Zsa Zsa Gabor hospitalized after Liz Taylor death

[ AD HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THIS STORY ]

LOS ANGELES >> Zsa Zsa Gabor’s publicist says the shock of Elizabeth Taylor’s death made Gabor fear she was next and sent her to the hospital with high blood pressure.

John Blanchette says the 94-year-old celebrity was watching the news Wednesday morning at her Los Angeles home when she learned her friend and one-time neighbor had died. Blanchette says Gabor was inconsolable and commented: "Oh, Jane Russell and Liz Taylor — I’m next."

That’s a reference to the common myth that celebrity deaths come in threes.

Blanchette says Gabor’s blood pressure soared and she was taken to the hospital until Wednesday evening.

Gabor has been in ill health and her right leg was partially amputated in January.

But Blanchette calls her a fighter and adds: "She’s not going to be the third."
