Zsa Zsa Gabor was taken to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center last night to have part of her leg amputated, according to LA Now. She suffered from complications to a lesion on her leg for awhile and doctors made the decision to remove part of her leg to prevent gangrene from setting in, which would have posed a more serious health threat. Gabor had a hip replaced in July after falling in her home and had a related infection and blood clots in her legs in August. She is said to be "frail but alert" and wanted to ring in the New Year quietly at home.
