The Hungarian-American socialite and actress has been ailing since summer 2010. Gabor has had a colorful career that paved the way for the next generation of celebrities who were simply "famous for being famous." (And she managed to do that before reality TV!)

Gabor's publicist announced earlier today that the 93-year-old was scheduled to undergo surgery at 11AM PST at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.

TMZ reports that there were no unexpected difficulties incurred during the procedure, and Gabor is expect to heal. Doctor are keeping an extra eye on her just in case because of her age.
