More publicity for her!
Delta Burke, best known for her role in Designing Women - way back in the day, is at it again.
The actress is talking to the media about recently checking in to a psychiatric hospital and how she got there. According to Burke, she was so depressed at times, that she would be unable to get out of bed for two weeks.
Burke claims she has had a lifelong battle with depression, at times taking up to five different medications to help her treatment.
That seems like an awful lot!
According to a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Burke went to a clinic to "get my meds straightened out and to get properly diagnosed." And she has. Docs have since scaled back her intake.
Burke was also reported to be receiving treatment for hoarding, to which she admits she does and an addiction to the QVC Shopping Network and online auction sites.
We don't blame her. Who doesn't love the creepy ladies on QVC and HSN?
Delta is also opening up about one night when she had gotten so upset about an article that a tabloid had written about her, she drove up to the top of the hill, with a bottle of Xanax, and a gun next to her. Blurke recalls, "I just kept taking Xanax and hoping the pain would stop. I got really sleepy and decided to go for a ride. I needed a Diet Coke really bad. I called up [husband Gerald McRaney]. I didn't know where I was but he found me."
You heard it people, when depressed, just go for that Diet Coke. You'll get that tingly, happy feeling inside. It's better than the gun!
