He’s back! Yup, your favorite faux prince from Germany, now living a cheesy yet slightly luxurious life at Château du Bel Air in California, is talking to the press… again.
Anyway, Frederic recently spoke to the newspaper, NY Post, about his wife, actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, and her leg which was amputated over a year and a half ago. Apparently, the poor dear had no idea that it was gone… until recently:
“She found out about it when she told me to sit her up, and she saw it. She couldn’t feel it because [one] hand is paralyzed and [one] hand was too short to go on it…
Later she said, ‘There is something missing.’ I also didn’t tell [Zsa Zsa] that her dear friend Phyllis Diller died last month… I don’t want to give bad news to my wife.”
And, finally, the faux prince recently sat down with the German television network, ZDF, for an interview/lifestyle segment thingy. Click here to watch.

In today’s edition of the Spanish newspaper, El Mundo, well-known journalist, Pilar Eyre, reports that His Majesty King Juan Carlos I of Spain has allegedly kicked his longtime and controversial mistress, Princess Corinna zu Sayn-Wittgenstein, to the curb!
The old king allegedly ended his relationship with the tarty German princess after the infamous Botswana Affair which resulted in the massive backlash against him from the people of Spain and from around the world. I suppose he’s trying to rehabilitate his reputation as a responsible dude as well as loving husband.
The blonde and busty princess has apparently fled to Monte-Carlo, Monaco where she will remain in hiding indefinitely. She has also hired a “… prestigious lawyer from Germany, Mr. Matthias Prinz…” According to Pilar Eyre, the reason why the blonde princess hired Mr. Prinz is to “… track all international media in search of information that can damage the honour of his client…”

So, now that Prince Carl Alexander and Princess Corinna von Hohenzollern are happily married the glamourous royal couple have announced that they desperately want to move back to Prince Carl Alexander’s swanky family pad, known as Schloss Sigmaringen, in Germany. Apparently, the prince, who resembles Napoleon Dynamite, revealed to the German newspaper, Bild, that “… I have the right to live in the schloss as soon as my wife is knocked up, err, pregnant…”
Any way… Princess Corinna is so excited about the move that she apparently sent out a lovely postcard to her friends and family showing off her husband’s schloss — whilst wearing her new faux gold tiara from Claire’s Accessories — with the caption, “Willkommen auf meiner Residenz!” Unfortunately, it seems that Prince Carl Alexander forgot to tell his bride that the schloss does not belong to him. Long story…
Meanwhile the Austrian television network, ORF, released an exclusive video of the princely couple’s press conference/photo-op/wedding reception held at Château du Bel Air a couple of weeks ago.
