Pat Sajak Offers Tearful Condolences to Gay Partner of His Stylist


A tearful Pat Sajak took the opportunity on Wheel of Fortune to offer a tribute following the death of Alan Mills, a Wheel employee in charge of Sajak's wardrobe.

Said Sajak (begins at 2:23): "Between the time that we taped this show and we aired it tonight, we lost our dear friend Alan Mills. Alan officially took care of my wardrobe on the show, unofficially took care of all of us. He was the kindest, gentlest soul you'd ever want to meet. To his family, to his circle of friends, to the love of his life, Ivan, our sympathies. We're very sad here. Good-bye Alan. We love you."

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...
