Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor hospitalized in Westwood

Zsa Zsa Gabor was taken to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center on Sunday evening for surgery to amputate part of her leg, according to her publicist.

The 93-year-old actress had been suffering from problems with a lesion on the leg, said John Blanchette, Gabor’s longtime spokesman. Doctors checked the actress Sunday and said they feared gangrene could set in and cause a more serious health threat, he said.

Gabor underwent hip replacement surgery in July after falling in her Beverly Hills home. She suffered an infection complication in August, and more recently had blood clots in her leg, according to Blanchette. He said Gabor has been frail but alert and had wanted to celebrate a quiet New Year’s at home.
