Former QVC host Lisa Robertson finally opened up about her experiences with multiple stalkers, which was one of the "list" of reasons she departed the network. Talking with Good Morning America's Robin Roberts, Robertson revealed that her first stalker appeared early on in her career and would continue throughout her time at QVC.
She started at the network in 1995 but would depart in December 2014.
Overwhelmed with fear, Robertson told the GMA host that she didn't know what to do with herself.
"I was really just kind of freaked out by the whole thing and didn't know how to handle it, so I would just lock myself in my house and go to work," she revealed.
Without revealing too much information or the identity's of her stalkers, Robertson said that one even showed up at her house multiple times. Eventually she would appear in court to testify against the stalker, which she described as "really scary."
Over time, however, she realized she couldn't sit idly while waiting for them to go away; she had to take action. "After leaving QVC and realizing that now it was up to me if something happened," she said. "Then I started to educate myself more and take more control of my destiny."
Even though she would "lock" herself into her house, she admitted to the talk show hostess that she never felt entirely safe inside her own walls, which is part of the reasons she regrets not taking action sooner.
"It was something that impacted me to a greater extent than I would have liked," she admitted before adding, "I don't think anyone should be afraid in their own home. That's not acceptable."
Already talking candidly, Robertson became even more honest after Roberts asked her what she learned about herself in the wake of her ordeal. "I have learned my way of dealing with things is to hide," she admitted.
"This is not productive," she added. "I am working on that."
