Zsa Zsa Gabor asks for last rites from priest
Hollywood diva Zsa Zsa Gabor, 93, has asked for last rites from a priest from her hospital sick bed in Los Angeles, her spokesman John Blanchette told the German Press Agency dpa Sunday.
The ailing actress and former Miss Hungary however was still hoping to be released from hospital so she can go home, Blanchette said. Asked if he feared the worst, Blanchette only said that she had a fabulous life.
Gabor had just been released from hospital on Thursday after hip replacement surgery for her July 18 fall, but was re-admitted on Friday complaining of pain and bleeding. She had another round of surgery on Friday to remove two blood clots.
Gabor's husband, Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, 67, described to dpa her condition as stable Saturday morning. They celebrated their 24th wedding anniversary on Saturday in hospital.
Gabor suffered injuries when she fell from her bed while answering the phone in July. Since a stroke in 2005, Gabor has been mostly confined to a wheelchair or her bed.
Gabor is best remembered for acting in the 1950s classics such as Lili and Touch of Evil, and for her several high-profile husbands including hotel magnate Conrad Hilton and Oscar-winning actor George Sanders.
