The late Zsa Zsa Gabor would love it that people are still in awe of her glam life.

Gabor, who died in December 2016 at 99, was known for being famous for being famous decades before today’s era of people gaining celebrity by way of reality shows or social media. Gabor acted in movies such as 1952’s Moulin Rouge, yet she was better known for her personal life: marrying nine times (once more than Elizabeth Taylor) and being arrested for slapping a Beverly Hills police officer in 1989 and the high-profile trial that followed. She called everyone “dahling” and offered juicy quotes to the press, such as, “I never hated a man enough to give him his diamonds back.” Gabor was Taylor, Kim Kardashian, and Mariah Carey all rolled into one, with some Paris Hilton thrown in. (Coincidentally, Gabor was married to Hilton’s great-grandfather Conrad Hilton in the ’40s, and Paris was one of the first celebrities to comment on Gabor’s death.)

At the time of Gabor’s death, she was married to Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt, whom she wed in 1986. He has surfaced in the tabloids over the years due to various scandals and the fact that he spoke on his wife’s behalf for the final years of her life, as she struggled with health issues. Von Anhalt has remained in the L.A. home he shared with Gabor for decades, and he watched Thursday as the public browsed pieces that belonged to his late wife before they’re auctioned off on Saturday, April 14.
