VIDEO: “Army Wives” Star Kim Delaney Escorted Off Stage During Bizarre, Slurred Speech

The publicist for Army Wives star Kim Delaney has their thinking caps on tonight, mulling over how to explain Delaney's pretty bonkers speaking engagement at the Liberty Medal Awards. She painfully stumbled, slurred, and eerily grinned through her speech until she was escorted offstage without finishing. And ohhhh yeah, it's all on tape.

The publicist for Army Wives star Kim Delaney likely has their thinking caps on tonight, mulling over how to explain Delaney’s pretty bonkers speaking engagement at the Liberty Medal Awards in Philly Thursday night. Delaney painfully stumbled, slurred, and eerily grinned through her speech until she was escorted offstage without finishing. And ohhhh yeah, it’s all on tape. (Scroll down for the video.)

The mostly military audience sat mostly in awe as she fumbled through her ‘speech at the event’, which was honoring former defense secretary Robert Gates.

At one point she even seemed to share her experiences an actress as though they were her own: “I’ve seen soldiers come home with painful life-altering injuries borne of their time and service,” she slurred. “I’ve attended numerous military funerals, including that of my best friend’s son.”

Later in the speech, she made it more clear that those moments were actually from her role on her series “Army Wives” on Lifetime. “It’s all make believe,” she said. “I have the luxury to do all of this on a television show.”

Delaney has had issues with alcohol in the past, including treatment for alcohol abuse and a DUI arrest.
