Delta Burke Checks into Psychiatric Hospital

Delta Burke, 51, has checked into a psychiatric ward for treatment of hoarding, OCD, and depression. The actress did an interview with TMZ in which she explained that her meds weren't working and she needed help getting them sorted out.

"I've been here a week. I came in because I was on so many medications and they just weren't working, and I knew I needed to get my meds worked out, and that's a very long, tedious procedure ... Even if you're just on one or two. I'm on five. We were thinking that maybe I hadn't been properly diagnosed. Because some of these meds, it didn’t seem like they were working ...Have you seen those shows where they don't find the body for days and they go in to clean up and there are stacks of newspapers up to the ceiling? That's hoarding. And I hate it."

Burke is married to actor Gerald McRaney.
