Lisa Wilkinson is a household name and an all-round angel, but she’s just revealed that she had a secret enemy who has been trying to tear her down. 


Private Sydney reported that Lisa opened up about the unknown nemesis, at the Byron Bay Writer’s Festival last week, when she gave a talk with fellow journalist Tracey Spicer

Lisa was said to have revealed she had an ‘enemy’ in the past, who “embarked on a ruthless campaign to take her down.”

This isn’t the first time Lisa has touched on the incident, having spoken to Mamamia in the past, revealing, "My dad always taught me that if somebody new arrives, you always go and look after them, and make sure they're OK. 

"I did with this girl, but suddenly, after about a month, she just turned on me. Her boyfriend decided he liked me, although I had no idea who he was. 

"Bullies rarely have a very good reason for doing what they do. They pick on others to feel better about themselves."


Lisa issued a statement to the Private Sydney column, through Channel Nine, talking more about the claims that were made. 

"Like many women who've spent time in professional workplaces, I've come up against the occasional roadblock. It comes with the territory.

"But each time, I've shone a light on what was going on, called out the perpetrators, and the problem immediately went away. 

"It's the advice I always give to the young women I mentor – be brave – because it works.”


This shows us that no matter who is trying to tar us down, or what odds are working against us, there is hope for us to pull through and shine brighter than ever before!
