The last of the Gabor sisters has passed on.

(Sad to see how many people in the comment section mix her up with her sister Eva of Green Acres fame.)

Not only do I remember her in the delightfully silly Queen of Outer Space; not only do I delight in her name (born Sari, but really; is there a better first name than Zsa Zsa?); but also there was something about her self-aware mockery of her own gold-digging persona that was charming.

She is the blueprint that so many wannabe reality stars aspire too. But I think she knew enough to understand the essentially silly nature of celebrity and was able to be a self-parody without sacrificing her dignity or her endearing sense of humor.

Yeah, she and Charo were kind of the models for the art of being famous for being famous.
