Kim Delaney is the star of ‘Army Wives’, which, unbeknownst to me, is a TV show that exists, so I guess that’s why she gave a speech last night at the Liberty Media awards honoring former defense secretary Robert Gates. And since that sounds boring to someone like Kim, she got good and drunk first. E! says…
The disheveled actress, who has been treated for alcohol abuse in the past, shocked the military audience by slurring her words, making strange gestures and fibbing about her own experience in the armed services.
At the event honoring former defense secretary Robert Gates, Delaney rambled on the podium about “having served in active military duty family for five years.”
“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.”
It’s important to note that when she talks about the funeral of her best friends son, she means, “on a TV show.” Not in real life. I don’t mean to be pedantic, but that’s not really the same thing. After this she went to Walter Reed and told the soldiers about a scary dream she had and the time she stepped on a tack.
