Von Anhalt tells TMZ ... doctors will administer anesthesia to Zsa Zsa today ... something  "very risky," according to her doctors, because of her age.

Once she's under, doctors will perform an MRI to figure out their plan of attack in removing a blood clot.  If they determine it can't be removed, von Anhalt says doctors will then amputate half her leg.

Good grief people, you obviously have no clue as to who starred in Green Acres.

At least Princey is keeping Harvey updated. Attention whore or not, it's best to have the facts straight from the source. I still feel sorry for the guy...

Von Ahole is a fake prince, he ran a gay bath house and bought his title from an impoverished old royal back in Germany. ZZ is having a leg removed today, she should have had this toxic pustule removed from her butt years ago, he has stayed with her and lived off her money for many years.

This woman was NEVER in Green Acres. It was her sister.

Both she and her husband are in my prayers today. What a horrible situation this is.

THIS LYING SCHUCK IS A FAKE, AND A FRUITCAKE, HE WAS A HOMOSEXUAL MASSEUR TIL HE BOUGHT HIS TITLE, WIKIPEDIA BELOW:

Prinz von Anhalt was born as Hans Robert Lichtenberg (other sources state Hans-Georg Lichtenberg)[citation needed] in Bad Kreuznach, Germany.[1] He was one of 5 children at home, and his grandmother also lived with them. His father was the chief of police in Frankfurt.[1]

In 1980, he was adopted as an adult by Princess Marie-Auguste of Anhalt (1898-1983), daughter-in-law of German Emperor William II.[1]

"Prinz von Anhalt" is his surname, rather than a title, as per German laws regarding the country's former nobility.[1] Marie Auguste's first husband was Prince Joachim of Prussia, the youngest son of German Emperor Wilhelm II. Prince Joachim committed suicide in 1920 after four years of marriage. She subsequently (in 1926) wed Johannes-Michael Freiherr von Loën, whom she divorced in 1935.[2]

Some reports state that Prinz von Anhalt, a former masseur,[3] has claimed to be a friend of Princess Marie Auguste's only child, Prince Karl Franz of Prussia (1916-1975), and that the grieving mother adopted him out of kindness and "gave" him the name Prince Frederic von Anhalt, Duke of Saxony. However, British press reports indicate that Princess Marie Auguste was bankrupt and the adoption was apparently a business transaction. The transaction was said to be masterminded by Hans Hermann Weyer, a former window dresser who became an honorary consul of Bolivia in Luxembourg,[4] known for selling certificates of nobility, doctoral degrees from invented colleges and universities, and other decorations in Germany throughout the 1960...s.[5][6]

Although Princess Marie-Auguste adopted Frédéric, the rest of the ducal family of Anhalt (the House of Ascania) has never recognized him as being part of their lineage nor that he be entitled to any official title.[citation needed] The House of Ascania's family website states that the adoption laws of Germany allow adult adoptions with almost no conditions, and that the website itself lists only people who actually descend from the House of Ascania. Frédéric is not listed on the website.[7]

When asked about the title in his name in 2010, Prinz von Anhalt said that he was a family friend and had played soccer for a long time with the son of Princess Marie-Auguste, and that she agreed to adopt him. He also said: "It doesn't mean anything, it’s just a name. After 1918 in Germany royalty didn't exist any longer."[1]

@ketjo: I can't believe someone telling such crap about F von Anhalt! I happen to be german and everybody over here feels he's an embarassing liar if not worse! AND HE'S NOT A REAL PRINCE, he was born Hans-Robert Lichtenberg, look it up on http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fr%C3%A9d%C3%A9ric_von_Anhalt - he's just a stinky proletarian, sorry to disappoint you..

MY GOODNESS, some of you people read but you do not comprehend. It has been stated over, and over, and over, that it was Eva Gabor on Green Acres and NOT Zsa Zsa! I KNOW THAT FOR A FACT, TOO! For Heaven's sake, consult the internet and, LEARN!!!

You Know It's True    

Some of these comments are just plain nasty! Zsa Zsa no matter was and is part of our Hollywood culture. Personally I love her tenacity! At 93 it is frightening what is happening, but as someone posted earlier, she must not be of clear mind for someone else to make the decision. She is not an animal she is a human being and to decide to let her die as opposed to try and save her is a ridicules argument. Could care less if her husband is a Prince or not....I do believe when it comes down to it, he is doing what is best for her, period.
