Hollywood Legend Zsa Zsa Gabor Dies at 99
Zsa Zsa Gabor, whose 60-year career of playing herself helped paved the way for today’s celebrity-obsessed culture, has died. She was 99.

Publicist Ed Lozzi confirmed to Variety that Gabor died Sunday in her Bel Air mansion. She had been on life support for the last five years, and according to TMZ, which first reported the news, she died of a heart attack.

While Gabor had multiple acting credits, her greatest performance was playing herself: She was famous for her accented English (calling everyone “darling,” which came out “dah-link”), eccentric name, offscreen antics (including a 1989 incident in which she slapped a Beverly Hills cop) and one-liners about her jewels, nine marriages and ex-husbands. Despite her glamorous image, her life, especially in later years, was marred by battles between her much-younger husband Frederic Prinz von Anhalt and her daughter.

The actress was frequently in the news in recent years as her health deteriorated. She broke her hip in July 2010 in a fall in her Bel-Air home after a 2002 car accident had left her wheelchair-bound and a massive stroke further hobbled her in 2005. Her leg was later amputated above the knee. Yet Gabor stubbornly clung to life.

Zsa Zsa Gabor, the Hungarian beauty who some called the OG Kim Kardashian, is dead just shy of 100 years old ... TMZ has learned.
We've learned Gabor died Sunday after suffering a heart attack. She was rushed to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Her husband Frederic Prinz Von Anhalt held birthday parties for Gabor the last few years, but she was so sick visitors were not allowed in her bedroom.
Zsa Zsa and her younger sister Eva were socialites in Beverly Hills for decades. Zsa Zsa had nearly 80 tv and film acting credits, but most often she played herself. She was married to Conrad Hilton, Paris's grandfather, from 1942-1947.

I have heard her name, but just didn't know exactly who she was or what she did. RIP.

^Amazing family/woman and she had quite the life.  If you have nothing else to do, it's kind of fun to look at a video bio or wiki her and her sister(s).

RIP  -  free from pain now.  Must have been a tough time in recent years, if she was aware of what was going on.  Used to love seeing her, and her accent was brilliant, loved it.  Especially "dah-link", it was the way she said it.  Another lost to the next life this year, been quite a few.  Concolences to her family.
