Zsa Zsa seeks entry into glamorous death triad.

Aware of the superstition that celebrity deaths come in threes, she said: "Oh, Jane Russell and Liz Taylor — I'm next."

You wish, slap-ho.

Blue Ox said...

I hope not. I don't have her in my Dead Pool.

Give it your best shot, Zsa Zsa!

Why does this feel like a not so subtle wish to be considered in the same breath as Liz Taylor and Jane Russell.

(and maybe from the "how many marriages is it now" standpoint she can be discussed in the same conversation regarding Liz)

The Crack Emcee said...

A fine example of how the mind works.

And why a foundation in critical thinking is a must.

Pfffftt. She'd be lucky to land the third spot in a trio with Mamie Van Doren and Beverly Garland. ;)

vbspurs said...

LOL Kent. +1 for Mamie Van Doren.

MadisonMan said...

Gabor has been in ill health and her right leg was partially amputated in January

I don't think that's what they actually mean. Unless she's walking around with a leg that's been half-sawn through.

I came THISclose to going with Tor Johnson in the Garland spot, instead... but then thought: "... too obscure, though...?" ;)

SteveR said...

MM: good catch

MadisonMan said...

I'm just picturing ZZ walking around, dragging a leg that's not quite attached, and I'm laughing to myself.

I know, I know, I'm going to H@ll for this, but that's okay. All my friends will be there.

wv: gambler.

Hilarious take, Althouse.

Coketown said...

Get over yourself, Zsa Zsa. We all know it will be Jane Russell, Liz Taylor, and Betty White. That's the trinity.

Come to think of it...there must be some biennial weed that kills off celebrities. 2009 had a big wave. 2011 is shaping up to be a repeat.

Christopher in MA said...

OK, Kent, you made me google Beverly Garland. Nice, if not my cup of tea. But boy, I'd take MVD and Jayne Mansfield in a trio any time :-)

But I'll up the obscurity sweepstakes (and since I expect Victoria to get it, she can't guess!) - Eva, Magda and Zsa Zsa were our version of the "Marrying Mdivanis."

I miss George Sanders

Betty White?? Noooooooooooooo!!!

;)

Word Verification: whoble. Whe bulls whoble but whe don't fall down. :D

Coketown said...

@Tibore: Sophia in 2008, Dorothy in 2009, Blanche in 2010. It's sad to say, but Rose is next for 2011.

kent said...

@ChristopherInMA: I'll see your obscurity raise, and raise again with... Dagmar! ;)

Christopher in MA said...

Not even close, Kent :). I'm a Sinatra fan, too, so I know her from "Mama Will Bark." (sorry, but I never can figure out links).

I see you and raise - Diana Dors.

wv - "jectu." What I wouldn't do to Dagmar.

kent said...

Fine. Tura Satana, then. I'm easy. ;)

Christopher in MA said...

Nope. I know her, too. But one of Russ Meyer's best films, I think.

And now I will fold, since I can't think of anybody else of the top of my head (oh, well, Ruth Ellis, but she wasn't a film star by any means). So I tip my metaphorical hat to you, Kent, and ease slowly away from the table. . .

kent said...

No, no. A draw, absolutely. And masterfully played, sir! [::pushes half of metaphorical chip pile towards Chris::]

David said...

Nancy Reagan.

The gipper is still waiting for her.

John Lynch said...

So much death.

Mr. D said...

Zsa Zsa is on the Dina Merrill level. The only elderly female star left that I can think of on Taylor's level is Doris Day.

Rockport Conservative said...

So... I'm out of the loop. when did Jane Russel die?

ampersand said...

Anyone dismissings Zza Zza's acting chops has never experienced the classic "The Girl in the Kremlin".
The only film brave enough to ask not only if Stalin is still alive but if he really liked to go swimmin with bald headed women.

WV: poonshed. No kidding.

Good one! Or Sophia Loren.

vbspurs said...

Rockport, yeah, shame, Jane popped her clogs on 28 February. One of her last photos.

Wiki censors truth, removes Celebrity Death Triad entry. What's next. Who's truth matters?

Greg said...

Wikipedia doesn't want this story told.
