ABS-CBN mum on Willie’s request
By Yahoo! Southeast Asia
ABS-CBN chooses to stay mum on a Willie Revillame’s request to be “released” from the network.
“Even prior to the publication of Willie Revillame’s letter to ABS-CBN in the May 21 column of Ricky Lo in The Philippine Star, a meeting has already been scheduled between Willie and ABS-CBN management next week,” Bong Osorio, head of ABS-CBN Corporate Communications, said in a statement.
ABS-CBN stressed that it “chooses not to comment on his letter until after the meeting.”
“ABS-CBN believes that issues are best resolved when discussed with the parties concerned privately before they are made public,” Osorio said.
Osorio was referring to a letter where Revillame was requesting the TV network to “release him” from his contract, the Philippine Entertainment Portal wrote.
Revillame has gone on an indefinite leave after he threatened to resign from the network if the station decides to keep entertainment reporter Jobert Sucaldito. Sucaldito who also happens to be an ABS-CBN talent, has been very critical of Revillame.
Revillame eventually had enough, declaring through his show Wowowee that he will leave the TV network if they don’t fire Sucaldito.
Two weeks after he left, ABS-CBN has asked actor Robin Padilla to temporarily replace Revillame in the show.
