Does Willie own part of ABS-CBN?
JOHNNY Manahan quickly came to Willie Revillame’s rescue after the Wowowee host was bombarded with negative and angry comments from viewers who think that success has gone to his head.
Manahan, called Mr M by his wards at Star Magic, seldom grants interviews, so they say. But because it’s Willie’s head at stake, he tried to explain for him, detailing on their previous agreement (on how the live news feed of the procession for the late President Cory Aquino from La Salle Greenhills to Manila Cathedral would be made so as not to be off-putting, and respectful) to why he blew his top on air.
Willie, in fact, had a point. But his timing was bad. And the way he conducted his request was rather too bossy for a mere talent like him. So some people are now wondering if he owns part of ABS-CBN, as other talents from the network could never bear such stance.
Or maybe he has an assurance from advertisers that no matter what, they will stick with him.
But what about the viewers who buy their products? Isn’t it that they have some morality clauses to follow?
Other than that, why would the management cling to him if they don’t think that he’s irreplaceable or indispensable?
While Willie has tried to redeem himself, and apologized for the misunderstanding, there are still instances where he still shows his power over the staff, co-workers and co-hosts of the show. Maybe, Mr M was just right to say that Willie is a perfectionist. He wants everything in order. For the good of the show.
Was he really just misinterpreted or does his real color manifested that day?
