Stars Dish at the Stand Up 2 Cancer Fundraiser

More than 50 stars gathered for the multi-network Stand Up 2 Cancer telethon on September 10. While most of their focus was on fund-raising, TV Guide Magazine got them to divulge some TV scoop.

  • Eva La Rue, who works with the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition because the women in her family have a predisposition for the disease, could barely contain her poker face when she told TV Guide Magazine exclusively about a rumor going around the CSI: Miami set. "We've got some really great cases and great storylines, but one of the best rumors I've heard is that Lady Gaga wants to do the show. How cool would that be? We all have a line of family members that would want to be trotted to set that day if that was the case." A big fan of the singer, LaRue would love the rumor to be true, although she hopes it wouldn't involve Gaga-esque costumes. "I don't think we'd be very effective at a crime scene in latex or a bubble dress. Could you imagine Horatio in a leotard?" No, but the gun bra might come in handy.
