LOS ANGELES – When Zsa Zsa Gabor was being taken into surgery Friday to have her right leg amputated, her husband didn’t tell her what the surgery was.

“I didn’t want her to get hysterical and the blood pressure goes up,” said Frederic Prinz von Anhalt.

But the 93-year-old actress joked about it Saturday night after he finally gave her the news, saying, “I’m gonna die anyhow.”

Doctors amputated much of the actress’ leg to fight a gangrene infection that could have killed her.
