Kim Delaney

Yanked Off Stage

At U.S. Military Event

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

"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.

She should have been wearing a better dress. Why was she speaking at the event? She seems mis-cast for that event. Shame she didn't have some reading glasses. She probably can't afford a PR coach.

The Liberty Medals are not military ceremonies... Do you guys have fact checkers? If not, I'll take the job.

Good golly! She's in pretty bad shape. Hopefully she'll see this as a real wake up call to get some serious help, more than ever before. And her reps better come clean as well and better not brush this off by saying she was having a "mini-stroke," or was "ill with the flu," or the "dehydration" and "exhaustion"excuse.

I think she's either drunk or high, too. Her hair is all disheveled and she keeps blinking her right eye at odd moments. Yes, she's having trouble reading teleprompter but probably cuz she's having to focus on the one in the middle! She was probably blurred and/or seeing in triplicate! She's a beautiful talented woman. Hope she gets it together.

As soon a I saw her I could tell she was under the influence of something. Why was she even allowed on stage?

She wasn't slurring her words ... she wasn't read the teleprompter very well, that part is correct, but she wasn't drunk. She probably (as they will come back and report) that she took a prescription pill and mixed it with alcohol and that is why she sounded the way she did and was given the 'hook' to get her off the stage ... clearly something wasn't right but her PR person is going to be doing some 'splain' today!

Very unfortunate. I know she's had problems in the past and it's apparent that she was under the influence of something. Hopefully this is enough for her to get more help.

I'll be sending you positive vibes Kim!

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Didn't she have some DUI episode years ago, or was that some other drunken tv chick? Way to insult the troops you frigging bimbo.

Anyone giving a public speech needs to be prepared for equipment failure and know how to intelligently extemp a few sentences.


She was high on something, but it wasn't life. Stop making excuses for the celebs you happen to like while hating on others.

It didn't look like she was drunk or high, it looks like she was simply having a tough time reading the teleprompter and might be too vain to wear glasses. I think a combination of nervousness and a bad prompter is more the case here.
