Zsa Zsa's House Hits Market, Dramatically

zsa zsa A few weeks ago we told you how Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband, Prince Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, planned to list their Bel-Air house for sale. But since a day without Zsa Zsa news is a day without sunshine, we are here to tell you that he did what he said he was going to do. The property was listed for $15 million -- and (alert the tabloids!) that may not be sitting well with the Hungarian actress' daughter, Francesca Hilton.

Hilton is causing a little dust-up, claiming that her mother made the good Prince sign a pre-nup lo those many years ago that forfeited any claim he might have to the house. Von Anhalt says his wife later rescinded that pre-nup and he has the legal right to sell the property -- and that he needs to in order to move his ailing Mrs. to a nice condominium somewhere and be able to provide her with the care she needs. So there, take that Francesca.

Family dramas aside, the 12,000-square-foot house has officially come on the market at a more realistic price -- albeit a far cry from the $28 million that Von Anhalt had initially talked about getting for the 20-room mansion. A little reality must enter our lives on occasion, after all.

Gabor has been in failing health for quite some time. In January, she lost her right leg and has been battling pneumonia and other setbacks since.

This house has been her home for more than 40 years; it was originally built for Howard Hughes and Elvis hung his guitar here for about four years while filming movies in Los Angeles. Gabor bought it from the Presley estate in the 1970s for about $600,000.

Christophe Choo of Coldwell Banker Previews International, Beverly Hills, has the listing.
