After her MS diagnosis, the actress is proving that she doesn’t just talk the talk, she walks the walk.
In the Netflix series Dead To Me, Christina Applegate stars as Jen Harding, a widow who has a few issues with the truth. But unlike Jen, Applegate sees honesty as the best policy.
On Thursday night, Applegate revealed to the Twittersphere — and the rest of the world, that as she prepares to re-enter public life, the use of walking sticks has become her “new normal.” In the tweet, with an accompanying photo of a quartet of custom walking sticks, Applegate writes, “I have a very important ceremony coming up. This will be my first time out since [sic] diagnosed with MS.”
For fans who may not recall, in August of 2021, Applegate revealed her diagnosis (also in a tweet) and said that the journey had been strange, but she was “supported by people I know who also have this condition.” She added “It’s been a tough road. But as we all know, the road keeps going. Unless some asshole blocks it.”
