A few days ago rumor has it that TV5 declined to renew Willie Revillame's contract with them since he allegedly demanded a hefty sum of money for the renewal!
And now, Willie shoots down the rumor by saying he is no longer renewing his contract for "Wowowillie" with the Kapatid network.
This is what Willie said:
"Ang last day of my contract ay October 15. Maybe October 12 will be the last show ng Wowowillie."
Willie said that he will be taking a break from his showbiz commitments for a few months, a year, or even longer:
“So, hindi po para malungkot. Ganyan talaga ang buhay. Kasi kailangan ko rin ng time."
Willie also revealed that he submitted a resignation letter last May 17:
"Yun lang po para matapos na ang haka-haka."
TV5 released the following statement on his resignation:
"We respect the decision of Mr. Willie Revillame to retire upon the expiry of his contract with TV5. We wish him well in his new pursuits."
Do you think there is truth to the rumors?
