Did you know "Wheel of Fortune" was so weird? And erotic?
Original "Wheel" hostess Susan Stafford wrote a book called "Stop the Wheel, I Want to Get Off!"
Susan Stafford, who served as the original "Wheel of Fortune" hostess from 1975 to 1982, wrote a book discussing why she left the show entitled "Stop the Wheel, I Want to Get Off!" She and original host Chuck Woolery were both nominated for the Best Game Show Host Emmy in the '70s. Susan was a bad-ass cohost. When contestants chose letters that had already been guessed, she would often point to the letterboard condescendingly or shake her head in disapproval.
