Hollywood legend and goddamn national treasure Zsa Zsa Gabor was rushed to the ER Monday … 2 days after her 99th birthday, bless her heart. Zsa Zsa, of course, has had numerous health complications over the last decade, and hasn’t been seen in public in YEARS.
Yesterday, her ninth husband Frederic von Anhalt said that Gabor was having difficulty breathing.
Zsa Zsa’s doctor came to her home and removed mucus from her throat, but it didn’t cure the problem. Zsa Zsa was admitted to an L.A. hospital Monday morning.
Docs determined she has a feeding tube-related lung infection.
We’re told Zsa Zsa’s scheduled to undergo surgery to have her breathing tube removed.
Gabor – whose beauty and wit made her a talk-show mainstay in the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s – has been in declining health for a while now.
In 2010, she fractured her hip and underwent a successful hip replacement.
In August 2010, Gabor was admitted to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in serious condition and received last rites from a Catholic priest.
In 2011, her right leg was amputated above the knee to save her life from an infection. She was hospitalized again in 2011 for numerous emergencies.
Still, she keeps trucking’ on, though God only knows if she’s even aware of this latest setback.
For those of us of a certain age, it’s hard to conceive of a world without Zsa Zsa in it.
Let’s all takes a moment and celebrate the glamorous life of the Hungarian superstar in her heyday.
