Ann Romney to Sub for Robin Roberts on Good Morning America; Michelle Obama Could Be Next


Step aside, Mitt: Ann Romney's getting her moment in the spotlight!

The hopeful future first lady will be filling in for Robin Roberts on Good Morning America this Wednesday, ABC has confirmed to E! News.

Ann, 63, will cohost ABC's morning program alongside George Stephanopoulos and correspondents Lara Spencer, Josh Elliott and Sam Champion.

The network also says it's in talks with first lady Michelle Obama to cohost GMA. Previously announced fill-ins include Oprah Winfrey, Stephen Colbert and the cast of Modern Family.

Although Roberts, following a bone marrow transplant, isn't ready to return to the air quite yet, she did share some good news with fans on Thursday. In a blog post on GMA's website, the 51-year-old anchor said her "doctors and rock star nurses are very pleased with my progress and I could not be more thankful for the excellent care I am receiving."

If all goes well, she hopes to be discharged from the hospital next week. We wish her well!

Lmao. I like her(for the most part), but she really does need to sit down. She's doing too much.
mammary_glands 4th-Oct-2012 11:49 pm (UTC)
ia and i hate her pandering to women omg
crazyventures 4th-Oct-2012 11:56 pm (UTC)

ugh this bitch

I love the dress the First Last Only Lady wore at the convention. flawless.

also, Ann spells her name the inferior way.
celtic_thistle 5th-Oct-2012 12:10 am (UTC)
mte she seems like such a fucking awful, cold person.
squid_ink 5th-Oct-2012 12:15 am (UTC)
but she's done 'curing' herself of MS by eating healthy and riding horses. She has so much free time now

/fucking hate her with every fiber of my body.
odetobilliejoe 5th-Oct-2012 12:15 am (UTC)
Agree. And I find her pretty fake, don't get the whole "secret weapon" thing. She drips privilege.
cricketgrl 5th-Oct-2012 12:52 am (UTC)
I don't necessarily hate her but I think her parading around lately has been mostly damage control. She's been desperately going around trying to save both Romney and Ryan. With those those two fuckups it's hard work.
goldengal1193 4th-Oct-2012 11:40 pm (UTC)
Ann's 63? Wow, she looks pretty good......But it's probably all the makeup, tbh.

And I'd love to see Michelle sub in.
jedimistress16 5th-Oct-2012 03:28 am (UTC)
She does look great for 63, although I guarantee you she's had some work done on her face, jawline, etc. and Botox on her forehead. No one's face skin is that tight at that age.
samiringo 5th-Oct-2012 04:10 am (UTC)
reminds me of jack donaghy's "rich 50 is the middle class 38" line
mammary_glands 4th-Oct-2012 11:41 pm (UTC)
so do we think ann romney is the barb nicki or margie of mitt's celestial family?
mammary_glands 4th-Oct-2012 11:47 pm (UTC)
i can't wait for him to win so that he can accept the presidency and then introduce the world to his three wives/belief in the covenant of plural marriage tbh.

she totally is a barb. full with terrible disease that nearly killed her and all.

Using this as an excuse to post this from Obama's tumblr.

though y'all have prob already seen it

I love that Tumblr.

Awwww <3
brucelynn 4th-Oct-2012 11:44 pm (UTC)
One of my friends who is black said that at this point he is voting for Mitt Romney ....... because he was in "control" of the debate and Obama was "weak"

and I told him " Umm .... you know that he lied about everything right? " and then some guy lashed out at me telling me " How do you know he is a liar? I checked his facts and they were all correct blah blah " .... I later found out that guy is a Mormon lol
hollymarchosias 4th-Oct-2012 11:47 pm (UTC)
I guess he forgot when Romney dissed the NAACP in their faces. That pretty much sealed my vote for Obama...along with the fact that I'm also bi and female, so yeah.
brucelynn 4th-Oct-2012 11:49 pm (UTC)
Oh I forgot to mention he is gay too ......

Like WTF man

I wanna cut him off for saying that

destructo_ray 4th-Oct-2012 11:50 pm (UTC)
My sister's Mormon and voting for Jill Stein.
joliebelle 4th-Oct-2012 11:53 pm (UTC)
Hey, I know Mormons that are voting for Obama
saintssin 4th-Oct-2012 11:54 pm (UTC)
People are sooooooooooo dumb.

Winning a debate does not mean you're the better candidate.

If a schoolyard bully ran for president and beat on his opponent, he'd be praised.

I wish people would take a closer look at the GOP. They only serve the interests of wealthy, religious white people. Romney may create jobs; but he's only going to create crappy minimum wage jobs while working to ensure that the wealthy are better off. He's also going to cut the hell out of programs that benefit the American public. We all know PBS subsidies won't fix the debt issue.
lachica2000 5th-Oct-2012 12:11 am (UTC)
My idiot boss tried that to parrot the bullshit about Medicare and I schooled him to the point that all he could say is "Well, I think your guy is going to lose." So I laughed and told him that only the fools on Stormfront believe that.
celtic_thistle 5th-Oct-2012 12:12 am (UTC)
LOL my coworker has a black Mormon friend who said basically the same thing. WHAT IF IT'S THE SAME DUDE
carbons 5th-Oct-2012 12:15 am (UTC)
lololol at him saying that mitt's facts were correct. W A T.
cricketgrl 5th-Oct-2012 12:53 am (UTC)
that was kind of the sentiment of some WOC on this comm last night. I was kind of annoyed by it.
tiddlywinks103 5th-Oct-2012 02:01 am (UTC)
I do not get people who think like this. "I'd rather have a glib liar as president, instead of a pausing, 'uh' saying, truth teller."

Like saying the bully was really effective in punching that kid's kidney, what a good bully he is, ignoring the fact that being a bully makes you a shit person.
samiringo 5th-Oct-2012 04:11 am (UTC)
i just link everyone to factcheck.org: http://factcheck.org/2012/10/dubious-denver-debate-declarations/

can't really argue with that.
hollymarchosias 4th-Oct-2012 11:45 pm (UTC)

I mean, no one remembers when the Romneys were on Kelly and Michael
saintssin 4th-Oct-2012 11:45 pm (UTC)
Why are we trying to make her happen?

She's just as strange as her husband, considering she was with him before he changed his position on every issue.

I'd be so fucking confused if I got married and then woke up ten years later to my wife clutching a bible.
xcollsangelx 4th-Oct-2012 11:45 pm (UTC)
Can't stand Ann Romney.

Get well!!!

sending her positive vibes!
emesieremonde 4th-Oct-2012 11:48 pm (UTC)
I hope it goes well for both of them. Ann's speech during the RNC made me cringe so hopefully she'll be more comfortable in this setting.
squid_ink 5th-Oct-2012 12:18 am (UTC)
as long as Queen Ann doesn't have to brush elbows with the 'poors' she'll be fine
