Unfazed Willie Revillame bares show to have own studio
ACTOR-host Willie Revillame has clarified that his show Wowowin on Manny Villar’s new TV station, AllTV, is not suspended but, in fact, is on its way to having its very own studio soon.
“Maraming chismis, maraming usap-usapan, pinangungunahan nila ang katotohanan. [Pero] ito ang katotohanan: alam nyo ho ba na ang Wowowin studio ay nag meeting nanaman kanina. Minamadali na ho yan para magkaroon na tayo ng audience,” Revillame revealed on his program’s Monday night telecast and livestream.
(There are a lot of rumors, a lot of talk, they are getting ahead of the truth. But here is the truth: Do you know that Wowowin studio has met again. It is being fast-tracked so that we can have an audience.)
Under the portion, “24 Oras” — where he tries to imitate primetime newscasts — Revillame, in a video montage, showed the progress of their new and dedicated studio, which is being built at the Villar-owned Starmall EDSA Shaw. AllTV’s broadcast facilities and studios for other programs are also housed in the same venue.
“Minamadali na po iyan para ang ating mga mahal na kababayan ay mag enjoy na, manood na,” Revillame said, boasting that the “world-class” studio has 800 to 1000 seating capacity.
(It is being fast-tracked so that our beloved public can enjoy and watch.)
“Maraming nagbabalita ng kung anu-ano, lumaki na ng lumaki eh sa totoo lang naman ho, wala namang sinasabi pa, walą pang sinasabi sa akin, eh pinangungunahan nyo, nag trending pa si Willie Revillame dahil kung anu-ano ang sinasabi nila,” the host lamented.
(There are all kinds of news, which have gotten bigger when, in reality, nothing has been said. Nothing has been told to me and they are getting ahead. Willie Revillame even trended because of what was being said.)
Revillame said their production doesn’t care about the negative comments on social media and instead was focusing their attention to give entertainment and to help their avid followers and viewers. He then went on to say that collectively, “Wowowin” has 24,417,170 subscribers and followers on YouTube and Facebook.
“Malalaman nyo naman po iyan at ako pa ang unang magsasabi sa inyo (You will find out soon and I will be the first to let you know),” he said.
Over the weekend, Revillame became a trending topic when he appealed for support for AllTV’s programs. He asked the audience to set aside politics and have the heart for AllTV employees who might lose their livelihood.
“May mga lumalabas kasi na mga programa ngayon sa AllTV na mawawala. Eh parang natutuwa pa kayo na yung mga programa na nagbibigay ng tuwa sa TV ay mawawala.”
(There have been news that the programs of AllTV will be cancelled. It is unfortunate that some are even laughing that the programs that entertain on TV are those that will be scrapped.)
