‘Dancing With the Stars’ Season 16 Loses Its Classiest Pick

TV Addict 12

Since the presidential campaign ended last fall, many people have been wondering what the Romney’s plans for the future are. Whatever they are, they apparently don’t include a turn on the dance floor for season 16 of Dancing with the Stars.

Ann Romney, the wife of former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, was in talks with DWTS executives about an appearance on the show, sources say. She was “very interested,” but ultimately decided against it.

I can hardly blame her! It goes to show what a remarkably strong and adventuresome woman she is that she was even considering it. She has got to be tired. Very tired.

Her husband has basically been running for president for the past six years. Before that, she was the First Lady of Massachusetts. Before that they relocated to Utah to head up the Olympics. Before that she was a mom to five boys and the wife of a businessman with an incredibly demanding job. Oh yeah, she battled breast cancer in there somewhere, and she was diagnosed with MS.

How is she still standing, let alone debating whether or not to appear on a very physically challenging show? I’d be calling for the Xanax from my cabana on the beach while my masseuse worked the knots out of my shoulders.

Still … it would have been very cool to watch Mrs. Romney strut her stuff, and even cooler to watch Mitt in the audience look at her with the same love, pride, and adoration that he always does. They really are the sweetest couple.

Which celebrity would you like to see on Dancing with the Stars?

I'm not sure her being on the show was ever a good idea. She conducts herself classily- I can't really ever picture her enjoying or being comfortable shaking her thing in a barely there outfit.

I personally think they shouldn't ask political figures to be on the show anyway. Lets stick with little known actors and washed up singers tyvm!

Look how democrats treated her during the election. Look how they treated Bristol Palin on the show. Look how your fellow bloggers treated her during the election. Look how your fellow bloggers treated Bristol Palin on the show. That should answer your question

What question are you answering billsfan? I think I missed something.

Ok, so Bills didn't answer an asked question, but her point is still a good one. Mrs. Romney would have lost before she set one toe on that dance floor. Sadly, politicians from both sides of the aisle should steer clear of shows like this. (Unless it's Rod Blagojevich; he's a big enough idiot to be able to carry it off) There is too much partisan bickering now for people to rise above and see a person for who they are outside of their political persona. Ann would have been absolutely shredded, even though she is probably one of the classiest ladies out there right now.

People treated Bristol the way she did because she can't dance and a lot of talented people were booted because people love her mommy.

There is a world of difference between Ann Romney, who is a classy lady, and Bristol Palin, who is a slutty ignorant redneck moron.

No you really didn't make a point, but keep teling yourself that. Maybe your "they're all out to get us" mentality will ease.

I think Ann Romney would be a great contestant, but like someone else said, I can't envision her really letting herself go or feeling totally comfortable out there. Bristol Palin was a terrible dancer and I'm still a little confused as to why she was even asked to be on the show. I saw that as being a bit of an olive branch... perhaps a twig from the olive tree. Doesn't matter regarding republican/democratic politics, though... if there's a football player, he's winning from day one.
