Gabor will be remembered for her glamorous social life which is widely reported to have eclipsed her acting career. She died on Sunday 18 December, 2016, after suffering heart attack in her Bel Air mansion.
The former Miss Hungary (1936) who migrated to the United States of America in 1941, was rushed to a hospital in Los Angeles where she was pronounced dead.
“Men have always liked me and I have always liked men,” she once said during an interview.
“But I like a mannish man, a man who knows how to talk to and treat a woman – not just a man with muscles.”
Media reports confirm she was married to the owner and founder of the famous Hilton Hotel conglomerate; a great-grandfather to Paris Hilton.
The deceased was featured in “Moulin Rouge”, the popular 1952 movie. She also gave a voiceover for the blockbuster “Happily Ever After” (an animated movie released in 1990).
“I am a marvelous housekeeper: Every time I leave a man I keep his house,” she was also quoted as saying.
Gabor later confessed to having a sexual relationship with her stepson, Nicky.
Her ninth husband Frederic Von Anhalt was reported to have stayed by her side until she left this world.
Ed Lozzi, the celebrity’s rep, told PEOPLE on Sunday that her client had also suffered chronic dementia during the last five years.
“I am pleased that she is finally out of her misery,” he said in a statement.
“For the past five years, Zsa Zsa has suffered chronic dementia, locked away in her mansion laying in a hospital bed being fed through tubes in her naval, not able to speak, see, write or hear. Nor knowing who she was or how famous she was.”
How to Catch a Man, How to Keep a Man, How to Get Rid of a Man, was one of the books Zsa Zsa authored.
In the 1970 piece, she revealed that her ex-husband, Conrad Hilton, was able to purchase the popular Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City through her advice.
“I’m a compulsive buyer,” she wrote. “Anything beautiful I see I want.
“That’s how we got the Waldorf Astoria. I told Conrad Hilton, ‘I want the Waldorf,’ and he bought it.
“The only problem was I divorced him before the escrow was finished.’ “
Zsa Zsa was reported to have called everyone she meets a “darling” or “dahlink” as she pronounced it. That became a part of her many signatures.
“I call everyone ‘dahlink’ because I can’t remember their names,” the respectable socialite said.
