It's been the scene of opulent parties and revelry.
But Zsa Zsa Gabor's starry life at her Bel Air mansion has now finally come to an end.
As the 93-year-old actress' health worsens, her husband has been forced to sell the couple's palatial mansion in order to pay for her medical fees.
Zsa Zsa's ninth husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt told the media that he made the decision on Saturday, when his wife returned home from the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center after having about three-fourths of her leg amputated.
It was the 67-year-old socialite that gave the go-ahead for his wife's life-saving operation.
Doctors treating Gabor at the Los Angeles hospital decided on the procedure after an MRI revealed gangrene in her leg had spread into the bone.
Von Anhalt told the Los Angeles Times that his wife's mounting medical bills and bad debt are too much to deal with, and they need to sell the house so he can continue to look after her.

“I think he wants to sell the house now while she’s still alive to have her cash in hand when she goes.”
That & probably mounting debt he’s racked up and needs to pay off.
The Death Panels, that the Left just promised to eliminate a couple weeks ago even though they denied there was any such talk in the Obamacare Bill, would say, 93? Why did she get to live so long.
Dont they let kids read Animal Farm in school anymore?
Call me a skeptic, but I'd bet big bucks that he wants the multi-million dollar home sold while she's alive, because perhaps the property is willed to a child or someone other than 'Prince'.
Question to all freepers: Let’s say your 93 years old mother is in the hospital. A doctor tells you she needs brain surgery. He’s found water on the brain and it’s very treatable. He tells you he’s done it before, even on his own mother...What do you say? Be honest.
Under 0bamaCare, Zsa Zsa would’ve been dead a long time ago, unless, of course she were a big political donor (note how SEIU thug chieftains got waivers).
Also, the fact the couple is selling the house tells me the med bills are being paid in cash.
Indeed. But what about one time sale of primary residence? Am I hallucinating?
"I'll ask my mother."
Without hesitation, I say "Yes, absolutely."
You are referring, of course, to Zsa Zsa.
I think this one will get blamed on Ronald Reagan...
...when his wife returned home from the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center after having about three-fourths of her leg amputated.
Yes, let's do it to your mother again.
Indeed. This story, from last August, values the mansion at only $14m and claims she lost $10m to Bernie Madoff.
Under the Cuban health care model, she’d have been raped, shot in the back of the head and her estate would have been seized.
Not being a “health care professional” and assuming “water on the brain” is not a symptom of something else bad, if she was reasonably healthy before, I’d say “Yes”.
I’ll bet there’s more to this story... parts of it don’t ring true.
It’s my understanding that only the first half-million “or so” is tax-free.
And that would have been done fifty years ago.
Bingo. You win the cupie doll.
