Willing Willie Suspended Until Holy Week 2011: Willie Revillame Will Sue Celebrities

 

Last Friday, April 8, Willie Revillame during the last part of his show “Willing Willie” expressed his sentiments to what he called an orchestrated attempt from several personalities to put a stop to his show no matter what it takes.

With the controversy of one of the show’s episodes featuring a young contestant dancing an erotic dance move while crying and several influential people saying Willie abused the child, the fate of the show is now at the hand of the MTRCB.  But even before the result of the deliberation of the MTRCB is released, TV5 has already instituted stricter rules and policies as regards to taking in children as part of their shows. (watch video of that controversial episode here.)

For their part, Willie Revillame and “Willing Willie producer Jay Montelibano apologized to people who may have been offended by the incident.

“Willing Willie” Suspended

During the April 18th episode, Willie Revillame announced that “Willing Willie” will be temporarily suspended until Holy Week.  He shared that this will give him the time to contemplate if he will ever go back to the show or if ever the show will even continue.

Last Saturday’s episode of “Willing Willie” was already a taped episode.  Up to this writing, TV5 has not yet issued any formal statement as to possible show replacement of “Willing Willie” or will with the network just air previous episodes.

Willie Revillame Furious at Celebrities

But the show did not end without Willie Revillame lambasting all those celebrities who castigated him on social networking site Twitter in relation to the controversial episode.  He enumerated all the celebrities whom he said maligned his reputation and already judged him on Twitter:  Jim Paredes, Leah Salonga, Aiza Seguerra, Tuesday Vargas, Bianca Gonzales among others.

Willie said that these people had not helped the poor but were quick to judge him without looking at the whole picture of the issue.  He added that they should have helped their fellow celebrity (referring to him) if that person has erred and not malign that person online.

Willie said that he is already studying his options of suing all these personalities.

Leah Salonga on the other hand shared in an interview by TV Patrol that she does not really mind whatever Willie Revillame said.  She added that as far as she knows, we live in a free and democratic society.

    Ano ka ba naman willie, matanda ka na ganun ka pa rin, grow up, marami dyan comedian tulad ni mang dolphy, bosing vic, walang nakakaaway, ikaw lahat yata awayin mo. Dapat sa’yo action star ka. magbago ka ng packaging from comedian to action star para okay lang kung may makaaway ka. Mayaman ka na naman, magbayad ka na lang ng spokeperson mo para di ka nagkakamali. You’re so impetious, your so fast to anger, read your bible so you’ll be in the right track, how our Lord is so very slow to anger and with abundance of mercy. Payo lang, grow up.

    nagtataka lang ako kung bakit si willie na lang lagi ang pinupuntarya ng mga ito. Patungkol kay Janjan yon naman ay magulang niya ang nagdala sa studio para lamang maipakita ang kanyang talino sa pagsayaw na magulang niya mismo ang nagturo.. Ang aking pagkakaintindi sa kanyang pagsayaw na may kasamang pag iyak ay pinapakita niya na magaling siya umarte at magdrama sa harap ng kamera. Ngayon bakit si willie ang langing sinisisi . Ito ba ay para talagang tuluyan mawala si willie?. Paano itong mga taong umaasa na sa kunting sandali ay sumaya? Itong mga mahirap na nangangailangan ng tulong. Di bat napakalaki ng contribution ni Willie sa gobyerno? Ang tax na binibigay niya sa gobyerno ay napakalaki at ang alam ko siya ang higherst paid tax to the government pagdating sa mga celebrities. Kayat maraming mga tao ang nakinabang sa kany a hindi lamang sa mga bigay diyan sa kanyang programa kundi sa ating mismong pamahalaan ay malaking tulong na lalong lalo na ngayon tayo ay nasa kahirapan. Kung ano mang mga pagkakamali niya ay dapat pag usapan at hindi na dapat palakihin pa dahil hindi naman siya criminal kundi nagpapasaya lamang siya sa tao.

    I really don’t know how to start this… *my opinion* lang… if you watch the video makikita mo naman na di inabused ni willie ung bata, una ang kailangan iblame ung parents ng bata kasi bakit pinasayaw ng ganun at bakit tinuruan sumayaw ng ganun!? i’m sure madami pa naman talent yang bata but yun napili ng parents niya so mali ng parents niya un knowing na asa tv pa ung bata.. & look ang dami natuwa dun sa bata so i don’t think na abused yun. for me for fun or entertainment lang yun.. walang masama.. ang masama asa maduming utak ng mga ibang tao. kung di naman tinuruan ng parents ng bata sumayaw ng ganun di naman magyayari lahat ng yun… i’m not a fan ni willie pero nilulugar ko lang mga pangyayari.

    & to those celebrity out there… don’t judge other people easily kasi kayo mismo may pagkakamali din tingnan niyo muna sarili niyo bago kayo magsalita ng di maganda sa ibang tao.

    Totoo ba na ang nanay ni Willie Revillame ay nasa Cabanatuan at nang hihilot at nag mamasahe sa labas ng isang barberya para lang kumain? E bakit po siya pinapabayaan ni Willie? Ni hindi man lang naipagpagawa ni Willie ng mahusay na tirahan ang nanay niya? Ang dami niyang natutulungan kuno pero ang sarili niyang ina di niya makalinga?
