Financial Wit and Wisdom of Zsa Zsa Gabor

For more lighthearted Sunday entertainment please consider the Financial Wit and Wisdom of Zsa Zsa Gabor

Hungarian actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, who has asked for a priest to administer the last rites, may not have looked like a feminist but had robust views about how women should stand up for themselves financially.

Zsa Zsa, 93, married nine times – mostly to very wealthy men – and distilled her wit and wisdom into memorable one-liners.

For example, she once said: “I learned in school that money isn’t everything. It’s happiness that counts. So Momma sent me to a different school.”

She famously preferred divorce to legal separation from her former partners because, she said: “Legal separation gives the husband time to hide his money.”

And there was more than a grain of truth in her claim: “I am a marvelous housekeeper. Every time I leave a man I keep his house.”

When accused of marrying so often it amounted to serial polygamy she observed: “There is nothing wrong with a woman welcoming all men’s advances as long as they are in cash.”
