willie revillame - willie revillame saying goodbye to tv network
Philippines
August 10, 2010 3:08am CST
The news said that Willie is saying goodbye to the network because it seems that he is taken for granted after his long leave in his noontime show Wowowee, but the TV network said that he can't do that because he still have his contract obligation until next year. What do you think is the best thing to do if you're in Willie's shoes?

I think abs-cbn will not make it easy to willie to just leave he want to revoked the contracts to be able him to work in other network but abs cbn will not make it to happen in takes month before it happens unless willie is willing to pay for the amount for that contract.

Too bad for ABS-CBN to not yet be able to sack Willie. To me he's so arrogant and toyed with the suffering of other people for the sake of ratings. He deserves to be suspended. As to being in Willie's shoes, he doesn't even have to bother. He's so rich he can live without getting paid for a decade.

Oh, yes i remember! Willie has a yacht, and almost earned almost after one billion pesos worth of almost everything he had. so, why not? can he just pay for it? most specially if he really wants to leave the network. some how i don't know why he went live to say things rather than just quit and pay for the said amount regarding the violation in the contract

I think that his problem is that, with the severe paycut he suffered, he may not be able to sustain his way of living. Also, maybe unbeknownst to us, he actually is supporting other people and that uses up his wealth too. Maybe he feels that he's been pushed to the limits, or his back's against the wall already so he's struggling now to get free of the contract so he can work elsewhere. But I think the network is well within their rights though, as they said in their statement, abs is the aggrieved party because it was willie who threatened management (how this all started) and he didn't show up for his shows.

I wonder what causes the network to shutdown the show, besides willies attitude. i can still see the biases in the network because of Willie supporting Manny Villar during the last election, while almost the whole network supported Noynoy during the Presidential race.there must be a reason why this has happened.

I think that is one of the underlying reason why willie was given a low down on ABS CBN show, his support for Manny Villar might have that effect coz Pnoy won. Probably that cold war is going on.

If i'm willie i will drive around the philippines in my sports cars or go island hopping in my yatch, fly around with my chopper or spend a quite time in my mansion and get some pretty ladies along the way. There are so many things that willie can do with his money. If his contract says that he's tied to ABS CBN for another year and if ABS wants to stick to that contract then there's nothing he can do about it but to honor it, after all he signed that contract.

Willie should start selling some of the luxeries he got and start saving - be more logical than egotistical! :P He needs money to be able to sustain his yacht, he needs money to pay his dues for his helicopter, his cars, his houses, and rest houses... and maid and bills too. If ABS is not giving him the usual money he is used to getting due to loss of his show, then that is his problem, because he is spending more than he is earning now that he was too arrogant of a person speaking like he is the owner of the network in front of millions of people. that is totally uncalled for. uh-uh...

Obviously, Willie is not happy with the way he was treated by ABS. No matter what people say, and no matter how arrogant Willie is, the truth is he has charmed the Filipino masses and it is for that reason why he's very effective in Wowowee. In any type of relationship, it is always best if both parties would talk openly, honestly and calmly about how they feel and from there they could settle the conflict between them. Willie and ABS should talk without prejudice. They should remove outside sources and just have a dialogue with one another. Whatever the decision of the two parties should be settled first between them before the media comes in. As always, the media sensationalizes everything. And in general, hear first the real deal to the person you're in conflict with before you hear others opinion so as not to cloud your judgment.

Willie Revillame is a bittersweet person. I like him in a way that he has winner punchlines. But what he did last May 4th - threatening his employer/ABS CBN was not honorable. He gave the public of how an airhead he can be. One of the many reasons why he can't win the Filipinos and one of the many reasons why he would always be miserable and lonely. What he should do instead, if only some events could be rewind, was to show they same attitude - that he humbled himself to Joey de Leon. He should have showed that to ABS CBN. Trying to win the sympathy of the masses is a loser thing. He becomes the joke. Yes, I still believe that he has a good heart but his ego ruled over him. Yes, he's got the money and almost everything. But look where he is now - lonely. This is a big lesson for him. I just hope that in the near future, he would know what it feels like to be humiliated on national tv just like what he did to his co host, staff and the contestants he had on his show. He still have a career. I bet he's going to TV5. I'd like to think that he's the male version of Kris Aquino. Ahaha!

The network is just giving a hard time because of the way he provoked the network during the jobert-willie issue. What he needs to do now is stop commenting on the issue.. wait til his contract ends.. while doing that he should take care of his investments.

If i may speak from ABs CBN side, i think the station is spawning a king cobra, a large verminous snake, willie is like a venomous snake with relation to his station, that is the way the station looked at it, so better they tie him up before he does anything weird. And for willie's action, he should not have spoken publicly about the matter, such legal predicaments may lead to his demise, he should have left it to his lawyers to inform the public.

That's what Willie got for being rude and arrogant. ABS-CBN should let go of him. They have lots of talents to choose from that needs their attention.

I really dont care about Willie. I dont like him in the first place. I think his show and most of the shows in ABSCBN are playing with human emotions. Its such a Filipino thing.

I will leave the network like he did after all said and done. Contracts, I guess can be revoked if you find it hard to follow it, just like annulment and in work, resigning.

If Willie got so many bad images in out of the Philippines. Abs-Cbn must have given him prior warning that his images as host of Wowowee is not being good as viewed around the world. Maybe some lapses on the part of Abs-cbn. But Willie must at present follow the legal terms of the company setting aside personal ones just for the public service of entertainment.

Be humble and respect others especially to the employer who gave fortune and fame. A public figure and idolized by the masses should set the golden rules and always be a good graces of examples to everyone. Oh my gee! I've watched these segment I thought It's the end of the world because three evil doers are seating side by side Willie, Annabil and Cristy.
