Pat Sajak And Vanna White Were Drunk During Some Episodes Of 'Wheel Of Fortune'

(getty images)

 Pat Sajak, the charismatic and long-time host of Wheel of Fortune, once confessed that he and the iconic letter-turner Vanna White had been, shall we say, a bit tipsy during some episodes of the beloved show. Back in the crazy 80s, Pat and Vanna would occasionally step out for a break during their long taping sessions. The duo would sneak away to a nearby Mexican restaurant for a little R&R, where they would partake in a couple of margaritas—sometimes more than a couple. The pair would then return to the set, their spirits lifted (literally and figuratively), and carry on with the show. Of course, these shenanigans didn't last forever. As Pat Sajak himself admitted, they eventually grew out of their boozy breaks, and the show continued its successful run, sober as a judge.

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. Now, if I were to inhale the cork and a bottle of wine I would probably keel over, I’m getting a little older for this.
