A damning article disputing one of Lisa Wilkinson ’ s most significant claims about her time on Today has allegedly sent publishers of her memoir ‘It Wasn’t Meant To Be Like This’ into a major spin. But it seems the contrary claims about Wilkinson ’ s original Nine contract did not go down well with her book publishers, with one insider claiming news.com.au were ordered to return the company’s only preview copy of the tell-all tome. ‘They blew up and asked for their copy back,’ said an insider at the site.

What's more, a limited copy of the book signed by Wilkinson herself is available to pre-order from Big W for the very reasonable price of just $24.

While this hasn't been labelled as 'reduced', it's still 46 per cent off the RRP.

Daily Mail Australia understands the price drop is not related to recent media reports challenging claims made in the book.

Discounts like this are a common marketing strategy by booksellers to boost sales.

Karl Stefanovic 'lobbied for Lisa Wilkinson to get her gig on Today'

  Karl Stefanovic 'lobbied for Lisa Wilkinson to get her gig on Today' A new twist has emerged in the ongoing feud between Lisa Wilkinson and Karl Stefanovic, less than two weeks before her explosive tell-all memoir is set to be released. On Wednesday, entertainment journalist Peter Ford claimed on 6PR Breakfast it was Stefanovic who initially 'lobbied for' Wilkinson, 61, to get her job on the Today show in 2006, while knowing 'full well that she'd be earning more money than him'.

Lisa Wilkinson (pictured) has urged controversial feminist Germaine Greer to stay silent about her opinions on rape after she described the act as nothing more than 'bad sex'. Ms Wilkinson highlighted how her former idol had 'changed the game' for many women, including herself, who grew up in the 'deeply macho western suburbs of 1970 s Sydney'.

'The Dymocks price for Lisa's book is $35 and this has always been the case. Different booksellers sell all books they stock for different prices and this is totally dependent on their individual business model.'

The representative also noted that Sonny Bill Williams' memoir is also selling for $35 rather than its $50 RRP.

'This is nothing out of the ordinary and applies across the board with Dymocks, regardless of the book,' they added.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Dymocks for further comment.

A number of Wilkinson's claims in her upcoming memoir have been questioned in recent days, including a chapter dedicated to her exit from Nine and falling out with former Today co-host Karl Stefanovic over a pay dispute.

Lisa Wilkinson's huge six-figure advance for her tell-all is revealed

  Lisa Wilkinson's huge six-figure advance for her tell-all is revealed Lisa Wilkinson's tell-all memoir is causing plenty of waves - even before it's released.And now the huge advance that the TV anchor, 61, was paid for writing her autobiography, It Wasn't Meant To Be Like This, can finally be revealed.

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 .

Wilkinson went on to claim in her book she was 'quietly fuming' because 'nearly every interview that day was being done by Karl alone'. This isn't the first time key facts in Wilkinson ' s autobiography have been disputed. This damning article - which challenges Wilkinson ' s most significant claim about her exit from the Today show - reportedly sent the book 's publisher into a major spin. Harper Collins Australia demanded a preview copy of the memoir be returned by the news website following publication of the story, sources told Daily Mail Australia.

But she claims he ended up ditching this idea and instead played rival networks Nine and Seven off against each other in order to secure a better deal for himself.

'Weeks later... the media became awash with stories that Stefanovic was restless at Today and looking for greener pastures – and more civilised working hours – at Channel Seven,' she wrote.

Stefanovic was soon at the centre of a bidding war between Nine and Seven that resulted in him re-signing a five-year deal with Nine worth at least $2million per year.

Wilkinson's deal was worth significantly less, about $780,000 a year, and was only for two years.

'There was no doubt about it: Karl certainly knew the art of the deal,' she wrote, adding that the resulting pay disparity between them 'was so off the charts that no-one would have believed it'.

Lisa Wilkinson's book 'fails to mention' $500k deal with vitamin brand

  Lisa Wilkinson's book 'fails to mention' $500k deal with vitamin brand Wilkinson's deal with Vitaco was problematic for Nine because it meant the station 'did not have full access to her for a range of duties', reports The AustralianTwo months before her exit, the former Today show host, 61, signed a separate $500,000 contract with vitamin company Vitaco that caused a major headache for the network.

However, Lisa's book also allegedly doesn't tell the full story, with News.com.au reporting this week Wilkinson had in fact earned more than Stefanovic for years when they first joined forces on Today, and it was only at the end of their partnership that the roles reversed.

On Tuesday, an article written by respected political journalist Samantha Maiden reported that when Karl first signed up to the breakfast show in 2006, he was on half of Lisa's pay packet, which was a reported $700,000.

'When they were first on the show, she was paid a lot more than he was,' an alleged Nine insider told the publication.

'Then, he was able to wedge a fee increase because Seven made him a big offer. If Nine wanted to keep him, they had to pay him, which is what happened.

'If you look at what he's paid now, it's probably not too dissimilar to what she was offered. So, you know, you can take things in a point of time, but I don't think there would have been much difference between the two now.'

Lisa Wilkinson's autography is set to become a Netflix limited series

  Lisa Wilkinson's autography is set to become a Netflix limited series Lisa Wilkinson's autobiography 'It Wasn't Meant To Be Like This' could soon be turned into a Netflix series. According to New Idea magazine, there is speculation that either Netflix or Ten are interested in turning it into a limited series.'It's exactly the sort of story that Netflix would want to turn into something,' a source told the magazine. © Provided by Daily Mail ( The report explained that the character of Leslie Carpenter in the ABC series Paper Giants is said to be based on Lisa's magazine career.

This damning article - which challenges Wilkinson's most significant claim about her exit from the Today show - reportedly sent the book's publisher into a major spin.

Harper Collins Australia demanded a preview copy of the memoir be returned by the news website following publication of the story, sources told Daily Mail Australia.

'They blew up and asked for their copy back,' said an insider at the website.

News.com.au editor Lisa Muxworthy declined to comment when contacted by Daily Mail Australia. A spokesperson for Harper Collins declined to confirm the allegation.

Wilkinson also lifted the lid on her final days working at the Today show in an excerpt from her new book, published in The Sunday Telegraph.

She claimed Stefanovic had given her the cold shoulder in the weeks prior to her sacking, which was prompted when she asked for a significant pay rise.

She alleged she and husband Pete FitzSimons had invited Stefanovic and his partner, Jasmine Yarbrough, to attend their 25th anniversary vow renewal ceremony in October 2017.

Two days before the event, however, Stefanovic supposedly contacted FitzSimons to say they wouldn't be attending because they'd extended their overseas holiday.

'In the ten days since [the ceremony] Karl hadn't contacted me, his co-host of almost eleven years, at all. No phone message, no text, no apology, not even a simple congrats. Just complete silence,' Wilkinson alleged.

'For the next two hours, I exchanged not a single word with Karl outside of what was scripted – because for the first time, I just didn't trust myself to "play nice",' she said.

However, her recollection of her last show has been also disputed, with resurfaced footage showing Stefanovic had in fact said to her: 'It's a big welcome back to Lisa. Nice to see you again. How was your honeymoon?'

Wilkinson went on to claim in her book she was 'quietly fuming' because 'nearly every interview that day was being done by Karl alone'.

'For two hours, I sat there feeling completely useless. The Today Show was now The Karl Show. What was the point of me even being there?' she said.

Upon learning she had been sacked later that day, Wilkinson wondered: 'Was this why [Karl] didn't attend the wedding and hadn’t spoken to me since? Was this why he never said a word about the show’s strange rundown that morning?'
