Zsa Zsa Gabor preparing to die at home

It seems the actress asked for a priest “to read her the last rites” on Sunday due to complications that appeared after her surgery. Gabor was hospitalized at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles until Monday when she was taken home.

“The doctors did everything they could do,” her husband, Prince Frederic Von Anhalt, said. “The rest is up to her to whether she recovers or not.” A source revealed: “It’s terribly sad. To have such a fabulous life come down to possibly being booted into the street just brings you to tears.

“If she hadn’t gotten caught up in Madoff’s scheme, Zsa Zsa could go out in the style to which she has been accustomed. “Now, she’s in the same boat as others who bet their life-savings on the silver-tongued sales pitches of con men. “The thought of Zsa Zsa going out penniless is tragic. It’s a sad final act in a life that she lived to the fullest.”

Brittany Murphy – Simon Monjack possible cause of death: mold

This parasitic fungus has the ability to attack the breathing system.

The American actress Brittany Murphy and her husband, Simon Monjack, died within five months of each other, and both deaths were initially put into pneumonia.

The two deaths are now investigated by the Department of Public Health in Los Angeles, and mold is considered a relevant factor for the respiratory health systems of the two artists.

The presence of mold in the West Hollywood Hills residence of the couple was seen by police officers since December 2009, when they were investigating the circumstances of death of actress Brittany Murphy, but at that time, it was considered “a factor”.

Sharon Murphy, the mother of Brittany Murphy, allowed U.S. investigators to examine again the victims residence. Monjack Simon’s mother decided to leave Europe and move back in the United States to be present while investigation occurs.

Recently, Roger Neal, Simon Monjack’s press officer, confirmed that Simon needed a bypass intervention, but it was postponed because he was – professionally – too busy.

Brittany Murphy, known for her roles in “Clueless” and “8 Mile”, has died at the age of 32 following a cardiac arrest on December 20, 2009. She was discovered in the bathroom of her residence in Hollywood Hills.

According to forensic experts, in her blood was discovered a combination of medicines with and without prescription. The doctors didn’t detect any drugs in Brittany’s bloodstream.

Her husband, screenwriter Simon Monjack has been found dead in his home in LA, five months after her death.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s baby mother is a waitress in Los Angeles

Ronaldo had an affair with a young night that gave birth to a baby boy on June 17. Later, he paid her 12 million euros to give up her parental rights and to remain anonymous.

According to the Sunday Mirror, Ronaldo initially tried to draw attention to the young girl with a clear sexual proposal: “Me, you, f*** f***”. Initially, she didn’t understand what he wanted, so Ronaldo drew a heart on a steamed window next to his table and said: “Me, you, kiss.”

“That’s typical Ronni – he pretends his English is terrible when it suits him, and he comes straight to the point. It was just yet another one-night stand and Ronnie assumed he would never see her again”, said a friend of the player .

After she realized she was pregnant, the girl contacted Ronaldo through his agent, Jorge Mendes. Mendes told Ronaldo, and he immediately announced his mother and his sisters.

Together, they established that when the child is born he should do a paternity test and if it’s a positive result, he should support them financially. Subsequently, footballer’s mother, Delores, insisted that the best solution is that Ronaldo’s baby should be raised in Portugal, by her and her daughters.

Dolores believes that her nephew’s mother should have a good financial situation. “It would offend Dolores for the child to find his mother living in poverty. It’s a huge amount of money, but Ronni insists it’s not a big deal because he’s worth £100 million and he’s got the best part of his career ahead of him still”, said the player’s friend.

Despite being voted FIFA Player of the Year in 2009 and moving to Real Madrid from Manchester United for a record-breaking £80million last year, Ronaldo had a poor World Cup in South ­Africa.

Tipped to be one of the mega-stars of the tournament, he scored just once in five games, prompting speculation about his indifferent form.

But his friend insisted: “Ronni said was pleased to become a father, even though he hadn’t planned to have the child. He hasn’t even told his closest friends who the mother is. I had guessed she was a Bunny Girl from Vegas, but she isn’t a well-known party girl or socialite. She had hardly a dime to her name until she was paid by Ronni.”

The baby, born on June 17, is now in Portugal, with his grandmother.

News from 2009 Los Angeles: Hyundai’s 2011 Sonata

The Sonata’s specs are looking promising against its targeted competition. The default engine, a 2.4-liter I-4, returns 35 mpg highway. The interior has gained in every dimension from last year’s version. Boasting of standard features like Bluetooth, stability control, and a six-speaker stereo with MP3 support, the Sonata will still start under $20,000.

“The V-6, in the midsize sedan, will go the way of the dinosaur,” said John Krafcik, president of Hyundai America. Thus, powertrain options consist of four-cylinder engines only, with a turbocharged 2.0-liter direct-injection I-4. This one will offer more power than the outgoing 3.3-liter V-6, above 249 hp and 229 lb-ft of torque.

At the 2010 New York auto show in April a hybrid model Sonata will also will be unveiled. The car will use a similar system to what’s been shown in the Elantra LPi hybrid overseas, and will sport lithium polymer batteries.

Montgomery, Alabama will be the place of birth the new Sonata is entering production, and it will be introduced in February.
