After an indefinite leave, it is now an indefinite break for Willie Revillame. With his contract with ABS-CBN still intact, Willie Revillame and the network giant agreed on an indefinite break from the noontime show, Wowowee.
Here is the statement provided by the ABS-CBN management:
“ABS-CBN and Willie agreed that he takes an indefinite break effective immediately, but his contract obligations with ABS-CBN hold. This disallows him to perform similar work for any person or entity in direct competition with ABS-CBN. Willie has realized his mistake and apologized to ABS-CBN management for his outburst on air in Wowowee on May 4, 2010, and his failure to report to work since May 5, 2010. ABS-CBN management has accepted Willie’s apology. At some point, ABS-CBN management and Willie will discuss what will be in the best interest of the viewing public. Meanwhile, Wowowee will continue to provide entertainment and inspiration to Filipinos worldwide” .
In his letter dated May 12, 2010, Willie has requested the ABS-CBN management to release him from the contract with the network.
