LOS ANGELES — Celebrities reacted with sadness and grief on social media Sunday at news of the death of Zsa Zsa Gabor, the jet-setting Hungarian actress who made a career out of multiple marriages, conspicuous wealth and jaded wisdom about the glamorous life.
Her husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, said Gabor, who was 99, suffered numerous medical issues after breaking her right hip in July 2010, and died Sunday of a heart attack at her home.
As news of her death spread, stars and fans took to social media to mourn the original hall-of-mirrors celebrity, famous for being famous for being famous.
