Zsa Zsa Gabor lost a lawsuit
After a long-standing feud between Hollywood starlets Zsa Zsa Gabor and Elke Sommer, Gabor struck a nerve when she and her husband told German publications that Sommer was a financially strapped Hollywood has-been. This resulted in a libel suit against Gabor, which she ultimately lost in 1993. She then filed for bankruptcy.
"Everyone should look at their assets and see where they are unprotected," says Hirshman.
