The First Gabor Sister


The first thing I will tell you about this Miss Hungary of 1936, is her name is Sari Gabor, but everyone calls her Zsa Zsa.

Zsa Zsa, her sister Magda and her actress sister Eva (oh, I adore Eva in "Green Acres") are from Budapest, Hungary and besides Holly Golightly and Jeannie Little she's one of the most famous women to use the world "dahling" when addressing people.

Zsa Zsa is most famous for her many fantastic quotes and also her many marriages. I think she's had nine husbands. But so many great quotes. Amongst her noteworthy quotes are:

"I have never hated a man enough to give his diamonds back."
"A girl must marry for love, and keep on marrying until she finds it."
"To a smart girl men are no problem - they're the answer."
"I never remember anybody's name. How do you think the "dahling" thing got started?"
"Husbands are like fires. They go out if unattended."
"I am a marvelous housekeeper. Every time I leave a man I keep his house."

and my favourite Zsa Zsa quote :
"Being jealous of a beautiful woman is not going to make you more beautiful."

I love that in 1989 she was arrested for slapping a police officer in Beverly Hills. She went to jail for it. The beautiful thing about it is she's so able to poke fun at herself, making it so hard not to like her. I know it was some sort of traffic violation (unfortunately, us Bombshells aren't famous for our impeccable driving) but I wonder what the policeman said to her to warrant that slap.

Something else I know about her is that, amongst her other husbands, she married and divorced Conrad Hitlon, so that makes her Paris Hilton's ex-grandmother. I also think she lives with her current husband in a house previously owned by the late Elvis Presley in Bel Air. Another great thing about Zsa Zsa Gabor is that nobody knows the exact date of her birth.
