On February 6, 1917, Sari Gabor, better known as Zsa Zsa, was born in Budapest, Hungary. She was crowned Miss Hungary 1936. Zsa Zsa came to the United States with her two sisters, Eva and Magda, in search of movie stardom. However, rather than seek out acting jobs, she sought out wealth and jewels. Zsa Zsa's theory was that "any publicity is GOOD publicity". Married 9 times, her only daughter, Francesca Hilton, was from her marriage to hotel magnate, Conrad Hilton.
Officially known as an actress, she is more famous as an "old school celebrity sex symbol". Zsa Zsa's most famous "act" was from her arrest for slapping a police officer while being stopped for a traffic violation. She was found guilty, spent 3 days in jail, and had to pay over $13,000 in court costs. Aunt to Paris Hilton, Zsa Zsa is now 93 years old and suffering from complications of a stroke that she had in 2007.
In 2009, lawyers found that she may have lost as much as 10 million dollars with swindler Bernard Madoff thru third party investments.
Zsa Zsa's is noted for her many quotes which include:
"I am a marvelous house keeper. Every time I leave a man I keep his house".
"Conrad Hilton was very generous to me in the divorce settlement. He gave me 5,000 Gideon Bibles".
"Husbands are like fires. They go out when unattended".
