Christina Applegate diagnosed with breast cancer

August 3rd, 2008 // 74 Comments

Christina Applegate has been diagnosed with breast cancer, according to her publicist. E! Online reports:

“Benefiting from early detection through a doctor-ordered MRI, the cancer is not life threatening,” publicist Ame Van Iden said. “Christina is following the recommended treatment of her doctors and will have a full recovery. No further statement will be issued at this time.”
Applegate’s rep also tells E! News that the 36-year-old Emmy nominee will maintain her regular shooting schedule on Samantha Who? while undergoing treatment.

Christina’s mother, actress Nancy Priddy, is a breast cancer survivor. The Superficial hopes for a similar outcome and wishes Christina a full and speedy recovery.

    Good for her. She is my favorite. Just saw her personals ID on millionaires personals site “”"”"W e a l t h y R o m a n c e. co m”"”"”" yesterday. I am wondering what kind of relationship she is looking for on that site. Is she single again?

    those mark ecko campaigns make me sick.

  4. Thisone is defenitely true:
    (remember these words.)

  5. She’s always been a classy lady and has made me hard for a long time. I hope she’ll be fine. She’ll always make me hard.

    Numbers 1,2,3: Simply unbelievable. Shame on the three of you. Dumbasses.

    Christina Applegate is great in every respect. Full and speedy recovery is certainly in order. Now if they could find a fix for what ails the dipshit who posted 1st…

  8. I wonder if kissing them will make them all better, like my high school English teacher did for me when I got hit in the groin with a kick ball? I miss her…

    I’d prefer you post some bikini pictures so I may provide a second opinion.

  10. Kathleen

    She looks great in these photos.
    I hope she makes a full recovery.

  11. Biteme

    What a shame, especially since her boobs are the only thing remotely interesting about this bitch. SAVE THE BOOBS!

  12. Imelda_Marcos

    Hey, Mary234, Any chance you will get tit cancer real, real soon and fuck off. Cheers, Imelda.

    That’s true for about 10% of life’s obstacles, maybe less. Things like heart attacks, strokes, etc. don’t make you stronger, mentally or physically. Hell, ask John Graziano how much stronger he is now.

    The Superficial, Fish, there’s GOT to be a way to do reprimand these spammers (Mary234). I usually ignore them and carry on. But this time they got the number one comment on a post about a classy young actress diagnosed with breast cancer with a “Good for her”. That takes the cake.

  15. isitin

    #11, maybe on this really nice Monday you will have a heart attack & die. Just remember, no one will miss you not even your family.

  16. morga

    agreeing w/ #14, couldn’t take more than a minute to moderate these sites, they don’t get that much traffic

    sad news about Applegate, though…..she actually seems like a decent person compared to most of Hollywood

  17. veggi

    I was wondering what was eating her.

  18. Making my donation to save the breasts foundation right now.

  19. “Christina’s mother, actress Nancy Priddy, is a breast cancer survivor.”

    Gross – so now the whole family has disgusting mutilated scarred up skinbags they have the gall to still refer to as “breasts”? They need to go off someplace and die with dignity.

    Meh. She was really hot as Kelly Bundy in the early part of the show’s run, but she was already looking a little beat by the time it ended. These days, she seems nice enough but she’s way over the hill, looks-wise. If you’re rubbing one out to her, it’s definitely nostalgia. Now with the beat-up boob it’s completely over. But she’s still ok at sitcoms, maybe she can do one called “Lumpy’s Place.”

    re: #7: “Now if they could find a fix for what ails the dipshit who posted 1st…”

    I hear murder/suicide works great. (Sorry, I know that was tasteless but I couldn’t resist…)

  22. isitin

    #19, just saw your ugly old “fat” photos on your Myspace page. Can’t actually believe you would put those Gross photos of your fat self on that website. I think you should go up to the mountains of Arkansas where you live & kill yourself, but do it with dignity.

    #1 spammed “Is she single again?”

    Depends on whether she got a mastectomy.

  26. Ted Mosby

    Wish her breast of luck.

    Seriously though, hope she recovers quickly and fully.

    You complete and utter cunt.

    You think that’s funny to write that? You’re really rad, witty and anti-establishment aren’t you? I see now…anything can be humour, right?

    Well I don’t see much that’s funny about an actress about to fight for her life.

    As for the mastectomy “joke” – listen, you fuck, she was never “single” in the first place – she’s had two breasts for as long as she’s had them, so your joke not only is completely tastless and crap, but it also doesn’t work.

    I pray she can fight it without any kind of mastectomy or scars, and can go back to work a bigger and stronger person for her fight.

    And the person who wrote comment no. 25?

    Doesn’t the Good Witch wear the same dress in “The Wizard of Oz.” ????

    # 25 veggie –

    Your comment was really out of line, even for The Superficial, so you should apologize and make a retraction like Mel Gibson and the rest of them.

  30. Cindy

    I love when a spirited (flaming?) defense of womanhood begins with “You complete and utter cunt.”.

  31. CJ

    Caught early…..she stands a really great chance of beating it….and best thoughts and wishes go with her during the treatment phase!

  32. mike

    I dunno, I think what I love best is anonymous commenters who anoint themselves as moderators (“Your comment was really out of line, even for The Superficial”). #29, you’re as worthless a piece of shit as the rest of us who hang out here and crack on the celebs, so STFU, hypocrite.

  33. Sandwarrior

    I would take a single breasted Christiana over a full monty Madona any day.

  34. Harry Ballzack

    #1 – WTF ?
    “Good for her? – She’s your favorite?”
    Funny way of showing how much you like her by saying it’s good for her that she’s got cancer


  35. Sandwarrior

    I would take a single breasted Christina over a full monty Madona any day.

  36. farthammer

    Remember when she made fun of River Phoenix that night he died? That was awesome.

  37. Rick

    I wish her luck with her battle (and sympathy, with the whole “not-a-woman-anymore” thing).

  38. Ms. Whiplash

    Farthammer, oooh I missed (or maybe forgot about) that one. What happened there?

  39. Skeps

    All I can say is, Who?

  40. Butt Munch


    i hope everything works out well for her.
    its too bad that for most of us a docter wouldnt be willing to put soo much effort into a person and actually say they can make a full recovery.
    but i guess money and all that does give you a few steps up in life.

    anyway christina is very pretty and a great actress, she has real personality and it shows in her films! get better.

  41. sameshitdifferentyear

    She was so fine in Married With Children. Seems like she could almost be a normal human being, I guess that’s a plus. Fucking 30 year olds are getting breast cancer now, what the fuck.

  42. Lissa

    Jesus christ. What is wrong with people. This really is a mysogynist place when a perfectly nice woman is diagnosed with breast cancer and all most people can do is make lewd comments about her breasts and how hot she is. What has her hotness got to do with anything? I’m hoping most of the nasty comments on this page have been made by just a couple of people posting many times and that most people are not so horrible.
    *waits for the “you’re just a jealous fat lesbian” comments to roll in* – always smart retorts those, aren’t they?

  43. HotMilli

    What no link to Bikini Pics?

  44. Matt

    If they have to remove her boob, can I have it?

  45. Leave her alone

    C’mon everyone knows Veggi is a stupid middle aged whore. Probably hangs out with younger crowd doing pot, ectasy and coke you name it. 10 years behind her time but when the wrinkles set in it will be a rude awakening. I know people like her. Reminds me of that Pink Floyd song “Time”.

    I seriously hope nothing awful or life-threatening happens to you, you sick, twisted, bored, pre-pubescent, mindless FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT.

    Good lord, this place has completely lost its sense of humor. It’s supposed to be off-color, politically incorrect stuff, not fawning tributes. Go over to if you want to “share your emotions.”

  48. J@cko

    I really enjoyed her work on “Married with children”. Dunno much about the rest of her career. Get well Christina!

  49. big z

    She looks classy. I love her. I saw her profile on millionaire personals site “”"”"”"”"W e a l t h y L o v e m”"”"”"”"”" last week. Is she single now? Just curious!
