ABS-CBN Warned Other Networks Against Willie

ABS-CBN wrote a letter of warning to Channel 7 and Channel 5 not to engage with Willie Revillame a contract, insisting that Willie's contract with ABS-CBN is still binding. Giving Willie a contract will result to legal actions of ABS-CBN.

A report said from ABS-CBN News:

“Nag-iba ang complexion ng case. May threat of a law suit already. So, sabi ni Willie, ‘Sino naman ang channel na makikipag-kontrata sa akin na alam nilang merong asuntong aabutin...’ Sa katapusan ng usapan na ito, malalaman kung may karapatan si Willie o ABS ang may karapatan na ipitin si Willie,” the lawyer said.

Willie seems to be bitter of what ABS-CBN did with his show which really did much. As a fan of Wowowie, I would say that Wowowie has really touched the heart of the people.

However, the more I read about Willie's actions and unacceptance of the disciplinary measures imposed by ABS-CBN, this just show that Willie's popularity has already gotten into his head and is rooting well.

Without judging Willie's personality, people can really see this in his press conference, statements and interviews. In fact, try to check the social network and the net about him and let's see how many comments that are against him and those that are for him.

This will simply tell that the general public have lost their confidence on Willie. Even in the post made earlier made here in Filipino Opinion, there are more people who wants Willie out of Wowowie than those who wants him to stay.

But why in the world ABS-CBN imposed this on Willie?

Here are the following things that I see why ABS-CBN implemented some sanctions on Willie:

1.Willie has been known to make public statements live even against the will of ABS-CBN which placed them (in some cases) under sanctions by MTRCB.
2.Such public statements did not happen just twice. It happened several times already.
3.Willie has clearly threatened his employer ABS-CBN first which is the cause of all these chaos in this issue.
4.Willie despite of some resolutions have the guts of demanding the following things to the company where it show Willie's unreadiness for genuine commitment for ABS-CBN:
Payment of talent fee during the period of the suspension of the talent agreement;
Return of DJ Coki and Ana Feliciano to Wowowee;
Change of program from Wowowee to Wowowin;
Inclusion of Pinoy Big Brother winner Melai as host of the show;
Special ID cards for staff of Wowowee;
Special vehicle access privilege for the TV host in restricted areas within the ABS-CBN compound.
5.Willie lost a significant amount of public trust that can be clearly seen in social networking sites like twitter facebook and blogs.


ABS-CBN have lost their trust on Willie Revillame concerning his professionalism. However, ABS-CBN seems to be trying its best to give him another chance and to fulfill its contract with him, but this time with all those precautionary measures.

Furthermore, the network is at the same time protecting its interest that Willie won't do any further damages to the company.

This has been my first time to see an employee demanding huge things from his employer.

Willie on the other hand is trying his best to free himself from his contract with ABS-CBN. Seems like Willie will never be returning again from the company who gave him a name. So much conflict and pain have been incurred from both sides.
