Zsa Zsa Gabor was rushed to the hospital after news of Elizabeth Taylor’s death caused her blood pressure to soar.
Gabor’s publicist John Blanchette says she heard of Taylor’s death on the news Wednesday morning and was inconsolable. Taylor and Gabor were friends and neighbors at one-time.
Blanchette says Gabor’s reaction to the news was, “Oh, Jane Russell and Liz Taylor — I’m next,” referring to the common myth that deaths come in threes.
Gabor’s been in and out of hospitals recently with poor health. Her right leg was partially amputated in January.
Despite Gabor’s battle with illnesses, Blanchette calls her a fighter and adds, “She’s not going to be the third.”
