Ann Romney

Turns Down

'Dancing With the Stars'

Ann Romney was offered a consolation prize -- first lady of Rumba -- but after seriously considering it she turned down "Dancing with the Stars" ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the show tell us ... "DWTS" honchos approached Ann about the gig just after her hubby lost the election and she was "very interested."  You may recall, Ann showed up at last season's finale and gushed that she was a big, big fan.

Our sources say Ann and producers had several meetings to try to hash out the details, but Ann ultimately decided against it. 

A rep for Romney tells TMZ, "Ann Romney was approached, but she declined. She will not be appearing on 'Dancing with the Stars.'"

So how's her singing?

Ann Romney is great, the definition of class. Why would she want to go on this show and have morons make nasty comment about her? She doesn't owe you idiots anything. Good for her!

I agree.

AND she has * MS * and for all of those that do not know that, if she, for gods sakes falls or doesn't do perfect. Everyone that hate her will have a field day picking her apart. She is better than that.

Whats the matter, their favorite teabilly, Bristol, won't come back on? Maybe they can get Sharron Angle. They do need a right wing nutcase in the mix for me to vote against.

She wouldn't touch the hands of her dance partner unless his pedigree and financial status was verified.

Mrs. Romney has MS. A rigorous dancing show, with long hours of practice, is probably not possible.

Ugh just let the Romney's sail of to the Caymans hopefully never to be heard from again.
Besides, she has shopping to do.

I wonder if she ever dances on her hubby's face?

I wonder if whoever picks who gets invited understood that Ms Romney has ms. Certainly she functions well and the disease is different for each that have it. But I'm not sure she could even attempt such rigorous work outs that they claim dancers do to prepare for this competition.

That seems like it would be so beneath her. I'm surprised she even considered it.

Never seen the show but a 63 year old cripple wouldn't inspire me to start.
