Zsa Zsa Gabor returns to hospital, inconsolable after Elizabeth Taylor's death
Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband Frederic Prinz von Anhalt said he was taking his wife to the hospital after the actress learned her close friend Elizabeth Taylor had passed away on Wednesday morning and she was overcome with grief, according to Gabor's rep.
"She was inconsolable and her blood pressure shot up to dangerous levels," Gabor's spokesperson told OnTheRedCarpet.com in a statement. "So the doctor told him to bring her into the hospital so they could medicate and watch her."
Taylor and Gabor, 94, had been friends for decades and Gabor apparently thinks that she hasn't got long to live.
"Zsa Zsa said 'Celebrities go in threes and I'm next,'" Prinz von Anhalt had told RadarOnline, referring to Taylor, 79, who passed away after spending six weeks in the hospital for congestive heart failure and Hollywood icon Jane Russell, 89, who died in February.
Gabor's spokesperson confirmed his comments.
Gabor was released from the hospital at the beginning of the month after blood-flow problems and had one of her legs amputated in January after doctors found an infection and antibiotics failed to heal it.
Gabor has been in and out of the hospital since she broke her hip on July 17 after she fell out of her bed while reaching to answer her telephone as she was watching "Jeopardy!".
She underwent a hip operation but has suffered several complications. During one of her hospital stays in August, she had a priest read her last rites. Gabor is partially paralyzed from a 2002 car accident and uses a wheelchair. She also reportedly had a stroke in 2005.Gabor is reported to have been born in Budapest on Feb. 6, 1917 as Sari Gabor. She married von Anhalt in 1986. Gabor was married to Hilton, the great-grandfather of socialite Paris Hilton, from 1942 to 1947.
Gabor followed her actress sister Eva to Hollywood, where she later starred in movies herself, starting in 1952 with the films "Lovely to Look At," "We're Not Married!" and "Moulin Rouge." She also played herself in a brief scene in the 1991 Leslie Nielsen cop movie "The Naked Gun 2-1/2: The Smell of Fear," in which she parodied an incident from about a year earlier in which she was convicted of slapping a police officer during a traffic dispute. She also had a cameo in the film "A Very Brady Sequel" in 1996.
