Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor will undergo hip replacement surgery on Monday after an accident in her Bel Air home this weekend, has learned.

The 93-year-old Hungarian-born star broke her hip after falling out of bed Saturday night, when she reached to answer the phone.

She was watching her favorite show, Jeopardy!, at the time.

Gabor remains hospitalized at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles hospital with her husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, and other family members by her bedside.

Gabor's publicist John Blanchette says von Anhalt called him around 8 p.m. Saturday to say he had called an ambulance and taken Gabor to UCLA, where she was in serious condition.

“He said it was bad. She had broken several bones,” Blanchette said.

Gabor has been partially paralyzed ever since a car accident back in 2002, and Blanchette, who had visited her in the past few months, said she had been “pretty much bedridden and wheelchair-bound for the last eight years.”

“She’s fragile," he said, but "she’s still very bright. She still makes me laugh. Her faculties are intact, but her body’s failing her.”

In addition to the car accident, Gabor had also suffered a stroke in 2005.

In recent years, Gabor's acting career became overshadowed by her string of eight marriages and for slapping a Beverly Hills police officer back in 1989.

Her more prominent films include John Huston's 1952 Moulin Rouge and Orson Welles' classic Touch of Evil, in 1958.
