The Zsa Zsa Gobar Is The Ancient actress Of
Zsa Zsa Gabor was probably born in 1917, although the zaftig Gabor girls always did their best to muddle up the records (even their mother's reported date of birth varies by as much as five years). As a young girl, Gabor may have competed in the Miss Hungary contest, or maybe not. At different times different Gabor sisters have claimed to have won that pageant, or have been runners-up. In 1937, Gabor married a Turkish foreign affairs minister who was considerably older than she was. She has claimed that they never consummated their marriage. Upon their arrival in
In 1941, having newly arrived in the
Once she had married Sanders, Zsa Zsa decided that she was an actress, and began to appear in films and on television. Her only demanding screen role was in the 1951 film of Moulin Rouge with Jose Ferrer, and during filming, director John Huston frequently humiliated her in front of the entire cast and crew. She took smaller parts in quirkier films throughout the 1950s, and began appearing as herself in cameos in the 1960s. She appeared as the gold-digging villain Minerva on two episodes of Batman, including the last episode.
During her marriage to Sanders, Gabor carried on a torrid affair with Dominican playboy Porfirio Rubirosa, beginning in 1952. Rubirosa left her after she appeared with a knot on her forehead which -- Gabor said -- was the result of a fall, but it was widely speculated that Rubirosa had punched her when she refused to leave her husband. Yet Gabor's marriage to Sanders soon ended, as did Rubirosa's brief marriage to Woolworth heiress Barbara Hutton, and Gabor and Rubirosa rekindled their affair, but in 1954 he gave her a black eye. Gabor dismissed the injury by saying, "Rubi loves me. Rubirosa in Spanish means red rose, for me it means black eye. A man only hits a woman if he loves her deeply."
Gabor was introduced to her next lover "Ramfis"
1968 was a tumultuous year for Zsa Zsa. She slapped a bellboy in a hotel in
Gabor's ex-husband Sanders married her sister Magda in 1970. That marriage, was even more short-lived than his marriage to Zsa Zsa, who reportedly visited Sanders shortly before he committed suicide in 1972.
Gabor was always at her best on talk shows, as she could flash her diamonds and flirt with the host in her exaggerated Hungarian accent. She became famous for her bon mots, such as "Oh, Dahlink, zese are just my vorking diamonds." Other famous Zsa Zsa quips from her numerous appearances on Laugh-In and The Tonight Show include, "I am a marvelous housekeeper. Every time I leave a man I keep his house." and "I have never hated a man enough to give his diamonds back."
In 1982, Gabor had a brief, bigamous marriage to Mexican movie star Felipe de Alba. The wedding took place on a ship and the captain officiated, but they were not yet in international waters, and Gabor was not yet legally divorced from her seventh husband, Michael O'Hara. He had been her divorce lawyer from husband number six, Jack Ryan. Just to be safe, Gabor had the marriage to de Alba annulled.
Gabor married Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt in 1986. It is her longest marriage to date, but contrary to popular belief, the marriage did not make Gabor royalty. Her husband was born Robert Lichtenberg, and as an adult had paid a royal, Marie Auguste Prinzessin von Anhalt, to adopt him -- a service the hard-up castle-owner provided to any customer who could pay. The adoption did not make Lichtenberg legally a prince or noble, it only gave him a more impressive-sounding name.
In 1989, Gabor was pulled over in
In 1993, Gabor was sued for libel, and ordered to pay more than one million dollars to actress Elke Sommer. The feud between the two blondes apparently began when Sommer said that Gabor had a big behind, and Gabor told the press that Sommer's career was washed up. The actual libel suit was brought about when Gabor's husband, von Anhalt né Lichtenberg, claimed that Sommer had said, "All German men are pigs." Losing the lawsuit forced Gabor into bankruptcy. In 2005 Gabor and von Anhalt sued her daughter, Francesca Hilton, for allegedly forging Gabor's signature on a loan on Gabor's home and stealing at least millions. At von Anhalt's request, however, the lawsuit was dropped in September 2007.
In 2002, Gabor was injured when a car she was riding in, driven by her hairstylist, hit a lamp post. She remains partially paralyzed and wheelchair-bound from the accident, or from a rumored 2003 stroke. She was hospitalized after a stroke in 2005, and again after a fall from her bed in 2010. She has not spoken to the press since about 2002.
Zsa Zsa Gabor Wants To Spend 'Final Days' At Home
Zsa Zsa Gabor, 93, has gone home from the hospital because she "wants to spend her final days at her home," says publicist John Blanchette.
Gabor, 93, has been suffering complications from last month's hip-replacement surgery. She and her husband decided against additional surgery - a liver operation, publicist John Blanchette said Monday.

"The doctors did everything they could do," her husband, Prince Frederic Von Anhalt told CNN. "The rest is up to her to whether she recovers or not."
