Christina Applegate had to wear diapers after contracting virus from salad

Los Angeles: Actress Christina Applegate shared how she ended up wearing diapers after contracting a virus from a tainted salad.

Applegate recalled the health experience in the latest installment of the Messy podcast, which she co-hosts with Jamie-Lynn Sigler.

In the episode ‘Can I Be Honest?’, Applegate spoke about how her experience began after she contracted Covid from a close friend who “dropped the ball and went to a bowling alley, and came home with the stuff,” reports

The actress, who revealed she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in August 2021, said it turned into long-term COVID, causing her to develop a chest infection where her heart began to do “weird stuff where it speeds up all of a sudden.”

She recalled “p****ng out of my a– for a few days to the point where I was so dizzy. I was so sick, I couldn’t eat, I couldn’t (do) anything.”

After doing a stool test, she was diagnosed with sapovirus, which is “responsible for both sporadic cases and occasional outbreaks of acute gastroenteritis,” according to National Institutes of Health.

The actress said: “It is when you ingest the fecal matter of someone else from your food. Someone else’s poop went into my mouth and I ate it.”

Applegate believes she got the virus from a takeout salad at a restaurant she’s frequented for 15 years and expressed that she woke up “at three o’clock in the morning in a pool of s—.”

“Didn’t know it happened, and having MS at three o’clock in the morning and trying to change your sheets, it’s not fun. But this brings me to my next point, which we can talk about: I’m wearing diapers,” Applegate said.

She noted that they are not “pretty” or “accessible,” to which Sigler, 42, agreed.
