Christina Applegate made her first public appearance on November 14, 2022, after revealing in the spring of 2021 that she had multiple sclerosis (MS). The actress attended the ceremony for her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Her Walk of Fame star was planned to be unveiled in 2021, but the COVID-19 epidemic stymied plans. While filming the third and final season of “Dead to Me,” the actress confirmed her MS diagnosis on Twitter.
Her “Married…with Children” co-stars, David Faustino and Katey Sagal, paid tribute to her at the Walk of Fame ceremony before she arrived. Sagal was overcome with emotion as she informed Christina that she is not by yourself. Everyone has arrived.
Liz Feldman, the program’s creator, and Christina’s co-star on the show, Linda Cardellini, also attended the ceremony to celebrate the actress.
She admitted that filming the last season of “Dead to Me” while facing her diagnosis was “difficult.” The actress’s situation was so poor that she needed a wheelchair to go to the series’ set.
She recalls phoning her coworkers to inform them of her illness. While Christina was able to attend the ceremony that honored her with a star, she also delivered a statement at the occasion but did not explicitly address her illness, just addressing it in passing.
Christina, who was given a chair to sit on, highlighted her unique biography during her address during the event. The actress recalled waiting in line on the same street where the event was hosted as a child to see “Star Wars” at the same cinema.

The actress recalls wondering who the individuals on the Walk of Fame were and whether they accomplished something good or bad. She did, though, know she wanted one of the stars; and while the star did not specify her illness, she did say she can’t bear it any longer.
So Christina said she wished to thank people she wanted to thank, and she thanked her family for speaking about her that day. She also thanked Sagal, Faustino, Cardellini, and Feldman, saying they were her “all.”
Beginning with the first two stars stated above, the star choked up as she characterized Faustino and Sagal as her “loves” and “people.” Christina praised her colleagues for their support over the last two decades.
She also mentioned how her mom used to compare changing agents to changing Titanic deck chairs. The honoree proudly disclosed that she had stayed with her and assumed they would die together.
The actress expressed thanks to her family, saying she didn’t have friends but considered them as family, and a Twitter user said Christina “deserves the world.” She described how they “take care of her” on a regular basis, and how she wouldn’t have known what to do without them.
Christina almost burst into tears when talking about her daughter, Sadie Grace, describing her as the most important person in the world. She was nice, attractive, clever, loving, and intriguing, the actress told her daughter.
Christina described her kid as “her everything” and said she felt grateful every day to get up and take her to school. She also expressed gratitude to Sadie for being at her side during it all, before joking that she had an illness!
The star jokingly asked those gathering whether they’d noticed she wasn’t wearing shoes. Sadie’s mother dismissed her final remarks, claiming that the audience was expected to laugh at those parts!
Christina had just one kid in 2022, whom she shared with her long-term partner. With him, the actress has raised their daughter in a secluded and closed-off manner.
