Publicist: Zsa Zsa Gabor 'unresponsive,' rushed to hospital

Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor was rushed to the hospital after her husband found her "unresponsive" Tuesday morning, her publicist told CNN.

Gabor, 93, was taken by ambulance from her Bel Air, California, home to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, where she had undergone hip replacement surgery earlier this summer, publicist John Blanchette said Tuesday.

She was hospitalized for several days earlier this month for complications relating to the surgery, he said.

Her husband, Prince Frederic Von Anhalt, was "very agitated" after calling for an ambulance Tuesday morning, he said.

Gabor had returned home from the hospital two weeks ago because she "wants to spend her final days at her home," Blanchette said at the time.

She spent three weeks in the hospital after breaking her hip in a fall from her bed on July 17.

She has been frail and "pretty much confined to a wheelchair" since a 2002 car accident, said Von Anhalt. The crash happened when the car in which she was riding with her hairdresser slammed into a light pole on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.

The glamorous Hungarian-born actress, the second of the three celebrated Gabor sisters, is most famous for her many marriages. Among her husbands was Oscar-winning actor George Sanders.

Her more prominent films include John Huston's 1952 Toulouse-Lautrec biopic, "Moulin Rouge;" "The Story of Three Loves" in 1953; "The Girl in the Kremlin" in 1957; and Orson Welles' 1958 classic, "Touch of Evil."

    To the poster who wrote "Green Acres." Zsa Zsa wasn't in that TV show, that was her sister, Eva Gabor.

    Actually, Zsa Zsa's younger sister, Eva, played the wife on Green Acres.

    Eva Gabor was in Green Acres, Zsa Zsa was in a variety of television series from Mr. Ed to Love Boat. For me, Zsa Zsa is best known for her performance in John Huston's Moulin Rouge in 1952. She played Jane Anvril in the production. Zsa Zsa is the prettiest of the Gabor sisters, but she and Ava were always mistaken for each other. Zsa Zsa of the two was the most colorful and eccentric and made plastic surgery en-vogue. All the best to you and your family, Zsa Zsa.

      I though Joan Rivers made plastic surgery en vogue ..... Heidi Montag of facelifts and Don Rickles of the red carpet!

      Zsa Zsa and Eva Gabor will always be remembered as icons of beauty and style. (kept their clothes on!)

    She may go soon, but too bad it will not be like my Grandma, peaceful and in her sleep... unlike everyone else in the car screaming.
