Leggy letter-turner Vanna White won’t be strutting down the aisle anytime soon with longtime love John Donaldson — because she said, “I don’t!”
Reports that the Wheel of Fortune star, 62, will be tying the knot with her real estate developer boyfriend of six years were extremely premature, according to the blond beauty’s 94-year-old dad!
“She’s tried marriage — and it didn’t work!” her father, Herbert White, exclusively revealed to The National ENQUIRER.
“She’s happy with who she’s with and the way things are. I would say they’re smart to leave it alone!”
In the past, Vanna’s love life was repeatedly rocked by heartbreaking tragedies and scandalous rumors. Shortly after moving to L.A. to launch her career, sources said she was involved in an abusive relationship with Casey Ortez, who committed suicide at age 31 in 1982.
Then four years later, beloved fiancé John Gibson died in a plane crash.
The game show hostess’ only marriage, to George Santo Pietro, gave her two children — Nikko, 25, and Gigi, 22 — but it ended in divorce in 2002 amid talk he cheated on her!
Banker Michael Kaye proposed to Vanna in 2004 — but the couple called off the wedding just two years later.
“She’s had bad luck with men, to say the least,” said another source.
But insiders said the star, who did not respond to our request for comment, has also gambled on love with ladies!
Former Hollywood party girl Liza Greer claimed she had a steamy tryst with the TV diva after meeting Vanna and John Gibson at a Playboy Mansion shindig in the ’80s!
“If you partied at the Playboy Mansion, that’s what you did,” explained Liza.
“[Vanna] was known for it. Her fiancé was known for it. I had sex with her, obviously. It was pretty wild.”
Though Vanna’s history is well known to Donaldson, he was still desperate to get his gal to the altar. But insiders claimed Vanna hit the brakes!
“She loves what she has with John and doesn’t want to heap too much pressure on the situation by pushing for anything formal,” an insider dished.
“Her official stance is: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!”
