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 (bit.ly/ZeLRfW) 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 (at)hotnclevelandtv. (at)bettymwhite where are you?" and "Emergency landing on (at)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.
