Inside Lisa Wilkinson and Sandra Sully’s ‘carpark feud’ as Channel Ten staff reveal they had to use traffic cones to reserve the veteran newsreader’s spot: ‘It’s started to put noses out of joint’

Lisa Wilkinson has been swept up in a tide of bad blood from within the ranks of TV veterans, past and present, after her controversial Logies speech last Sunday.

Amidst all the flak has reemerged an old rumour that Wilkinson, 62, got into a feud with Channel 10 newsreader Sandra Sully, 57, over a car space at the station’s Pyrmont studios in 2020. 

Ten security staff, ‘had placed a traffic cone in the spot to preserve it for Sully, apparently to no avail’ the The Sydney Morning Herald reported on Saturday,

The rumours of a car park feud were first reported by Woman’s Day in 2020, with the magazine claiming Wilkinson was ‘commandeering’ Sully’s parking space. 

‘It’s started to put noses out of joint because everyone loves Sandra, and I know she’s getting annoyed big time’ an alleged source told the magazine at the time.

‘It’s just a petty little issue, but it’s become hot gossip at Ten. It’s not like it’s even a prime car space’.

The allegation resurfaced after Sully liked a tweet from showbusiness reporter Peter Ford blasting Wilkinson’s speech, as reported by Daily Mail Australia on Wednesday.

That message said: ‘Such serious consequences from Lisa Wilkinson… if only she’d stuck to silly stories like the paparazzi who stalked her in Chapel St.’ 

In another tweet on Friday he referred to ‘past grievances like car park spaces etc’. 

Long-time 10 weather presenter Tim Bailey also ripped into Wilkinson in a brutal tweet on Tuesday, calling her a ‘big head’.

‘Hey Lisa, pull ya head in,’ Bailey said in a now-deleted message. ‘I know this might be difficult, because it is a very big head. But please try.’ 

He added: ‘#LisaWilkinson #Logies2022 #carparkthief’.

Sully refused to comment on the story when approached by the Sydney Morning Herald. 

Daily Mail has reached out to Channel Ten for additional comment.

Wilkinson has come under heavy fire after she mentioned alleged rape victim Brittany Higgins in a speech moments after winning the Outstanding News Coverage Logie award for her one-on-one interview with the former ministerial staffer in 2021.

The acceptance speech has forced the rape trial, which was due to start next week, to be rescheduled until October and could result in Wilkinson being charged with contempt of court. 

Wilkinson, meanwhile, has cancelled her appearances on The Project for the week as Network Ten threatens defamation action against other media outlets following the fallout of her controversial Logies speech.
