Actress Hustled Away Because She Couldn't Gush About A Former Defense Secretary

Kim Delaney Stumbles Through Speech, Is Escorted Off Stage

"Kim Delaney was escorted off stage Thursday night after stumbling through a speech at an event honoring former Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

The Army Wives star approached the podium at the Liberty Medal Award presentation in her hometown of Philadelphia. As she began her speech, she interrupted herself to turn to the side and say "This is my job," apparently to someone waiting in the wings. She then launched into a halting, perplexing speech about how she's served in the active military, seen injured soldiers come home and attended military funerals — except she hasn't.

"I do that as a job. It's make-believe. I have the luxury to do all of this on a television show," she said, while the crowd grew visibly uncomfortable as Delaney continued. The actress was reportedly escorted off stage before finishing her speech."
