Diet Coke + Xanax = Fun

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!

    Perez the jab about diet coke isn't funny. shame on you. Mental illness is REAL! people who joke about mental illness probably needs help as well. Delta is a beautiful woman inside and out and doesn't need people picking on her or making jokes about her condition, shame on you. It can happen to any family so don't be so quick to think you are OK! in the head. I am praying for Delt and Gerald and I know they will be ok.

    i think i'd edit out the obvious you-tube promos as well as the sicko political comments from my site. other than that, i hope Delta Burke achieves some peace from her latest foray into mental health. she's been crying for helps for a long, long time.

    sounds like she may need a long term break from all those meds to (literally) clear her head and see if her brain can function normally by itself.

    I've been a fan of Delta's since I was about 7 years old. I think everything she's done for people (her clothing line for plus size women, speaking out against the stigma of being overweight, mental health charity work) is reason enough for you NOT to being talking smack about her when she's down. Perez, I'm really ashamed that you're picking on a poor overweight, depressed, over 40 actress who, from the sound of it, is beating herself up enough without help from you. I won't call you names and insult you because frankly you're not worth the effort. I think you've gone WAY too far with this one, Bud.
