Zsa Zsa Gabor taken
to hospital by ambulance
LOS ANGELES — Zsa Zsa Gabor was rushed to a hospital Wednesday in an ambulance when blood flow stopped to her leg, a publicist said.
Doctors ordered the ailing 94-year-old actress to go to UCLA Medical Center because of the problem with her left leg, publicist John Blanchette said.
Most of Gabor’s right leg was amputated in January because of gangrene.
Gabor broke her hip and had replacement surgery in July. She has been hospitalized several times since then for swelling, clots and infections.
She celebrated her birthday at home on Feb. 6 and watched the Oscars Sunday with her husband.
The actress is partially paralyzed from a 2002 car accident and now uses a wheelchair.
Gabor, a native of Hungary, appeared in films ranging from “Moulin Rouge” in 1952 to “Queen of Outer Space” in 1958.
arrested for drunkenness
WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Singer Christina Aguilera and her boyfriend have been arrested on suspicion of being drunk in a car that was stopped on a West Hollywood street.
Sheriff’s Deputy Bill McSweeney says Aguilera was a passenger in the car that was stopped at about 2:45 a.m. Tuesday.
Her boyfriend, 25-year-old Matthew Rutler, was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence. His bail was set at $30,000.
McSweeney says Aguilera appeared to be extremely intoxicated and unable to look after her own welfare.
A sheriff’s website says she was booked on suspicion of a misdemeanor but McSweeney said she was essentially being held at the West Hollywood sheriff’s station for her own protection and is expected to be released without facing criminal charges.
Calls to her agent and publicist weren’t returned early Tuesday.
