Christina Applegate had some sweet support during her first public appearance since revealing her MS diagnosis in 2021. The actress, who is set to appear in the third and final season of Netflix‘s Dead to Me, releasing Thursday, November 17, was joined by several of her colleagues, both old and new, for the unveiling of her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday, November 14.

The actress was originally supposed to receive her star in 2020, but due to the pandemic, Applegate’s ceremony was delayed, leaving it to take place days away from the debut of Dead to Me. Before the presentation of her star, Applegate was honored by her Married… with Children costars Katey Sagal and David Faustino.
