Christina Applegate Appears at Hollywood Walk of Fame Ceremony
LOS ANGELES – Using a cane for support and walking slowly, Christina Applegate attended her Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony on Monday, Nov. 14, when she made her first public appearance since disclosing her multiple sclerosis diagnosis in spring 2021.
Applegate had been scheduled to receive her star on the walk in 2020, but the pandemic postponed the original ceremony. She then announced her MS diagnosis on Twitter in 2021 amid production on the third and final season of her Netflix comedy series “Dead to Me.”
Applegate’s “Married…with Children” co-stars Katey Sagal and David Faustino. Sagal choked up when she told Applegate, “You’re not alone. We’re all here.” Applegate’s “Dead to Me” co-star Linda Cardellini along with series creator Liz Feldman were also present.
“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.”
“Dead to Me” Season 3 will premiere on Nov. 17 on Netflix, and it will be the first new project for the actress following her Ms announcement. “People are going to see me for the first time as a disabled person, and it’s very difficult,” she said.
