(CBS) Does death come in threes? After hearing the tragic news of Elizabeth Taylor's death, Zsa Zsa Gabor feared she was next and was sent to the hospital with high blood pressure, said her publicist.
John Blanchette says Gabor was inconsolable and commented: "Oh, Jane Russell and Liz Taylor - I'm next," in reference to the common myth.
Blanchette says the 94-year-old celebrity was watching the news Wednesday morning at her Los Angeles home when she learned her friend and one-time neighbor had died.
Blanchette says Gabor's blood pressure soared and she was taken to the hospital until Monday evening.
Gabor has been in poor health lately- her right leg was partially amputated in January. But Blanchette calls her a fighter and claims: "She's not going to be the third."
