez agreed to participate after one of his friends told him about her own disabled child who had been helped by the organization for eight years. We are a bit confused where this leaves of JC Chasez as we saw him with Karina hand in hand just last week.
