Quote of the month - July 2010

Zsa Zsa Gabor was famously married 9 times, so I will leave it up to you to decide upon her authority to make the following quote.... it is a quote I totally love.....something I feel is very insightful, and very true !

"Men fall in love with their eyes, women fall in love with their ears"

Zsa Zsa Gabor was an actress with an amazing body of work in both film, television and the theater, possessive of the wonderful ability to have a laugh at herself - shown when she cameoed in the Naked Gun comedy's, 'taking the mickey' out of herself over an incident where she slapped a police officer.

Unfortunatly she is recognised as much for her marriages as she is for her acting, the details of which appear below (from Wikipedia)

Gabor has been married nine times. She was divorced seven times, and one marriage was annulled. Her husbands, in chronological order, are:

Burhan Asaf Belge (1937–1941) (divorced)

Conrad Hilton (April 10, 1942–1947) (divorced)

George Sanders (April 2, 1949 – April 2, 1954) (divorced)

Herbert Hutner (November 5, 1962 – March 3, 1966) (divorced)

Joshua S. Cosden, Jr. (March 9, 1966 – October 18, 1967) (divorced)

Jack Ryan (January 21, 1975 – August 24, 1976) (divorced)

Michael O'Hara (August 27, 1976–1983) (divorced)

Felipe de Alba (April 13, 1983 – April 14, 1983) (annulled)

Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt (August 14, 1986 to present)

Due to her high number of divorces, she once claimed that she was a good housekeeper because every time she divorced, she kept the house.

In 1974, she purchased a two-story Bel Air home from Elvis Presley. It was built by Howard Hughes and featured an eccentric-looking French roof.

Zsa Zsa was the only Gabor sister to bear a child, Francesca Hilton, (born March 10, 1947). According to Gabor's 1991 autobiography One Lifetime Is Not Enough, her pregnancy resulted from rape by then-husband Conrad Hilton.

In 2005, Gabor accused her daughter Francesca of larceny and fraud, alleging that she had forged her signature to get a $2 million loan on her mother's Bel Air house, and filed a lawsuit against Francesca in a California court. However the Santa Monica Superior Court threw out the case due to Zsa Zsa Gabor's refusal to appear in court or to sign an affidavit that she indeed was a co-plaintiff on the original law suit filed by Fredrick von Anhalt.
