Zsa Zsa Gabor, Often-Married Celebrity ‘Dahling,’ Dies at 99

  • One of three Hungarian sisters who sought fame in Hollywood
  • Insisted she always married for love - but kept the houses

Zsa Zsa Gabor, the bejeweled actress and celebrity hostess who greeted everyone as “Dahling” and appeared in movies, on Broadway and in nine marriages, has died at 99, less than two months short of her 100th birthday.

Gabor died around 1pm Sunday at her Bel Air mansion in Los Angeles, said Edward Lozzi, her friend and former publicist. The cause of death was heart failure following an extended decline, he said. In 2011, part of the actress’s right leg was amputated to halt the spread of infection, one of a number of health conditions she experienced.
