Kim Delaney Really Respects The Troops

September 23rd, 2011 // 37 Comments

Army Wives star Kim Delaney was invited to the Liberty Medal Award presentation for former defense secretary Robert Gates last night where she felt it’d be best to honor the brave men and women fighting for our freedom by being drunk and/or high as shit while conflating her fictional role on Army Wives with their real-life service. Via ABC News:

Delaney stumbled to the podium and twisted her hands as she talked 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 said, slurring at times. “I’ve attended numerous military funerals, including that of my best friend’s son.”
Except, she hasn’t.
“It’s all make believe. I do that as a job. It’s make believe,” she said nearly two minutes into her speech. “I have the luxury to do all of this on a television show.”
Video from ABC affiliate WPVI shows the crowd growing uncomfortable as Delaney rambles on. She was escorted off stage before finishing her remarks.

Except before everyone gets mad at Kim Delaney, they should really focus their attention on the person who went, “You know who would be great to address a crowd full of servicemen? An actress with a history of substance abuse who also happens to star in a Lifetime show that trivializes the family lives of soldiers in the name of cheap, homogenized drama. Someone who really gives them something to fight for. ‘For the Hollywood drug addicts getting almost everything about us wrong!’ they’ll say before battle.”

    Well to their credit, they didn’t hire Lindsay.

  2. How to succeed in roughing wihout really trying

    Well that was embarrassing.

  3. Pippy Longcockings

    Maybe she should stoop for the troops if she really wants to help out.

  4. adolf hitler

    she looks like shes just reading…

    • Brooke

      Yeah, I agree. She’d squint sometimes and alwys kept her eyes on the teleprompter, but she was clerly drunk. She did the OMG I’m So Wasted You Guyzz smile a couple of times.

  5. HolyBejesus

    I fapped to that….

  6. right

    she is still very fuckable for her age. Calm down.

    • Polk

      Thanks for cutting through the noise. She speaking to the troops because she’s hot. She could praise Fidel Castro and Al Queda and no one would care.

  7. HolyBejesus

    You wrote more words than I did to comment, you calm down. Plus I’m VERY relaxed now…

  8. wtf

    aside from “playing” an army wife on a mediocre tv show on the estrogen channel, what other credentials did this fucktard have to even be allowed on this stage?

  9. Chico

    She is one hot milf. i think I’m in love with her. She is 49 by the way.

  10. Dan

    I think they troops would have been more happy with the situation and j-wow doing a strip tease on stage.

  11. CokedOUT

    Could you imagine them looking over a list of celebrities to ask, “How bout Tom Sizemore, he was in Ryan?” “Ooh , what about, Steven Weber from Hamburger Hill?” “Both can’t make it, hmmm, lets go for, Kim Delaney..,nothing like the thousand yard coke and rum stare to inspire”

  12. I’m drunk and/or high whenever I post here. Do you judge me the same way?

    e.

  16. freaky

    You’ve gotta put this in the correct context. It was terribly brave for her to attempt to speak in front of a room while shitfaced and/or higher-than-high. I personally could not have done it and I wouldn’t have had the balls to try. Hats off, Kim — you made it out on your own two feet!

  17. guess she’s only on Step 1.

    Is it mre or are our troops becoming spoiled babies? You’re fighting tribesmen for godsake, they got AKs you got tanks, not the Wehrmacht. But somehow they got to date actresses, and when they are on the plane, they got to get off first to thunderous applause, because they can’t be expected to wait in the aisle to find out their high school sweetheart who they knocked up a year ago is now fat and fucking the pizza boy.

  19. terry

    Just nasty!

  20. lkl

    Now that was not very good. But at least she didn’t fall on her ass.

  21. USN-Retired

    Stupid bitch! Get off the stage and shut your pie-hole. Show some respect or just SHUT THE FUCK UP!! Any wonder people (myself) have NO respect for most Hollywood assholes. Maybe you need to do it for REAL you stupid fucking cunt!!

    • Mama Pinkus

      Ever heard of freedom of speech? You’re ex-military? You didn’t learn much, did you? You sound like one of those asshole Rush-bots – Hollywood folk cannot have opinions, unless of course they are shitty actors like Ronald Reagan or Arnold Schwarzenegger

  22. forrest gump
