The husband of ailing Hollywood socialite and actress Zsa Zsa Gabor was hospitalized after accidentally gluing one of his own eyes shut.
Gabor, 93, has been in and out of hospital in recent months. But this time, it was self-proclaimed Prince Frederic Von Anhalt who was rushed to hospital after he mistakenly picked up a bottle of nail glue he mistook for eye drops and sealed his eye shut, according to celebrity website TMZ.com.
The colorful 66-year-old German socialite underwent a procedure at a Beverly Hills clinic to unstick his eye.
Just two months ago, von Anhalt -- who says he was adopted as an adult by a German princess -- was hospitalized for swallowing a bee while sunbathing in his backyard.
You’d feel a twinge of sympathy for the fellow, but anyone who allows himself to be adopted as an adult so he can call himself “Prince” is asking the fates to bring down unusual minor torments. Here’s something else you probably didn’t know:
Together with his wife Zsa Zsa Gabor, Prinz von Anhalt has adopted several men. Among them are: Marcus Prinz von Anhalt (formerly known as Marcus Eberhardt), who refers to himself as "Prince Germany"; Oliver Prinz von Anhalt (formerly known as Oliver Bendig); Michael Prinz von Anhalt (formerly known as Michael Killer); as well as Markus Maximilian Prinz von Anhalt. . . .German newspapers have speculated that Frédéric is effectively selling the name, which would be a criminal offence in Germany and render the adoptions, which were made under German law, invalid.
You know, there's something about this fellow that doesn't seem quite on the up-and-up.
