Who is Sherrill Sajak?

Sherrill James Sajdak was born in 1945 – specific date unknown – in the USA, and gained popularity through of her marriage to television presenter Pat Sajak; the show “Wheel of Fortune” brought him immense popularity across the US. Sherrill is one of the women who does not like exposing herself to the media, regardless of their partner being a public figure. She keeps her private life to herself, and has never talked about her career. Moreover, nothing is known about her education or family; a rather mysterious woman.


Sherrill met Pat in Nashville, Tennessee, and they dated for less than a year before they decided to marry, which was in a small ceremony in 1979, only in the presence of their family and loved ones. What very few people know is that this was not her first marriage, but their marriage turned out to be idyllic, and they became inseparable so nobody could ever suspect that something was not working as it should.

However, after seven years of marriage, the couple divorced, actually separating in 1985, and the divorce was formally completed in 1986. Neither of them said publicly what the reasons were for the divorce, but despite all appearances to the contrary, allegedly they did not spend enough time together.

Nevertheless, Pat did not waste much time, and in 1989 he married another woman, Lesley Brown. Conversely, Sherrill did not marry again, and there has been no information that she has had a boyfriend since the divorce. She is now 73 years old and is still single, so it’s assumed that she will remain so, since it seems unlikely that she will find another life partner now.


While Sherrill and Pat were married, they raised her son from her first marriage. They did not have children together. However, in his next marriage, Pat had two children, a son named Patrick Michael James Sajak born on 22 September 1990, and a daughter Maggie Marie Sajak, born on 5 January 1995. His daughter, Maggie, followed partly in her father’s footsteps, now a country singer who has recorded three songs so far, having apparently fallen in love with music when she was 13 years old. She played the guitar in her grandmother’s house, and then got her own guitar for her birthday. She recorded the first song, “First Kiss” in 2011, and sang it in her father’s show. She has two more songs called “Wild Boy” and “If I Was Gonna Go”, however, it can be said that music for her is a hobby, as her dream is to become a doctor. She is studying at Princeton University, and then plans to go to medical school.

Is Pat’s second marriage over?

Pat married his second wife, Lesly Brown, on the New Year’s Eve in 1989; they lived in Severna  Park, Maryland, and then in Los Angeles, California. Although these two always seem happy, rumors have circulated that Pat is unfaithful to his wife, and has cheated on her with his colleague, Vanna White, but two of them denied that with the explanation that they have a brother-sister relationship. This is not the only controversy to which he was tied. In 2014, he published a tweet in which he is proclaimed his heterosexuality! This surprised people because mostly they ‘outing’ is as a gay or a lesbian. Did this mean that he did not respect gay rights? Given that he later said that neither of his wives knew about his heterosexuality, we assume that he said this as a joke.

Sherril Sajak net-worth

Given that this woman keeps her private life secret, she cannot even be expected to publicly reveal her net-worth. One thing is certain – while she and Pat were married, they lived in luxury in 1911 Craftsman house. After the divorce and renovation – although it retained its antique look – the house was sold for $700,000. In the 2600 square feet house, there were three bathrooms, four bedrooms and a large number of auxiliary rooms. Considering all of this, it is certain that Sherrill received a great amount of money after divorce from her husband. So authoritative sources estimate that Sherrill’s net worth is still well over $1 million, as of late 2018.
