MANILA, Philippines – Controversial “Wowowee” host Willie Revillame has appealed to his supporters for understanding as he continues to contemplate his next move in terms of his career in show business.
Revillame, who made the “I’ll quit” threat on his show, admitted that he is still thinking whether to continue hosting “Wowowee.”
Revillame promised that the public will know his decision.
“Basta ako malalaman naman ng lahat kung ano ang magiging desisyon ko. Siyempre may takdang panahon para diyan. At kung malaman nila ‘yon sana maintidihan nila ako kung ito pa ang gusto kong gawin o hindi na,” he told TV5’s new celebrity show, “Paparazzi.”
He added: “Sana maintindihan nila ako dahil may pinagdadaanan ako ngayon. Meron din akong dapat na gawing desisyon sa buhay ko. Pinag-aaralan ko lahat. Pinag-iisipin ko lahat. Kung baga kinakausap ko ang sarili ko. Kung baga ano bang dapat kong gawin, ano pa bang gusto kong gawin sa buhay ko.”
It was Revillame’s first television interview after taking a leave of absence from “Wowowee.”
“Hindi ko nami-miss ang programa. Nami-miss ko ang tao,” he said.
During the interview, Revillame refused to discuss his public tiff with Jobert Sucaldito. He also vowed not to get affected by constants criticisms thrown at him.
“Tapos na yan. Wala naman akong galit kahit kanino…. Ngayon iba na ang pananaw ko sa buhay. Kung gusto ninyo akong sabihan ng hindi maganda, hindi ko na kayo papansinin… … lahat ng tumitira sa akin sa Twitter hindi ako concerned doon. Tsaka hindi ko pinapansin ‘yon kahit tirahin nila ako araw-araw,” he said.
Revillame said he would instead focus on helping his kababayans and making other people happy.
“Paparazzi” aired Revillame’s interview on Sunday amid speculations that he might transfer to network TV5.
TV5’s musical variety show, “PO5,” also paid tribute to Revillame by performing some of the controversial host’s songs.
