Zsa Zsa Gabor to sue hairdresser over crash.
Zsa Zsa Gabor is filing a $65 million lawsuit against her hairdresser, who was driving her in Hollywood last week when he lost control and crashed the car into a lamppost.
The 85-year-old actress, who was not wearing a seat belt, broke her arm and needed stitches to her head, hands, arms and legs – Frederic von Anhalt – Gabor’s eighth husband – told The New York Post.
Initial reports said the former Miss Hungary was taken to hospital in a coma, but von Anhalt denied her condition had been that serious.
He said Gabor would stay in hospital this week and would undergo surgery for her broken arm.
The hairdresser, whose name has not been released, was not admitted to hospital. He had been wearing a seat belt.

Zsa Zsa Gabor Condition Still Serious
Zsa Zsa Gabor remained in serious condition today at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she is being treated for injuries suffered in a car crash in West Hollywood on Wednesday.
Hospital spokesperson Leslie Porras declined to release further details about the actress’s condition or comment on a possible release date.
The crash happened about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, November 27 at Sweetzer Avenue and Sunset Boulevard.
The 84-year-old Gabor was a passenger in a red Corvette that jumped a curb and crashed into a street pole.
The car struck the post here, and would you look at what fell off into my hand?
The day after the crash, Gabor’s daughter, Constance Francesca Hilton, said her mother suffered a broken arm in the accident. According to another report, Gabor suffered multiple fractures and required stitches to close cuts on her head, hands, arms and legs.
Hilton, daughter of the hotel magnate who was one of Gabor’s eight husbands, said her mother did not suffer a serious head injury. She acknowledged that Gabor was on a respirator for a time, and said that she did suffer some “trauma,” as is typical for any serious accident victim.
Hilton denied a police report that Gabor wasn’t wearing a seat belt when the Corvette struck the street pole.
The driver, reportedly Gabor’s hairstylist, was not seriously hurt in the crash. Boy, is she gonna be pissed.
This just in, January 2003, from Findadeath.com friend Dirk Foster:
You said “The crash happened about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday November 27 at
Sweetzer Avenue and Sunset Boulevard. The 84-year-old Gabor was a passenger
in a red Corvette that jumped a curb and crashed into a street pole.” But
the picture listed is not a corvette. That looks like a nissan/datsun or
toyota maybe. The car shown is a front wheel drive with 4 head lights. The
corvette only has 2 head lights.
Countless people have been sending this in:
Hmmm… that pic of the Corvette that Zsa Zsa supposedly crashed in sure looks like it has some Camaro Z28 wheels on it. I don’t think anybody in or around 90210 would be tacky enough to do that but who knows. Thought only people on the East side of Detroit did that. The front fender itself looks like a Camaro as well but I could be wrong.
I’d question the source of that picture.

Why no info about her death?
What ZaZa said about Joan River’s death was completely unnecessary and cold hearted. “She was mean to all of us, She deserved it”. WHAT?!!! Almost as bad as Bette Davis upon getting a phone call that Joan Crawford. I reporter called and told her the news and wanted a reaction. She said, “My mother told me never say anything bad about the dead, Only good. Joan Crawford is dead, Good”. Noooo. Bette no.
From what I’ve witnessed, Joan didn’t have a good rep in a lot of situations. Remember “Rabbit Test” a Joan produced/financed/directed (or some combination thereof) movie with Billy Crystal. Movie tanked with bad reviews & Joan went after the reviewers like they were attacking her child! I mean it was way out of proportion.
Heard director Jonathan Lynn say comedians are angry people in general. Think Joan fit that description to a “t”.
Shared a small business building lobby once with Joan, Melissa, Spike & Joan’s Doctor. Joan was “holding court”, geek Doctor was “lapping it up”, & Melissa was watching me watching Spike. Strange dynamic.
From what I know Zsa Zsa wasn’t stupid with money….. until the end of life. Like so many others, she invested almost all her cash with Madoff!!!
Just because someone dies, it doesn’t mean that they were all of a sudden a good person?? I’m sorry but if you’re an asshole when you’re alive and breathing then you’re still an asshole when you’re dead. So if you don’t want people to talk shit about you when you’re dead, don’t be an asshole.
What a weird page. Nothing about her death.
Correction, Zsa Zsa’s at 51.40.
In her pre cop slap fame saw Zsa Zsa in her Rolls on Sunset Blvd at Alpine Drive by the then notorious Shiek’s house in Beverly Hills. Immediate impression? Like Carol Matthau, an arrogant tarted up demimondaine. Know her history. High school girlfriend’s stepfather emigrated from Hungary to the US in the same group as Zsa Zsa….
Mother Jolie raised all her daughter’s to be courtesans…. In all fairness, late ’30s Hungary wasn’t a place to be trapped in. Mom married her off in her very early teens, to an Ambassador (Turkish?) to get them all out of the country. Zsa Zsa never looked back.
In her ’50s hayday, think Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Amanda Bynes, etc., in all their trashest extremes… If you were a man with power, fame and an extremely open wallet she was your gal. Can’t recall who, but it got so bad she was denounced in Congress (Senate?) for draining one Central American country by their dictator’s lavish jewelery expenditures on her behalf at Van Cleef & Arpels! Got sued in NY for ordering, & taking on credit, something like $100k in furniture without paying for it!
Her last husband, gay, gay, gay, “Prince” Freddy really fit her true nature. Trashy, sleazy, criminal – He was the male version of herself, only decades younger – Who could forget this little attention whore moment?
Seriously, whom else but Zsa Zsa’s husband could come up with being robbed & stripped by a bunch of Lezzies? Notice his “bound” hands? Ridiculous!
In all fairness, short of her precursor ideals – outrageous Edwardian tarts – she was was an original for her era.
If it works, following is GGACP Ron Friedman episode with Zsa Zsa’s true (foul mouthed – beyond insane) nature on display, among other things….. from someone who actually dealt with her –

Zsa Zsa’s at 54.20, but the entire episode has GREAT stories!
Anyone else recall greeting a complete business stranger at your front door as Zsa Zsa did?
Second paragraph corrections: First husband was a diplomat, but not an Ambassador. Burhan Aspaf Belge was the Press Director for the Foreign Ministry of Turkey in Ankara. Zsa Zsa married Belge in 1937. Given her “official” birth year of 1917, that would make her 19 or 20 years of age & not a young teenager as stated.
Trivia: Zsa Zsa birth name was Sari. After Hungary’s at the time most famous actress Sari Fedak.
Although beautiful machines, through decades of reading, Porche’s & Corvette’s don’t have a a great record of passengers surviving car crashes uninjured, or in quite a large percentage, at all – Remember in the ’70s Eric Clapton smashing his Ferrari into the back of a parked semi truck. Clapton walked away. Very much doubt the same outcome in a Porsche or Corvette.,,,
Update: page changed from 13 to 18. Hopefully this one will work. Great stories! https://www.gilbertpodcast.com/ron-friedman/
So the greedy Prince Freddy von Anhalt has announced he trundling Zsa Zsa’s ashes in a Louis Vuitton doggy carrier[!] for a global farewell tour before planting her in her native Hungary. And all along the way, he’ll milk it for all it’s worth in cold, hard cash.
Now he claims she’s never left his side since he tripped over her plug in the hospital, even saying she’s ridden along in the glove compartment of her old Rolls-Royce; this, despite records that emphatically state Zsa Zsa was boxed up and locked away in a gated crypt in the Columbarium at L.A.’s Westwood Memorial Park.
I wonder if he used a skeleton key to get the old girl out? Sorry… I couldn’t resist!
The world is certainly less a interesting place without Zsa Zsa.
The damaged car pictured isn’t a Corvette. Corvette body parts are constructed of fiberglass. Fiberglass cracks when involved in a accident. The damaged areas on the car pictured are folds and creases, and specific to what happens to steel when it becomes damaged.
