From the Boston Globe — Ame Van Iden, the 36-year-old Applegate's publicist, released this statement:

Most recently Christina can be seen on her sitcom ABC's Samantha Who?, which she has earned a Golden Globe and Emmy nomination for her role.

Applegate began her career as Kelly Bundy on Married … with Children on the Fox network in 1987.  On the raunchy comedy, that lasted 11 seasons, she played a sexy, yet ditzy teenager.
