Is Willie Revillame Being Kicked Out By TV5 Or Is He Resigning Voluntarily?

WONDER WHERE Willie Revillame will be going if it’s true that TV5 has decided not to renew his contract with them. To think TV5 spent millions recently in renovating their Delta Theatre studio just to accommodate Willie’s noontime show.

We heard Willie is getting P70 million a month from TV5. For its renewal, he’s demanding that his fee be upped to P90 million a month. TV5 management under its new prexy, Noel Lorenzana, decided not to bite since the show is not rating high anyway. Why would they pay so much for a show that doesn’t deliver the expected ratings?

Willie reportedly didn’t take this good-naturedly and decided to resign right away. So where would he go now? He definitely can’t go to GMA-7 which is “Eat Bulaga” country and ABS-CBN no longer wants to take him back.

Willie’s camp denied the veracity of these reports, saying things are still okay between and TV5. Well, anyway, even if they were true, he’s now quite well off and can afford not to work anymore. He already has beautiful mansions, new buildings, yachts, an airplane and a helicopter. He has enough in his coffers to last him a lifetime, even if he remains jobless for the rest of his life.
