Zsa Zsa Gabor rushed to hospital after losing consciousness

Zsa Zsa Gabor is back in the hospital after losing consciousness at her Bel Air home.

The Hungarian actress has also been fighting a high fever and bleeding from a tube in her stomach, says her husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt. Paramedics rushed her to UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center for treatment.

Gabor, 94, broke her left hip in July 2010 while trying to reach for the telephone and has been in and out of the hospital ever since. In January she had most of her right leg amputated due to an infection, which the doctors feared would cost the actress her life.

Her right leg had been previously damaged; she was using a wheelchair after a car accident in 2002 and a stroke in 2005. The actress and socialite received last rites from a priest in August.

Von Anhalt, who announced he was running for mayor of Los Angeles on Thursday, was in the hospital just last month after being hit by a car in Beverly Hills. The 68-year-old socialite had to be treated for cuts to his hip and hands, but did not press charges against the driver.
