Which popular TV actress refused to tape video encouragement message for AIDS Ride?

zap2it-blind-item-aids-ride.jpgAs readers know, it's a pretty tough task to render The Dish Rag speechless or make our jaw drop. But over the weekend, a friend of ours did just that. Thankfully, it was only for a hot minute and now we're ready to blab all over the blogosphere. But in order to protect the innocent, we can only report this as a blind item.

The annual AIDS/LifeCycle ride culminated in Los Angeles Saturday (June 12), which benefits research for a cure for the disease. This year it raised $10 million for the cause.

A reliable source tells The Dish Rag that celebrity soundbites were compiled for a video reel encouraging participants who undertook the grueling seven-day bike ride.
