When I was a young in the 80s, I remember my grandmother watching the television show, Married with Children. She was a huge fan, and rarely missed an episode. She had red hair, and Peggy Bundy had red hair, and now that I think about it, her husband’s name was Al, (LMAO), so I think there was a natural attraction going on there.
As I got older, I began to watch the show, and even today, I still watch whatever episodes are available on YouTube. Married With Children is timeless-it just never gets old, and it’s one of those shows you grow to love and the characters as well.
Of course, as a young boy, I loved Christiana Applegate, but the older I got, the more appreciation I had for Al.
But, as far as Christina Applegate is concerned, Married With Children put her on the map. She had, I think, a few smaller roles in lesser known shows, but Married With Children was IT for her. She was 15 when she began that job, and I don’t think you can ever mention Christina Applegate without mentioning Married With Children.
Now, check this out!
I was watching Forensics Files Season 6 Episode 11. That show was about the murder of a beautiful, I mean BEAUTIFUL, young gorgeous blonde from southern California named Linda Sobek.
She was a cheerleader for the NFL Raiders, and a model. She was 5’3″ 110 lbs. with a rock hard abdomen.
On November 16, 1995, Linda who was 27-years old at the time, was paged for a last minute photo shoot. She grabbed her belongings and left her house.
Linda was never seen or heard from again, but what got the ball rolling on the investigation of her disappearance was because she didn’t show up for her audition later that same day for a role on Married with Children!
How different might’ve things been for Christina Applegate and her career if Linda Sobek showed up and won the role for Kelly Bundy?
Where would Christina Applegate be today without Married With Children?
It’s awfully coincidental.
