93-year-old actress and socialite Zsa Zsa Gabor was given her last rites by a priest last night at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, according to the LA Times. Gabor broke her hip in July and stayed in the hospital until last week only to return again after developing blood clots. She was reportedly talking through Saturday, which was her 24th wedding anniversary with Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, but her conditioned worsened Sunday morning when doctors had to feed her through a tube. Gabor has been partially paralyzed since 2002, stemming from car crash on Sunset Boulevard.
