  • Willie Revillame apologized to ABS-CBN and the management accepted his gesture. This was the main point of ABS-CBN’s official statement, which was sent to PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) through the network’s Corporate Commu­nications head, Mr. Bong Osorio. According to statement, the meeting between the ABS-CBN management and Willie pushed through yesterday afternoon, May 24. It also stated, “Willie has real­ized his mistake and apologized to ABS-CBN management for his outburst on air in Wowowee on May 4, 2010, and his failure to re­port to work since May 5, 2010.”
    willierevillame (1)The Kapamilya network ac­cepted the TV host’s apology. The statement also underscored that “ABS-CBN and Willie agreed that he takes an indefinite break effec­tive immediately, but his contract obligations with ABS-CBN hold.” This means that Willie cannot work “for any person or entity in direct competition with ABS­CBN.”
    With regard to the future of Wowowee, Willie and the man­agement would still have to dis­cuss “what will be in the best in­terest of the viewing public.”
    Although the statement did not mention whether Willie would eventally return as host of Wowowee, PEP gathered from an ABS-CBN insider that the TV host’s leave will last for “three months,” and that he will return to the show “around August or September.”

    FLASHBACK.
    It will be recalled that on the May 4 live episode of Wowowee, Willie threatened to resign from Wowowee if the ABS­CBN management failed to kick out radio host and The Buzz seg­ment host Jobert Sucaldito from the network. The TV host claimed that Jobert had been hitting him and his show for a year.  On May 12, Willie sent a letter to the top executives of ABS-CBN asking them to “release” him as a talent of the network. The let­ter was first published in the Phil­ippine Star on May 21 and was posted by PEP on the same day.

    Willie has been out of the show since May 5, the day after he threatened to resign. He was temporarily replaced by action su­perstar Robin Padilla, who began hosting the show last May 8 and will stay until this Saturday, May 29. It has not been determined if Robin will be staying on the show while Willie is out. ABS-CBN STATEMENT. Here is the official statement of ABS­CBN on the meeting between the network executives and Willie Re­villame:
    “ABS-CBN management and Willie Revillame pushed through with their scheduled talk yester­day afternoon.
    “Willie has realized his mis­take and apologized to ABS-CBN management for his outburst on air in Wowowee on May 4, 2010, and his failure to report to work since May 5, 2010.
    “ABS-CBN management has accepted Willie’s apology.
    “ABS-CBN and Willie agreed that he takes an indefinite break effective immediately, but his contract obligations with ABS­CBN hold. This disallows him to perform similar work for any per­son or entity in direct competition with ABS-CBN.
    “At some point, ABS-CBN management and Willie will dis­cuss what will be in the best inter­est of the viewing public.
    “Meanwhile, Wowowee will continue to provide entertain­ment and inspiration to Filipinos worldwide.”
