Reverse News Item: Zsa Zsa Takes the Fall

In a twist on her life, when previously it were the men (9 husbands and countless other paramours) taking the fall:

Zsa Zsa Gabor Hospitalized After Fall

The story:

The actress and singer Zsa Zsa Gabor was taken to Ronald Reagan U.C.L.A. Medical Center on Saturday night after breaking her hip in a fall at her home, the Los Angeles Times reported. Ms. Gabor, 93, was reaching over to answer the phone when she fell out of her bed in her home in Bel Air on Saturday evening...Ms. Gabor’s husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, told The Times that she had broken her hip. Mr. Blanchette said that she had broken several bones and that Ms. Gabor, who was partially paralyzed after a car accident in 2002 and suffered a stroke in 2005, has been “pretty much bedridden and wheelchair-bound for the last eight years.”

“She’s fragile,” he added. ”She’s still very bright. She still makes me laugh. Her faculties are intact, but her body’s failing her.”

But she is Jewish, so, a refuah shleima, a complete health recovery!

Even if she is not Jewish, why not wish her a refua shelima?

If she was a non-Jew I'd wish her good health. But some people might presume because she's a Hollywood star and not quite the paragon of stable and virtuous life, why bother. So her Jewish background trumps.
