Kim Delaney escorted from Philadelphia podium
Question of the Day
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Kim Delaney, star of the television show “Army Wives,” had to be escorted from the podium at an event in Philadelphia after struggling to read her speech from a teleprompter.
It happened Thursday at an event honoring former Defense Secretary Robert Gates.
Delaney is a 52-year-old Philadelphia native. Her remarks were punctuated by long pauses and fragmented sentences. After several minutes, a video began to play. She was escorted away from the podium to a chair on the side of the stage by a woman who appeared to be a producer.
Her publicist did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
The event Thursday at National Constitution Center was in honor of Gates. He received the 2011 Liberty Medal, a civic award, for his long public service career.
