WOWOWee Was not WOWED by Cory Aquino Weepers


Share

To better understand this blog, you have to watch this video first.

So what do you think? Was it another insensitive feat from Willie? Or was it a bad judgment from the mogul TV Network to simultaneously air a nationwide phenomenon (next to EDSA People Power, of course) next to a noontime show known to promote entertainment to its viewers?

Here is Fierce Blogs’ opinion about the whole hullabaloo.

Willie to start with, is not known for being the noblest TV personality who ever dominated noontime TV. In fact, he had his share of violations meriting suspension from hosting/appearing on TV. But it wasn’t long after the banned was lifted when ABS-CBN reprogrammed their noontime show to be hosted by none other than Will himself. Of course we now know how big WOWOWEE is.

After hearing what Willie commented, I knew he’ll be in trouble or at least be misunderstood by some sectors. Who wouldn’t be? Imagine cracking “that line” while the whole nation mourns over Cory Aquino’s funeral. Talk about bad timing.

To most people, Willie’s comment is an evident showcase of arrogance and insensitivity – believing he is bigger and more worthwhile of airtime compared to The Lady who brought democracy back to our country.

However Fierce Blogs think differently about this.

It wasn’t Willie’s intention to disrespect the solemn ceremony. In fact, I think blurting those lines were his manner of giving respect (his personal touch) to the Aquino Family. It is NEVER appropriate to air the funeral coverage next to an overjoyed contestant dancing to “Nobody”. The only take away for Willie was the way he managed the awkwardness. Wrong choice of words and more importantly, wrong tone. It seemed he wanted the funeral footage to be removed because it’s his show and his time. Instead of wanting it removed, because, in his opinion, it’s an act of total disrespect.

Who is to be blamed then? Fierce Blogs is inclined to say… The Network - for being very vulgar and showing that they are not a charitable institution rather a company who needs to gain profit. All networks are anyway, right?

Notes:

1. To my readers, I AM NOT A WILLIE REVILLAME fan or even a follower of his show. Way not!

It seems you are on the other side of then fence. Our household is more inclined to say,

"Likas lang na bastos ang dumahong na yan"

We love you Tita corry.

Vic Sales said...

As host of the show, he should be responsible. It's about time to go back to earth. Ang yabang na nya eh.

Baka karma lang?

We strongly believe that it was arrogant in nature.. whammies.. Poor communication skill from the host and selfish network.. They just want to profit from Cory's death - knowing they have an edge since Kris is one of their talents....

I wish the show to end!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Go to hell Willie!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sa mga sumusuporta kay Willie, siguro ganyan din mga ugali niyo. Baboy!!!!

not surprised at all of the mixed reactions. we all have our own reasons to defend. we all have our own standards of morals and etiquette. we think ours is right and the others' are inappropriate. we view things differently; we hear things differently; we see things differently. in short, ang bastos sa iba ay pwedeng hindi bastos sa'yo. at ang bastos sa'yo ay maaring tama sa iba.

Hi everyone...

Such different opinions we all have regarding this issue...

But this made me laugh.. really.. a petition to oust Willy and the Show (http://www.petitiononline.com/badwilly/petition.html)

Mejo OA I think.. tsk tsk tsk

Definitely, I petition Willie to be ousted from the show, there are better people who are more eligible for the position.He's tactless and moroon...uneducated- walang siyang pinag-aralan eh !!
To the Kapamilya management- it's time for change.

For me it is 'just' to oust him on his own show not because of the recent issue, even way before, he is not a credible host. Yes he is 'only human' BUT did he changed his ways? Certainly NOT. He did keep himself exposing in front of a live audience his blatant ways. I thought a person like him could change through time and boy I am so wrong, he keeps getting worse! Perhaps he hasn't woken yet from reality. Is it right to mistreat people, guests, most especially his own staff in front of a live camera for all the world to witness?

I remember onetime he said something to his co-host I think that was the comedian guy, "....ewan ko ba kung bakit hanggang ngayon nadirito ka pa sa show na to eh" in a very sarcastic manner. Wow! he just ripped that guy a notch or two of his self-esteem, does it need to happen in front of a live camera? Can't he wait to blurt his harsh words off stage?

I hope Willie didn't forget where he came from. I agreed with this blog. But, heck I want him out! Enough of that Mr. goody-two-shoes facade. Go back to where you came from Willie! might that remind and employ you to stay humble and human. You cannot buy people's trust and respect. You have to earn them.

Hi kourtneyll,

I agree with you... It's just sad that he had to learn it the hardest way :s

ivy a said...

oooh....i am amazed that there are a lot of people who hate Willie...Don't get me wron..i'm in the same boat as yours..but I think we are still very much outnumbered..that's why he remains to be the number 1 noontime host these days..and wowowee is just a big hit...i dont see how they can make so much money out of the miseries of others....
but obviously, he didn't have that much power to override the miseries of Tita Cory's followers...
so what's happening now? i still don't see him on the show...is he ousted or just suspended? I'm sure the network has been thinking about kicking him out of their fence, considering his really bad demeanor oncam..but it will always be about the money..as long as there are pinoys who continue to be blinded by his schemes ..he will continue to dominate that network...so sad...

Not sure if he's back to hosting... let's find out how they will resurface and what's the drama this time?

Series of tears.. litany and endless apology?

Yuck!

you all guys correct pag ang tao ay lumaking asong ulol ganun pa rin sa bandang huli.pag bumalik siya sa paghuhost makapal talaga ang apog nito,tama na sobra na siya! dapat isisilid na siya drum saka itapon sa dagat o ipakain sa buwaya na kalahi niya.sa mga taga u.s.a na nagpupunta sa show niya okay lang na nandoon kayo pero huwag na sana kayong magbigay kahit ano ano sa kanya marami na siya niyan.ang maganda ido-donate na derekta sa mga kapos palad kung meron kayong isip, hindi na yaong may middleman na transaksyon.tignan ninyong maigi pag may nag-umpisang magbigay sa show niya dun lumalabas ang katakawan niya sa lahat ng bagay una kamay niya,dila niya,kasama niya yang si jimmy santol a.k.a owen hindi sila magandang ehemplo lalo pag napapanuod sa buong mundo,nawala na ang magagandang asal,ugali na itinuro ne juan dela cruz puro kasakiman

matagal ng panahon na ini-exploit ni Willie ang mga mahihirap na kababayan niya habang sa kakapalan ng mukha niya araw-araw ay patuloy pa rin niyang sinasabi na ang wowowee ay para sa mga dukha. Ayokong isipin na bulag ang karamihan sa atin at hindi nakikita ang paraan ng kanyang network para magkaron ng kaunting "tear-jerking scenes" na pipili siya ng mga mahihirap at pagdadramahin sa show niya at kunwang sobrang concern naman siya. pero hinahamak naman in front of the cam ang mga mahihirap kapag napahalo sa mga taga-TFC. Isa sa mga nag-comment dito ay nakahalata din ng blatant na panenermon ni Willie sa mga Staff and even to his own co-hosts. Akala ko ako lang nakakahalata nun na lagi ko ding sinasabi sa aking wife tuwing mapupuna ko. Sa totoo lang kasi noon pa niya ginagawa iyon. ewan ko ba sa ibang kababayan natin kung bakit hindi nakikita ang totoong kulay ng gagong si Willie.
