Christina Applegate's Longest Hour


On Tuesday night, Christina Applegate went to the American Idol taping. Of course because she is Christina Applegate and not the usual Z list stars or some 8th place contestant from Season 4 or something like that, they gave her a very good seat. So good in fact that everytime the cameras showed the judges, there was Christina. The problem with that whole scenario is that almost as soon as the cameras started rolling, Christina started to become violently ill.

"I got really sick, like, right when I got there... You can see me... and I was holding in vomit... I was shaking... Somebody said, 'Were you crying?'"

Apparently Christina has not been feeling well lately, but thought she was up to attending Idol on Tuesday. Can you imagine the feeling knowing you are stuck there, on national television, being watched by millions of people and trying not to get sick. It had to have been the most miserable feeling ever. Yes, even more miserable than the time she had to make out with Matt LeBlanc on Married With Children.

i like her, but i have to question...why go in the first place? if she became violently ill, chances are they may have been previous signs of not feeling so hot at some point during the day.

it's not like she couldn't have scheduled for another day and that was the absolute one and only opportunity she was going to get to see the show live.

I fast-forwarded through much of AI this week but saw her at one point and thought she looked miserable. I was wondering why she was there, because she looked very unhappy and almost angry at a point where people were clapping and cheering. I guess that's why! I'm still unsure why she felt the need to sit through the whole taping; it's one thing to promote your show, but seeing her look so horrible gave me a very negative impression of her at the time.

Maybe she accidently swapped drinks with Paula. God only knows what she spikes her cups with...

Or sitting in close proximity to Simon. That would make me ill.

Ryan Secrest makes me violently ill, too.

I would have left rather than lose my lunch on national TV.

Then again, Christina puking on Simon would have been pretty funny.

My first thought was chemo or some other cancer treatment.

I feel for her, what a terrible experience.

That had to have been horrible!!

Though I was really disappointed to see her smoking in the random photo's this week. I hope that was an old photo.

Emma, I was disappointed too. :(

Sylvia said...

Amazonblue, I was wondering the same thing about chemo.

She probably thought she would shake it off, or it would pass quickly. Poor girl. I hope it's nothing too serious.

I watched her on Jimmy Kimmel telling the vomit story. It was so much better than the usual drivel celebs chat about. You could tell Jimmy was excited that she was actually revealing someting more interesting than the scripted crap he has to put up with.
