Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband, Frederic Von Anhalt, hospitalized

Zsa Zsa Gabor husband Prince Frederic Von Anhalt Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband was hospitalized after collapsing in an elevator at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, where the actress remained in critical condition, the couple's publicist said Wednesday. 

Prince Frederic Von Anhalt, 67, collapsed and was admitted Tuesday, the same day his wife was rushed to the hospital for treatment of a lung infection. He spent the next day resting, according to rep John Blanchette.

The onetime California gubernatorial candidate was also hospitalized in December after he glued one of his eyes shut — he'd mistaken nail glue for eye drops.

Meanwhile, after Von Anhalt announced in January that he was planning to put the mansion where he and Gabor reside on the market for $28 million, the actress' daughter Constance "Francesca" Hilton was reportedly preparing to fight that plan, on the grounds that he signed a prenup and has no rights in the matter. 

"Francesca has had a long and terrible relationship with her stepfather," a family insider told PopEater on Wednesday, "and is terrified that as her mother lies back in a hospital bed he will convince her to sign something that would leave her with nothing."

Gabor, who recently had her right leg amputated above the knee, broke her left hip in a fall in July and has been struggling since then to recuperate.

Zsa Zsa's 94th birthday falls on Super Bowl Sunday.
