'Modern Family' Creator Offers Ann Romney a Role
August 29, 2012
After Ann Romney told ET's Nancy O'Dell that Modern Family is her favorite show, the creator of the hit ABC comedy took to Twitter to mock the presidential candidate's wife by inviting her to appear on the show to officiate a wedding between two gay characters.
"Thrilled Ann Romney says ModFam is her favorite show," co-creator Steve Levitan tweeted. "We'll offer her the role of officiant at Mitch & Cam's wedding. As soon as it's legal," he added. The roles of the show's gay characters Mitch and Cam are portrayed by Eric Stonestreet and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney -- who has said during the current presidential campaign that he does not favor the legalization of same-sex marriage -- previously stated that he also liked watching Modern Family with his wife.
Levitan's tweet on Tuesday came just hours before Ann addressed the Republican National Convention in Tampa, FL.
Jesse Tyler Ferguson also weighed in on the Romneys' enthusiasm for the show, tweeting on Wednesday, "I have to say, I'm actually thrilled Mitt & Ann Romney love Modern Family. I hope it sparks something in them!"
