Christina Applegate to Undergo Reconstructive Surgery

'Samantha Who' star Christina Applegate is talking to TV Guide about her recent battle with breast cancer. She confessed the fight "sucks" but she's getting through it.

"I still have quite a process until this is done," Applegate said in the new issue of TV Guide. "Yes, it's hard. It sucks. But I'm not a victim."

She also admitted that she's going to undergo reconstructive surgery near her 37th birthday, which will be at the end of the month.

During the interview, which should be out in the next week, she even touched on her ex-boyfriend, Lee Grivas' drug overdose. "To be honest, I think that was even more difficult and more painful than anything else," she says of his death. "It still is a lot of the time."

Applegate also confessed that as a celebrity, she feels responsible for spreading the word about breast cancer awareness, which is exactly what she's done.
