LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Screen siren Zsa Zsa Gabor turned 95 years old Monday, in spite of the health scares she suffered over the past year.
Gabor’s leg was amputated last year, after previously breaking her hip and suffering a blood clot. She was rushed to the hospital several times, including the day after her friend and one-time neighbor Elizabeth Taylor died.
She was last rushed to the hospital for internal bleeding and an infection in November.
Since then, she seems to have rallied and has invited friends and the media to a birthday party Monday at the estate she shares with her husband, Frederic Prinz von Anhalt.
“Over the years I may have overlooked a year or two (or 20), but not this year,” Gabor’s cheeky invitation read. “I will no longer be ageless, it will be my…um…er, 95th birthday. (Boy that was tough)”
The numbers 95 were in much smaller type than the rest of Gabor’s note.
Gabor’s spokesman says that they’ve received RSVP’s from Nancy Reagan, Quincy Jones, Chubby Checker, Kirk Kerkorian and many other celebrities.
