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."

      Hey Tea Bagger, I know a lot of folks here with HPD that would have let her slap them. Anyway, I think you might just be a phony Texan because you absolutely have no sense.

    This is to Buck, TeaParty and Paris. I hope when your time is up......and one day it will be.....just like all of us.....but my wish is for people with no feelings, heart or compassion pays you all the same compliments you have paid Zsa Zsa Gabor. She has more class and dignity than all of you put together. Of course, you don't care about that because to each of you she is a nobody. What happened to you all that makes you so unfeeling? I actually feel sorrier for you three than I do for Ms Gabor's family. They know she was classy. Your families know you all are dumb! Hey, best of luck to your luckless and unfeeling lives! You're gonna need more than luck. But I believe that's all you can count on. Too late for anything else. WOW! What a trio!!! God bless your families!

      Bubba – I think that tea party is just trying to be stupid.

      What is sad – is that people with his intelligence level are why other people can't stand the thought of the "tea party".

      The original tea party members (two hundred plus years ago) are rolling over in their graves with the idiocy of this new group.

      Maybe he should have enlisted in that farce of a war that "W" got us into – while he LET the Bin Laden family leave the country the day after the World Trade Center bombing – BECAUSE they gave him $10 million previously....hmmmm–we can't find a 6 foot 5 muslim man on dialysis three times a week – really?


      But I digress, this site was about Ms. GABOR – NOT this twit's nonsense.

    In her day she and her sisters were glamorous and Zsa Zsa was a good actress and lived a full and remarkable life. Eva died too young and Zsa Zsa was a savvy business woman who ended up owning part of The Beverly Hilton hotel and other properties. I wish her a peaceful journey home.

    TeePee – my 'buddies' aren't in how business and I don't need to look up to them – but then I am not the one with uncontrollable need to behave like a moron every time I hit the key board. I thought you people were Christians? You certainly aren't showing any Christian behavior that I grew up with. One word for that – Hypocrite. Just continue on with your bashing of a sick 93 year old woman that you don't even know. Again – Have you ever considered getting a life that isn't based on gravitating to the lowest common denominator?

    Does anyone else find it strange that people ask whether or not you ever get out when someone says they've never heard of her. I'm 25, and I've never heard of her. Maybe it's because I do get out often and don't waste my time watching old "classic" movies.

      I'm two years younger than you, and I know she is.

      And classic films are NOT a waste of time. I think they're better than the movies of today.
