Zsa Zsa Gabor, who died Sunday at the age of 99, was arguably more famous for her many marriages and divorces than she was for her acting career. The wife of eight husbands (well, nine if you count the union that lasted only one day before it was annulled), Gabor unapologetically loved, lost and left throughout her lavish life.
“Every girl should be married at least once in her life. It’s a must,” Gabor wrote in her 1970 book, “How to Catch a Man, How to Keep a Man, How to Get Rid of a Man.”
Gabor would know. In her lifetime, she wed a Turkish diplomat, a hotelier, an English actor, a Mexican actor, a Beverly Hills investor, a Texas socialite, an inventor, a divorce lawyer and even the adopted son of German royalty, who finally gave Gabor the one title she seemed destined to have: princess.
The star was adored by fans for her witty one-liners and her openness to dish on her wild romances, which apparently included the likes of Sean Connery and Richard Burton. When asked how many husbands she had, Gabor was quoted in the 1975 anthology, “I Wish I’d Said That” by Kenneth Edwards as responding with, “You mean apart from my own?”
