The TV star and journalist kept things casual in a pair of faded blue jeans, and a black turtle neck top and a thick jacket on top. 

She teamed the look with white sneakers and had a face mask handy amid the coronavirus pandemic and Delta variant outbreak in Sydney.

Lisa refreshingly ditched the face paint and wore a chic pair of black glasses on the outing.

Lisa has promised to ‘leave no stone unturned’ in her upcoming tell-all memoir, It Wasn’t Meant to Be Like This.  

And The Project host’s former colleagues at Channel Nine are now reportedly bracing for impact, amid fears her book will air the network’s dirty laundry.

‘There are a lot of nervous nellies at Nine at the moment. She’ll be sure to go hard on the Nine lads’ club and, of course, her pay dispute,’ an insider told Woman’s Day last month.

‘Some are already arming themselves with their own spin doctors ready to put out the flames,’ the source claimed.  

Another source told New Idea: ‘[Lisa is] not the type of person who is going to sugar-coat anything. There’s a few nervous faces out there, let me tell you – nobody is safe.’ 

Nine has been accused of running a ‘boys’ club’ of male executives for years, with Mamamia founder Mia Freedman – a former senior employee at Nine – describing the workplace culture as ‘so toxic and so bad for women that it was the most distressing career experience of my life’.

Nine declined to comment. 

Will she spill the beans? Fans are also no doubt hoping Lisa's book will address her controversial exit from Nine in 2017, after a decade hosting the Today show alongside Karl Stefanovic. Lisa quit Today amid a reported pay parity dispute with Nine

Fans are also no doubt hoping Lisa’s book will address her controversial exit from Nine in 2017, after a decade hosting the Today show alongside Karl Stefanovic.

Lisa quit Today amid a reported pay parity dispute with Nine.

She was reportedly unhappy that her Today co-host Karl Stefanovic was earning more than $2million, whereas she was on a $1.1million-per-year contract. 

The network was supposedly only willing to increase her salary to $1.8million, but she demanded pay parity.

When Nine wouldn’t budge, she quit and jumped ship to Channel 10.

Since joining 10 to host The Sunday Project in 2018, Lisa has landed sit-down interviews with the likes of Kim Kardashian, Kylie Minogue and Bradley Cooper.

It Wasn’t Meant to Be Like This will be published by Harper Collins on October 27, and is available for pre-order at Big W and Booktopia for $27.
