Zsa Zsa Gabor & Porfirio Rubirosa, 1954
"Following the war, Rubi was transferred to Italy by Trujillo. [His wife, Danielle] Darrieux, in between films, followed. The day after her arrival in Rome a journalist from Harper’s Bazaar went to their hotel suite to interview Darrieux. The reporter was Doris Duke, heiress to the $100 million American Tobacco fortune.
Rubi later remembered, “The three of us had breakfast, she [Duke] seemed lively, jovial, with that je ne sais quoi that American women can have. Little did I know that a few months later, I would be completely controlled by her. Until then, I had been happy with Danielle. But at this moment, things started to change.” Rubi’s polo-playing friend Gerard Bonnet says that Duke sent Rubi a telegram following their first encounter: “When you are finished with Danielle, call me, and I will come.” Rubi must have been encouraging, as Duke soon wrote again: “Arriving immediately.”
It is rumored that Duke—who was used to paying for beautiful things—gave Darrieux $1 million to bow out of her marriage to Rubi….Duke and Rubi were married at the Dominican Embassy in Paris on September 1, 1947, about a year after their first meeting. At nearly six feet, the bride was three inches taller than the groom. She wore a green Dior suit with matching velvet hat, and he a smoking jacket with charcoal-gray pin-striped trousers. “
