Vanna White Net Worth $45 Million
Vanna Marie Angel was raised in South Carolina, and didn’t enter the entertainment industry until the early 1980s, in a game show entitled “The Price Is Right”, in which she competed with three other contestants. Even though White did not win the main prize, her appearance gained her a position as a hostess on “Wheel of Fortune” when Susan Stafford left the show. When Vanna White’s popularity rose, she started to feature in other television projects as well. In 1988, White made an appearance in the fantasy film called “Goddess of Love”, alongside David Naughton, Amanda Bearse and David Leisure. However, the movie received largely negative reviews, while some of the critics even deemed White’s acting as “bad”. This did not prevent White from making future on-screen appearances, as she starred in “Simon and Simon”, a sitcom starring Bob Saget, John Stamos, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, another entitled “Full House”, the legal drama series “L.A. Law” and a situational comedy “227”.
However, “Wheel of Fortune” has been Vanna’s bank – the show debuted in 1975 hosted by Susan Stafford and Chuck Woolery, but in 1982 they were replaced by Pat Sajak and Vanna White, who have been hosting the show ever since. Considered to be the longest-running game show, it has aired more than 6,000 episodes, obviously remaining popular with audiences, and inspiring more than 60 international adaptations worldwide. The show also inspired the release of several “Wheel of Fortune” boards, as well as video games.
Even though Vanna White is best known as a hostess of the popular game show, she has also been making appearances on other television projects, including “The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!”, “Naked Gun: The Final Insult” with Leslie Nielsen, Priscilla Presley, George Kennedy and O. J. Simpson, “Graduation Day” and “Married… with Children” starring Ed O’Neill, Katey Sagal, Christina Applegate and David Faustino, so adding more to her net worth.
In addition, Vanna White has released an autobiographical book entitled “Vanna Speaks!”, which made it to the list of best-sellers, and was featured in an issue of “Playboy” magazine.
In her personal life, White married George Santo Pietro, a restaurant owner in 1990, and they had a son and a daughter before divorcing in 2002. She was subsequently engaged to businessman Michael Kaye, but since 2012 has been in a relationship with John Donaldson.
