The last surviving member of Hollywood’s glamorous Gabor Sisters has opted to spend what will likely be her last days on Earth at home with dignity.
Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor has decided to spend her final days at her Bel Air home after declining to undergo any more surgery, her longtime publicist John Blanchette said on Monday.
She’s now going in and out of consciousness.
Gabor, 93, was given the last rites by a priest in hospital over the weekend after undergoing a series of setbacks following a fall and hip replacement surgery last month.
Blanchette says doctors at UCLA/Ronald Reagan Medical Center in Los Angeles were ready to perform a liver operation that would give her a 50-50 chance survival rate, but gave up on the idea after the actress insisted she wanted to return home. Gabor and her husband, Frederick Prinz von Anhalt, decided “she wanted to spend her final days at home.”
“She had a great run,” Blanchette said. “She’s 93. She knew five presidents…she knew kings and queens, celebrities.”
A spokesman for Gabor’s daughter Francesca Hilton said that all Sunday the actress had been asking to be released from hospital.
“She wanted to be home. She was tired of it,” Ed Lozzi said.
Gabor was admitted to the hospital on July 17 after she broke her hip while reaching across her bed to answer a ringing telephone. The Hungarian blonde was given an artificial hip and released, only to be readmitted two days later for blood clot surgery.
Gabor — along with her sisters Eva and Magda — was a fixture on radio and television shows in the 1950s and 1960s. Her lengthy film career includes spots in a dozen films and television series, including John Huston’s 1952 Moulin Rouge, the 1958 film noir Touch of Evil by Orson Welles, and several animated films and TV series.
Zsa Zsa will perhaps be best remembered for her flamboyant lifestyle, legal troubles, nine marriages, and a propensity to call everyone “darling” in her distinctive European accent.
