Savvy Confessions: My Co-Worker Is Sabotaging Me

This anonymous posting comes from our Savvy Confessions group, where all identities are kept anonymous.

I'm transitioning into a new position and my manager has asked another employee (someone I don't know) to help me out and adjust to the new role. Turns out, she's about to lose her job soon since our company is downsizing that department and she's been trying to take my position! Another superior, who is a good friend of mine, clued me into it. She doesn't do it in obvious ways, but she just says that I'm not prepared for the role and such and throws doubt in my direction. I actually felt sick when I heard about that because she's always so nice to me. Should I confront her before she totally sabotages me? Or should I bring this up with the manager?
