Christina Applegate


Christina Applegate just revealed that she has 30 lesions on her brain due to her courageous battle with MS. We just learned that Christina has turned to the Wahl Protocol Diet in hopes of alleviating her debilitating symptoms. The diet, developed by MS inflicted Dr. Terry Wahl, has proven to help many patients although it will take time to see if Christina benefits from the plan -which includes lots of leafy greens, lean meats and limited sweets and dairy.

A few days ago, Diddy’s multiple homes were raided by the Department of Homeland Security over allegations and sex trafficking and we are now hearing that his ex-girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez has been asked to sit for an interview! Both the FBI and Homeland Security are curious to find out what she may have seen when she and Diddy were a thing from 1999-2001. My source says that J.Lo is LIVID over being dragged into this mess, but nonetheless plans to cooperate since she doesn’t want to risk getting subpoenaed.

Carol Burnett is still making headlines at 90-years-old thanks to her turn on Palm Royale, the hot new series on Apple TV+. Carol has gotten rave reviews for her performance in the campy comedy/drama and now the folks at Saturday Night Live have noticed. Despite her illustrious comedic career, Carol has never hosted SNL. That could be about to change as we just heard that producers are trying to work with her schedule about hosting the still popular show as the end of this season or more likely early next season.

The world found out this week that pro footballer Aaron Rodgers won’t be RFK Jr.’s vice-presidential running mate, as Kennedy chose Bay Area mogul Nicole Shanahan as his pick. Here’s what we know: Aaron was actually asked before Nicole to join the ticket but he was never going to run with Kennedy because he has other political aspirations. As my source put it, he didn’t want to shoot his shot on this long-shot campaign but instead plans to run for Senator once he retires from football.

Beyoncé’s country album drops this week and here’s something you read here FIRST. Weeks ago we told you Beyonce was doing a duet with legend Dolly Parton and in the just released soundtracks it shows she’s covering Dolly’s popular sing Jolene. Our source says Dolly and Beyonce did a duet for the album and hoped to keep it a secret, which they did for everyone else BUT this website.



It’s been 30 years since Christina Applegate opened her a popular, but short-lived restaurant, RubiRosa, in West Hollywood, and now she’s hoping to re-create the magic. The Married with Children star has put acting on the back burner due to her battle with MS, but she wants to keep herself busy. She’s been telling friends that even though her restaurant only lasted a few years, she had some of the best times of her life there. Christina’s hoping lightning strikes twice and she’s looking at available spaces in the West Hollywood area to open up a hip vegetarian restaurant. She’s altered her diet due to her health issues and has gotten creative with her vegetarian cooking – her kale lasagna (!) is one of her specialties. It is still in the planning stages, so we’ll keep you posted as we hear more updates…

It’s Jean Smart to the rescue. The multiple Emmy winner has been a close friend of Christina Applegate since they costarred in the sitcom Samantha Who? back in 2007 – Jean played Christina’s mom on the series. Now Jean is using her clout to get Christina a guest starring role on her hit show Hacks. Christina has all but retired from acting as she deals with her MS diagnosis, but Jean is creating a part that will incorporate Christina’s illness and accommodate her limited mobility. My insider says that Jean has enough power to call the shots and she feels getting Christina in front of the camera again, even if just for one episode, will be just what the doctor ordered…

Looks like Christina Applegate will slip into Beverly D’Angelo’s shoes in the reboot of the 1980s family comedy Vacation. Ed Helms of Bachelor Party fame is signed to play the Chevy Chase “Dad” role. The reboot will be updated in that the son Rusty (originated by Anthony Michael Hall) now grown up and married, will take his wife and kids on a vacation similar to the one he remembers with his family in the 80’s. Ed Helms will play the grown up Rusty and Christina will play his restless wife. The original Vacation was written by John Hughes and directed by Harold Ramis – it will be interesting to compare the two.
