willie revillame apologizes for the wrong reason; takes a 3-week leave from wowowee

in this “apology” willie revillame cites the reason why he did not want the video feeds of cory aquino’s funeral shown during his show. in this video he said he did not want the merry making that happens in his show shown together with the grieving that we feel for cory’s funeral.

that was not what he said during the actual show during his rant. in his rant revillame kept repeating he was being bothered with seeing the funeral march and that was causing him not to perform his usual or his best during the show. cory’s funeral march was affecting his performance as a superstar noontime tv host.

 

Revillame goes on leave

By ARIS R. ILAGAN
August 10, 2009, 5:45pm

Controversial television host Willie Revillame has filed a three-week leave of absence from game show “Wowowee” believed to be triggered by mounting protests on his emotional outburst over the insertion of a live coverage of former President Corazon Aquino’s funeral procession in the high-rating ABS-CBN noontime show.

According to well-placed sources from ABS-CBN, Revillame’s leave of absence took effect during the live airing of “Wowowee” last Saturday, August 8, in ABS-CBN.

During Monday’s noontime showing of “Wowowee”, the 48-yearold Revillame was also a no-show amid the expression of support from some of his followers present in the studio who showed placards that said: “Willie, kasama mo kami (Willie, we are with you).

ABS-CBN has yet to issue a formal announcement over Revillame’s status on the high-rating “Wowowee” game show amid mounting calls for him to be suspended or removed for allegedly showing disrespect to the former president who was laid to rest last August 5 at the Manila Memorial
Park.

“Willie has gone on leave. He will be out for at least three weeks,” a well-placed source from ABS-CBN network said.

    napapansin kc namin para ng mayabang na tingin namin ky willie ngayong lately..masyado na syang hi-blood o magalitin sa show niya, kahit naka-live o nka on-air pa pinapagalitan nya mga staff sa wowowee. Sana naka off-air niya yun sinabi kung gus2 niya. Hindi nman sinisiraan namin c willie infact idol pa nga namin xa lalo na ung show nya na wowowee. Napapansin lng talaga namin parating mainit ang ulo niya ngayon..parang mayron siyang problema o di kaya nman wala siyang inspirasyon haha. Sana sa susunod dahan dahan nman siya sa mga pananalita niya kc hnd nya alam na nakakasakit na sya at may nasasaktan sya at pangit tignan sa public tv ang pagmumura nya o nagagalit sya sa mga staff niya. Sana magbago na sya at magsilbing lesson sa kanya ito mga nangyayaring ngayon..hindi na sana siya masyadong bossy na ugali sa tv kasi pangit talaga tignan.

      Ang tao kasi nakikita mo ang totoong character pag under stress. As the saying goes, It’s very hard to teach an old dog new tricks. Willie will never change…he has had many past opportunities to do so but up to now, his undesirable behaviours still creep in to haunt him. His daily presence on TV is still ABS-CBN’s responsibility. Wag na lang siguro panoorin kung pangit na asal ang ating nakikita.

    Kahit balik-baliktarin kabastusan o hindi pa rin maganda ang ginawa ni willie na e-cut un on-air kc marami ang nkapanood, sana kung gus2 nya sa off-air nya un ginawa. Sayang talaga sikat at maganda na sana ang wowowee at lalo pang sumisikat kaya lang nasisira kung minsan dahil sa ugali ni willie..,Sana magbalik ka na willie sa wowowee kc kahit papano nami-miss ka na rin ng mga fans mo..pero sana sa susunod baguhin u na ugali o style niyo na hindi maganda..un lang.

    oo nga.masyado na sobra si willie kung minsan…masyado siyang mayabang kasi feeling nya walang wowowee kung wla sya..hay naku..i always find time to watch the show pero to be honest, naiinis talaga ako minsan sa kanya lalo na pag nang-iinsulto sya ng mga contestant or staff…kung meron lang siguro maiipalit na matino sa kanya baka matagal na syang tinanggal sa show.

    Tanggalin na si willie! Ipalit si Randy at John Estrada! Masyadong mayabang yang si willie. Hindi kawalan ng ABS si willie, at hindi rin sya tatanggapin sa GMA7 kung sakaling lumipat sya. Daming asar sayo willie! Sobrang yabang mo na ngayon! Hindi mo rin nirespeto si tita Cory. Kung ikaw kaya yung namatay at ganun gawin sayo!

    Get lost willie, Randy and John Estrada kayo na lang ang pumalit please!!!

    Tell the loser to get lost for good. He can sail off on his 70M yacht and not come back. That’s a lot of money to make on the misery of other people like what happened at ULTRA.

      This messages is for you elizabeth. siguro dapat magsama kayo ni willie. for making a comments like that. bakit gaano mo siya kilala? you dont have to protect him, know why cause he doesn”t even know you. Alam mo dapat diyan sa bulok mong idol na si willie revillame ay tadtarin ng pinong-pino at ipakain sa mga aso. Taong katulad niya dapat mawala na sa mundo.

    • August 15, 2009 at 4:38 pm

      aside from the aquino family, the audience were offended by revillame. and based on reactions, it looks like revillame has not been successful in apologizing to the viewing public.

    He is not a good example for Filipino TV viewers worldwide! He shows the worst of our culture and gets away with it. Here are some examples: Pambabastos, Pangungutya, Kayabangan at Kahambugan, Pangloloko, Kamanyakan, Panginsulto, Pagmumura o pagsabi ng mga masamang salita at walang galang. If the Marcos children were able to show proper respect, why could Willie not do the same? The question is, dapat bang payagan ito ng ABS-CBN? If yes, they are as guilty for these sins and if not, they should just remove him and bring him back to reality! SOBRA NA, TAMA NA, PALITAN NA!

      i somehow agree with you.. children will think it is absolutely right to act that way and to emulate his example. children not properly guided will think na it is ok na manghiya ng tao, it is ok na maghamon sa harap ng madaming tao,ok ang manigaw ng iba. imagine if this is your child and will say, unless you do this and that, i wont eat , i wont attend school, i will leave this house, and worst if this is done right in front of your friends and relatives, say me party sa bahay nyo and nag tantrum ng ganito ang anak mo….ano kya ang pakiramdam. keya nga di ba sabi, kung papagalitan mo ang anak mo e dapat wag sa harap ng ibang tao? lets say syota mo, dahl sa galit na sya, sa bus stop o sa restaurant, umasta ng ganun at sa public place like that sasabihin sa iyo, pag hindi mo pinaalis ang si ganito o si ganun sa bahay nyo e break na kayo?
      i hope given another chance, he will see his fault and truly bbe humble this time,

      first of all, i think the people here and as a whole, is not as you say naninira,
      i believe what mr. revillame is doing is what will destroy him. we always say na the filipino as a people is first and foremost mapagpakumbaba. lahat tyo we admire humility . if you think what he did is not arrogance, i do not know what is ? i agree, that the radio commentator mr. sucaldito have no right to say what he said about wowowee on students who have grades of 75 and below. that i agree because it is a a comment in bad taste. anybody can and is entitled and have the right to go , watch and join the show. however tha manner of response in somehow
      out of bounce. there is a way to do things, imagine yourself reacting this way in the office. unless oyu want all your office mates to hear and to know and then will tell your boss within hearing distance of all the people in the office that its either you remove him or i will resign, now, what do you think will the people in the office do? or lets say, you complain thru email but the complain are all CC to all the people in the office? do you think people wi
      like it? or one fine example is yung designer na nagpaluhod sa empleyado ng duty free, think about it? di ba meron tayong subject na god manner and right conduct? as i said, being passionate is different from power trip….. pra yang yung manok na nangingitlog ng ginto na binibigyan kana ng ginto e sasakalin mo pa…..time will come, yung manok mapapagod na aalis na lang yan… para dimo na makita….

    First of all, ang taong gustong tumulong hindi humihingi ng anumang kapalit. Willie always say, ” itong show na to ( wowowee) ay para sa mahihirap.” Para makatulong sa mahihirap. Walang masamang tumulong in fact napakasarap ng feeling kapag nakakatulong ka sa kapwa. Pero I just want to let you know Willie Revillame that you are not helping people but instead you are using them for your own benefit. Itanong mo sa sarili mo when you’re alone and Im sure alam mo ang sagot and I dont need to know kung ano man ang sagot na yun ok? What you do is you are humiliating the poor people, making fun of them for your own good. Yes, you are giving them money ( not your own money though) but in return, kailangan mo silang tratuhin na parang mga alipin mo. Now, kung hindi sila susunod sa mga gusto mo, hindi mo na sila bibigyan ng pera. And you call that helping? I was watching you one time just because I just wanted to see the real you. You were telling one of the contestants that you will not give him same amount of money you gave to the other contestant because the other one was made you laugh more than he did? So you are using these poor people for your own self satisfaction? Bottom line Willie is, you are nothing but a stupid, dumb, illiterate, arrogant, boastful, loser, user, and selfish piece of sh*t! Kaya sana naman, dont show your face anymore anywhere. Not only on tv shows, but anywhere kasi you are so disgusting and you make me throw up everytime I see you and hear you say you are just helping the poor filipinos and you are just doing the show wowowee to help them. You know what, I feel bad for all the poor filipinos because they dont have a choice. They have to like you, come to your show, letting you insult them, doing everything you want them to do all because of money. I dont blame them though. I would probably do the same thing if I have 5 kids to feed and dont have a job to support them. I’d probably go to your show and join the contest myself. But you know what Willie? I will never ever let you humiliate me nor disrespect me in front of millions of people watching. And that is the one I want people to understand especially the poor ones. Pwede kayong sumali sa mga shows para manalo, magbakasakali. Walang masama sa magbakasakali. Pero ang hayaan niyo ang isang tao na (I’m sure na mas bobo pa sa inyo, mas stupido pa sa inyo na ang kaibahan lang ay mas maraming pera sa inyo), laitin kayo sa harap ng milyon milyon na tao para lang sa pera ay hindi ko maintindihan. Sana lang sa mga taong mahihirap, na katulad ko, huwag natin hahayain na tayo ay lait laitin. pahiyain, apihin dahil dignity na lang ang pwede tayong magkaroon. Money, power, fame, lahat yan mawawala pero ang dignidad hanggang kamatayan dapat meron tayo. Ang taong totoong matulungin, kailanman hindi naghihintay ng kapalit!

    willie is correct. hindi nga naman appropriate sa isang noontime variety show na ang main purpose is to entertain tv viewers na may kasabay na pinapalabas na funeral ng isang tao sikat man o hindi. ang may kasalanan ay ang bobong crew ng show na sabay na pinalabas ang video ng funeral ng dating pangulo sa show ng wowowee. or I would say ang management ng ABS-CBN mismo. dapat meron special silang advisory sa mga shows na masasagasaan ng special coverage nila. This issue against willie shouldnt happen if only ABS-CBN did their duty to inform their subordinates. It was just a matter of simple COMMUNICATION AND COMMON SENSE.

    to willie,

    I admire you being straightforward and frank. Kung sinasabi ng iba na plastic ka, for me you’re not. You just did the right thing to warn ABS about their insesitivity to your issue against jobert sucaldito. Hindi maganda sa kumpanya na itolerate ang mga negative personal opinions ng isa nilang empleyado against their own show. Ano yun? I dont think ABS is paying an employee to say against one of their “highest earning show”? so ABS what’s your decision?

  22. errol
    May 9, 2010 at 10:50 pm

    but of course jobert has his own right of airing his opinions. pero kung nag-iisip siya dapat sinabi na lang niya ng direcho sa management ng ABS CBN yung mga nakikita niyang mali sa show ng wowowee afterall they all belong in one BIG roof. Di ba claim ng ABS-CBN lahat kayo “magkapamilya”? ABS-CBN totoo nga ba yang advocacy niyo? I doubt…..
