The actress is extremely dedicated to philanthropy and you can often find her and Kaya serving dinners at shelters or assisting a number of different charities. She is currently the national spokeswoman for the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition's "Break the Silence" campaign, which encourages women to start talking about ovarian cancer with their families, friends and doctors. Her grandmother and great-grandmother both died from ovarian cancer.

La Rue is also involved with "Journey For Uganda," a humanitarian documentary that explores the financial struggles of Uganda and shows the efforts to create a transparent accounting system to help with investments, international financial aid and business opportunities for the country.

"It's this awesome software that was developed by a company out of Riverside, Calif. and it is a money-tracking system," La Rue explains of the accounting system, first implemented by Uganda. "It's basically set up for governments, or organizations, or even charitable organizations to track every dime that comes in and goes out in real time. So there's always somebody accountable. It's awesome and hopefully some day will be in our own government."

In the midst of her non-stop charitable work, La Rue also recently found time to shoot a movie called "Lakeview Terrace," the story of a Los Angeles police officer, played by Samuel Jackson, who will stop at nothing to force out an interracial couple who just moved in next door.

"That was really awesome; it was really fun," La Rue said of the film. "When I got to the set, he [Jackson] was like, 'Oh my God, I totally love 'CSI: Miami' and watch you all the time.' And I was like, 'Oh my God, I totally love you and watch you all the time!'

In the film, La Rue plays someone in internal affairs who brings Jackson's evil character down.

"It's a great script by really quite sneaky measures," she said. "You're not sure if he's good or bad until three-quarters of the way through when you're like, 'Damn, no, he's not good.' "

As for "CSI: Miami," La Rue says she enjoys the moments when her screen time is abundant and she's really able to sink herself into her character. She is also very excited about her future on the show.

"They're giving Natalia a little bit more of her mysterious side back," she says. "I think she's going to be doing more work with the FBI, and you're going to find out a little bit more about what she's doing now, possibly still with them. That stuff's kind of nice. I love it when there's some mystery in the big coffin."

One thing's for certain, there's no denying that La Rue has zero regrets about that decision to move back home.

"It's the first time where I feel like I'm balancing pretty well," she says. "I love my job and I love that it's not five days a week, because that gives me time to go volunteer at my kid's school and make the cupcakes and the cookies and go on the field trips.

"I feel like I've got right now a pretty good balance. It's taken a number of years to get this, but yeah, life's been really good lately."
