Even celebrities believe in the "myth of threes," as in celeb deaths happen in sets of threes. Case in point, long-suffering Zsa Zsa Gabor, who has been in and out of the hospital numerous times in the past several months, including recently for leg amputations. The 94-year-old actress was back at the hospital yesterday, reports the AP, when the distressing news of Elizabeth Taylor's death "made Gabor fear she was next," and caused her blood pressure to soar.

Gabor learned of Taylor's death by watching the television news Wednesday morning. Publicist John Blanchette says the actress was "inconsolable," and that she lamented: “Oh, Jane Russell and Liz Taylor — I’m next.” (Russell died at age 89 on February 28th.)

Gabor was released from the hospital in the evening.
