Willie Revillame surprised televiewers on national television when he demanded ABS-CBN management to fire Mr. Sucaldito or else he will resign. It was followed by his filing of an “indefinite leave.”
Leaving the show in mid-air, ABS-CBN put Robin Padilla as guest host. It seems ABS-CBN is experimenting to create a new picture of the show. A lady is heard saying Robin is not “mayabang.”
Robin Padilla is very gentleman when he says he notified Willie Revillame before he accepted the hosting of “Wowowie” noontime show. Reports say there are a lot of positive feedbacks received by the program especially from the ladies. They really liked Robin Padilla. However, he says he is just a temporary fill-in. What a humble gentleman! A far contrast from the one he replaced. Well, it is really no surprise even her previous leading ladies cannot deny the fact – that is the character of Robin.
Not everyone has the chance to get an employment that pays that high as a noontime host. It is undeniable that Willie Revillame has his part of wealth and treasures he got from hosting the noontime show. It is nonetheless already a great blessing to thank God for and the innuendos thrown at him by Sucaldito should be the least among his problems.
An interview was reportedly given by Willie Revillame to another channel. What does Willie want to communicate to the people? To his network where he is still a talent? (Is he?) There was no word yet from ABS-CBN if he is fired or not. Willie’s action did put the network in an awkward situation which necessitates it to address his absence. It is a critical decision to keep the standing of the noontime show as to viewership ratings. We know that it is a show business. People want to be entertained during lunch breaks and they want the best. So ABS-CBN has to act swiftly before it brings the ratings down.
Perhaps, Willie is already very secured even a lot of bills are piling up. Maybe he will be getting better offers. Or retire early?
I remember an old adage “Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.”
