And I'm not talking about the sadness that she must feel when people still refer to her as being Kelly Bundy. Applegate has been around so long in television and the movies that people underestimate the professional quality that she brings to the projects she's involved in. I've always valued her immense grasp of comedy and how to work a scene.
But the scene this week included the death of her off-again, on-again boyfriend, Lee Grivas. A neighbor found his body on July 1st and it is being speculated that the cause of death was linked to his battle with heroin addiction. The couple had a tumultuous relationship, starting when they met in 2006 when she was in "Sweet Charity" on Broadway, mainly tied into his drug issues.
Previously married to actor Johnathon Schaech and going into promotion soon for her summer movie, THE ROCKER with Rainn Wilson, Applegate also is rumoured to be in production on another movie entitled EVERYTHING'S GOING TO BE JUST FINE. Let's hope that her life turns out to be as prophetic as that title.
