Wowowee Wilyonaryo Scandal: Willie: Eat Bulaga! na ang number one!

Matagal na.

Wowowee’s Willie: Iwan n’yo ko kung madaya ako (GMA News)

Wowowee host Willie Revillame got very emotional as he shared his true feelings about the “Wilyonaryo” controversy and Joey de Leon’s constant remarks about the issue. Joey is one of the main hosts of Eat Bulaga! on GMA-7, Wowowee’s rival program.

Willie seemed to lose control of himself and he blurted out, “Sa mga taong may sakit, kayo lang iniisip ko, off-cam, kahit walang camera, ano ginagawa namin dito? Tumutulong pa rin kami!”

Willie’s frustration was evident as he addressed Joey and the frequent remarks of the latter concerning the scandal. The exasperation of his voice showed how irritated he was with Joey.

“Ikaw na ang bida, ikaw na ang number one, sa iyo na ang ratings, ikaw na! Sige, Eat Bulaga! na ang number one!” Willie cried out.

Anong klaseng tulong ‘yan. It’s a game show. I think Willie has brainwashed himself as to what he is really doing. Wowowee exists for profit. The best way to help the Filipino people is not to run a bogus million peso game, but to educate the poor, give them medical assistance. By running a game show like this, you are making them rely on luck and miracles. Walang himala.

What a load of bullshit.

Sige iyak.

    I totally agree their not helping pipol their helping themselves, kung walang profit sa gameshow maske nakakatulong pa ito sisibakin ang host at gagawa ng bago. Plus wag mo i mislead ang tao sa pagiyak mo na kesyo pinipersonal ka ni JDL dahil ang totoong isyu ay dayaan sa gameshow…..

  • shay

    grabe, but what else is new?

  • dc222

    Hmm… making fun of street children on a live noontime show or using a stampede to make jokes or making accusations with the intention of trying to beat down the competition is pretty much a huge, sticking pile of bullsh!t.

  • sophia_golden

    Rickey, I couldn’t have said it any better. Very well put. I absolutely agree. Education and proper healthcare in the Philippines needs to be promoted more than game shows and ratings.

  • jhaiboipinoi

    Ewan ko ba dyan… OA sa reaction…

    Kuya Rickey, did read the article Joey De Leon wrote… His article was very well written… Very witty and sarcastic about his opinions in what’s happening lately in the Philippine’s showbizness…

    Never did Joey mention the name WOWOWEE or WILLIE, cuz very obvious naman na he was implying it was Willie… If you read between the lines…

    But it was only what, 1% of the total article when he said in the end, “…TEASTING is not bad, CHEATING is… on TV!”

    So I don’t really see nothing wrong with what he said, cuz Willie have said even worst comments and criticsms against Eat Bulaga and GMA-7 ever since the show went on air…

    Bakit sino ba ang nagsasabi parati, ito ang “Ito na show na totoong NUMBER ONE sa buong MUNDO,” in almost every single episode of Wowowee”…

    And yeah you’re right… It’s not even for the sake of the ratings, kitang kita naman yung nangyari eh… So dapat handa sya kung tirahin sya ng mga critics especially someone like JOEY DE LEON…

    Why the big reaction to a small little comment, kasi nga siguro, GUILTY!

    Diba, Willie even said it himself, “Joke joke joke joke joke lang ba?t ka nagagalit?
    Siguro ay totoo kaya naiinis!”

  • dc222

    What the hell has Willie said about EB other than he idolizes them.

  • jhaiboipinoi

    Ngayon lang naman yata sinabi ni Willie na ini-idulo nya ang EB… Other times he would make fun the segments the host or comparing the ratings cuz “worldwide” nga daw ang TFC…

    Ang tanong kasi, why is Willie only pointing out EB and si Joey De Leon when the whole Philippines, media, internet, YouTube, ABS-CBN, GMA-7, etc ang napagusapan sa issue…

    What’s with ratings again, who cares about the ratings, the issue is: WHY ARE THERE TWO SLIDES OF NUMBERS IN THE VIOLET BOX?

    Why confuse the people and point at someone who was poking fun at the issue… Si Joey kasi, talaga namang palabiro… At least kapag tumira, anonymous walang pangalang na binabanggit…

    There was no any proof Joey never mind fun of the Ultra Stampede, kaya nga nagkaiyakan pa nong time of the issue baka nya Channel 2 rin ang may pakana nun eh…

    And he wasn’t making of the street kids, he was making fun of the host and the show because the kids who wants to really join the DoDooDooo Dadada segment never get a chance even though they push their way and almost cry parang lang makasayaw at bigyan ng premyo!

    The next day, EB had all the kids on the show dance on the platform para makisaya at makisayaw with host comparing kids actually having fun in their show…

    Kasi nga naman ang bilis mag-accuse ni Willie and pointing fingers directly, Joey was just asking questions kung bakit nga naman dalawa ang numero sa box…

    Ok, sabi nila there was cheating sa official statement… Kung totoo man yung scam or hindi, bakit hindi na lang sabihin kong bakit may dalawang slides of numbers inside the color violet?

  • dc222

    It’s a wonder how people refuse to believe the simple explanation of how a freaking wheel of paper works.

    And the only people making a big deal about this are GMA, GMA columnists, and GMA loyalists.

  • siennagold

    Walang kwenta ang kadramahan ek ek ni Willie Revillame. Obvious naman na pinapalaki niya ang issue when in fact Joey’s article was not even about willie or wowowee. The article was Joey’s reaction to the Banker’s statement in Deal or No Deal. May konting kapilyuhan lang si Joey sa last sentence niya at wala siyang binanggit na willie or wowowee sa article niya. Bakit masyadong defensive si Willie? Tinamaan siya?! LOL! Kasi po GUILTY si Willie/Wowowee. Hanggang ngayon hindi pa rin nila mae-explain kung bakit may dalawang numero sa isang wheel. BAKIT nga ba? Pero patay-malisya sila. Gumawa sila ng “controversy” para ma-divert ang attention ng tao at ginagagawa ni Willie/Wowowee na masama ang image ni Joey…para si Willie naman ang mukhang santo. Tactics ito ng ABS. Sagutin ni Willie/Wowowee ang cheating sa game show nila. Bakit nga ba dalawa ang numero ng wheel na yon?

  • EiC21

    hay, hay, hay………

    at least now may bagong issue at nakalimutan na si angel at ang kanyang moneyger. ang saya-saya diba?

    i just hope that willie and ABS-CBN would stick to the issue and explain to the people what really happened, e di tapos!

    ang siste e, imbes na issue ang sagutin e dun nakaturo sa ibang tao, e wala namang kinalaman si joey, ang eat bulaga at GMA sa nangyari sa show ni willie.

    ano ba yan??? stop using national TV for your personal gain willie. i just hope that all agencies concern will put an end to this.

    calling MTRCB, DTI, shld we call on the Congress and Senate as well? bakit di kaya isama na ang PANA at eban ang advertisements sa show ni willie tutal they are not naman daw for profit e!

  • paolo_pascual_13

    It?s disgusting how people believed the simple explanation of how a freaking wheel of paper works.

    Mahirap kausapin ang mga taong nagtatangatangahan lang o talagang tanga. Just because you are a fan of that show, you will accept everything that they do? Isang katangahang masasabi, people need explanation not a simple excuse words from the host. Ano ba ang mahirap ipaliwanag sa nangyari or they need more time para makagawa sila ng magandang script and at least believable ang kanilang explanation. Look what happened to OA, she went to London and stayed there for a couple of weeks para makapaggawa sila ng script tungkol sa kanyang pag over da bakod.

    Kaya iyong mga nagbubulag bulagan dyan na pilit nagcocomment dito at pilit binubulag ang iba pang bloggers para gumaya sa kanya, please shut up na lang.

    SAPUL KAYONG LAHAT DIYAN!

    Joey’s harsh comments can be annoying but Willie’s pleads are even more annoying.

    Akala ko ba HUMBLE si Willie?

    Eh nag-a-ala Joey de Leon din pala siya on a SMALLER SCALE, eh!

    Look, if you happened to watch some of Wowowee’s episodes, you notice that Willie praises ASF Dancers and Anna Feliciano and at the same time… bashing SEXBOMB DANCERS! Nagpapasaring na rin just like Joey de Leon… ngayon paiyak-iyak pa siya sa patama ni Joey de Leon… LUDICROUS!

    @paolo_pascual… for sure mga TARKATANIC RABID KAPAMILYA FANS ang pinatatamaan mo! Ganyan ang mga iyan eh! and as for OA… It’s surely no other than Angel Locsin and her piggy manager Becky Aguila. I guess planadong-planado talaga ang paglipat. Palalabasin na nag-aaral sa London kuno pero has ABS-CBN NEWS featured na talagang nag-aaral si Angel Locsin or just making some docu ek-ek na andun si Angel with Pinoy residents para lang palabasing nag-aaral kuno roon.

    dc222, don’t be ignorant. i myself am not loyal to any network (i don’t even have a bloody subscription to either tfc or gma tv), but i have to say i found joey’s article to be witty and insightful, and i do find it ridiculous to be airing grievances and crying like a baby on a publicly televised gameshow. just basing my opinion on what i’ve read so far though. i do abhor this whole war of the networks, and i find this division and unhealthy competition to be a hindrance to the progress of our film and television industry there.

    anyway. i don’t care for either shows, and i’ve never seen wowowee, so, i can’t really make too much of a sound judgment on the current main issue. however, i do agree with rickey’s point, and that is, the best way to make a difference in people’s lives (particularly with the indigent) is by advancing the healthcare and education systems there in the philippines. i’m not discounting the fact that in the past these variety/game shows have given away many prices; they have helped a lot of people financially and these shows do provide escape because of their entertainment value. at the same time, these shows exploit their own contestants. in the end, the shows’ purpose is to gain profit and ratings for their respective networks. from a bigger perspective, it’s more ideal to promote a proper form of education and medical assistance to those who really need it instead of damn, insignificant ratings. likewise, we should disseminate the idea that all our people (poor and rich) are capable of fending off for themselves through hard work, not just through “miracles” or contests or showbiz. all these would achieve more long term and positive results. otherwise, the biggest load of crap would be to remain an ignoramous and to live vicariously through our effing celebrities.

    Bakit Ganun?

    Sinasabi ni Willie na Wala silang Paki-alam sa Ratings pero Bakit kapag Nananalo ang Wowowee sa Ratings Toodo-Pasaring sila sa EB?

  • http://mgdrreyes.blogspot.com mgdr

    from pep.
    Willie yesterday, August 29, openly questioned Joey’s intentions for allegedly throwing snide remarks ever since the “Wilyonaryo” controversy erupted.

    “Mr. Joey de Leon, nirerespeto pa din kita. Huwag mong hintayin na mawala respeto ko,” Willie exasperatedly challenged the Eat Bulaga! host

    Refusing to directly drop Willie’s name, Joey throughout his dialogue referred to the Wowowee host in the third person.

    “Hindi pa po pinapaliwanag ng taong ito bakit nagkagulo-gulo… Bakit hindi n’yo muna ipaliwanag bago [ninyo] ipasa ang sisi at para malihis ang atensiyon ng humihingi ng tanong na bakit nagkaganun. Inuna n’yo pang tirahin yung ibang tao para, ano ba, malihis ang atensiyon?

    “Ang pagsasalita ko pong ito ay alang-alang sa milyun-milyong Pilipino na nanonood ng telebisyon at humihingi ng paliwanag. Sigurado po ?yon, humihingi kayo ng paliwanag. Bakit nagkaganun? Para lang sa spirit ng fairness siguro dapat natin paliwanag.”

    The veteran comedian-host then let out a food-for-thought to his counterpart: “Kaibigan, para sa ?yo ?to, explain before you complain. Paliwanag mo muna. Pag naipaliwanag mo na nang maayos ?Ah kasi ganito kasi e, nagkamali, o, ganun.’ Wala, e, ang nangyari parang binalewala mo ang gusto ng Pilipino at ng mga sumusubaybay din sa ?yo na ipaliwanag mo ?yung detalye.”

    Joey also called Willie to learn when to really owe up and explain sensitive issues to be fair especially to the viewers.

    “Pag-aralan mo na magpaliwanag kung may dapat kang ipaliwanag na mga ?diumano’ ay pagkakamali mo dahil pare-pareho tayo ng ginagawa, e, para sa tao. Lagi mong sinasabi ?para sa bayan,’ pero yung mga ganung pagkakataon, paliwanag natin. Kung ano man ang kalabasan ang reaksiyon ng tao sa ?yo, tanggapin natin,” advised Joey.

    He offered another recommendation or two, but this time in typical Joey de Leon fashion.

    “At isa pa, importante sa lahat, pag-aralan mong umiyak ng may luha,” he jested breaking the seriousness of the moment.

    Taking another shot, Joey then proceeded to pun Willie’s pet name to his contestants to conclude his speech.

    “At sa mga taga-Senado nga pala, binabati ko, nanonood. Alam n’yo inuuna n’yo ?yang ?Hello Garci,’ bakit hindi n’yo muna unahin ?tong ?Hello Papi’?”

    You know, in Philosophy, this might be what would be called as ARGUMENTUM AD VERUCUNDIAM – which is appeal to shame/ego, which, in layman’s terms, would be called as face-saving. =) At least that’s what our Einstein of a prof told us.

    It ends at this point.

    any proof that joey did that?

    actually, the point here is about the wilyonaryo thing..not about joey, saying something!!
    marami ng naglalabasan nito. joey did not start it!

  • sophia_golden

    le meow, you’re right. and isn’t it also an apeal to pity? and it’s a big fallacy as far as rhetoric goes.

    melanie, it is still for gain in the end. the main purpose of game shows (whether it’s eat bulaga or wowowee) is not really to help people. i’m not saying people aren’t helped. of course, they are, but as for the “main” purpose, it’s for entertainment, for profit and for ratings, for viewership. that’s how the bloody networks get their “pondo.” they gain their pondo because the more popular their shows are (meaning the number of viewers they get), the more advertising they will receive, which essentially fund the effing shows. it’s not all nice and rosy as you paint it out to be.

    education of the mind does not come from game shows. it comes from proper funding of schools, from reading books, from being self-efficient, from family, etc. so, in that sense, rickey’s point is well validated.

  • sophia_golden

    “bukod p ang wowowee na tumutulong kng wla ang wowowee wlang pgku2hanan ng pondo pra ma ishare sa ibang mhhrap. of course kumkta ang wowowee sa advertisements thats why anjn yn, pro kta dn nmn n tlgang naisshare nla and nkk2long dn ang TFC through wowowee. ”

    also, right there proves rickey’s point, that people are led to rely too much on game shows to alleviate the financial sufferings of the poor. where exactly is the education in that? is it putting books in schools? sure, some of the winnings can help one family’s struggles, but in the over all scheme of things, on a national socioeconomic level, how are those funds from game shows advancing the lives of the filipino people?

  • sophia_golden

    by the way, melanie, i apologize if i came off too assertive. it’s nothing personal, so, i hope you won’t be insulted. i just really think rickey made a good point.

  • Babe4u14344

    Honestly, I don’t think ABS-CBN would cheat. They are the ones helping many kababayans. Mapamahirap, gustong mag-umpisa nang business (kabuhayan), etc.
    Teka lang…..alam ba ninyo ang nangyari sa pagbukas ng box dito sa video nang wilyonaryo? Alam ba natin na inside ALL those boxes are ZERO?… dahil may nabasa ako’t may nagsabi na – ZERO ang default number nang lahat nang box which yon ang nakalagay sa lahat nang boxes then they put the prices on top of that zero, kaysa naman palitan ang mga ito isa-isa. Hindi naman naexplain. Hay naku!
    Oh, ano? Does GMA-7 or Joey de Leon knows that info? I guess not dahil gusto nila laging manira nang tao…tulad ni Angel Locsin at Willie Revillame.
    Alam nyo, I do believe kaya tumawa si Willie nung binuksan nya ang violet at zero ang nakalagay ay dahil yun ang default number nang lahat nang box, kaya tumawa’t binale wala nya ito at hindi i-nexplain.
    Admit it…naging malaki ang issue tungkol sa zero at tinawag na pandaraya dahil ang ibang taong pinangananak nang mahilig manira nang kapwa.

    joey’s interview-phone patch-

    Bago pa ang programang ?Eat Bulaga? sa GMA 7, nagpaunlak na ng panayam sa radyo ang host nitong si Joey de Leon na kababalik pa lamang mula sa Hong Kong.

    At sa naturang panayam ay maaanghang na salita ang binitiwan nito bilang sagot sa naunang mga pahayag ng host ng kakumpitensyang ?Wowowee? sa karibal na network na ABS-CBN 2 na si Willie Revillame.

    Dahil sa TFC (The Filipino Channel), madaling nalaman ng buong mundo ang mensahe na ipinarating ni Willie kay Joey nang magsalita siya sa Wowowee noong Miyerkules nang tanghali.

    Ilang minuto pagkatapos magsalita ni Willie, nakatanggap kami ng text message mula sa isang kaibigan na nagbabakasyon sa Australia.

    Napanood nila sa TFC ng kanyang mga kasama ang emotional statement ni Willie na nakikiusap kay Joey na huwag paglaruan ang pagkatao niya dahil hindi siya mandaraya.

    Teary-eyed si Willie habang ikinukuwento nito ang mga pagpaparinig ni Joey tungkol sa insidente na nangyari sa Wilyonaryo segment noong
    August 21.

    Mahaba ang litanya ni Willie at naging personal ang mga pagbatikos niya laban kay Joey. Mariin na itinanggi ng Wowowee host na may dayaan na naganap sa kanyang programa.

    Hinamon pa niya ang ABS-CBN management na tanggalin siya bilang host ng show kung mapapatunayan na totoo ang bintang laban sa kanya.

    Sa mga hindi nakapanood sa Wowowee, hindi nila mami-miss ang pinag-uusapan na episode dahil naka-post ang 8-minute video sa http://www.youtube.com.

    Inilabas ni Willie ang sama ng kanyang loob dahil palagi na lamang daw siyang “tinitira” ni Joey na itinuturing niya na idolo at inspirasyon.

    Naging emotional si Willie, lalo na nang balikan niya ang nakaraan. Ang pagpapaalam niya kay Joey na magkakaroon na siya ng sariling noontime show sa ABS-CBN, ang pagkikita nila sa Las Vegas at pagpapakuha niya ng litrato na kasama si Joey at ang kaso ng kanyang nirerespeto na TV host/comedian.

    Sinumbatan din ni Willie si Joey na hindi man lamang ito tumawag sa kanya para makiramay noong mamatay sa stampede ang 71 tao sa unang anibersaryo ng Wowowee sa ULTRA.

    Muling inulit ni Willie ang kanyang madalas na sabihin. Sa pamamagitan ng Wowowee, gusto niya na matulungan ang mga mahihirap at makapagpasaya ng mga tao.

    Inabangan kahapon ng buong bayan ang Eat Bulaga dahil gusto nilang marinig ang mga sagot ni Joey sa mga paratang laban sa kanya ni Willie.

    Bago pa nagsalita si Joey sa Eat Bulaga, nagpaunlak siya ng phone-patch interview sa Double A sa Double B, ang morning radio program nina Ali Sotto at Arnold Clavio sa dzBB.

    Hindi napanood ni Joey ang pagsasalita ni Willie sa TV pero narinig niya ang mga pahayag ng Wowowee host sa radio habang papauwi siya ng bahay mula sa airport.

    Nagbakasyon sa Hong Kong ang cast ng Eat Bulaga at ang mga tirada sa kanya ni Willie ang balita na sumalubong kay Joey noong hapon ng Miyerkules.

    Composed na composed si Joey habang iniinterbyu nina Ali at Arnold pero halatang-halata sa tono ng kanyang pananalita ang galit na nararamdaman laban kay Willie.

    Ang mga sumusunod ang bahagi ng mga sagot ni Joey sa mga katanungan nina Ali at Arnold:

    “Natawa lang ako.. Ganoon pala ?yon. Wala siyang alam. Mababaw. Hindi niya kayang magpaliwanag. Hindi niya kaya na mag-sorry.”

    “Lahat nang sinabi niya, punto por punto, sablay lahat. Isa lang ang half-truth doon, ?yung nagpaalam siya sa akin bago pumasok (as Wowowee host). Totoo ?yon, nagpunta siya sa akin…Tingin ko, hindi paalam. Pinagyabangan ako. Sinungaling talaga.

    “Magaling maggawa ng drama. Dinadrama niya lahat… Mahal ko po kayooo.. May taong ganoon. Malansa…traydor.

    “Hindi ko binabanggit ang pangalan niya. Hindi ko binabanggit ang show niya. Di sana, idinemanda niya ako. Daldal siya nang daldal.

    “Nanggagamit, ginagamit ako. Wala lang sigurong…Umiiwas sa isyu.. Dina-damage control.

    “Bakit ganoon? Bakit siya, hindi siya magsalita? Buti pa ?yung kompanya niya (referring to ABS-CBN?s statement).”

    Nang ulitin ni Arnold ang sinabi ni Willie na mahirap maging solo host ng isang show, ito ang opinyon ni Joey:

    “Loko pala siya, puwede siyang kumuha ng kasama pero.. Paano, gusto niya siya ang bida.

    Ayaw niya na masapawan siya ng iba. Mayabang talaga ang animal na ?yan. Kaya ba niyang mag-show ng anim?

    Bago natapos ang interview sa kanya nina Ali at Arnold, nagsalita si Joey na naaawa ito kay Willie. To quote him:

    “Naaawa nga ako dahil bobo…”

    ayan na nagsalita na!!

    hi sophia! very well said!

  • sophia_golden

    mgdr, thanks. i just hope i didn’t offend anyone too much. :) sorry to dc222, too. it’s nothing personal.

  • dc222

    It’s all right Sophia.

    But I don’t think I’m ignorant if I can accept a simple explanation.

    About the advancing education. Eat Bulaga and Wowowee do the exact same thing in terms of having people play games and win prizes. So if Wowowee should close up shop because it’s “exploiting” poor people, then EB would have to do the same?

  • sophia_golden

    Yes, I’m sorry for calling you ignorant, dc222. It’s just that, you can’t claim that everyone who questions the issue with the Wowowee controversy are all GMA loyalists or GMA staff members or so on. Granted devout supporters would side with their respective networks, but still, it’s jumping the gun to generalize everyone under one category. I just caught a clip of the Wowowee incident on YouTube, and even I do wonder, but at the same time, as I said, I don’t watch the show so, I can’t make a proper judgment. And as you’ll notice I haven’t offered a claim that Willie’s a cheater. I really can’t. The only unfavorable remark I’ve made about him is call him a cry baby. But eh, that’s because he really did cry on national TV, and personally, I don’t like it when adult men cry over a bruised ego or something that I feel is trivial. I’ve seen grown men cry over something much more substantial than just an accusation of cheating.

    And if you read all my posts carefully, I mentioned game shows—be it Wowowee or Eat Bulaga—exploit their contestants. I was careful to say “game shows” in general to make it clear that I’m not siding with any one network or any one show. Otherwise, doing so would make my own arguments (particularly about the network wars) moot. I hope this satisfies your question.

    Game shows are supposed to be entertaining, but they’re not meant to resolve the national deficit and improve the socioeconomic conditions in the Philippines. Though they help individuals, they shouldn’t promote the idea that game shows exist to resolve the struggles of the Filipino people—that isn’t their primary purpose. At the end of the day, when the network executives meet or the staff and the hosts of the show meet, one of the top things or maybe even the number one thing they will talk about in the conference room is how well they did on their ratings. Having high ratings would mean the shows stay on air; ratings and advertising are the shows’ livelihood.

  • dc222

    I totally understand Sophia. That question wasn’t even directed at you personally. After reading Rickey’s original post… “Wowowee exists for profit. … By running a game show like this, you are making them rely on luck and miracles. Walang himala.”
    I couldn’t help but think, ummm… doesn’t Eat Bulaga do the same thing? It’s a game show too, and just as many people rely on it to get lucky with tak-tak-ing or whatever game they have.

    With the generalization, the whole issue wasn’t a big deal until Joey made snide comments everyday on EB (and Startalk!) and GMA paid columnists “reported” on it. (We all know ABS and GMA have their paid columnists to write anything in the best interests of their network.)

    Like Willie said, no one is complaining… other than Joey, staunch Kapusos, and people who have always hated Wowowee/Willie. Fans of Wowowee are of course not complaining. But even those who watch the show pa-minsan-minsan can understand it was an honest mistake. No contestant is complaining, no formal complaint has been filed, no one is suing Wowowee…

    Also, about Willie crying/being upset/angry… Joey and sometimes the Sottos have made below the belt jokes and comments about Willie and the show itself. Willie has repeatedly said how he idolizes them or looks up to them as institutions of noontime shows. If Willie makes a joke (never malicious or accusatory or insulting), he always follows up with something like “Nah, biro lang. Idol ko kayo”
    From making fun of the stampede to making fun of street children and everything else, I’d probably have gone off on them a looong time ago. So Willie has shown a lot of restraint for only speaking up now after months, years of their big mouths.

  • sophia_golden

    dc222, yeah, I’ve read a lot from both camps. And even I can’t really form an opinion either way because I would have to watch both shows regularly to make a proper judgment. Right now, it seems the line between right and wrong is really blurred. There are good arguments coming from both sides, and there are also rather bad ones. Whatever, it’s another out-of-hand controversy in our industry. I think it would just be best to stick to the main issue (the particular wheel game in question) and not drag anything else from the past or other incidents. I think if it’s not relevant, then, it shouldn’t be attached to any argument, but I have seen lots of comments and that isn’t the case for some. Ah well. Two weeks ago, I assumed a new and bigger controversy would soon overshadow the Angel Locsin scandal. Sure enough, here we go. More than likely, this Wowoweee and Willie vs. Joey controversy will be overshadowed again. Perhaps another STD proclamation from Kris? Hehe. Sorry. I just had to take a jab at that. I know that issue’s old, but I just found out recently she had done that, and I’m not particularly fond of her.

    Actually, dc222, I just visited PEP, and this caught my eye: “Senator Mar Roxas to conduct probe on “Hello Pappy” controversy”. I haven’t read the article, but based on that headline, I’m assuming a formal complaint against Wowowee has been filed. Whether the formal complaint came from Joey or GMA or concerned viewers of either network . . . who really knows.

    The investigation may be bad or it may be good. In the end, things could be clarified and this hoopla can be put to rest.

  • dc222

    That’s the thing with Philippine showbiz though. You bring out every single thing in a person or group’s (maybe a network) life and use it against them.
    If nothing is to be found, you make something up. It’s an unfortunate truth about this “great” entertainment industry in the Philippines.

  • dc222

    Yeah, I read about Roxas. But apparently according to this Inquirer article posted at PEX (http://www.pinoyexchange.com/forums/showpost.php?p=21367937&postcount=340), neither the DTI nor the MTRCB have received formal complaints.

    The DTI says they have no authority with these kinds of matters, while Laguardia herself said the episode was neither “too explicit nor too violent,” therefore didn’t violate any MTRCB regulations.

  • sophia_golden

    Well, our industry’s been long overdue for major changes. It’s really sad. I think we should do away with the studio system, and give the artists (actors, writers, directors, cinematographers) a bit more freedom to choose the kind of work they want to take on. And I think our celebs need to practice a bit more tact and be less open about their opinions and personal life. There will always be detractors, and that’s a fact, but that’s something everyone who chooses to be in the industry will have to learn to live with. If the more internationally renowned celebs have to put up with paparazzis stalking them (not even just 2 or 3 feet away) and do it with class (without uttering a sound), then, our local celebs should be able to deal with whatever’s thrown their way, with class and dignity.

  • sophia_golden

    dc222, yeah, who knows about any formal complaints. Whether it’s the MTRCB or the Senate that does the investigation, the issue needs to be put to rest or at least, it needs to be mellowed down. And if no investigation is conducted, then, it’s c’est la vie, but I don’t think that would quiet down any rumblings. This issue’s overkill.

    Actually, I’ve made up my mind. I’m annoyed at both Willie and Joey (even though I was impressed with his article). They’re both grown men. Doesn’t matter who started it. They’re both adults, so, they’re supposed to muster up a semblance of maturity, and they haven’t done that. Ah, Philippine showbiz . . . always expect loud bickerings between celebs.

  • jnica

    Oh, I love this! “Game shows are supposed to be entertaining, but they?re not meant to resolve the national deficit and improve the socioeconomic conditions in the Philippines. Though they help individuals, they shouldn?t promote the idea that game shows exist to resolve the struggles of the Filipino people?that isn?t their primary purpose.”

    I totally agree! Im sick and tired of people saying that their show’s helping poor people, blah blah blah! What a pathetic strategy to gain sympathy of televiewers.

    But then… “ONLY IN THE PHILIPPINES.”

    Narito po, mula kay Elsie Joy Palma
    : “Paki lang po kay Willie
    Revillame, ‘wag naman niya masyadong iangat ang sarili niya at
    ipangalandakan sa tv na marami siyang natutulungang mahihirap.

    “Excuse me po, sina Rosa Rosal at Boots Anson-Roa ang dami ring
    natulungan, pero never natin nakita o napanood na nagsisigaw sa tv
    para lang ipagmalaki na marami silang natutulungan.

    “Ang pagtulong nina Ms. Rosal at Ms. Roa, walang kapalit na
    hinihingi. Tumutulong sila hindi para mag-rate ang mga show nila. At
    hindi nila ginagamit ang pagtulong para lang maabsuwelto sa mga kaso.
    Si Willie po, everytime na may kasong kinakaharap, lagi niyang
    binubuwelta sa tao na gusto lang niya makapagpasaya at marami siyang
    natutulunganng mahihirap na kababayan.

    “Utang na loob ang tunay na pagtulong, hindi ‘yan pinamamalita at
    hindi ‘yan ginagamit na kasangkapan para lang kampihan ka ng tao sa
    mga issue against you.

    “‘Ika nga ni FPJ, ang ginagawa ng kanang kamay, ‘wag ipamalita ng
    kaliwang kamay. Lalo pa kung hindi naman sa sarili mong bulsa galing
    ang tinutulong mo sa tao. Maraming artista at hindi artista ang
    tumutulong sa mahihirap nang walang publicity. ‘Yan po ang tunay na
    pagtulong!

    “So, Willie, enough na ang pag-aangat sa sarili na marami kang
    natutulungang tao. Nakakaalibadbad pakinggan. Walang sincerity.

    “P.S Kung nagrereklamo si Willie na mahirap mag-host ng nang-iisa ng
    3 hours, eh, bakit ayaw nilang kumuha ng co-host? Dahil takot si
    Willie matalbugan ng makukuha nilang co-host? Pati ba naman ‘yan,
    kailangan pang ipamarili sa tao, as if naman siya lang ang
    nihihirapan sa show niya? Eh, sumusuweldo naman siya kahit
    nahihirapan siya. So, ano ang inirereklamo niya?

  • http://mgdrreyes.blogspot.com mgdr

    Mula kay Emma Caparas : “Dapat kay Valerie
    Concepcion mag-aral si Willie umiyak nang may luha. Aba, mas malakas
    pa ang tulo ng luha ni Valerie kay Willie. Kung si Willie, kulang sa
    luha, si Valerie oa naman. At puwede pakisabi kay Willie, ‘wag n’ya
    laging isumbat na marami siyang natutulungan at napapasayang tao.
    Hindi lang siya ang artista na nakakatulong at nakakapagpasaya ng
    tao. Kahit si Mura at Mahal,sa maliit nilang paraan may napapasayang
    tao. Kaya ‘wag niyang ipagyabang na siya ang sugo ng Diyos dito sa
    mundo na nakakatulong at nakakapagpasaya ng
    tao.”

  • paolo_pascual_13

    Ang galing ni direk manahan, naisip na ang paggeguest sa mga sundalo sa Wowowie. Ngayon maganda na namn ang tingin ng mga tao sa show dahil paying tribute sa mga sundalo ang effect nila. Natabunan na naman ang hello puppy scandal. I am sure ang senado magdadalawang isip na kung itutuloy p aang hearing dahil nagpakita na agad ng good motive ang show. Ngayon nga naman good na sila sa mata ng mga bulag na audience nila. Para silang mga bata na matapos paiyakin, bibigyan ng kendi para tumahan na. They are trying to show na maganda talaga ang hangarin nila para sa taong bayan. Bakit kaya ngayon nila naisip ang tribute na ito just right after the scandal. Hindi naman iyon ang talgang scheduled para sa araw na iyon, ask Alfie Lorenzo. Mga member ng PMPC ang dapat na maglalaro sa Wilyonagoyo tayo but pinalitan agad all of the sudden. Is there something fishy there? Are they trying to brive the Senate and Pipol of the Philippines, you decide?

  • sophia_golden

    maria, true, abs and wowowee have helped a lot of people, but it is still only a game show. don’t try to paint it as a superb charity program. all game shows are mainly for entertainment. the help they afford others is a bonus, but when it comes down to it, these shows exist for their own profit and reputation.

    and since this is rickey’s blog, he has every right to assert his opinion. we also don’t know much about rickey’s personal and professional life. who knows? maybe he does his own charity work. maybe he volunteers. whatever. it’s not a fair assumption that rickey has not done anything to help others, be a fil citizen, a fil-am, an american, etc. also, he is not a famous celebrity or a large corporation, so, it would be unfair to compare him to wowowee or willie or even joey.

    you said: “sa mga naniniwala sa abs-cbn mas madali nilang maiintindihan..pero sa mga katulad mong maka kabila..mas madali ang manira..”

    but if you’re also a steadfast supporter of any one [particular] network, wouldn’t you also be blinded by your own devotion? you lose any sense of objectivity if you’ve already made up your mind that you will remain devoted to any one network. so, it’s not so much that pro-abs people have the faculty to properly understand and be objective about the issue; they are more inclined to buy into whatever abs sells them because they are blinded by their devotion to the network. the same goes for pro-gma individuals or pro-whatever other network.

    so, really, it’s all just opinions clashing.

  • paolo_pascual_13

    Dapat lang talaga na magexplain na si Mr W, it looks like na marami pa talaga syang mga blinded audience. Magexplain sya and then tanggapin kung ano ang hatol ng taong bayan. Kung tanggap pa rin sya ng mga tao then be it, tanggap na rin ng mga detractors nya na ganon yon. Ganon kasimple!

  • sophia_golden

    well, maria got it half right about one thing. if people are on opposing sides (in this case, abs vs. gma), then, madili manira ng isa’t isa. it’s easy to claim things against each other when people are decidedly devoted to any one network. there’s really no objectivity on either side, and no opinion is absolutely right. i know this is a long shot, but sana respetuhin ang opinion ng bawa’t isa at huwag gawing personalan. i hope i don’t offend anyone, and i’m sorry if i do. we’re not above each other, but i believe we are capable of being above immature and judgmental retorts.

  • http://pinoy.rickey.org Rickey

    YES! Bumalik si Maria Dolores. That’s more like it. And unlike Willie, as usual, she has launched a personal attack against me! Woohoo! At some point hindi talaga makatiis ang mga ito. Go Maria Dolores!

    ==================================

    OWMIGAAD! She’s alive after 48 years of hiatus!!!!

    Ikaw ba ang balahurang commenter ng PEx na si madam.henrietta na kaliga nina eva kulaw, emma mao at redblood4ever?

    Yes Rickey! For sure, marami ka na namang nakahandang kasagutan para sa isang TARKATANIC FANATIC na ito. Personal attacks ang inatake niya, as usual… hindi man lang makapaghimay (maria dolores, ano pa nga ba?) ng logic regarding the incident.

    Dolores, why don’t you follow the universal rationale EXPLAIN BEFORE YOU COMPLAIN? Kase, you do nothing but to COMPLAIN, COMPLAIN AND COMPLAIN and ATTACK, ATTACK AND ATTACK without proper logic.

    If you are going to assume that Rickey is a paid blogger, then we can assure that you are an also paid attacker for ABS-CBN since you are way damn defensive for a humble-kunong network like the said network.

    First off, WOWOWEE is not a charity institution. It’s such a freakin game show and nothing else. Pagtulong na lang ang plus but not the main concept. Bakit, WOWOWEE lang ba ang tanging game show na NAKAKATULONG SA MAHIHIRAP? Si Willie lang ba ang NAKAKATULONG SA MAHIHIRAP? Ang daming personalities whom you can regard as REAL PHILANTROPHISTS that are not as famous as Willie, but they don’t need to use the poor people to uplift their public image. They don’t need to exploit the people up to their corresponding unwanted tragedies.

    Charity giving lang ba and feeding-the-poor lang ba ang pagtulong sa kapwa? No. The best way and always been the most prescribed way to uplift the masses’ conditions is EMPOWERING THE PEOPLE TO HELP THEMSELVES and NOT WAITING TO BE HELP kasi balang araw mapapagod din ang mga tumutulong sa inyo. WILLIE will soon get tired of helping-kuno.
    ABS-CBN almost ‘killed’ people for their MISMANAGEMENT of those involved in STAMPEDE.

    paolo, I constantly seeing Cristy Fermin’s column that usually contains nothing but comparison between Joey and Willie and the so-called complaints from viewers to her about Joey’s so-called ill-mannered behavior. Hindi ko na lang binabasa. I know naman how ludicrous Cristy Fermin writes her article.

  • paolo_pascual_13

    There are two types of people in showbiz, iyong totoong tao at iyong nagpapakitang tao. I salute JDL dahil he belongs to the former type, matagal na sa showbiz pero ang pagiging totoo ay andoon pa rin. Meron mga taong kabagobago pa lang sa showbiz pero alam mo na na puro pakitang tao lang ang ginagawa.

    Mga showbiz personalities na totoo:

Tutal naman kapag sila ang nagsalita talaga namang walang preno at NO-HOLDS BARRED talaga. Proven na iyan since I’ve seen their show at kahit hindi kasing-bongga ng Startalk, The Buzz at Showbiz Central eh puro info at katatawanan (matatawa ka na lang sa mga malulutong na halakhak nila)ang mararanasan mo.

    Agree ako na si ANNABELLE RAMA-ajumma na sa TOTOO list. Granted na mukhang pera, social climber at mahadera pero never siyang nagpakitang uliran at mabuti di gaya ng junak niyang si Ruffa.

    Dont make me laugh dc222! In my point of view you’re the one trying to “beat down” the competetion. Are you an agent of those money laundering bastards? Making fun of what? A stampede? To think that EB has to do that to win in a competition is itself a form of foolish pride! You think so highly that this newbie show actually has that capability dont make me laugh! If you want to bring that case about the stampede back up ok let me ask you this. Who was the money faced jerk who lured the people into a stampede with money anyway? If you like that show then so be it but from my point of view you’re doing what you’ve been saying what EB was doing… “attacking the management”. As for Willy… HAH! Stop appealing for pity that’s a big fallacy try winning this argument by stating evidences for your side not by getting the hearts of innocent, naive simpletons because it’s pathetic.
