Television host Willie Revillame reportedly refused the offer from Television and Production Exponents Inc. to become part of Eat Bulaga and compete again with Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon on noontime.
According to the revelation of veteran columnist Cristy Fermin, Revillame junked the proposal from the Jalosjos family because of his respect for the legendary trio.
“Ang gusto po nila, lumabas si Willie (Revillame) sa di-lehitimong Eat Bulaga! at tatapatan ang unang sultada ng Tito, Vic, and Joey at Dabarkads dito po sa TV5. Gusto nila noong Sabado. Isa lang ang sinabi ni Willie, ‘Matindi ang respeto ko sa Tito, Vic, and Joey. Hindi ko magagawa ‘yon.’ Ang ganda ‘di ba?” Fermin said.
However, Revillame said that he’s only open to talking with TAPE Inc. if they’re going to discuss ‘Wowowin,’ a hint that the television host was open to collaborating with the controversial production company.
“Kung ang dahilan kung bakit n’yo ko kaharap ngayon ay ang Wowowin, sige pag-usapan natin,” the veteran host stated.
It can be recalled that Revillame took a break from being a television host after his failed stint on AllTV.
Controversies also reportedly took a toll on Revillame’s health, and his doctors asked him to take a rest from working.
Last month, a public official revealed that Revillame planned to return his show ‘Wowowin’ on television.
“Iniimbitahan din niya tayong abangan ang pagbabalik ng kanyang programang ‘Wowowin’.” the public official told her followers.
