Zsa Zsa Gabor hospitalized after news of Elizabeth Taylor's death
The Los Angeles Times has reported Zsa Zsa Gabor was briefly hospitalized for elevated blood pressure after the 93-year-old actress learned of the death of her longtime friend Elizabeth Taylor, her husband said Thursday.
Prince Frederic von Anhalt said his wife was taken Wednesday to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center for high blood pressure that shot up when she saw pictures of Taylor on the news.
"She was very upset when she saw her picture on telelvision -- and it was all over television," von Anhalt said. "Over the years, famous people always die in threes and she said, 'Well, it's me now.'"
Gabor, who was back home Thursday, has endured health problems and repeated hospitalizations that included treatement for a lung infection and amputation of her right leg.
Last month, Von Anhalt also was briefly hospitalized for stress-related problems.
