After almost a month of rest
where everyone felt his absence, the Wowowee studio is ready to welcome back
host Willie Revillame on the noontime variety show.
It will be recalled that the TV host became involved in a controversy when he made an inappropriate remark during the August 3 episode of Wowowee. Willie openly expressed his irritation for the insertion of a live feed of the late Cory Aquino's cortege as he was hosting the ABS-CBN noontime show.
The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board chairman Consoliza Laguardia filed a complaint against Willie for allegedly violating the Broadcast Code of Ethics of the Kapisanan ng Brodkaster ng Pilipinas. Laguardia also claimed that the Kapamilya host violated MTRCB, Sec. 3 of PD 1986 [for doing an act that is] "objectionable and contrary to good customs and tradition."
Since then, Willie has not been hosting the globally popular game show. ABS-CBN stars such as Gabby Concepcion and John Lloyd Cruz have taken turns to co-host the show. Willie will once again grace the boob tube when he resumes hosting duties this Monday, September 21.
Scoopbox (PEP's official Twitter account) recently reported that Willie is planning to make a big announcement regarding his political plans for 2010.
On September 19, a tweet announced that "Monday's a big day for WILLIE. First, he'll make his Wowowee comeback. Second, he'll make a big announcement, said our source......and what's the big announcement gonna be about? Source whispered to PEP: 'Tatakbo siya as Vice President.' And his running mate? Willie's running mate will be Manny Villar."
