Willie Revillame takes blame for Mar Roxas-Korina Sanchez interview in Wowowee

To clear the "controversial" exclusive interview of Senator Mar Roxas and Korina Sanchez (inset) in Wowowee, Willie Revillame explains, "Sana maintindihan ni Kris [Aquino], sasabihin ko na, hindi kasalanan ni Senator Mar at ni [Korina] 'yan. Ako nag-isip niyan."


Willie Revillame admits that it was his idea to interview the newly-engaged couple Senator Mar Roxas and Korina Sanchez on his noontime show Wowowee last April 25.

It can be recalled that SNN: Showbiz News Ngayon host Kris Aquino expressed her disappointment over the impromptu interview of Mar and Korina in Wowowee, where they confirmed their engagement. In an interview with Boy Abunda, PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) said he found out that Korina had promised Kris an exclusive interview about the engagement on SNN.

But Willie took the blame and said that the couple had no idea about the said interview.

"Hindi ko kasi alam ang tunay na istorya. But you know, in terms of Korina and Mar, wala silang alam, it's all my idea," said Willie in an interview after the ground-breaking ceremony for his Wil Theater Mall held yesterday, May 13.

"To be honest with you," he continued, "sana maintindihan ni Kris. Siyempre, nag-guest sa amin, alangan namang balewalain ko 'yan? Binigyan ko ng importansya, binigyan ko sila nung dapat na para sa kanila. Nag-co-host si Korina, andiyan daw si Senator Mar, di ba? So, if you will notice, hindi ko ipinakita 'yong padyak-padyak [pedicab] niya. Papasok siya ng...ayoko niyan. Ang gusto, papasok ng nakapadyak? No. Pulitika na 'yan. Hindi, pumasok siya, may dalang bulaklak para kay Korina. Magtatanong nga ako sa 'yo, isang tanong lang, 'Ano bang magagawa mo sa bayan kapag ibinoto ka namin?' That's it, hindi ako nagtanong na, 'Ikaw ba may nagawa kang ganito?' Di ba, 'yon 'yon, e.

"In fairness to Korina and Mar, di ko sila pinagtatanggol. Ito lang ang totoo diyan, pumasok si Mar diyan, before that, nag-usap kami ni Mr. M [Johnny Manahan] na, 'Direk, puwede bang pasukan ko na si ganito, pasukan ko ng talk show?' Kasi si Korina, talk show naman 'yan. Si Mar, alangan namang paglaruin ko 'yan, di ba? Alangan namang pasayawin ko 'yan, di ba? Ayoko namang magmukhang...di ba? Disrespect naman sa kanila 'yan."

Willie said that he had no idea that Kris was promised an exclusive interview with Sen. Roxas and Korina.

He said, "When I talked to them, nagkaroon ng tampuhan. I never thought na, hindi ko alam na may ganun, na may arrangement. Dapat diyan, sinabi sa akin ng management. Hindi, dapat nagko-coordinate kayo, di ba? Alam mo, simple lang, e, dapat sinabi sa akin, 'O, 'wag mo na sila interbyuhin kasi may commitment 'yan kay Kris. Ibahin mo yung gagawin mo. Nakikinig naman ako, e."

He went on to say that Kris did not have to feel disappointed.

"Hindi naman dapat nagtatampo, e," Willie said. "Alam mo, nasa iisang bubungan lang tayo nagtatrabaho. Pero you have to understand that also."

The noontime show host also believes that the Queen of Talk would understand his position.

He said, "Si Kris naman, alam mo naman iyan, brilliant iyan, e, intelligent woman iyan. Siguro lang 'yan, sobrang love niya yung sila ni Korina.

"Pero sana maintindihan ni Kris, sasabihin ko na, hindi kasalanan ni Senator Mar at ni [Korina] 'yan, ako nag-isip niyan. Kung magtatampo man, walang dapat pagtampuhan, kasi kunyari, kunyari nakausap ko si Korina at Mar, nag-guest siya kunwari kay Kris, bakit ako magtatampo, e, ikagaganda naman ng [show], hindi ba? Ikagaganda naman ni Korina at ni [Sen. Roxas] 'yon. E, di kapag nakita ko na maganda yung ginawa ni Korina at Mar dun kay Kris, gagandahan din natin, pag ano. Di ba, at least you received compliment to each other kasi iisang bubong lang tayo, e. Saka matatanda na tayo, tampu-tampuhan, I don't think na sa hirap ng buhay ngayon... Alam mo, sa hirap dapat ngayon, lahat nagtutulungan, nagmamahalan."

Willie also mentioned that Kris could have a more detailed interview.

"But you know what, mas maganda 'yan, mas mai-interview 'yan ni Kris ngayon, ng lahat-lahat, from the start. At ano lang 'to, spice lang 'to sa Wowowee. Wala ito. Iyong detalyado, pati sapatos na isusuot ni Korina, damit, bracelet, lahat ng isusuot... Iyon ang magandang interview for Korina at Mar. I think, yun ang talagang detalyado. For the whole show ng SNN, for The Buzz, talagang diyan lang nakatutok."

When asked what advice would he give to Kris, he gave a general answer.

He said, "Ako advice ko sa lahat ng tao, tanggalin yung galit, poot, hatred, bitterness in your heart. Hindi ka aasenso. Ako, kahit makita ko yung taong pinaka-ayoko, lalapitan ko pa rin 'yon. Kasi, pag namatay ako, sasabihin nung galit sa akin, 'Mabait naman 'yan, e.' You know, ganun, e, di ba? Kumbaga, ang hirap na ng buhay, e. Tayo-tayo pa ba hindi pa tayo magmamahalan, di ba?"
