Zsa Zsa Gabor receives last rites in hospital

Monday August 16, 2010

Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor has received the last rites from a priest in a Los Angeles hospital after surgery to remove two blood clots.

Her publicist has said that the 93-year-old "is not doing very well."

"She's in a serious condition," he said.

Zsa Zsa, whose ninth husband Frederic von Anhalt - pictured in 1995 - is by her side, is said to be conscious but only able to talk a little.

She spent several hours in surgery on Saturday for the removal of the clots, one of which was located very close to her heart.

The former beauty queen had only just returned home from hospital following a hip replacement operation but was readmitted two days later.

In recent years, Zsa Zsa's health has been declining. She was left partially paralysed after a car accident in 2002 and suffered a stroke three years later.
