This Circus is Simply TAWDRY, Dahlink!!

There's a movie in this. Maybe 15 movies. Who is writing the screenplay!? 94 year old Zsa Zsa Gabor was rushed to the hospital after losing consciousness and bleeding from a tube in her stomach. Odds are Zsa Zsa will soon outrace Rev Billy Graham at the top of the dead pool, and she only has one leg!
Nobody is gonna detain this bitch either, remember what happened last time she got caught speeding?

2011 may be Zsa Zsa's most notorious year to date. The 94 year old had one of her legs amputated in January and suffered a stroke that left her partially paralyzed. In August, her 9th husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, took out a billboard in LA, announcing a party for their anniversary.

This caused huge controversy, especially from Gabor's daughter Francesca Hilton who is refused visitation rights to her mother and claims Von Anahlt is creating a "circus atmosphere" around her mother's health. No, you don't say! And how about that party? Everyone was there except Zsa Zsa herself, who reportedly watched it on a screen from her bedroom. TMZ reports: let her eat cake! And despite rumors that Zsa Zsa was not there and actually dead, The Prince said she "had a great time!"

I recently read up on Zsa Zsa and her sisters Eva and Magda - the "Budapest Bombshells" - in fanbook Gaborabilia (thanks Richard!) and they all lead spectacular and fascinating lives. Glamor holds nothing for me, but there is something remarkable in the ambition, personality, drive and determination that made and keeps Zsa Zsa famous.  As she once put it, "If I only had a little humility - I'd be perfect!"

Zsa Zsa (not born Zsa Zsa) is the original "famous for being famous" celebrity self-creation - and it seems her only real competition these days is her husband. Prince (not born a prince) Frederic has more circus acts up his sleeve than a billboard and party for an old woman out of her wits. This year, he declared Zsa Zsa's body will be preserved with a process called plastination ("my wife always dreamt that her beauty would be immortal"), while also telling CNN his plans to find a surrogate to make 94 year old Zsa Zsa a new mama so she can "once again enjoy the wonders of motherhood."

AND, we're not finished yet, Prince Frederic announced his plans to run for Mayor of Los Angeles! The man has clearly taken pages from Zsa Zsa's publicity-hungry book. Are they not made for each other? They should be awarded most quintessential Hollywood couple. A paralytic Zsa Zsa could accept the award live (or otherwise) from her bedroom, suckling her newborn child.

It all seems a most befitting end to the Queen of Outer Space.
