Zsa Zsa Gabor's husband, Prince Frederic von Anhalt, has been giving reporters tours of their Bel Air mansion, hoping it will drum up good publicity for a hoped-for $28 million sale following Gabor's stint in hospital that ended with a leg being amputated.

Von Anhalt, who TMZ has taken to calling Von A-Hole, is obviously so concerned about his wife's health only days after the tragic amputation that he's counting all "their" money.

"I am sick and tired of hiding behind those three words, 'rich and famous,'" he told reporters. "Maybe we are famous, but we are not rich.'' Really?

This is the guy who's been rocking a Bentley in Beverly Hills and having lunch at the Ivy as TMZ's cameras wait outside.

He says the 28-room, 12,000-square-foot home once owned by Elvis is a burden.

Van A-Hole said Gabor's medical costs are $21,000 a month, and upkeep and debt on the home sets the couple back an additional $35,000.

A sale would come with a huge caveat: Van A-Hole and the 93-year-old Gabor would get to stay rent free (until?).

"This house goes," he said.

Fox 11 News reported that the house cost somewhere north of $600,000 when she bought it in the 1970s. Cash out now, Van A-Hole.

Classy move when your 93-year-old wife just lost her leg.
