Say goodbye to Zsa Zsa Gabor

In memory of Zsa Zsa Gabor, who died this week at the grand old age of 99. Looking back at a life of love, luxury, laughter and husbands!

Born Sari Gabor in Budapest in 1917, Zsa Zsa Gabor as she became known, grew up in relative prosperity, the second of three daughters of Vilmos and Jolie Gabor. Raised for stardom, the sisters attended private schools and were chauffeured to acting, dancing, music and fencing classes.

Her career, which began with the title Miss Hungary in 1936, was still going strong in the 1990s, outlasting those of her sisters, Eva and Magda, celebrities in their own right. She was the last surviving Gabor sister.

Married at least eight times, calling everyone “Dahlink,” flaunting a diamonds-and-furs lifestyle and abetted by gossip columnists and tabloid headline writers, Zsa Zsa Gabor played the coifed platinum femme fatale in plunging necklines in dozens of film and television roles, many of them cameos as herself.

It is documented that Gabor once said "A girl must marry for love, and keep on marrying until she finds it," ! 

Her husbands included a Turkish diplomat, the hotel heir Conrad Hilton and the cator George Sanders amongst others. Another of her more well known quotes is "I never hated a man enough to give him his diamonds back". A real character with beauty, charm, a real sense of fun and enough sassiness to keep the husbands saying "yes"

 Zsa Zsa's love of life and luxury never left her and I think it can be said that despite numerous illnesses and accidents she lived life to the full and would have been content. A lesson for us all, live life to the full, furs, pearls and all X
