Ann Romney might be gearing up for her role as potential first lady, but she might also wanna prep for another one: TV star.
Mitt Romney's 63-year-old missus openly professed her love for "Modern Family" to "Entertainment Tonight," and now its creator, Steve Levitan, has offered her a spot on the show--while slyly taking dig at her husband's anti-gay-marriage stance.
The showrunner took to Twitter yesterday and wrote: "Thrilled Ann Romney says ModFam is her favorite show. We'll offer her the role of officiant at Mitch &Cam's wedding. As soon as it's legal."

The day's top national and international news.
Now there's a canny casting stunt for TV sweeps week!
Levitan, of course, was clearly taking swipe at the Republican presidential candidate, who's been a vocal opponent of gay marriage.
While on the campaign trail in Oklahoma City in May, he told reporters, "I have the same view on marriage that I had when I was governor. I believe marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman."
Levitan's tongue-in-cheek offer arrived on the eve of Ann's well-received speech at the Republic National Convention Tuesday, in which she created a warm image of Mitt while saluting the nation's women.
Even the show's young stars have gotten in on the action, reportedly scoring $70,000-per-episode paydays.
Hey, maybe Ann Romney won't play so hardball!
