Zsa Zsa Gabor hit with pneumonia, new rumor about husband's baby plan

Zsa Zsa Gabor was hospitalized with pneumoniaZsa Zsa Gabor was hospitalized this week for treatment of pneumonia, according to her rep.

The decision to take the 94-year-old to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center by ambulance Wednesday afternoon was made by her doctor after a regular exam at her home. A similar regular exam in March resulted in Gabor being hospitalized for blood-flow problems in her left leg.

"She's having trouble breathing," publicist John Blanchette told CNN. "They're trying to save her life right now, getting the fluids off her lungs."

Gabor, 94, has struggled with health problems for years, most recently experiencing multiple complications after a July 2010 fall in which she broke her left hip and other bones. The actress' right leg was amputated above the knee in January to prevent the spread of gangrene.

While hospitalized in March, she declined a recommendation to have her left leg amputated, opting instead to return home.

In the meantime, Gabor's husband, Prince Frederick Von Anhalt, was up to his usual quiet life. A lunch Monday with Pamela Bach, David Hasselhoff's ex-wife, resulted in midweek reports that Bach had offered to act as a surrogate or egg donor or both, if Von Anhalt were to ask. In April, the 67-year-old publicly floated the idea of finally having a baby with his bedridden wife, using artificial insemination and a surrogate.

Bach's reps countered, telling TMZ, "We refuse to acknowledge the delusional ramblings of this man who clearly has done nothing more than plant a fictional tale in a desperate attempt for attention. Our sympathy to Ms. Gabor who is an innocent victim of his shenanigans."

Even if Bach had offered, a reproductive specialist already explained to CNN last month why the "prince" might not be able to get what he wants: Ethical issues including age, health and consent would scare away any credible fertility clinic, according to Dr. Dan Shapiro of Reproductive Biology Associates of Atlanta.

"This is not a reasonable request," Shapiro told CNN. "This is not a childless family seeking to family-build."

Gabor's daughter Constance Francesca Hilton seemed to agree after hearing Von Anhalt's plan in April, telling CNN, "That's just weird."

This "prince" should be committed. He is clearly a few french fries short of an order.

And Zsa Zsa is *94*...what are they trying to save her life for?? She doesn't HAVE a life.

What is this guy the prince of, the cartoon network? Hes got as much credibility as Frank McCourt and his lackey Soboroff

I'll bet the Center for Surrogate Parenting would do it for the right price. The guy who runs it could get a dollar bill out from under one leg of the Eiffel Tower.

I wish Ms Gabor, the very best of good luck for a speedy recovery. Ms G, you are just like an Every Ready Battery. You just keep going, and going.

As for Princey, I think he needs to check in to the nearest mental hospital.

Forgive me if I'm wrong however the Prince claiming his age to be 67 is questionable..Wishing the grand dame Zsa Zsa Gabor a speedy recovery, I trust she is laughing or giggling to herself about his "egg's" story, especially harvesting her's.. must he never learn?
