Ellen DeGeneres wants to play Ann Romney’s roommate on Modern Family
30 August 2012

The wife of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has gotten a little more than she bargained for after mentioning in an interview that her favorite show is ABC’s Modern Family which features the gay couple of Cam and Mitch.

The show’s creator and executive producer Steve Levitan took to Twitter this week to respond to Ann Romney’s taste ion TV shows which would seem to fly in the face of her husband’s political stance against gay marriage.

‘We’ll offer her the role of officiant at Mitch & Cam’s wedding. As soon as it’s legal,’ Levitan tweeted.

Now Ellen DeGeneres is weighing in.

The talk show host, married to actress Portia de Rossi, took to Twitter today (30 August) to suggest that if Romney were to appear on the show, ‘I’ll play her roommate.’

Ann Romney got strong reviews for her speech about her husband at this week’s Republican National Convention in Tampa, Florida where Mitt Romney will deliver his acceptance speech tonight.
