Zsa Zsa Gabor has an infection that will delay her release from Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center indefinitely.
Popeater reports John Blanchette, publicist for the Hollywood icon, announced early Tuesday, August 10, that infection has changed physician’s plans, who were set to release the 93-year old actress yesterday, August, 9.
This news comes after it was announced on August 7 that the aged glamor girl had gone into shock just hours before she was due for release last Saturday.
Since then, friends and fans from all over the world have been waiting to hear news that Gabor will finally leave the hospital as re-scheduled on Monday — yet Monday came and went with no word of her release.
Gabor’s husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt has said he will give up his gubernatorial campaign to care for his wife, telling media, “Nearly a quarter-century ago I promised for better or worse, and my wife’s worst time is now, and I will do everything to comfort her. She will have my physical support, love and understanding as long as I live.”
Despite his plans to care for her in their home, hoping the familiar surrounding with make her feel better, right now there is little anyone can do outside of hospital staff.
Blanchette has told fans, however, that Gabor is “a fighter…doing the best she can.”
The Moulin Rouge actress has been hospitalized since July 17, when a fall in her home caused the celebrity icon to fall and break her hip while attempting to answer the phone in her Bel Air home.
Since her emergency hip replacement surgery, her recovery has been a series of rallies and downturns. Even her publicist told media, “It’s just one thing after another.
Though her beauty brought her immediate attention as a young performer, it was her unique sense of charm, wit, and demanding self-confidence that made her an international star.
Though Gabor and Marilyn Monroe were both well-known bombshells of the 1950’s, the characters they played were really quite different. While Monroe was often cast in roles that portrayed innocent, naive women of low social standing — the Hungarian beauty’s characters were shrewd, sophisticated, and socially connected.
