Zsa Zsa Gabor to have surgery for broken hip

July 19, 2010


— Zsa Zsa Gabor will have surgery to replace the hip she broke when she fell out of bed in her Bel Air home, her publicist said Sunday.

John Blanchette said the 93-year-old actress will undergo the procedure today.

Gabor remained in a Los Angeles hospital Sunday with her husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, and other family members by her side.

She was watching TV in her Bel Air home when she reached to answer the phone and tumbled to the floor, Blanchette said.

“She was watching her favorite show, ‘Jeopardy,’ when the phone rang,” he said. “She reached over to pick it up and fell.”

He said several bones were broken, but said he didn’t know any other details of her injuries.

Von Anhalt called an ambulance, and Gabor was taken to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.

The hospital said early Sunday that family members were with her but did not disclose any other details.

The actress is partially paralyzed from a 2002 car accident, which required her to use a wheelchair. She also reportedly had a stroke in 2005.
