The Delta Blues

This sure is an emotional roller coaster of a day for celeb non-news! Heath Ledger overdose...dooowwn. Amy Winehouse improving....uuuup! And now we go back dooown again, as it seems Miss Delta Burke has checked herself into a psychiatric facility to treat her O.C.D. and predliction for packrattiness, according to People:
Delta Burke has been in a psychiatric hospital since checking herself in last week, reports

The former "Designing Women" star, 51, is apparently seeking treatment for symptoms of depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and "hoarding" which on an audio clip provided by TMZ she is heard likening to what is seen in the homes of people who have stockpiled row upon row of newspapers.

"I was on so many medications and they just weren't working," Burke is also heard saying on the clip. "I was on five." Among them, she says are "anti-depressants and stuff."
Oy vey. It's the "and stuff" that always gets people into trouble, Suzanne Sugarbaker! Where's Consuela when you need her?

Here's hoping you makes a swift recovery, of course. Older chubby ladies everywhere have enough problems without worrying about their Delta!

Should we send flowers? I mean, I'll only watch the Designing Women episodes she's in. There's little meaning or purpose to the other ones.
