Pat Sajak: Vanna White and I were drunk on "Wheel of Fortune"
Reuters – Thu, Jan 26, 2012 7:50 PM EST

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - "Wheel of Fortune" host Pat Sajak has said in a broadcast interview that he and fellow host Vanna White were drunk when they taped some early episodes of the show, but that he is too old for that now.

**SNIP**

Sajak explained that during the production of those "Wheel of Fortune" shows, he and co-host Vanna White would take two and a half-hour breaks while prizes were loaded onto the set in Burbank, California. So, they would go to a nearby restaurant and have "great margaritas," he said.

"Vanna and I would go across and have two or three or six (margaritas), and then come and do the last shows and have trouble recognizing the alphabet," Sajak said on the program.

Hey she is HOT! And he was funny!

Didn’t he run for office once, or something?

My buddy delivered a pizza to her, once, when she was in bed in LA —went right into their bedroom.

Didn’t her hubby die of something terrible?

GREAT PHOTO...!!!

My sister claimed to have lived with Vanna's brother for a couple of years, but, I doubt it because she never was able to produce any article of clothing attributable to Vanna.

You’d almost have to be drunk to do that show.

They filmed some shows on the USS Eisenhower back 'round '95 or so. Saw Vanna on the pier, nice looking enough. Girl had some skinny legs though.

Those were the days. You had to catch my boss in the morning because he was a fan of the "three martini lunch".

Beer was kept in the company refrigerator and he would have a couple in the afternoon. Friday was a total write-off.

How the company stayed in business I will never know.

I knew there was another reason I liked Pat besides his conservativism.

I like how Sajak mentioned he had trouble with the alphabet when drunk. I guess it helps validate the police test.

I am probably the only man alive, to have read her autobiography.

I wanted to learn why the media hated her so much, and it turned out to be just as I thought, she is nice.

I think I was drunk when I watched it because I hardly remember it. I once did a business transaction for one of her ex boyfriends who said she used him like a rented mule.

One of my neighbors here in Hollywood once worked for Sajak in Studio City and he’s a Vietnam vet like he was. He’s pro-America as they come, and would always treat his staff like they were family. Usually, producers would treat their staff like Democrats treat Christians but Sajak was known to treat his employees once a month to a nearby resto to unwind.

Oh yeah, she saw Vanna White without make-up during late 90’s and she was drop-dead gorgeous even w/o make-up.

Vanna could hurt me and I wouldn't even report it.
