Although suffering from ill health that didn’t stop Zsa Zsa Gabor from valiantly celebrating her 25th wedding anniversary.
Although perhaps someone should have told her husband to be a little more subtle about their celebrations.
Prince Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, 68, invited a host of media and Hollywood stars to their home where he wheeled out his 94-year-old wife for some celebratory photos and then proceeded to party the night away.
He also told CNN that after 25 years of mariage he has started the process of donor matching and blood work so he could turn Zsa Zsa into Ma Ma.
That’s right, the esteemed Prince Frederic von Anhalt is planning to arrange for an egg donor, surrogate mother, and artificial insemination to allow Zsa Zsa to once again enjoy the wonder of motherhood.
Why in the world would he do this? He said that he wants someone to be able to carry on the Gabor name. Zsa Zsa’s only child is daughter Francesca Hilton (daughter of hotel magnate Conrad Hilton, Zsa Zsa’s second husband). Hilton is, not surprisingly, shocked by the whole thing.
And by this point, it would take a great deal to shock her, based on what Prince von Anhalt has been doing with Zsa Zsa. Despite the fact that Zsa Zsa has been hospitalized dozens of times in the last year or so, including a leg amputation, coma, hip replacement, a stroke, and much more, the prince provided photographs of her in her hospital bed to the media. Then he arranged for more pictures of her, sipping champagne for his recent birthday. Von Anhalt topped that off by spending almost $70,000 for a billboard on Sunset Boulevard to commemorate their 25-year anniversary. He then announced a grand party for that anniversary, and invited many of the Hollywood elite. A few celebrities did appear for the party last night, along with invited members of the media. The festivities lasted well into the night, and Zsa Zsa posed for pictures from her bed.
This story bothers me for so many reasons. Is Zsa Zsa ok with this and not understanding she is not young and beautiful anymore. Not understanding that it is no longer ok to be on display. Or is her husband taking advantage of her?
It made me scroll through her photos. They are right, beauty does not last. It fades. But you are left with the people who love you. Is this love that they are displaying?
