Dana Loesch made headlines this week for reportedly blaming mainstream media for mass shootings at the Conservative Political Action Conference--but once upon a time, she allegedly had a dream of becoming a sitcom star.

Paul Guyot, whose IMBD page includes credits from NCIS: New Orleans, The Librarians, and Leverage, shared on Twitter that Loesch, an NRA spokeswoman and conservative commentator, allegedly approached him with a sitcom idea.

Guyot tweeted:

"Dana Loesch came to me 10yrs ago pitching a sitcom starring herself: 'A hot young mom who does far right radio show.' Said her age & looks would make 1 side hate her & 1 love her so everyone would watch. Was obsessed w the potential fame & money. I turned her down."

Guyot shared more details with followers on Twitter, explaining the Loesch was allegedly pushing to pitch the "super hot," and a conservative, angle.

"My memory is she was consumed with the idea that she was super hot & right wing, so that rare combo (her words) HAD to mean she could get rich & famous. Guess she found another way to her goal," he explained on Twitter.

Deadline has reached out to Loesch regarding Guyot's claim.

Loesch has been making headlines a lot as of late. On Friday, Loesch got defensive with CNN's Alisyn Camerota who pointed out that the NRA shares some responsibility to try to fix America's gun violence epidemic.

"No, we absolutely do not," Loesch told Camerota. "We're parents too. We want to be able to make sure that our kids are also safe."

On Thursday, according to CNN, Loesch blamed the mass media for mass shootings at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

"Many in legacy media love mass shootings. You guys love it. Now I'm not saying that you love the tragedy. But I am saying that you love the ratings. Crying white mothers are ratings gold to you and many in the legacy media in the back (of the room)," Loesch said, according to CNN.

She added, "And notice I said 'crying white mothers' because there are thousands of grieving black mothers in Chicago every weekend, and you don't see town halls for them, do you? Where's the CNN town hall for Chicago? Where's the CNN town hall for sanctuary cities?"
