Two years after making her game show debut as a participant in The Price Is Right, Vanna, now 62, joined Wheel Of Fortune in 1982 as a hostess.
This year she told Fox news: & # 39; Believe it or not, Pat Sajak and I have had only one fight in 36 years and that was more than putting ketchup on a hot dog. & # 39;

While Pat prefers only mustard on his sausage, Vanna likes to combine that condiment with ketchup, resulting in their spit.
The icon of the Merv Griffin talk show created Wheel Of Fortune in 1975, with Chuck Woolery and Susan Stafford in the roles now occupied by Pat and Vanna.
Susan explained her departure from 1982 to the Chicago Tribune half a decade later: & # 39; I mean, I stood there for seven years and played letters. I had to wonder if that was a way for an adult woman to live her life. & # 39;

In 1986 she briefly joined Vanna after his fiancé John Gibson, who had been a Playgirl centerfold and Chippendale, died tragically in a plane crash.
Wheel Of Fortune made Vanna a small screen icon and her memoir Vanna Speaks from 1987! was a hit and earned a famous shout-out on The Golden Girls.
