Gabor has passed away

Zsa Zsa Gabor is dead at age 99. Her publicist Ed Lozzi confirmed the actress died Sunday. Gabor had been on life support for the past five years, but died of a heart attack. The Hungarian-born actress and socialite helped to create a celebrity-crazed society. With a few acting credits under her belt, Gabor is probably best known for playing herself. Her signature pet name for everyone was “darling,” but due to such a thick accent, it came out as dah-link.

Gabor once said she was bad at remembering names, hence dubbing everyone with the nickname.

Gabor made a career out of joking about her many marriages, love for diamonds and other luxurious indulgences. Aside from being famous for “just being,” Gabor got into a rather famous scrap with the law for her antics. In 1989, she had to appear in court for slapping a Beverly Hills police officer. But as her health deteriorated over the years, the public saw less of the socialite.

A 2002 car accident left Gabor in a wheelchair. She suffered a massive stroke in 2005, and in 2010, Gabor broke her hip from a fall. In 2011, she also had a leg amputated to prevent the spread of gangrene.

Born in Budapest to wealthy parents, Zsa Zsa Gabor was all about beauty and glamor. To her, life without diamonds and furs was not much of a life, especially if you lived in Hollywood. Using her old-school gold digging knowledge, Gabor authored the book “How to Catch a Man” which was deemed to be a guide for gold diggers.
