Here’s a quick catch-up for those who don’t know what’s going on with Willie Revillame, Ethel Booba, and Ate Gay these days.
Here’s a quick catch-up for those who don’t know what’s going on with Willie Revillame, Ethel Booba, and Ate Gay these days. (Note: This is just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak.)
Jojo Gabinete of PEP.ph reported that on February 28, Wowowillie co-hosts Ethel Booba and Ate Gay got into a tiff with the show’s main host, Willie Revillame. It all started when Ethel and Ate Gay allgedly complained about Willie’s decision pick the show’s choreographer Anna Feliciano as the winner of a just-for-fun costume contest in the show’s "Mini-Concierto" segment. Apparently, Ethel and Ate Gay complained about Anna’s use of back-up dancers.
That, of course, was not all. It turns out that Revillame also joked that Ethel’s outfit was similar to the controversial "dress" that Anne Curtis wore at ASAP 18 on February 24. Willie reportedly said, "Style ba 'yan? Ginagaya mo lang si Anne Curtis, e. Wala, ginagaya lang si Anne Curtis (Is that your style? You just copied Anne Curtis. Nah, you just copied Anne Curtis)." To which Ethel replied, "Ano ito? Bakit mo kami ikinu-compare doon? We're talking about talent, not singit (What’s this? Why would you compare us? We’re talking about talent here, not body exposure)!" The exchange made Ethel the object of hate of Anne’s fans on Twitter.
In any case, the show went on but Revillame interruped the "Tutok To Win" segment to tell everyone what had happened in the dressing room right after "Mini-Concierto" segment. He told everyone, "Pinagalitan ko ho si Ethel, saka si Ate Gay. Hindi sila professional." Then he launced into a tirade. He added, "Ethel, galing ka sa baba. Inaangat kita. Ganyan ang gagawin mo sa akin? Mag-isip ka. Ate Gay, binibigyan kita ng break, okay? Magkaroon kayo ng utang na loob (Ethel, you were no longer popular. I brought you back to the limelight. And this is what you do to me? Think hard. Ate Gay, I gave you this opportunity. You two should be grateful)."
