'Dead to Me' Pauses Production, Netflix Releases Statement on Christina Applegate's MS Diagnosis

Late last night, Christina Applegate revealed her devastating health news: she has multiple sclerosis (commonly abbreviated to MS).

“Hi friends. A few months ago I was diagnosed with MS,” the 49-year-old actress announced on her Twitter account. “It’s been a strange journey. But I have been so supported by people that I know who also have this condition. It’s been a tough road. But as we all know, the road keeps going. Unless some asshole blocks it.”

Now, Netflix has released a statement. Netflix airs Christina‘s hit show, Dead to Me, which also stars Linda Cardellini.
