TMZ, White got a “substantial pay increase” with the deal.Incoming “Wheel of Fortune” host Ryan Seacrest revealed last week that he hoped to work with her on the ABC show. “I love Vanna White,” Seacrest, 48, told Fortune Magazine. “I’ve known Vanna for a long time.

We sat in important places next to each other. And I hope for nothing more than to be able to walk out on that stage and host with her.”White — who makes $3 million a season — had reportedly been seeking a raise from the show’s producers, claiming that she only received bonuses for the last 18 years.She reportedly “lawyered up” and was asking for half of current host Pat Sajak’s $15 million a year salary.“After 41 years as a model employee and more the face of that show than [Pat], asking for 50% of what he makes seems like a no-brainer,” a source close to White told TMZ.The insider also claimed that Sony had been “very difficult” amid the discussions.

White’s sudden decision to lawyer up came after a source told the Daily Mail that she feared being let go from the series after Sajak’s upcoming exit.“The next year is going to be quite the ride and Vanna wants to be a part of it all even after he leaves, and she hopes they don’t force her out,” a source close to White told the outlet.The source later stated that White — despite being temporarily replaced — had no desire to leave the long-running show despite her initial contract ending in 2024.“Vanna doesn’t want to leave ‘Wheel of Fortune’ even after Pat’s announcement of retirement, and she would highly consider taking over his role as host on the show,” the anonymous source claimed.Appearing on “Good Morning America” on Monday, Seacrest enthusiastically told anchors Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos.
