Kapatid wishes Willie well


Willie Revillame

Tuesday afternoon, “Wowowillie” host-producer Willie Revillame announced his retirement from the noontime show in mid-October this year due to “personal” reasons.

Few hours after, TV5 issued this statement: “We respect [his] decision [and] wish him well in his new pursuits.”

All these came about following rumors that TV5 was not renewing Revillame’s contract or that of Will Productions.

Revillame said it was his request, because he needed a long vacation. Jodee Agoncillo

        Sayang yung matataas na posisyon sa Government, nakukuha lang ng mga artista, nawawalan ng chance yung mga taong may experience at talagang may pangarap sa bansa na pamahalaan ang kanilang bansa. kawawang bansa. dapat kasi di na pabotohin yung mga hindi tax payer. Sila kasi yung mahilig bumoto ng mga artista eh :(

  • Rafael Lagahit

    Revillame should not only be suspended, but outright booted out of all TV stations. He is a disgrace to show biz and to the country/

  • Sultan Kirat

    This is the third story you published on the non-renewal of his contract. Is he worth so many column inches? :))

    I remember the staff of Willie brandishing expensive clothes, bags and jewelries during the start of their stint in TV5. A number jumped ship from a promising career in Ch. 2 to TV5 due to higher compensation packages and a belief that Revillame will hit it big. However, fast forward to today, things look very bleak. The reason why wowowee was a hit before was due to the fact that the show was fun and was well managed by an invisible creative team. Wowowillie failed in that respect because Willie took over the management and creative reigns instead of staying as a talent. Apparently, Willie’s strenghts lies elsewhere.
