Zsa Zsa Gabor (1917-2016) pioneered the modern version of celebrity: she was famous for being famous.
Gabor became a frequent guest on television talk shows as early as the 1950s, charming audiences with her fractured English and risque jokes about her reputation as an oft-married seductress fond of men and money.
Her nine marriages and reputation for shaving years off her age made her a pop-culture punch line. Bob Hope could joke: “You can calculate Zsa Zsa Gabor’s age by the rings on her fingers”, and it only cemented her fame.
She had penchant for public escapades including a 1989 assault conviction for slapping a Beverly Hills police officer. When reporters asked if she was prepared for a long trial, she cooed: “I have enough outfits to last a year”.
Zsa Zsa left this world in December 2016. She was 99-years-old when she checked-out for good.
