A "Royal" Place To Shop

Alert Readers will recall that I have an unholy fascination with the antics of Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband, Prinz Frederic von Anhalt. Obviously, he's as crazy as betting a NASCAR race, but he presents his insane didoes with such a self-deprecating flair that I can't help but laugh.

Some tidbits ... Born in 1944, this former masseur bought his title from an old lady. He married Zsa Zsa in 1986 and so far, this is her longest running marriage. As she is 93/96 (dates differ) I think it's safe to assume that it will be her last. Incidentally, together the couple have adopted (aka sold the title von Anhalt) to four different adult males.

He appeared on my radar in 2006, when he daintily suggested that perhaps he was the father of Anna Nicole Smith's baby daughter.

He was back in 2007, claiming that he'd been held up at gunpoint by three women who left him handcuffed and stark naked. Somehow he managed to use a cell phone to get help (amazing, really, when you remember he said that the women had taken his wallet, watch and cell phone...) Police reported no handcuffs were found at the scene.

In 2010, after a three year absence -- possibly spent recovering from the trama above -- he returned to make a bid for Governor of California. I seem to remember his platform embraced legalizing drugs and prostitution. Alas, it was not to be -- his wife's health demanded his constant presence.

Today he has opened an online shop. You can visit at but to save you time...

There are only nine items for sale. Starting at the low end:
One gubernatorial campaign button - $12.50
One campaign folder - $14.50
Choice of two styles baseball hats - $37.50 each
One campaign pillow - $65
One campaign package consisting of one pillow, two hats, two stickers and one folder - $160
One ducal house uniform (nice shade of green) - $160,000 Note to buyers: Make sure all of the medals are included.
Two Rolls Royce cars - one at $140,000; the other at $350,000
Two diamond "collars" (no photos) one at $500,000; the other at $1 million

Ah, Prinz, you never disappoint....
