Is Willie Revillame going back to Wowowee?
Not according to ABS-CBN Corporate Communications Head Bong Osorio. In an official statement sent to TV Patrol and aired on July 14, he said in Filipino, "Reports of Willie Revillame returning to Wowowee are pure speculation. The ABS-CBN management and Revillame have already discussed his options after his break but both camps have not agreed on anything yet."
Revillame’s daughter Meryll Soriano told PEP.ph on July 12 that he might host the hit noontime show again. "I think he’s just fixing the legalities. I’m not sure but as far as I know, he will return to the show. We don’t talk about it. I don’t know the outcome of his first meeting with Sir Gabby (ABS-CBN Chairman Gabby Lopez) so I cannot speak on his behalf."
The actress said her father has been resting, taking up swimming, and playing golf, since his indefinite leave. "At least if he comes back, he comes back recharged."
