Kim Delaney

Yanked Off Stage

At U.S. Military Event

9/23/2011 6:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


0923_kim_delaney
"Army Wives" actress Kim Delaney had to be escorted off the stage at an event honoring the U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates in Philadelphia last night after slurring and stalling her way through a very bizarre scripted speech.

Several high ranking U.S. officials were present during the award show -- and 3 former U.S. presidents made special video tributes for the event.

It's unclear what caused Kim's bizarre behavior.

Delaney has had issues with substance abuse in the past -- she spent some time in rehab for alcohol abuse in 2003.

Calls to Kim's rep have not been returned.

What took them so long to get her off the stage? What an effed up alcoholic/druggie this loser is. Why do these people keep getting chance after chance when they are hopeless cases? There are so many talented people who could act her out of a paper bag. BTW...Klassy tat Kim...

Let me guess. She was over tired from the flight. The next step will be her announcement that she is entering rehab for personal issues. Of course, they will profess that it has nothing to do with drugs and alcohol.

She wasn't drunk, just having a hard time with the prompter. And she's as hot as ever. I'd do her in a heartbeat!

She seemed a bit tipsy to me (listen to her slur the word "constitution"), which probably made it difficult for her to coherently read an already difficult to see teleprompter. Not a good combo. Poor Kim. I hope she gets help that sticks this time.

She's definitely not drunk - she's not slurring, she's just 'odd'. Very mousy and quiet. I'm guessing drugs, but she's 'with it' enough to know she should hide it and she's just doing a bad job of hiding it.

What will always stick in my mind was the oral sex scene between her and jimmy smits in nypd blue. Fond memory indeed.

What's up with that hair? I think the speech was the least of their problems. The poor girl looks like she just rolled out of bed.

What a disrespectful woman to speak like that infront of people who fight in war. She is clearly on drugs, people who can't see the script don't behave like that, they would instead lean forward, hold the paladium and make a joke or still talk confidently when they can't see the script. Be real, she was on drugs.
