The legendary Zsa Zsa Gabor was born 95 years ago today on Feb. 6, 1917.
Her ninth husband, Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt, is never one to miss an opportunity to throw an elaborate party -- even if the guest of honor is a bit under the weather. Last year, von Anhalt celebrated Zsa Zsa's 94th birthday just hours after she was released from the hospital due to infections in her lungs and her recently amputated leg.
von Anhalt released photos of the bedside celebration to the media so that people can see that she's not half-dead.
Zsa Zsa has had a slightly better year health wise, and von Anhalt is gearing up to celebrate again. He impersonated his wife in an invitation that was sent to undisclosed recipients, but included the online tabloid Rumorfix.com, which published a cut-off image of the invite.
Well it's time to come clean and tell the truth, I can't hide it anymore. For the first time I'll be celebrating my real birthday candle count, the invitation opens.
I'm hoping you can be a part of it, the invite continues. We'll celebrate MONDAY evening, Feb. 6, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
We'll have luscious buffet, live entertainment, a lake of champagne, and lots of good company.
According to Rumorfix, the invitation is signed, Zsa Zsa by Frederic.
In August, von Anhalt threw a 25th anniversary bash for his wife, who was confined to her bedroom for the majority of the evening. The Prince - as he is known - paid $68,000 for a Sunset Boulevard billboard announcing the couple's wedding anniversary and encouraged random passerby to please celebrate with us. Robert Blake, who was controversially acquitted of murdering his wife in 2005, and Sylvestor Stallone's younger brother, Frank, were among the guests.
Look, my wife is a 94-year-old, van Anhalt told KABC-TV. She should have everything she wants and she should have everything large. This big party is not for the guests, not for the media, not for me. This big party is for Zsa Zsa.
Gabor was given her last rites in 2010, after she experienced complications and an infection from an earlier hip replacement surgery. In January 2011, her leg was amputated after it became seriously infected. In 2005, she suffered a stroke, and was partially paralyzed in a 2002 car accident.
In April 2011, von Anhalt, who is believed to be in his late 60s, told CNN the couple was considering having a baby, using an egg donor, artificial insemination and a surrogate mother.
According to his Wikipedia page, von Anhalt's occupation is Socialite. His marriage to Zsa Zsa is her longest.
