Playing Zsa Zsa Gabor Laid to Rest Amid Controversy and Dueling Memorial Services

Frederic Prinz von Anhalt, Gabor's husband of more than 30 years, is furious over accusations that he created a fraudulent list of guests for his wife’s memorial.

“People who attack me because of my wife's funeral — they are low, low, low class lunatics,” he told Inside Edition.

Hollywood publicist Edward Lozzi, who claims to have represented Gabor, claims her widower was circulating names of stars who have no intention of attending.

It claims Barbara Eden, Larry King, Carol Channing George Hamilton and Quincy Jones demanded their names be taken off the supposed guest list.

Eden, however, said she never asked for her name to be taken off.

"I wasn't told about Zsa Zsa's services," she told Inside Edition. "I certainly would have loved to be there." 

The publicist claimed he is planning a small private alternative memorial for his former client and her real family friends in January.

Gabor’s husband claims Lozzi never represented his late wife.

Von Anhalt added that he invited celebrities to the funeral from a list of Gabor’s friends. She was laid to rest Friday at Westwood Cemetery in Los Angeles.

Lozzi says he's going ahead with a rival memorial service and told Inside Edition: "It will be a graveside memorial of about 30 people and no press." 

Gabor's widower told Inside Edition: "If there is any small chance to file a criminal complaint against him, I will do it. They will go down!" 

Debbie Reynolds is also expected to be buried at Westwood Cemetery, along with her daughter, Carrie Fisher.
