Hollywoodlegend Zsa Zsa fights for her life

Actress Zsa Zsa Gabor was in a critical condition today after undergoing hip replacement surgery earlier in the week,.

Gabor (93), had injuries to the right side of her body, including a broken hip, after she fell out of bed last weekend trying to get into a wheelchair at her Bel-Air home, said Prince Frederic von Anhalt, Gabor's husband.

Gabor initially appeared to be recovering after the hip surgery on Monday at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Her publicist John Blanchette said von Anhalt told him on Friday that "doctors were working very hard to stabilise her".

"Right now she's not communicative," Blanchette said. "Only time will tell."

Blanchette had said Friday that the actress might have suffered a stroke during surgery

Von Anhalt said his wife was conscious.

"She looks at us but doesn't know what is going on," he said.
