Ailing actress/socialite Zsa Zsa Gabor has been rushed to the hospital after taking a turn for the worse, RadarOnline.com is reporting.
Her publicist told RadarOnline.com: “She’s been spitting up blood and in a lot of pain. She has taken a turn, not recognizing (her husband) Frederic at one point, and when the doctor came in to the house to check her out, she started screaming at him ‘Who are you? What are you doing to me?’
“I’m told she’s been going downhill since she got home from the hospital.
“The doctor called the ambulance, she is in route now to the hospital.”
Gabor’s 94th birthday is this Sunday.
Over the last decade, Gabor had suffered through an auto accident that left her partially paralyzed in 2002, and a massive stroke in July of 2005.
Gabor, often described as the “original Paris Hilton,” enjoyed the fame and notoriety borne out of her taste for excess — and husbands, as she was married nine times, the last to husband Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt in 1986. She was also married to Hilton family patriarch Conrad from 1942-1946. Her late sisters, Eva and Magda, were also prominent queens of high society.
Synonymous with 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. She was also fined $13,000 in court costs in connection with the incident. Showing her sense of humor about the affair, Gabor would parody the well-publicized run-in in films such as Naked Gun 2 1/2 and The Beverly Hillbillies.
In recent years, Gabor made headlines, like many other celebs, as a victim of Bernie Madoff. Her attorney said in 2009 that the Ponzi scheme mastermind may have swindled Gabor and her husband out of as much as $10 million.
