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?

60(+) year old contestants rarely make it past the half way point on DWTS. I'm not sure that she would have pulled in any viewers that weren't already watching, anyway.
Here are two that I want this year . . .
Ariel Tweto (Flying Wild Alaska)
Jase Robertson (Duck Dynasty)
GO BAKE SOME COOKIES, ANN . . .

Remember when TMZ said Queen Latifah and Snooki were going to be on DWTS, and that the show was going to stop casting so many D-listers? That was hilariously inaccurate.

Can't stand her and her phony son's that went to missionarys . The candy a$$'s might get shot in the real service.Alot of mormons are in the US services, she uses that as an excuse for her whimps not to go serve the country. The family is a joke.

I am glad she is not demeaning herself by doing that show. Also, I think her health problems would be an issue.

Ann Romney WAS a fan of DWTS until her hubby LOST the election. Now she doesnt need to make friends with the sheeple

Ann Romney isn't in need of money, desperate for attention, seeking to sell a book or get a talk show or a third rate star whose fallen on hard times. Why would she do this show?

The only consolation to the fact that you clueless ignorant fools elected Obama is that you'll be right by our side as this country continues its nosedive. The baseless comments here about the Romneys only serves as proof to the utter ignorance of Obama supporters. Remember, your kids will have to live in this mess you have created.
