Willie: Wowowillie to end in October

By OMG! Staff | Yahoo! Southeast Asia Newsroom – 12 hours ago


Controversial host Willie Revillame surprised Wowowillie's viewers when he announced that he's no longer renewing his contract with TV5.

"Ang last day of my contract ay October 15. Maybe October 12 will be the last show ng Wowowillie."

Because of undisclosed personal reasons, Willie will be taking a break from his showbiz commitments for a few months, a year, or even longer.

“So, hindi po para malungkot. Ganyan talaga ang buhay. Kasi kailangan ko rin ng time."

Willie also revealed that last May 17, through a letter, he has already informed TV5 management of his intent to retire after his contract ends.

"Yun lang po para matapos na ang haka-haka."

Meanwhile, TV5 released the following statement to Yahoo! Philippines OMG! and other members of the media.

"We respect the decision of Mr. Willie Revillame to retire upon the expiry of his contract with TV5. We wish him well in his new pursuits."

Just a few days ago, Wowowillie business unit head Jay Montelibano called rumors about a PHP 90 million contract demand "absurd" and that Willie is still in good terms with TV5 management.

TV5 confirms dropping Willie Revillame's show

Willie Revillame

MANILA -- Executives of TV5 have confirmed an earlier announcement of TV host Willie Revillame that his noontime program will go off-air in October after a six-month run.

During a recent press conference announcing the network's line-up of new programs, TV5 President Noel Lorenzana and Chief Entertainment Content Officer Wilma Galvante were asked as to what's ahead for Revillame's "Wowowillie."

Lorenzana confirmed that the show is indeed ending next month, as quoted by entertainment news site Yahoo! OMG in a report published Thursday.

He added that the TV host's contract will no longer be renewed. "If Willie comes back, it will be under new circumstances, a new format, and that's a big if," Lorenzana said.

Various iterations of Revillame's variety programs, dating back to "Wowowee" as it aired on ABS-CBN from 2005 to 2010, have been fraught with controversies.

The 2010 primetime program "Willing Willie," Revillame's first show on TV5, was accused of child abuse when a 6-year-old contestant was supposedly made to perform as a "macho dancer."

The controversy, which involved advertisers pulling out from the show, prompted Revillame to announce it would go on hiatus. A month later, it resumed as the reformatted "Wiltime Bigtime."

Yet another revamp as "Wowowillie" marked the program's transfer to a noontime slot in January this year. The show once again drew controversy, however, when Revillame went on an on-air tirade against co-host Ethel Booba for allegedly disrespecting him.

Dared by Revillame to resign from his show, Ethel Booba never returned as a co-host on "Wowowillie."

On the same program in May, Revillame announced his plans to retire, saying "Wowowillie" will air its last episode on October 12.

"Alam ninyo, may mga personal na rason na hindi ko na sasabihin sa inyo. Ako muna'y magpapahinga ng ilang buwan, ng isang taon o anuman...Tatapusin ko na lang po ang kontrata ko sa TV5," he said.

Kailangan pa ng sponsor eh bilyonaryo naman ang tatay: Meryll walang-walang pera, Willie Revillame walang paki sa pag-aaral sa London


Ni Salve Asis (Pilipino Star Ngayon) | Updated September 7, 2013 - 12:00am


MANILA, Philippines - “Walang-wala.”

‘Yan ang sabi ni Meryll Soriano sa isang interview dahil naubos ang kanyang mga kinita sa kanyang pag-aaral sa London. Kumukuha ng Product Design sa arts and design school na Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design sa London si Meryll.

Nakadalawang taon na raw siya sa nasabing kurso sa tulong ng sponsor at hoping siya na makakabalik siya sa London para ipagpatuloy ang kanyang pag-aaral. Nakabakasyon siya sa bansa ngayon. ‘Yan ay kung makakakuha raw siya ng sponsor.

Aminado ang actress na hindi raw siya suportado ng kanyang amang si Willie Revillame dahil hindi sila nagkakaintindihan.

Ang tanong ng fans : Asan na raw ang image ng TV host na pagiging matulungin sa mahihirap eh ‘yun palang sarili niyang anak ay kinakailangan pa ng sponsor para magkapag-aral sa London?

Bakit daw natitiis ng ama ang sariling anak samantalang sa ibang tao ay matulungin siya?

May sariling building, yate, jet, at maraming bahay at mga mamahaling sasakyan ang mga sinasabing kayaman ng TV host na tuloy ang pagreretiro ayon sa kanyang kampo pero hindi pala tinutustusan ang pag-aaral ng anak.

Kaya nga umaasa si Meryl ayon sa naturang interview na makakaipon or may magandang loob na tumulong para maituloy niya ang kinukuhang kurso.

Willie Revillame concedes to 'Showtime', 'Eat Bulaga'

MANILA -- Willie Revillame has admitted that the viewership of his noontime program aired on TV5 "fell below expectations," as the controversial host gears up for the show's last month on air and his planned retirement.

The 52-year-old TV host shared the ratings disappointment in a feature on Revillame's Wil Tower Mall published Wednesday on the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

Revillame spoke about "Wowowillie," which is aired in the same timeslot as ABS-CBN's "It's Showtime" and TAPE's "Eat Bulaga."

Referring to the hosts of the 34-year-old program aired on GMA-7, Revillame said, "No one can beat the rapport of Tito (Sotto), Vic (Sotto) and Joey (de Leon)."

"No matter how good your show is, if the signal is not strong, people won't watch you," the former ABS-CBN star added.

Whereas both "Eat Bulaga" and "It's Showtime" have consistently placed in the Top 20 programs nationwide, according to multinational market research group Kantar Media, "Wowowillie" has repeatedly lagged behind its rival shows by as much as 10 percentage points in national TV ratings.

The latest TV ratings data of Kantar Media released on Wednesday, for instance, shows that "Eat Bulaga" and "It's Showtime" garnered nationwide ratings of 16.3% and 13.7%, respectively, on September 9, while "Wowowillie" only registered 2.9% on the same day.

Kantar Media uses a nationwide panel size of 2,609 urban and rural homes, representing 100% of the total Philippine TV viewing population.

Show's end, retirement

"Wowowillie," which has undergone numerous revamps since its 2010 debut as "Willing Willie," is set to air its last episode on October 12, Revillame said.

He first announced the game show's end in May, saying he has opted not to renew his contract with the Manny Pangilinan-owned network.

"My life was about TV hosting and entertainment. When I talked to Sen. [Manuel] Villar (Revillame's business partner), my perspective changed. You have to be stable," said the TV host, who has four children from four past relationships.

"I thought of the future — not just for my family. I want to share my success with the less fortunate. All these (points to a table) will turn to dust. As long as I live, I want to do something that will make people happy. Life is about giving and forgiving. The world doesn't have to see," Revillame said.

Willie hopes to build 'bridge' with ABS-CBN

Posted at 09/16/2013 3:48 PM | Updated as of 09/16/2013 3:48 PM


TV host Willie Revillame

MANILA -- TV host Willie Revillame is hoping that the opening of his real estate project Wil Tower can act as a bridge for him to reconnect with his former network.

The mixed-use Wil Tower, which includes a residential tower and a mall, is located beside the ABS-CBN compound in Quezon City, Revillame's home for many years before moving to the No. 3 network TV5.

On Sunday night, ABS-CBN personalities including Noli de Castro and Korina Sanchez attended the opening of the mall, which Revillame acknowledged in an interview with the Philippine Daily Inquirer came from his earnings when he was still with the Kapamilya network.

Revillame once again thanked ABS-CBN as he revealed plans of building a "hanging bridge" which will connect ABS-CBN to the mall.

Also spotted in Sunday's event were Revillame's friends in showbiz, including Randy Santiago, John Estrada, Richard Gomez, Edgar Mortiz, Ruffa Gutierez and producer Lily Monteverde.

In the Inquirer interview, Revillame admitted that the viewership of his noontime program on TV5 "fell below expectations."

"Wowowillie," which has undergone numerous revamps since its 2010 debut as "Willing Willie," is set to air its last episode on October 12.

Revillame has said he will take a break after the show ends.

NO NEW SHOW TO REPLACE 'WOWOWILLIE' YET

NEW TV5 president Noel Lorenzana makes it clear that Willie Revillame’s “Wowowillie” is making an exit next month when its contract with them expires. Is it true it will be replaced by a new musical variety show led by Ogie Alcasid? “No, we’re not even sure yet what will replace it,” he says. “Let’s just see what happens next. We don’t know yet. As of now, we’re first strengthening our weekend programming and after that, our primetime programming. We have no plans yet for noontime or daytime programming. But we’re reviving ‘Face to Face’ to be hosted by Gelli de Belen and Tintin Bersola as Amy Perez no longer wants to do it.”

They’re happy that the new shows they introduced last weekend all got positive feedback: “Showbiz Police,”  “Tropa Mo Ko Unli,” “Killer Karaoke,” “What’s Up Doods” on Saturday, and the new “Pinoy Explorer,” “Who Wants to be a Millionaire,” “Wow Mali Na Naman” and “The Mega and The Songwriter” on Sunday. “We’re off to a good start with our Weekend Do It Better campaign and we hope magtuloy-tuloy ito to get better ratings as we definitely offer more exciting and more entertaining alternative programming on weekends,” adds Pres. Noel. “Aside from improving the content of our shows, we’re also investing to further improve our signal in various places.”

What now, Willie?

By Gerry Plaza | omg! Philippines News Blog – Wed, Sep 18, 2013 3:56 PM PHT


Willie Revillame (NPPA Images)

Everybody sees it as another setback for the always-controversial Willie Revillame.

But Willie, the irrefutable comeback king in entertainment, sees it differently.

After his announcement in May about his sabbatical from showbiz after TV5 decided not to renew his contract and scrap his noontime show, “Wowowillie,” Willie has seen it as an opportunity to try something new.

Indicating that he would not simply leave his showbiz earnings in mere time deposits or other financial instruments, Willie has announced investment ventures in tourism and property development in Tagaytay City, where he resides. In his initial sole venture, Willie has indicated he will embark on a resort hotel project that will include a 40-room five-star hotel and individual villas, which can occupy 30 people with amenities, such as private pools, across the complex.

Willie has also turned his $5-M private jet into a lucrative business enterprise, as he started renting out his aircraft to unnamed VIPs. This is his immediate source of income when “Wowowillie” goes off the air after October 12.

This is seen as a wise move, considering how the once-celebrated comedian and toast of television has realized how those series of controversies can take its toll on his showbiz career.

Now that TV5 has pulled the plug, he has literally nowhere to go, except of course, towards a new course in life.

Because such business ventures  require financial astuteness, brazen foresight, common sense and gazillions of cash, Willie definitely fits it to a “T”. However,  business success calls for  well-maintained relationships, most especially with subordinates, colleagues, partners and clients --  an area where Willie could struggle.  Since those controversies made a very huge dent not only on his flailing showbiz career but also on his public image, very big questions come to mind on whether his ever changing initiatives will bear fruit. Now that he is alone, without any of the Lopezes, the Manny Pangilinans behind him, will he create and sustain something successful?

Judging from his recent outings, it seems dim. Yet, Willie is Willie, who despite all the adversity finds a way to get a new lease in life.

And hopefully learns from it.

Willie Revillame in tears as show goes off air

Posted at 10/12/2013 10:18 PM | Updated as of 10/12/2013 10:18 PM


'Wowowillie' host Willie Revillame. File photo

MANILA -- TV host Willie Revillame turned emotional Saturday during the live telecast of "Wowowillie," as curtains closed for the controversy-fraught noontime program after seven months on air.

Speaking with the live audience, Revillame recalled the different iterations of his variety shows -- the primetime offerings "Willing Willie" and "Wiltime Bigtime" -- which preceded this latest revamp as "Wowowillie."

"Galing 'no? Dalawang programa na 'yan na nagbibigay ng saya, at ito 'yung panghuli, at ito 'yung magbababa-bye na ngayong araw na 'to," Revillame said.

Addressing the TV5 management, he continued, "Medyo mag-o-overtime. Nakikiusap lang ako, for the last chance, huling araw na ho namin. Huwag niyo muna kami putulin, para naman po 'yung samabayanan, makita nila 'yung pinagsamahan nating programa."

A montage of contestants' winning moments and Revillame's interaction with his fans was then shown. This included scenes dating back to his debut as a TV5 host.

The trouble with hosting

Revillame transferred to the Manny V. Pangilinan-owned network in 2010, after the controversial end of his five-year program with ABS-CBN, "Wowowee."

His first TV5 show, "Willing Willie," similarly drew controversies, among them involving allegations of child abuse when a 6-year-old contestant was supposedly made to perform as a "macho dancer."

The controversy, which involved advertisers pulling out from the show, prompted Revillame to announce it would go on hiatus. A month later, it resumed as the reformatted "Wiltime Bigtime."

Yet another revamp as "Wowowillie" marked the program's transfer to a noontime slot in January this year.

"Tatlong programa po na nagbigay talaga ng saya sa inyong lahat," Revillame said on Saturday. "I'll be honest with you. Hindi ako nagsisinungaling sa inyo, alam niyo pagkatao ko, nagkakamali ako, naggalit ako sa TV, lahat, dahil hindi po ako pwede maging hipokrito sa inyong lahat. Kung ano po 'yung pagkatao ko, pinapakita ko."

"Intindihin niyo nalang ako, dahil lagi naming iniisip po ay kayo. Lagi namin pong iniisip ay kayo. Dala-dala po namin iyon araw-araw," he said.

Revillame went on to relate the difficulties of hosting a daily variety show live, which he said entails keeping up energy and an all-smiles front despite having personal problems to deal with.

"Hindi po biro ang mag-show araw-araw, na kahit wala ka sa mood, may sakit ka, kailangan mo ngumiti. May namatay, may sakit ang anak mo, may sakit ang pamilya mo, may sakit ang staff mo, hindi po biro 'yon dito sa amin sa 'Wowowillie.'

"Kailangan paglabas namin, sumisigaw ka, nakangiti ka kahit nagdurugo ang puso mo. Iyan po ang aming obligasyon, at iyon po ang aming kaligayahan, ang magbigay saya sa inyong lahat," he said.

Emotional Willie

He then proceeded to sing some of the hit songs popularized on his program. While singing "Ikaw na Nga," Revillame cried with his voice breaking.

Proceeding with his farewell speech, Revillame thanking several officials and executives of TV5 for allowing him to continue his program over the past three years. He also thanked former Sen. Manny Villar, who was in the audience, for being a partner in giving away some 28 houses as contest prizes.

Referring to the show's many contestants, Revillame continued, "Dito po, ang pinapansin ay 'yung mga hindi nabibigyang-pansin."

"Ang importante po dito, binibigyan ng halaga kahit sino ka, lalung-lalo na 'yung mga taong kapus-palad, 'yung mga tao pong nangangarap. Akala nila walang pangarap. Meron po, basta may mga programang katulad nito, na may pag-asang binibigay.

"Nandito kami hindi para lang maging masaya kami. Nandito po kami dahil nagiging masaya kami pag nakakapagbigay kami ng kasayahan sa inyo araw-araw," he said.

Not goodbye after all?

Revillame proceeded to thank the behind-the-scenes staff of "Wowowillie," as well as his female co-hosts who appeared to be in tears as he gave his speech.

He also mentioned former co-hosts Ethel Booba and Ate Gay, who quit the program after Revillame went on an on-air tirade in March criticizing them for supposedly being disrespectful toward him.

"Ako po ay taong hindi nagtatanim ng galit kahit kanino. Ako po 'yung taong wala sa akin 'yung hatred, 'yung bitterness, wala po sa akin 'yon," he said.

After showing another montage showing the entire "Wowowillie" crew waving goodbye, Revillame told the audience, "Wala ho ako dito kung wala kayong lahat. Kayo pong lahat ang nagbigay sa akin nito, kayo pong lahat ang nagdala sa akin dito."

Although he had previously announced the end of the program to mark his retirement, Revillame appeared to sing a different tune in his closing statements on Saturday.

"Sarado na po ang 'Wowowillie.' May bubuksan para sa magandang pag-asa at magandang buhay. Abangan niyo po 'yan... Wala pang kumakausap sa akin," he quipped, laughing. "Kung may kakausap, pag-iisipan."

"Salamat! I will return!" he said.

Willie muling tinanggap ng ABS-CBN

by CHAROT/CHARLIE LOZO Oct 15, 2013 10:56pm HKT

NAGWAKAS na nitong Sabado, Oktubre 12 ang programang Wowowillie ni Willie Revillame sa channel 5.

Hindi na nga natuloy ang muling pagpirma ng kontrata ni Willie sa TV5 sa dahilang diumano’y nakarating talaga kay Willie ang balitang talagang minaliit siya ng ilang big bosses rito?

Hindi raw kasi nagre-rate ang show ni Willie sa TV5 kung saan marami rin daw ang nagrereklamo sa kagaspangan ng pag-uugali ng nasabing TV host.

We heard na isang big lady boss daw ang di type si Willie na siyang dahilan ng maagang pagkaalis ni Willie sa TV5?

Hind nga raw binanggit ni Willie ang name ng nasabing lady big boss sa TV5 na ito sa dahilang di rin naman siya gusto ni Willie.

Dahil dito, ibinulgar na ng aming source ang katotohanang muling tinanggap ng ABS-CBN si Willie para muling ibalik ang Wowowee sa noontime ng ABS-CBN sa darating na 2014!

Where to, Willie?

    Published : Thursday, October 24, 2013 00:00
    Written by : Joey Aquino

IT looks like Willie Revillame is heading nowhere as TV host. Currently, there seems to have been no takers yet for the controversial host after TV5 let him go.

He had announced“he shall return” but the question is where?

One executive from ABS-CBN declared that if the network get to consider him again, he would step down.

With GMA7 execs, their lips are sealed.  For TV 5, it seems like it’s okay for them to release him, after having a hard time getting ratings and barely help the television station, despite the big budget.

It seems tables have turned after he left ABS-CBN years ago and confidently selling himself to TV 5 and eventually got a big share with the assurance of making the show work again like the Willie of “Wowowee.” But he failed as it proved that making a good show is a collective effort and not solely about himself.

Probably the question now is not where he will return to but where will he soon end up? Just asking…

Wowowin just got 'cancelled' and is it possible for Wowowin to return to GMA but in Eat Bulaga's timeslot? Or will it be pre or post programming for EB? What are your thoughts?
