Hollywood legend Zsa Zsa Gabor dead at 99: Husband

Famed Hollywood icon Zsa Zsa Gabor has died at the age of 99 after suffering a heart attack, reports TMZ.

According to Variety, her publicist Ed Lozzi confirmed her passing at home in Los Angeles on December 18 and that she had been on life support for the past five years. Gabor also had a part later that year in We're Not Married.

If there had been no Zsa Zsa, there probably would be no Kim Kardashian.

But the actress was at least as famous for her conquests between the sheets as her triumphs on the silver screen. "Zsa Zsa Gabor was one tough cookie". She would have turned 100 in February.

She appeared in more than 40 movies and paraded her glamorous lifestyle on television, creating such memorable quotes as: "I am a marvelous housekeeper".

Gabor had been in ill health since being hospitalized after a fall in July 2010. Months later, her right leg was amputated above the knee to prevent the spread of gangrene. Gabor was of a time when "socialite" was not yet a term of derision.

Gabor took her first husband when she was 20 in 1937.

Eva died in 1995, and Magda died two years later.

Her mother escaped Hungary before the Nazi takeover during World War II.

She survived a series of health problems over the last decade, including an auto accident, a hip replacement and a stroke, and had been on life support the past five years.

She radiated the intriguing and marketable sense that at random moments she might say just about anything - including naughty allusions to her sex life back before that became routine celebrity currency. Memorably, she played Talleah.in the B-movie Queen of Outer Space (1958). Gabor had one daughter, Francesca, from her marriage to Conrad Hilton, though she died a year ago. Sample joke: "A man in love is incomplete until he has married - then he's finished". She once stated, "Men have always liked me and I have always liked men". The meeting led to her stage debut after Tauber invited her to sing in his operetta, Der singende Traum (The Singing Dream), but it wasn't until the 1950s that Gabor found fame as an actress.

Gabor served three days in jail after refusing to perform community service. A civil suit was settled out of court in 1991. In addition, Gabor laughed off the incident during a guest appearance in Will Smith's 1990s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Gabor appeared in a handful of films after 1980, including "The Naked Gun 2½: The Smell of Fear" and "The Beverly Hillbillies".
