I don't recall any of the Gabors making assblasting vids to get their names out.

Although "attention whore" does rhyme with "Gabor", I think that's as close as it gets

Were any of them on a show as great as Green Acres? 
Advantage Gabor.

The Gabors also had some actual talent.

I wouldn't have minded seeing Eva get her hotscake frosted.

Zsa Zsa had the common courtesy to only break out the Super 8 of Sammy Davis peeing on her at the annual Christmas party.

Romanovs would be more appropriate...

Yeah, acting on "Green Acres" was a real stretch.

Also, the Gabor sister were actually beautiful, elegant, and Hungarian.

They're not Gabors. They're hobbits.

How the heck do "Do You Remember?" articles get approved? They always seem to either crash or fail to open in several browsers I've tried (finally opened in IE, but not before getting a "are you sure you want to open this? We're pretty sure they're trying to install spyware." message.).

Then maybe one of the Kardashians will slap a cop. Nowadays she'll get shot. One can hope.
 
2014-01-20 08:19:41 AM  
You know the days I long for?  The ones when we stop acting like it's surprising/not surprising that bullsh*t is a vicious cycle of bullsh*t.

They always wear charms, diamonds, pearls galore?

"When you really think about it, the Kardashians are nothing more than like modern day Gabors "

FTFY, subby.
 
2014-01-20 08:28:03 AM  
The only thing prescient about this comparison is the realization we'll be dealing with the Kardashians getting older, then very old, slapping cops and hitting people with their cars and getting married to old losers for the umpteenth time.
 
2014-01-20 08:31:53 AM  
"Confession time: we love the Kardashians."

Having a reality series on a low ratings basic cable network does not a "we love" make.
 
2014-01-20 08:40:02 AM  
The Gabors were hot and a source of cultural pride for Hungarians.

The Kardashians are skanky and...
Any Armenian Farkers want to comment?
 
2014-01-20 08:48:17 AM  
Magda Gabor (the non-actress sister) was a brave woman who saved hundreds of lives in World War II.  Eva was a good actress.  Zsa Zsa was a drama queen par excellence, and a very entertaining character.  Jolie was a shrewd businesswoman.  The Kardashians are manufactured trash.

I don't. Ever.

"Zsa Zsa had the common courtesy to only break out the Super 8 of Sammy Davis peeing on her at the annual Christmas party."

Where do you think R.Kelly got his inspiration from?

My GF's is Armenian and her family is old country and the Kardashians are never ever mentioned in conversation.
If by chance they appear on the T.V. they are referred to as "Schelecty" (spelling) meaning disgraceful and undesirable, or so I've been told.
I can't imagine anyone on the planet looks at the Karadashians and feels pride.

Back in the day there were tons of "celebrities" that were always showing up on variety shows and being famous for being famous. Kind of a neat feat in the pre-internet days. What was Richard Simmons for before sweatin' to the oldies? Or guys like Paul Lynde, who were just raconteurs for Dick Cavett and Johnny Carson to have as guests.
 
2014-01-20 10:37:21 AM  
The Gabors didn't have any money of their own.

Lynde was a major star on Broadway (Bye Bye Birdie) and a frequent sitcom guest star in the 60s (Uncle Arthur on Bewitched, for example) - he wasn't just a "raconteur".

[Zsa Zsa Gabor approaches the restaurant table of Orson Welles, whose dog is under the table.]

Gabor:  How are you darling?  How wonderful to see you.
Dog:     Arf! Arf!
Gabor:   Whose dog is that?
Welles: That's my dog, who bites.
Gabor:   [To the dog]:  You bite?
Welles:  Yes.  Especially Hungarians.

Hooterville has to figure in somehow.

Nope. The Gabors were at least beauty pageant winners. The KarDOUCHEians don't even have that slim excuse for fame.

I never "really thought about" the Gabors, either, but yes, "famous for being famous...talent undetected, except for marrying up" is the M.O.

I don't think I'm Armenian but the old man prevented a riot. So they have that going for them.

Fair enough. I think it was his long stint on Hollywood Squares that made his name jump out at me. Maybe something along Joan Rivers lines? The sort of person that hadn't been in a movie, play, or real role in a tv show in years but still did the talk show circuit and generally regarded as famous? The Gabors were definitely that. (I qualified Real Role because back then every tv show also had those sorts of people as the "special guest star" every week)

IIRC, Joan Rivers started out as a comedienne, which led to the Tonight Show appearances, which led to everything else.

I'd try to make a trifecta of fail by mentioning Phyllis Diller, but I KNOW she was in some things so I'm going to slink back to lurking ITT until I can googleresearch C-list celebrities of the 50s, 60s, and 70s..

Diller was also a Stand-Up, like Joan Rivers.

The stand-ups Johnny liked became regulars on The Tonight Show, which got them more TV gigs.

There was a hierarchy to get through with Johnny.

1. Get invited to do your act on the show
2. Get invited back to do it again
3. Get invited to sit on the couch for the next segment after your act
4. #3 but this time Johnny interviews you
5. Get invited to the show for an interview without having to do your act first

If your only impression of the Gabors were their old camp incarnations, you might be forgiven for the equation. Gsa Gsa was once a very chic, witty socialite.
