We lost a memorable – and sometimes tragic – Hollywood character yesterday. Zsa Zsa Gabor’s only child, Francesca Hilton, 67, died of a heart attack/stroke, according to her publicist, Edward Lozzi. Francesca was born average looking into a family of impossibly beautiful women. Her mother was still married to Conrad Hilton when Francesca was born, but she was romancing actor George Sanders and there was always doubt about Francesca’s real father. Francesca struggled to live up to family expectations but she always had a sense of humor and friendly demeanor. She loved gossip and was always very open when talking about her family. She and her mother’s last husband Prince Frederic von Anhalt clashed continuously in court over money and access to ailing Zsa Zsa so Francesca’s last few years have not been easy. She had a big personality and we will miss her.

    Who would think Zsa Zsa would outlive her daughter?

    Francesca fought the brave fight to keep her mother from being robbed, abused and abandoned for many years.. RIP good daughter.. I think she was smart pretty and kind.. and that’s what is the main beauty to possess in any human.

    I don’t mean to be judgey, but why did she have a publicist?

    She was born into a family of legendary beauties. To her credit, she did fight for her mother. RIP

    Why did a Hilton die penniless? I bet the nutty fake Prince doesn’t tell ZsaZsa that she has died. But I probably wouldn’t either. Why upset a fragile lady in her 90’s?

    I guess all that weight finally killed her. At least now there’ll be no more fights over Zsa Zsa’s money, that she was always trying to get her hands on. Looks like the loony “prince” with the purchased title will end up with it after all.

    I hope someone will write her autobiography and in a way that celebrates her life and the huge challenges she had to overcome. She wanted to be part of a family and loved by her mother and father, one who seems to have been a sex addict and the other who wouldn’t acknowledge her at all.

    Still, by all accounts, she was smart, funny and kind. What a triumph!

    Zsa Zsa has dementia – and can’t speak – so she would have no understanding of what’s going on. The “fake” Prince always like to act like she’s doing well. I hope “fake” prince winds up with no money and is forced to live in his car. So sad for Francesca — she and her mother never had a good relationship and it appears that none of the Hiltons helped her in any way. Tragic!!!!!
