Looks like we can blame Alex Trebek in part for Zsa Zsa Gabor's hospitalization this weekend.

While watching a certain game show in her Bel-Air home Saturday evening, the 93-year-old actress fell out of bed while trying to answer a phone call.    

"She was watching her favorite show, Jeopardy!, when the phone rang," said Gabor publicist John Blanchette. "She reached over to pick it up and fell."

Gabor was rushed to UCLA Medical Center and listed in serious condition. The Hungarian-born star's hubby, Prince Frédéric von Anhalt, said Gabor broke her hip in the fall and will need hip-replacement surgery.

The famed socialite, already partially paralyzed from a 2002 car accident, also suffered a stroke in 2005. 

"She's fragile, but she's still very bright—she still makes me laugh," Blanchette told the Los Angeles Times. "Her faculties are intact, but her body's failing her." 

Her publicist added that Gabor has been "pretty much bedridden and wheelchair-bound for the last eight years."

We wish her the best in her recovery.
