The Women of Wowowillie
If there’s one thing you can count on Willie Revillame’s noontime shows, it’s that there’s always pretty and sexy women around co-hosting them. Some, like Mariel Rodriguez, have become popular stars in their own right, while some only quietly fade into obscurity after Willie gets his show canceled yet again.
Wowowillie is Revillame’s umpteenth noontime show, and he’s both the producer and main host. No doubt he handpicked all of his female co-hosts, but recently some of them have already gotten the show on the news.
Last Feb. 28, Willie reportedly scolded Ethel Booba and Ate Gay for being unprofessional in the “Mini-Concierto” segment of the show, where the co-hosts try to impress judges with talent and impressive costumes.
The two were bitter over not winning, and took Willie’s jokes like he meant it. He called Ethel out for copying Anne Curtis’ wet birthday performance, to which she replied, “Ano ito? Bakit mo kami ikino-compare doon? We’re talking about talent, not singit. Come on!” She also apparently shouted at him backstage.
Willie said that his comment was purely to entertain the audience. “Style ba ‘yan? Ginagaya mo lang si Anne Curtis eh… Wala, ginagaya lang si Anne Curtis. Kasi ‘yung suot niya sa ‘ASAP,’ may shower pa. Hindi niyo kaya ‘yon. Huwag kayong mag-ilusyon.”
He later dared both Booba and Nora Aunor’s impersonator to resign, stating that they should have some debt of gratitude for getting on the show in the first place.
