(Newser) – Zsa Zsa Gabor has undergone successful surgery to replace the hip she broke over the weekend when she fell out of bed at her Bel-Air home, her husband said today. Prince Frederic von Anhalt says the 93-year-old actress was in surgery for 3½ hours at Ronald Reagan UCLA medical center. In a telephone call, he said she was in recovery and he was waiting to see her.

He said her surgeon was happy with everything and there were no problems. Publicist John Blanchette said Gabor was watching television Saturday night when she reached to answer the phone and tumbled to the floor. The Hungarian actress is partially paralyzed from a 2002 car accident, which required her to use a wheelchair. She also reportedly had a stroke in 2005.
