On Sunday, the world lost one of its most prized living possessions, as the multi-hyphenate socialite Zsa Zsa Gabor passed away at the possibly-not-confirmed age of 99 years old. (And I have to assume that Ms. Gabor would insist she possessed the world, not the other way around.) For so many decades, she embodied entertainment with a lavish style, a fierce wit, an impenetrable bravado, and a voice that couldn't be mistaken, dah-ling. And understandably, a legion of fans and adorers are in mourning.
But mourning doesn't necessarily mean somber songs and dark clothing, for this is Zsa Zsa Gabor, people! Twitter lit up with an outpouring of loving reactions to her passing, with dozens of her best quotes repeatedly popping up. Here's a round-up of some of the best tweets honoring the legendary celeb as we wait to hear about her impending biopic. Let's start off with a bang, shall we?
Gabor has famously said she used her most famous endearment "darling" so often because she couldn't remember people's names, and it's nearly impossible to say "darling" without hearing her voice.
Barbara Eden, fellow 1960s TV star (of I Dream of Jeannie fame), also shared her condolences. If only we got to hear some of the stories about the times she's referring to.
Comedian James Adomian shared a personal anecdote from when he was a child.
The wrath of 2016 on celebrities has been seemingly worse than previous years, and many tweets called out the year as being the only thing that could actually take Zsa Zsa Gabor down. That sentiment is summed up nicely here.
And it's probably best that we end on a note as fitting as this.
We at CinemaBlend send our thoughts and condolences to the family and friends of Zsa Zsa Gabor in their time of mourning.
