The last time I wrote about precious Hungarian diamond Zsa Zsa Gabor, she had just realized that one of her legs was amputated…over 6 months beforehand. That sad story took the sparkle out of every rhinestone broach from here to Budapest. That was over 3 years ago. I was hoping that Zsa Zsa would eventually make her grand return to the spotlight by using her diamond-encrusted prosthetic leg to kick the likes of the Kartrashians off of the ho stroll, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen anytime soon.
Zsa Zsa’s 99th birthday was a few days ago and I’m sure we all celebrated by toasting to her with a Waterford crystal champagne flute (read: a plastic backyard cup from CB2) full of vintage Dom Perignon (read: sparkling white grape soda and Belle Ambiance Pinot Grigio from Target) while wearing a Cartier tiara (read: a tiara made from aluminum foil balls). But now we need to take off our aluminum foil tiaras and form a prayer circle because she’s in the hospital.
Zsa Zsa’s husband Frederic von Anhalt (Remember him?) tells TMZ that she was taken to the hospital on Monday after she had trouble breathing at home. Before she went to the hospital, her doctor went to her house and tried to fix her breathing woes by removing mucus from her throat. That didn’t work. Zsa Zsa was later admitted into the hospital. The doctors discovered that she has a lung infection caused by her feeding tube. They’re going to take her to surgery where her breathing tube will be removed.
During the past 14 or so years, Zsa Zsa has been through it. She was left partially paralyzed after a car accident, she had a stroke, she had hip replacement surgery, she had her leg amputated and now this. Every time the Grim Reaper comes to visit, she slaps him down. Keep slapping that whore, Zsa Zsa!
