Willie Revillame hospitalized, Kris Aquino to host 'Wowowee'
“Wowowee” host Willie Revillame has been hospitalized again due to pneumonia, a Showbiz News Ngayon report said Tuesday.
SNN host Kris Aquino said Revillame hosted ABS-CBN's top-rating noontime program "Wowowee" on Friday and Saturday despite feeling feverish. He also attended the "Wowowee-Lympics" held at the Araneta Coliseum over the weekend before going to Baguio City on Sunday.
On Monday Revillame again hosted "Wowowee" and did a TV shoot for an MTV.
On Tuesday, he decided to go to St. Luke's Medical Center in Quezon City after his condition worsened.
"This afternoon nasabi niya sa akin na magpapatingin siya sa doctor at dinala ang sarili niya sa Saint Luke's at ang sinabi ng doctor ni Willie na mayroon siyang pneumonia at kailangang pansamantalang magpahinga," Aquino said.
Aquino said she will temporarily take over as host of "Wowowee" while Revillame recuperates.
"Bukas (Wednesday, June 17) po habang nagpapahinga sa ospital si Willie ako po ang magte-takeover magho-host po ako ng Wowowee. At maraming salamat kay Wilie for entrusting Wowowee to me," Aquino said.
Revillame was hospitalized last February due to heart condition.
