Zsa Zsa Gabor was rushed to a hospital today after her husband found the 93-year-old actress unresponsive at their home, but she was stabilized and her condition was not considered life-threatening, according to publicists for the actress and her daughter.

Gabor, who has been in and out of Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center since falling out of bed and breaking her hip July 17, was at her Bel Air home when husband Frederic Prinz von Anhalt found her this morning and called 911, according to the actress' publicist, John Blanchette.

Shortly after noon, a publicist for Gabor's daughter, Francesca Hilton, said Gabor was back at the hospital but was stable.

"She is not in a life-threatening situation," Ed Lozzi told City News Service.

Lozzi said Gabor could be returning home soon, "but we don't know for sure."

Gabor underwent hip-replacement surgery and was released from Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center just shy of a month later. But two days later, she developed blood clots and was taken back to the hospital.

Gabor was given last rites at the hospital Aug. 15 and was brought home to her Bel Air Road mansion the following day after declining any more procedures.

Gabor's health problems have highlighted the bad blood within the actress' family. Lozzi said Francesca Hilton -- whose father was hotel magnate Conrad Hilton -- was frustrated that von Anhalt was not forthcoming with information about Gabor's condition.

Zsa Zsa is the last of the three glamorous Gabor sisters, all of whom had careers in show business. Magda, the eldest, died in 1997 at age 82. Eva, who starred in the 1960s CBS sitcom "Green Acres," died in 1995 at age 76.

Gabor's mother, Jolie, lived to be 101 years old.

Born Sari Gabor on Feb. 6, 1917, in Budapest, Hungary, she was unable to pronounce her first name as a child, calling herself Zsa Zsa instead. She was discovered by opera tenor Richard Tauber during a trip to Vienna in 1936 and was invited to perform in "Der Singende Traum," or "The Singing Dream." She arrived in the United States about 1941. In 1936, she won the Miss Hungary title, but was not able to participate in the Miss Europe pageant because she was underage.

By the early 1950s, she was appearing in films, including John Huston's version of "Moulin Rouge" and Orson Welles' "Touch of Evil."

She made headlines in 1989 when she was arrested for slapping a Beverly Hills police officer who pulled her over for a traffic violation and spent three days in jail.

In 2002, she was partly paralyzed in a car wreck in which her hairdresser was driving, and in 2005 she suffered a stroke.
