Kim Delaney Breaks Silence on Incoherent Speech About Military Families
The 'Army Wives' star claims she 'wasn't feeling great' when taking the podium at the Liberty Medal Award presentation to honor former defense secretary Robert Gates in September 2011.


Kim Delaney finally addresses the September 2011 incident where she had to be escorted off the stage at a military event due to her rambling speech. The Jenny Gardner of ABC's "All My Children" shares her side of the story to Entertainment Weekly, calling it a "bad week" before saying, "I wasn't feeling great."

Not being in her best condition wasn't the only excuse Delaney offered. "There were technical problems," so the "Army Wives" star claimed. She added, "I was prepared, but it didn't come out that way. It was like the perfect storm for something to go wrong. And then it goes viral! There's just nothing you can do [but] deal with it, right?"

Delaney fumbled through her incoherent speech when taking the podium at the Liberty Medal Award presentation to honor former defense secretary Robert Gates in September 2011. Looking slightly disheveled, she fidgeted, sighed and had long pauses as she told the audience, "I've served in active duty military family for five years."

"I've seen soldiers come home with painful life altering injuries borne of their time and service. I've attended numerous military funerals, including that of my best friend's son," she continued on before revealing that she was referring to her role on the Lifetime television series. "For me, it's all make believe. I do that as a job. It's make believe. I have the luxury of doing all this on a television show."
