Zsa Zsa Gabor
|Zsa Zsa and Profirio; Frankfurt; 1954|
Has got a new act. She’s become coy, shying away from spotlights and microphones as if she really meant it. Maybe Profirio Rubirosa has put the brakes on her. If he has, he did more than George Sanders was ever able to do.

|Profirio and Zsa Zsa; 1954|
Zsa Zsa and Profirio started dating in 1954 after Zsa Zsa's divorce from George Sanders. Rubirosa was a Dominican diplomat, polo player, Formula One driver, and playboy. Known to have dated hundreds of actresses because of his enormous "gift", the French nicknamed giant pepper-mills after him, "Rubirosas".
Profirio married several glamorous actresses and wealthy women including: actress Danielle Darrieux, socialite Doris Duke, and socialite Barbara Hutton. Every film I've seen with Danielle Darrieux in it has been delightful. Surprisingly the marriage-prone Zsa Zsa and Profirio never married each other. I wonder why?
