Zsa Zsa Gabor In Hospital With High Fever
Legendary socialite Zsa Zsa Gabor was rushed to UCLA Medical Center this morning, reportedly suffering from high blood pressure and an elevated fever. Doctors began work immediately, but a previously installed feeding tube became dislodged, sharply increasing the severity of the situation. The ninety-four year old has had a slew of medical problems for the past decade, but ever the trooper, sheís recovered from them all.
Gaborís husband Frederic Prinz von Anhalt described her condition to Reuters as being ďvery unstableĒ and not looking good, but doctors have yet to publicly confirm that prognosis. Considering the fame of their patient, they likely will speak on the matter sometime later today.
Once upon a time, Zsa Zsa Gabor was a star. Her leading role in John Hustonís Best Picture nominee Moulin Rouge brought her accolades, but it was her consistent presence on the Hollywood social scene and long string of husbands that attracted the most attention. Ultimately, she had nine including Conrad Hilton and All About Eveís George Sanders, but her relationship with von Anhalt has proven to be the most stable. The couple has been together for twenty-five years, and like his wife was back in the day, he remains a fixture in celebrity gossip magazines.
Younger generations may have missed her during her prime, but in the 40s and 50s, there was no more glamorous woman and no celebrity with a sharper tongue. She once called herself a great housekeeper because every time she left a man, she kept his house. That's both acidic and hilarious. Pop Blend sends out its thoughts to Gabor. May she live to one hundred and twenty.
