MANILA, Philippines – Controversial noontime TV host Willie Revillame surprised everyone when he agreed to an exclusive recorded interview on TV5′s Paparazzi that aired last Sunday, May 17.
According to an article found in PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) Willie has been on an indefinite leave from his noontime show in ABS-CBN, Wowowee, for more or less two weeks now. The TV host’s decision to take an indefinite leave was caused by Jobert Sucaldito’s negative comments about the previous batch of contestants in one of the Wowowee segments.
In the TV5 interview, the host admitted that he has not made a decision yet if he will indeed return to Wowowee. “Pinag-aaralan ko lahat, pinag-iisipan ko lahat. Kumbaga, kinakausap ko rin sarili ko. Dapat kausapin mo rin. Ano ba ang gusto mong gawin? Ano pa ba ang gusto mong gawin sa buhay mo?” said Willie.
It can also be recalled that during the last sortie of presidential aspirant Manny Villar, Willie was quoted saying: “Natatakot akong mawalan ng trabaho? Pag magaling ka, may bilib ka sa sarili mo, at mabuti kang tao, ‘wag kang matakot. May kukuha sa ‘yo. Ba’t ako matatakot? Isa lang ba ang channel?”
After his given statements and interview with Paparazzi, many others have started speculating that Willie might be, by any chance, moving to TV5.
