Ailing 94-year-old star Zsa Zsa Gabor could become a mother again, according to her husband.
Yes, you read that correctly. Best strap yourselves in, readers. This one's a doozy.
Gabor's ninth husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, says he and his wife are trying to have a baby using a surrogate mother.
Here comes the science bit...those of a sensitive disposition may want to click away their incredulity.
Von Anhalt, 67, tells TMZ he visited a Beverly Hills fertility clinic yesterday to store his sperm. Gabor would then have a child via an egg donor, artificial insemination and a surrogate mother, he says.
"It was always my wife's dream for us to have a child ... and even though we won't be using any of her eggs, she would be thrilled to know I'm going through with this," he says.
"I am so excited!! I hope Zsa Zsa is going to hang around for awhile. I want her to see and hold the baby's hand. She will be a mother again at 95!! It was her wish to have a boy."
Gabor, who turned 94 in February, has been in and out of the hospital since July 2010. She underwent hip replacement surgery last year and had part of her right leg amputated after infection set in.
She was also hospitalised in March with respiratory problems.
Von Anhalt tells CNN: "I've gone through the initial steps of donor matching and blood work and next week the donation process will begin."
He says that the process will cost about $100,000, he estimates.
"I'm a retired guy," he adds. "I can take care of it."
He tells CNN that Gabor spoke of having a child with him when they got hitched 25 years ago. And the subject was brought up again recently, he claims.
Gabor's only child, Francesca Hilton, has raised a cynical eyebrow over Von Anhalt's actions in the past. She's accused him of creating a "circus atmosphere" around her mother.
She also took a swipe at Von Anhalt for blabbing to the press and claiming that Gabor was so shaken over pal Elizabeth Taylor's death she needed to he hospitalised.
Hilton branded it nothing more than a "shameless publicity stunt."
So what does she make of Von Anhalt's plan?
"That's just weird," Hilton said.
She's not wrong. In a word: Ewwwwww!
But as CNN points out, von Anhalt's baby plan won't work out. Or will it...?
Witherspoon: 'Pattinson sex scene disgusting'
Newlywed Reese Witherspoon says Twilight hottie Robert Pattinson wasn't a hit in the sack.
While Pattinson may be considered hot to trot among his army of fans, Witherspoon wasn't seduced by his charms.
Cool your jets - they were never an item.
Witherspoon shares a love scene with Pattinson in the upcoming flick, Water for Elephants, and reveals that filming the sensuous scenes was anything but sizzling.
"Rob possibly had the most hideous horrible cold of any co-star I've ever had to do a love scene with ever in my entire life," she told In Touch.
"He was literally snorting and snotting through every second of it - and it was not appealing. I'm talking green, infectious, disgusting - I'm not kidding!"
She added: "I'm going to say it's a little bit of a downer. I was a little disappointed. It wasn't sexy."
Pattinson has previously said he finds nothing sexy about lensing sex scenes.
"By the time you guys see the nude scenes it looks really erotic because it's been edited and you'll have the music," he said in an interview last year.
"What you don't see is the eight cameramen, the director and about 50 people on set.
"The truth is you come out of your dressing room in a little robe and know that in a few minutes you're going to be taking it off in front of a load of people."
Taking it off and having it off, in a manner of speaking. And all in the name of celluloid. Simmer down, ladies!

Speaking of the wild thing...
Courteney Cox stopped by the Late Show with David Letterman this week for a confab about her new movie, Scream 4, and, inevitably, some chatter about her estranged hubby David Arquette.
Arquette blurted during an interview on the Howard Stern Show this week that he'd made a pass at Cox during a recent family trip to Disney World.
Days after Cox's Caribbean vacation with Cougar Town co-star Josh Hopkins, the former Friends star jetted off to join Arquette and their 6-year-old daughter Coco at Magic Kingdom.
TMI alert: "Listen, I tried to f**k her, and she doesn't even want me," Arquette said. "[I thought], this is the happiest place on Earth! Let's make it happier!"
Cox rebuffed his advances.
"He did try to hit on me," she told Letterman. "He hit pretty hard. and I said, 'No more fast pass right now. Not that ride!'"
Get them an their bag of Disney puns.
As for the rumours that Cox is dating her co-star Hopkins, Arquette says they're hogwash.
"We have a really super f**king honest relationship and [a relationship with Hopkins] would have come up," he told Stern. "One hundred percent she's not [sleeping with him]."
As for a possible reconciliation, Cox said: "I don't know what's going to happen. I really don't. I'm sure this decision needs to be made at some point, but we're getting along so well that I hate to rock the boat. I really do."
