Karl Stefanovic has rubbished a report claiming he’s plotting a ‘revenge memoir’ as his former Today show co-host Lisa Wilkinson prepares to release a tell-all book.
Lisa, 61, is expected to address her sometimes icy relationship with Karl, 47, in her upcoming autobiography, It Wasn’t Meant to Be Like This, including the events leading up to her exit from Nine in 2017 over a reported gender pay gap dispute.
After Woman’s Day reported on Monday that Karl was planning to write his own book if Lisa paints him as a villain in her memoir, the TV presenter told The Kyle and Jackie O Show this couldn’t be further from the truth.

‘I’ll never write a book because I’m too bloody lazy!’ the Nine personality told radio hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson when asked about the rumours.
Hours earlier, Woman’s Day had published a report claiming Karl had re-signed with his former manager Sharon Finnigan and was ‘in talks’ to secure a book deal with Hachette.
‘He will go warts and all if Lisa’s book is as racy as everyone is expecting and he’s ready with a back-up plan, and with Sharon in his corner, he’s giving himself his best chance,’ a source told the magazine.

It follows reports Lisa is ‘worried’ about how Karl might react to his portrayal in her upcoming autobiography, It Wasn’t Meant to Be Like This.
She has told friends she’s ‘concerned’ about how Karl will view the memoir, with suggestions he may not like how he is depicted, according to The Australian.
Lisa knows that Karl is a big part of the story and that he will be a drawcard for the book,’ one source told the newspaper.

‘She has also agonised over how he is portrayed, because he’s a complex character to get down in writing.’
Lisa apparently told friends the book had left her feeling ‘stressed’ and that she was worried about the media focusing on her chapters about Karl.
It is understood that ‘no juicy detail will be off limits’ in the Harper Collins autobiography, which will also reportedly include her marriage to Peter FitzSimons.
