Recently, there has been talk about Wheel Of Fortune‘s new host, Ryan Seacrest, and veteran assistant, Vanna White, struggling during filming. While it is expected that anyone following in Pat Sajak’s footsteps will experience growing pains, this seems to be more. However, Vanna breaks her silence on the conflict rumors.

Growing Pains

Undeniably, Wheel Of Fortune is going through a huge transition. Reportedly, while Vanna White is expecting things to be a little rocky, there have been moments she questions if she should have retired with Pat Sajak. Since Pat’s leaving, it seems like there has been some division between the new host, Ryan Seacrest, and the longtime letter-turning queen, Vanna. Without a doubt, the growing pains of training a new host, after the tried and true work of having the same host for more than forty years, has to be grueling. However, Vanna sends a message as the rumors swirl about their behind-the-scenes beef.

Fans Aren’t Sure About Vanna White’s Statements

However, after Vanna White posted the photo, not everyone was convinced by her statement. Several Wheel Of Fortune fans left comments.

  • “There’s no f-in way Vanna can stand Ryan. He’s a massive phony.”
  • “I don’t think i can believe anything I read in the news anymore!!! Last week I read that they can’t stand each other, and she is thinking about retiring because she doesn’t like how Ryan does the show. They look happy here.”
  • “Very disappointed that Wheel of Fortune chose Ryan Sescrest as Pat’s replacement. There is plenty talent to choose from. Even an unknown would have been better.”
  • But one fan thinks Vanna White and Ryan Seacrest need to go. “I will not be watching wheel of Fortune ever again – I absolutely cannot stand fakey Ryan Seacrest, and it’s absolutely time for Vanna to retire.”
  • “I have a gut feeling that he will be unkind to Vanna and push her out. He’s sketchy.”
