Where is Sherrill Sajak Now? Did She Marry After Her Divorce?
Ever since she split from Pat, Sherrill has been completely away from the media. There are no updates on whether she is married or even dating at present.
Not only this but there are no updates on her whereabouts at the moment. She is not on any social media platforms which makes it even harder to trace her life at present.
It looks like she is enjoying her life away from all the glitz and glamour. That said, we hope she makes a public appearance in the media soon enough, giving people insight into how her life is going nowadays.
How Much Is Her Net Worth?
Since Sajak has kept herself away from the media for a very long time, it is hard to pinpoint the amount of wealth she has. But considering the fact that her then-partner Pat was a rich individual back when they divorce, she must have received a decent share of his wealth.
As of 2022, Pat boasts a net worth of around $70 million.
