We've watched her in movies and in her younger days as Kelly Bundy on "Married With Children." She has a connection to Savannah as well, having filmed "Claudine's Return" in 1998 on Tybee.
These days Christina Applegate faces a new challenge in her life.
Today (Monday) she attended her Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony on Monday, Nov. 14, which notably marked the Emmy winner’s first public appearance since disclosing her multiple sclerosis diagnosis in spring 2021. She announced her MS diagnosis on Twitter in 2021 amid production on the third and final season of her Netflix comedy “Dead to Me.”
She was honored at the Walk of Fame ceremony by her “Married…with Children” co-stars Katey Sagal and David Faustino (Bud Bundy). Sagal choked up when she told Applegate, “You’re not alone. We’re all here.”
Applegate took to the podium at the Walk of Fame ceremony assisted by Sagal, who stayed on stage with her during her speech. Applegate broke down in tears while talking about her daughter and thanking her for supporting her through her MS diagnosis.
“The most important person in this world is my daughter,” Applegate said. “You are so much more than even you know. You are so beautiful and kind and smart and interesting. I’m blessed every day that I get to wake up and take you to school…thank you for standing by me through all of this.”
Applegate said filming the final season of “Dead to Me” while battling MS was “hard as you would possibly think it would be.” The actor had to use a wheelchair to get to set.
“Dead to Me” Season 3 debuts Nov. 17 on Netflix, and it will be the first new project of Applegate’s released following her announcement about MS. “People are going to see me for the first time as a disabled person, and it’s very difficult,” Applegate told Variety about the show debuting and her first public appearances, which is also set to include the “Dead to Me” premiere on Nov. 15
This is not the first health issue that Applegate has faced. In 2008, she made the decision to remove both of her breasts in a double mastectomy.
