Gabor, who passed away Sunday at 99, was the middle sister between Magda and Eva.
The Hungarian-born actress broke out in America in 1952 thanks to her role in Moulin Rouge, but it was her love life that grabbed the most headlines.
She had romances with Frank Sinatra and Sean Connery and married nine times, including five years of wedded bliss with hotel magnate Conrad Hilton and a one-year marriage to Jack Ryan, who helped design the Barbie doll.
She once told reporters: "If I don't want to be with a man, I divorce him [and I] don't ask for alimony, and marry the next one."
In 1987, she was asked to speak at the American Bar Association Convention, where she discussed family law and her experiences with attorneys going through her divorces.
She told the room of legal experts: “I have learned that not diamonds, but divorce lawyers, are a girl’s best friend.”
Of all of her marriages, she only had one child – Francesca – with Conrad Hilton. Francesca passed away last year at 67.
Her marriage to Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt is by far her longest, they got hitched in 1986 and he has been with her for 30 years.

In 1994, she told Inside Edition why their marriage worked: “because he's not an actor, not even American. He's German and because I think I’m a little bit wiser, I used to be terribly jealous of the man I loved and when they looked at somebody else I would get a divorce.”
Three years after marrying her ninth and final husband, she was in the news for slapping a Beverly Hills police officer in the face during a traffic dispute.
Years later, she poked fun at the incident during a guest appearance on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. It was also mentioned during a Gabor cameo in A Very Brady Sequel in 1996.
