Born Sari Gabor in Budapest in 1917, Ms. Gabor was the second of three daughters and emigrated to the United States with her mother and her sisters emigrated. This is according to New York Times.
Zsa Zsa Gabor who won the the title of Miss Hungary in 1936, also had a bit of success in her acting career, often portraying the role of a femme fatale in dozens of film and television roles, many of them cameos as herself.
However, critics have noted that her best roles were early in her career, in “Moulin Rouge” (1952) and “Lili” (1953). She also appeared as a nightclub manager in Orson Welles’s 1958 classic “Touch of Evil”
Her long list of husbands include; a Turkish diplomat, an oil magnate, the hotel heir Conrad Hilton, the actor George Sanders, an industrialist, a toy designer, a divorce lawyer and her last husband; Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt, whom she married in 1986.
She was also guilty of bigamy as a result of marriage to a Mexican actor. The union however only lasted only a day and was annulled.
In addition to her TV appearances, Zsa Zsa Gabor operated a mail-order cosmetics company and once offered $1 million to anyone who could prove she had had a face-lift. She has also published several books, like “Zsa Zsa Gabor: My Story” (1960), “Zsa Zsa’s Complete Guide to Men” (1969).
Zsa Zsa Gabor suffered from ill health for a while before her passing. She was hospitalized for a month in 2002 after a car driven by her hairdresser struck a utility pole in West Hollywood. She also suffered a stroke in 2005 and had surgery for a blocked carotid artery.
