(Newser) – Zsa Zsa Gabor is back in the hospital—this time to have her right leg amputated below the knee. The actress, who was in and out of the hospital last year after a fall that led to hip surgery, has a cancerous lesion on her leg that turned gangrenous, husband Frederic Prinz von Anhalt told Reuters. He says that when doctors told her the leg must be amputated, she started "screaming and yelling" about wanting to be home for New Year's Eve to enjoy her champagne and caviar. She was being prepped for surgery last night. Click for more, including the blood clot doctors discovered last year.
