Nancy O’Dell Interviews Ann Romney

Nancy O’Dell, our correspondent for all things celeb and cohost of Entertainment Tonight, recently snagged an interview with Ann Romney. She got the Republican front-runner’s wife to open up about raising five sons with Mitt and the now famous “Momgate,” in which a political strategist said that Ann (a stay-at-home mom) had never worked a day in her life. In response to the controversy, Ann tells Nancy that “everyone knows that doing the job of raising kids is one of the hardest jobs we have. And it’s also a job that never ends.” Watch the video clip for yourself by clicking here, and make sure to tune in to the full interview tomorrow on Entertainment Tonight.

What do you think of Momgate? Just another example of playing politics with women’s issues, or a larger issue that merits more discussion in this country? Weigh in now by commenting below. We want to know your thoughts!

    I think the feminist/Obama (unofficial) advisor- Hilary Rosen completely disrespected moms everywhere. It shows her true opinion of stay at home moms. Women’s RIGHTS are their RIGHTS no matter what they choose. She obviously doesn’t get that….. Why would the Obama campaign have such a biased person advising them?

    I think this is typical Politicizing of an issue. The real issue is not SAHM vs. Working Moms, but rather whether a woman such as Ann Romney is qualified to advise her husband on “Today’s Woman,” which includes many women who are forced to work full time jobs while raising children because of their economic status 9myself being one of them). Mrs. Romney and others try to make this an issue of SAHM vs. Working Moms, and which one is “better,” when it isn’t a qualitative debate at all. I do believe that it would be best for my children to have me at home full time, but it isn’t an economic possibility for a great majority of American families. And for me, it isn’t because I want to give my kids a bigger house or more vacations, it’s simply in order to put a roof over their head and food on the table at all.
