Lisa Wilkinson inundated with praise from celebrity friends and fans after debuting her new hairstyle – as she continues lengthy media hiatus: ‘You are so missed on TV’
Lisa Wilkinson debuted a flirty new hairdo on Saturday, and her friends and famous pals inundated her with support.
The television star, who has been scarce on social media in recent months, showed off the shorter bob in a photo posted to Instagram.
The 63-year-old took in a sunset at what appeared to be a beachy location in the selfie, which also flaunted her straightened, shorter hair.
‘Some days are diamonds…’ she wrote in the caption alongside the evocative photograph.
Lisa was quickly flooded with positive comments, with fellow television star Amanda Keller writing: ‘Love you’.

British celebrity chef Nigella Lawson chimed in, ‘And some people are Diamonds!’
The Bachelor star and radio host Laura Bryne agreed with Nigella, writing: ‘You’re the diamond’.
The Project host Michael Hing also added a sweet comment, writing: ‘Absolute legend’.
Psychic Donna Maree Richardson added: ‘Big love Lisa, yes we miss your heart authenticity and worldly experience on TV. Your gift to connect with humans and tell their story is a rarity’.
Fans were also gushing, with one writing: ‘You are a diamond Lisa. You are so missed on TV’.

‘Geez I miss you being on my screen,’ said another, while one more added, ‘Miss you seeing you on TV, hope you are well and all is going GREAT in your world!’
‘So happy for you! Hair looks lovely,’ someone else chimed in, with one more saying, ‘Nice haircut or style’.
The veteran reporter is currently on an extended media hiatus after exiting The Project, and is still figuring out what her next move with the network will be.
Despite no longer working, Wilkinson is still riding the Channel 10 gravy train.
The TV presenter, who hasn’t appeared on screens since her departure from The Project in November, is still collecting a ‘seven-figure salary’ from Ten thanks to the ‘watertight’ deal she signed in 2021, according to The Australian.

The question now remains as to how the 63-year-old will spend the remainder of her lucrative contract, which is said to extend beyond 2023.
It’s unclear where such a highly paid journalist would fit in 10’s schedule, however, as the station is mostly known for its reality TV content, not news and current affairs.
‘With Wilkinson unlikely to put her hand up for 10’s reality tentpoles like The Bachelor or jungle duty on I’m a Celebrity, her most likely next move is said to involve some form of interview special for 10,’ reports Media Diary.
Wilkinson signed a reported $1.7million-a-year deal with Ten in 2018, before inking another multi-year contract with the network in 2021.
The generous salary helped Wilkinson fund a dream lifestyle of high-end properties, fancy cars, luxury fashion and first-class trips overseas.
Wilkinson abruptly quit The Project in November after four years on the panel, citing ‘targeted toxicity’ from sections of the media as the reason for her exit.
