HOLLYWOOD


Judge Charles Rubin, who presided over her cop-slapping trial 22 years ago, revisits Zsa Zsa Gabor at her 25th wedding anniversary celebration.

HOLLYWOOD — Went to Zsa Zsa Gabor and Prince Frederick Anhalt’s 25th anniversary party in their Bel-Air home. Phyllis Diller, 94, and “Batman’s” Cat Woman, Julie Newmar, 78, were the first to arrive. Robert Blake sat at the piano, and sang and danced. Quincy Jones, producer of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and “Mad TV,” as well as Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” video and album, sat with me poolside. He’s such a nice man, and he didn’t refuse any of the 50 people who wanted photos taken with him. Zsa Zsa only received in her bedroom, though none of the above saw her. However, Judge Charles Rubin, who sentenced her to community service 22 years ago for slapping a cop, was shown into her boudoir … go figure!

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO …
Tab Hunter, 80, did “Battle Cry” (1955), “Damn Yankees” (1958) and “Grease 2” (1982). His tell-all book, “Tab Hunter: Confidential,” is being made as a documentary. He lives on his horse ranch in Santa Barbara with his partner of many years.

Chad Everett, 75, did “Medical Center,” “Airplane 2” (1982) and the series “Undercovers” last year. He’s in the new web series “No Clean Break.”

Connie Stevens did “Hawaiian Eye,” “Grease 2” (1982) and “Back to the Beach” (1987). She wed actor James Stacy (1963-’67) and Eddie Fisher (1967-’69) and has two daughters with Fisher, Joely and Tricia Leigh. Connie still does her club act and has several successful businesses, including the beauty product “Forever Young.”

Ann-Margret, 70, did “Bye, Bye Birdie” and “Viva Las Vegas” with Elvis. Sixteen films later she was Oscar-nominated for “Carnal Knowledge” with Jack Nicholson and won praise for The Who’s “Tommy.” She was in the film “Lucky” with Colin Hanks out last month. She wed Roger Smith in ’67 and won her first Emmy last year for “Law & Order: SVU.”

Her “Bye, Bye Birdie” co-star Bobby Rydell is 69 and still tours with Frankie Avalon and Fabian.

Shelley Fabares, 67, of “The Donna Reed Show,” had a No. 1 hit record with “Johnny Angel” (1962) and starred on the sitcom “Coach.” She wed “M*A*S*H’s” Mike Farrell in 1972 and had a successful liver transplant in 2000. In 2006, Shelley voiced an animated straight-to-video film, but has made her health her main priority.

Richard Beymer did “The Diary of Anne Frank” (1959) and the films “High Time” with Bing Crosby and Fabian and “West Side Story” with Natalie Wood in the 1960s, plus the 1990s’ series “Twin Peaks.” Richard lives in Fairfield, Iowa, where he writes, paints, takes photos and makes movies.

Bette Davis once said, “You must let your public see you once a year so you grow old together.” These teen heartthrobs probably would prefer to have you remember them the way they were!
