Eat, Drink and Remarry

Zsa Zsa Gabor's former Palm Springs home
It's been over three years since I've written about Zsa Zsa Gabor and her lovely sisters. Now in her 90s and in ill health, people speculate daily if she's dead yet. The once-beautiful Hungarian celebrity married 8 or 9 times, depending upon who you talk to, hence the title of this post--Eat, Drink and Remarry.

In 2011, one of Zsa Zsa's legs was amputated leaving her wheelchair bound. The problem in her leg started after hip-replacement surgery a few years earlier. Today she keeps on keeping on, a vastly different-looking Zsa Zsa than she was in her glamor days.

Be that as it may, Zsa Zsa's association with Palm Springs is long and deep. If you want to see where she lived--at 595 W. Chino Canyon Road--drive down South Palm Canyon for a couple of miles and look up the hill.

As recent as last month, Gabor's LA home made the news, the social butterfly's primary residence was turned over to her husband to sell. 

It wasn't Zsa Zsa who moved to Palm Springs first, it was her sister Jolie who owned a busy jewelry store on East Palm Canyon downtown. 

For those of you who are too young to know what I'm talking about, Zsa Zsa was the world's greatest socialite in the mid-twentieth century and star of a few B movies who ran around in expensive fur and shimmering diamonds saying "dahlink" a lot.

You can thank Iconic Palm Springs for the image of Zsa Zsa Gabor's Palm Springs home and rent Zsa Zsa's former home through them for as little as $160 a night.

Go 'head have a vacation with the Zsa Zsa spirit. Don't forget your fur and diamonds.
