Socialite Zsa Zsa Gabor will have three-quarters of her right leg amputated today, her publicist John Blanchette tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.

Doctors at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center decided on the procedure after an MRI revealed the infection had gone into the bone.

A press conference is expected to be held at the hospital thereafter, Blanchette said.

Gabor’s husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, is at the hospital with his wife awaiting the surgery.

The 93-year-old’s health took a turn for the worse after she broke her hip after falling out of bed at her Bel Air home July 17, 2010.

She’s also suffered through a 2002 auto accident that left her partially paralyzed, and a massive stroke in July of 2005.

Famous for her catchphrase “dahlink,” Gabor was at the center of one of biggest entertainment stories of the 80s in June 1989, when she slapped a police officer in Beverly Hills and was subsequently arrested and held in custody for three days on charges of driving on an expired license and battery.

Showing her sense of humor about the fiasco, Gabor would parody the run-in in films such as Naked Gun 2 and The Beverly Hillbillies.
