Odor prompts United flight to divert to Ohio: TV star tweets about being on 'Hot in Cleveland'

CLEVELAND - A United Airlines flight from New York to Los Angeles has been diverted to Cleveland because of an electrical smell, causing a celebrity passenger to tweet that perhaps she should be on the comedy "Hot in Cleveland."
 
WEWS-TV reports that "Body of Proof" star Dana Delany was on Flight 132 from Kennedy International Airport Sunday when someone reported a smell coming from a cabin. The plane was diverted to Cleveland at about 5:45 p.m., where airport officials said maintenance workers checked the aircraft but did not find anything.
 
Delany tweeted about the incident saying, "Maybe being stranded in Cleveland is a sign that I should be on @hotnclevelandtv. @bettymwhite where are you?" and "Emergency landing on @United in Cleveland. Who's couch can I crash on?!?"
 
There were no injuries. It wasn't immediately known when the plane took off again.
