We won't be seeing Ann Romney doing the paso doble anytime soon, or at least not televised for millions watching "Dancing with the Stars."

The Republican first lady hopeful and wife to Mitt Romney, declined the opportunity to be a contestant on the ABC dance competition, her rep told TMZ.

Producers of the the show approached Ann about her interest in the show after her husband lost the presidential election. Rumors began to circulate about a possible run on the show in November, when Ann was spotted backstage at the “All Stars” finale with her son Craig.

Melyssa Rycroft and partner Tony Dovolani danced away with the top prize and that night Ann expressed her enthusiasm for the dance competition to Inside EditionAfter making a serious consideration for the spot, Ann ultimately decided to turn down the gig.

"Ann Romney was approached, but she declined. She will not be appearing on 'Dancing with the Stars,” her rep said.

This wouldn’t have been Anne’s first turn at TV stardom. In the heat of the presidential campaign, the former first lady of Massachusetts was a guest correspondent on "Good Morning America," perhaps hoping to sway more undecided voters with her charisma. She filled in for Robin Roberts who battled myelodysplastic syndrome (MSD), a bone marrow condition.

It would have been interesting for viewers to see Anne’s impeccable campaign style translate to the elaborate costumes used on "Dancing with the Stars." Throughout the span of the election, Ann's style was regularly compared to Michelle Obama’s.
