Making good on his billboard invitation, Frederic Prinz von Anhalt threw his wife of 25 years a celeb-attended wedding anniversary party that she couldn't attend. Instead, Zsa Zsa Gabor, reportedly in a pink dress and tiara, watched the party from bed, says the Hollywood Reporter. The Prince posted a video posted on Facebook page saying, "Look, my wife is 94 years old. She should have everything she wants and should have everything large. This big party is not for the guests, not for the media, nor for me -- this big party is for Zsa Zsa." And then he congratulated himself for being the husband that stuck around the longest. Saying, "So many husbands didn't make it -- they only made it a year or two. I made it 25 years so I must have done something right."

Alas, the day was not free of controversy. Von Anhalt said Spago / Wolfgang Puck would be providing their anniversary cake, but Spago founder and co-owner Barbara Lazaroff said in a statement that they were not "providing a cake or any cuisine for this event whatsoever," notes LA Now. Lazaroff continued. “I fully support Zsa Zsa’s daughter Francesca Hilton in her quest to have visitation rights to see her mother and to receive independent evaluation of Zsa Zsa’s mental and physical health.”
