Zsa Zsa Gabor, who’s been recovering from hip replacement surgery performed Monday, is either in critical condition and ‘not looking good,’ or ‘responsive’ and ‘going strong,’ depending on which family member you believe.

Gabor’s husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, said Friday that his wife, while not in a coma, was not responsive.

‘The doctors want to observe her over the weekend to make sure her condition improves, but right now it is not looking good,’ Von Anhalt said.

Gabor’s publicist added that the actress, believed to be 93, may have suffered a stroke, and was ‘vacant,’ Gossip Cop reports.


Daughter Constance Francesca Hilton contradicted that later Friday in a statement to Reuters: ‘She is not in a coma. She is not on any kind of death watch. She is responsive and on medications. All vital signs are still going strong, and she is talking.’

Gabor is at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
