Vanna knew that she was being famous after she was standing at the grocery store and looked at the cover of the Newsweek. She is happy that she made it this far. Vanna says though the show has changed and the format of hosting, but the half hour of the family show runs without any negative reviews. That’s a big achievement.

This time Vanna shares her thoughts on the cover of playboy. In an interview, Vanna revealed that she was low on money while posing for playboy. She did not want to ask money for her dad. She said,

“I was young and I wanted to do it on my own,” White says. “So, I did these lingerie shots and from the moment I said I would do them, I thought, ‘I shouldn’t be doing this, but I’m not going to ask my dad for money, so I’m just going to do it!'”


At that time, Vanna was snagging for the job and did not reach a high fame level. She was running out of money so she had to pose for playboy. She said,

“Never do anything you don’t want to do,” adds White. “Listen to your instincts and follow it. It was a great lesson to learn, but what can I say? I did something I shouldn’t have.”

Vanna regrets what she did. One of the questions Vanna is frequently asked is when is she going to retire from the show as she has done it for years and now she may want to rest. Well, she has not thought about retiring till now. After hearing Vanna’s statement we are sure that she will be on show for some more time.

“I’m sure I will one day,” she says. “But I’m enjoying my job so much. I don’t want to retire. I hope to continue doing it for as long as I can.”



Vanna did not know the pose was to be published in a mens magazine. She later went on Johnny Carson,s show to apologize publicly. She knew that was not something that she wanted.
