Fergie just got back from tour with the Black-Eyed Peas and is gearing up for “Idol Gives Back” this week — but she took a little time out of her busy schedule to stand by her man Josh Duhamel at the American Red Cross’ annual Red Tie Affair on Saturday (Apr. 17).
]]>The Dish Rag caught up with Fergie on the red carpet, where she told us how proud she is of her charity-minded husband. Duhamel recently organized a Youth Run 4 Haiti in Santa Monica and has been a long-time supporter of the Red Cross. We also asked Fergie to dish a little on what we can expect to see when the Black-Eyed Peas lend their name to a good cause on Wednesday’s “Idol Gives Back” show. Turns out it’s still in the works. “We’re working on it right now, to tell you the truth,” she says with a laugh. “We’ve been on tour — we just got home for a week.” As for another hit show she’d love to be on — yep, you guessed it, “Glee.” She told us she’s a big fan of the show and thought the Madonna “Vogue” video was “amazing.” The gala, held each year at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel in Santa Monica, draws big-name stars who make it a point to give back. This year Jada Pinkett Smith got top honors for her “outstanding contributions to humanitarian efforts and her support of the American Red Cross.” She arrived with proud hubby Will Smith on her arm, and the cast of her show “HawthoRNe” also came to show their support. Other stars attending the charity event (which includes a sit-down dinner and live auction event) include Buzz Aldrin, Leeza Gibbons and “True Blood’s” Aisha Hinds.
