Zsa Zsa Gabor

Zsa Zsa Gabor (born February 6, 1917) is a Hungarian actress and socialite, who, like her two sisters, is best known for her beauty and wealthy lifestyle.

She was born Sári Gábor in Budapest, Hungary, the second of three daughters born to Vilmos Gábor (a soldier) and Jolie Gabor (née Jancsi Tilleman).

The birth years of the Gabor sisters were often lied about and remain uncertain. Her sisters are Magda and Eva. Zsa Zsa often claimed to have won the "Miss Hungary" beauty contest in 1936, but Jolie sometimes claimed she had won it. Gabor's maternal family was Jewish and her maternal grandparents died in the Holocaust. Biographers speculate that her paternal family was originally Jewish as well, but converted to Catholicism in order to assimilate, although this has not been confirmed.

Zsa Zsa is known for her affection for jewels, her quick wit, as well as referring to everyone she speaks with as "darling", but acquired a reputation for matrimony. Zsa Zsa is also the only Gabor sister to bear a child.

She has had nine husbands:

  1. 1937–1941 Burhan Belge, press director for the foreign ministry of Turkey, later known as a writer and diplomat
  2. 1942–1946 Conrad Hilton, Hilton Hotel magnate
  3. 1949–1954 George Sanders, actor
  4. 1964–1966 Herbert Hutner, financial consultant
  5. 1966–1967 Joshua S. Cosden, Jr., oil heir and businessman
  6. 1975–1976 Jack Ryan, inventor associated with the Barbie and Chatty Cathy dolls
  7. 1977–1982 Michael O'Hara
  8. 1982–1982 Felipe de Alba--invalid marriage; it was bigamous, as Zsa Zsa was still married to Michael O'Hara, and it was performed by a ship's captain at sea, but not in international waters.
  9. 1986— Frederick Prinz von Anhalt

She and Hilton had one daughter, Francesca Hilton. Sanders later married Zsa Zsa's sister, Magda, and ultimately committed suicide. Zsa Zsa underwent a marriage ceremony with Felipe de Alba in 1982, but the marriage was of doubtful legality. It was performed by a ship's captain at sea, but not in international waters, and was bigamous because she was still married to Michael O'Hara. The marriage, which in any case lasted but one day, was therefore invalid on several grounds. An annulment was obtained for good measure.

Despite the implications of the name "Frederick Prinz von Anhalt," this husband is neither royal nor a prince. He was born "Robert Lichtenberg" and was adopted (as an adult) by Marie Auguste Prinzessin von Anhalt (who used such adoptions as a source of income). Via the adoption, he obtained the surname "Prinz von Anhalt," but did not in the process obtain a title or noble status: Therefore, Zsa Zsa is not, as is sometimes stated, a "Princess of Anhalt".

Zsa Zsa was also linked romantically with Porfirio Rubirosa, a noted Dominican international playboy and sometime diplomat. She refused to leave George Sanders to marry him, whereupon Rubirosa thereupon married Barbara Hutton (for seventy-three days) and then renewed his relationship with Zsa Zsa.

Among the movies Zsa Zsa appeared in were her starring role as dancer Jane Avril in Moulin Rouge (1952), Lili (1953), Queen of Outer Space (1958), and Touch of Evil (1958).

Though her movies continued, their quality did not, and her later career was as a celebrity rather than a serious actress. The Gabor sisters (competing with each other for the limited number of roles they might play with Hungarian accents) often engaged in always well-publicized "feuds," but it was Zsa Zsa who seemed to thrive on adverse publicity.

On June 14, 1989, Zsa Zsa was accused of slapping the face of a Beverly Hills police officer when he stopped her for a traffic violation . She was found guilty of the assault in a well-publicized trial and sentenced to three days in jail (and required to pay $13,000 in court costs).

Recently Zsa Zsa accused her daughter, Francesca Hilton, of larceny and fraud, and was forced to file suit against Francesca in a California court, in which proceedings are currently proceeding, as per the tabloid "The Globe", as well as the following Internet sites:

Recent health

Zsa Zsa was a passenger in an automobile accident that occurred November 27, 2002, that was initially reported as having sent her into a coma, but the report was in error. She was conscious by the time medical assistance arrived. She left the hospital in early January 2003, facing continued physical therapy.

On July 7, 2005, Zsa Zsa suffered a massive stroke leaving her in critical condition at a local hospital. She underwent surgery to remove a blockage in her carotid artery. She returned home on July 15 and is said to be making quite an excellent recovery, given her age, and her husband appears to be taking very good care of her.
