'Modern Family' creator to Ann Romney: We'll let you guest, if ...

(CNN) – It's not every day a self-professed fan of "Modern Family" gets an offer to guest star, but series co-creator Steve Levitan has extended such an opportunity to Ann Romney–should one major political development occur.

Ann, the 63-year-old wife of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, revealed to "Entertainment Tonight" that the Emmy-winning ABC comedy is her favorite show on TV.

    Funny, the Show said they would let Ann on the show to officiate the gay marriage. Sure she is still thinking about that one.

    @M, I feel the same way :(
    That being said, if this non working wife thinks people don't like her now just wait until she becomes a TV celebrity (like the AK mutang and her trashy family)
    She will really become the but* of every imaginable joke. Not that she and that husband of hers aren't already!

    Anne Romney, does your husband support, and will he advance, the LILY LEDBETTER Fair Pay Act?

    I could not care less if Mitt Romney will "work hard". President Obama works hard and delivered this crucial advancement for American families.

    Nice. I hope they make the same offer to Michelle after Ann turns them down.

    Anns a great Mother, Wife, and Grandmother. To villify this woman shows the desparation of the dem party. If Mother Teresa ran for office she's be brutalized by the dems. What class!

    Amnesty Ann gave her best performance to date last night. Her speech was so FICTIONAL it was almost believable but in all her planning and rehersals, she forgot one important thing – we are not stupid and we know life hasn't been as difficult and chaotic as she wants us to believe. Ann has never, nor will she ever, experience what it's like to be a mother without nannys, cooks, "profolios", stocks, rich parents and in-laws. All she's done is HELP raise five spoiled, lazy brats who were breeding while others were bleeding, but just like dear old dad, they don't care about that FACT. There are many reasons Ann could never fill the role of FLOTUS, but the biggest would be because you actually have to care for ALL Americans and not just the ones in her clan, and from what I've witnessed, she's just NOT capable. However, I will give her points for her bright red dress and lipstick. Quite attractive.

    Yes, and Michelle Obama is all of those things (minus the grandmother) too, but that didn't stop you and your racist bunch of trash from calling her mean names and even going so far as to suggest she be "lynched". FYI: Don't expect me and many others to forget that.

    She should have kept her day job, instead of jumping in with both feet into the presidential race. What makes you think "dems" are behind the offer, anyway? Look up this word, solipsism. It is a word that describes what you wrote.

    You can't believe anything this family says! She is just pandering, probably looking at polls that show that Modern Family is consistently in the top shows, so what do they do? Pretend they watch that show! Give me a break! Note to show creater: please have her on AFTER they lose the elections, thanks.

    Sorry, I meant to type "creator." And another thing: they pretend they have bought items at Costco! People, this pandering family pretends they shop in such a store, in their great effort to TRY to link themselves to the common man/woman! Sad!!

    I believe Mitt and Ann Romney shop at Costco as much as I believe Ann and Mitt Romney as a general rule wash their own laundry.

    Anonymous, very much agreed. They probably "like" Costco since the housekeepers do their shopping there.
