Hey 3.5 readers.
Sad news as Zsa Zsa Gabor has passed on at 99. Perhaps you’ve seen her a rerun of Green Acres, but as a Professor of Pop Culture, allow me to explain her appeal.
She was pretty much the first person to be famous for the sake of being famous. The first “celebutante.” Without Zsa Zsa, you wouldn’t have Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian and so on.
Feel free to argue about whether or not that’s a good thing, but at least Zsa Zsa carried a sitcom. What have Paris and Kim done for us lately?
