Christina Applegate Talks Breast Cancer Surgery

Samantha Who? star Christina Applegate caused quite a stir at the Emmys when she showed up on the red carpet in a dramatic silk organza Reem Acra design.

The 36-year-old actress turned heads with her light-blue and gold frock but also because it was the first major public appearance since the news of her breast cancer diagnosis broke.

Applegate chatted with Oprah on her talk show about her struggle with breast cancer and her decision to have both breasts removed to fight the disease.

“When I met with my doctor and I told him that was my decision and he
brought the surgeon in, it was like the flood gates just opened up. I
lost it,” Christina told the talk show host. Bless her heart, she says
that’s the first time she cried since being diagnosed with the disease.

Now, the actress will be undergoing eight months of reconstructive
surgery on her breasts. If I could telegraph a hug anyone’s way, it
would be going to her.
