    Celebrities Gather For A Zsa Zsa Gabor Christmas

    (Hollywood, CA)-Last Sunday night hundreds of the Hollywood establishment from the movie and music industries visited the $11 million Bel Air mansion of famed actress Zsa Zsa Gabor. They gathered to honor her and celebrate the holidays with a red carpet Christmas party. Gabor’s husband, Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt, was the master of ceremonies, as he greeted guests outside of the marvelous home that overlooks Los Angeles. The red carpet was complete with a snow-covered lawn that made guests feel like they were experiencing that “White Christmas” from the age-old Bing Crosby song. Inside attendees were treated with a delicious assortment of foods and beverages and enjoyed holiday carols near a grand piano and a lavishly decorated Christmas tree. Though Zsa Zsa Gabor herself was not able to attend the event because of her illness, her family and friends appreciated the 30th Annual Christmas Celebration of the soon to be 97 year old actress.

    “I think that it is wonderful that Prince Frédéric and Zsa Zsa Gabor are still putting on this holiday party. It has been a fixture of the Hollywood scene over many years and many in the community are very thankful for their hospitality. We also appreciate the work of them both to raise money for charities over the years”, said West Hollywood entertainment advocate John Carvalho, speaking in front of a beautiful painting of the actress that towered over the dining room as if to remind guests of her presence.

    Among Zsa Zsa Gabor’s many films are the seven-time Academy Award nominated “Moulin Rouge” (1952; Directed by John Huston), where she starred opposite José Ferrer. Gabor’s performance lit up the screen and the fabulous pageantry, art decoration, and rich color of the film won two of the Oscars that year. Moulin Rouge was also up for “Best Picture”. Some of her other movies include “Lovely to Look At” (1952), “We're Not Married!” (1952), “Lili” (1953), “3 Ring Circus” (1954), “Death of a Scoundrel” (1956), “The Man Who Wouldn't Talk” (1958), “Pepe” (1960), “Jack of Diamonds” (1967), and the comedy “The Naked Gun 2½: The Smell of Fear” (1991).
