ABS-CBN, inilaglag ng sariling tauhan sa kaso laban kay Willie Revillame

FAIR AND SQUARE ang taun-taong pa-Christmas party ng Eat Bulaga sa kanilang staff at talents. Like any other party, whatever prize at stake is automatically forfeited ‘pag wala ang tao whose name is called at raffle time.

Tulad na lang ni Allan K na, ayon kay Ms. Malou Choa-Fagar, makatlong beses yatang tinawag for the major prizes, pero forfeited ‘yon dahil may hosting job ang hitad.

Tanong ko kay Tita Malou, ‘pag ang mga pangalan ba nina Tito at Vic Sotto at Joey de Leon ang nabubunot, idino-donate ba nila ang kanilang mga premyo? Hindi raw. In the spirit of fun, even the three major hosts—or shall we say, the pillars of Eat Bulaga—are like everyone else who get just as thrilled.

One thing’s consistently nice about EB’s yearly Christmas parties, nagpupuyat kung nagpupuyat din daw si Mr. Tony Tuviera who never leaves the event until it’s bye-bye time, hitsurang abutin ng madaling-araw.

UPON COLLEAGUE ED Littlefield’s invitation, sumama kami en route to Angeles City, Pampanga kung saan selebrasyon ng kanyang long-time friend, one named Cynthia Sol. All that I remember of her, minsan na siyang isinama ni Ed sa Startalk years ago.

Sixty fifth birthday pala ‘yon ng kung tawagi’y Mamita, Mommy Cynthia o Tita Cynthia: her forms of address are just as many as her talents. Owner of the Meanwhile Bar & Lounge situated right behind the Casino Filipino, dating dancer si Tita Cynthia sa Clover Theatre before she got discovered by LVN Studios.

Her biggest break though came when she worked as a performer abroad, age 17 when Tita Cynthia became a byword in several parts of Asia within the entertainment circle, thus, she was labelled the “The Dancing Queen”.

Hindi na nagtaka ang inimbitahang press to her lounge as they bore witness to Tita Cynthia’s still holding on to her monicker sa kabila ng kanyang edad. Was she lying about her age, na nakakaya pang umindak, lumiyad, and most of all, mag-split?!

Married to a British national named Geoff Cole, who stands 6’3” lang naman, the mid-sexagenarian imparts to us an important lesson about life: be happy. Kitang-kita naman ‘yon sa aura ni Tita Cynthia, dressed in 1920’s with a cheerful stance, sticking her tongue out like a teenybopper na bibihira sa kanyang mga kaedad.

Pero keri, ‘teh!

OF LATE, HINDI masyadong nag-iingay ang TV5 except for the continuing legal saga na kinapapalooban ng Willing Willie which—on two occasions—has scored against ABS-CBN sa isyung copyright infringement.

Na-cross-examine na nga ang isang tauhan ng Dos, flatly saying “Hindi!” sa tanong kung may ginaya nga bang segments ang Willing Willie mula sa Wowowee. That being so, wala na nga namang saysay ang nagaganap na pagdinig sa korte, dahil mismong staff ng Dos ang naglaglag sa ipinaglalaban nila.

Isang BUH (Business Unit Head) ng ABS-CBN ang isinalang sa hearing, hindi man lang ba ito binrief ng mga abogado ng istasyon tungkol sa mga posibleng itatanong ng defense counsel? And what to answer lalo’t napaka-basic na ng tanong ng cross-examining lawyer?

Simple lang naman kasi ang argumento. Kinopya nga ba ni Willie Revillame ang mga segment ng Wowowee, at ginamit sa Willing Willie sa TV5? ABS-CBN believes so, but the host himself thinks otherwise.

Sa bandang huli—and this being said repeatedly—sa kasaysayan ng creative thinking, will somebody please come forward and say his idea is entirely original?

NOT HAVING BEEN sworn in yet, pero winelkam na ng Entertainment Press (EnPress) ang inyong lingkod bilang isa sa anim nitong bagong kasapi. Ang naturang grupo, now seven years old, led by Jun Nardo ang nasa likod ng taunang Golden Screen Awards both for TV and movies.

Held at the Baliwag Grill & Restaurant along E. Rodriguez in Quezon City, umulan ng ilang rounds ng pa-raffle. Even its new members were included. Dinagsa rin ‘yon ng ilang celebrities, the last to have left ay si Ms. Malou Choa-Fagar of TAPE, Inc.

Maraming salamat uli sa mga bumubuo ng EnPress sa mainit nilang pagtanggap sa amin. Again, I hope I can be more of an asset to the group than an ass…le, he-he-he!

  1. IS it really not well known in the Philippines that Cynthia Sol / Cole is the owner of a chain of brothels in Hong Kong into which she traffics young girls from around Pampanga? I’m surprised that anyone in even semi-polite society would want to be seen anywhere near her. She should have been locked up years ago and the key thrown away.

  2. ABS-CBN walanghiya sana malugi na kayo at mag sara na ang kumpanya nyo …MGA GAHAMAN….. walang libre sa mundo… lahat ng ginawa nyo babalik sa inyo………… kung maayos mga ugali nyo… leave willie alone!!!!! di nanggagaya si willie alangan naman d nya kakantahin mga songs nya e sa kanya yunnnn…… Back offf buhay nyo ayusin nyo.. kita nyo nagsisimula na karma nyo pilipinas win na win bagsak na sana isa isa ng bagsak lahat ng sa ABS-CBN ………… maiitim na buto !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. e mga kupal pala itong mga tsupamilya na e2 e… bakit di nila ituloy ang wowowee? dahil ba walang artistang makagawa ng kasiyahan sa mga manonood tulad ni willie?
    talagang tutumba ang dos sa singko pag prime-time dahil nasa kanila c willie

  4. Willy is Willy wala ng tatalo sa kayabangan nyan…at sa sobrang hirap ng buhay sa atin ngayon lahat kaya nyang bayaran ang audience makapunta at masabing successful ang show nya…walang utang na loob si willy sa ABS-CBN… wait for your bad karma willy….at wah kang mag drama ng husto ha di na uubra yan…

  5. Bahala na TV5 kay willie, hintayin na lang natin na masuspende o lipat ulit nang istasyon.

    ABS magaling mga researcher nila… kung mangongopya mas maganda
    GMA magaling mag recycle kung anong pumatok sa dos inuulit lang nila… kung mangongopya pang asar lang
    TV5 foreign shows na tagalize

  6. the burden is with abs to prove that willing willie truly “copied” wowowee….and when we say “copied” it means it’s a carbon copy. the concepts may be the same but it’s a different thing. and the result of the cross exam of the abs’ staff is indeed a plus point for willie….i believe, abs should just put a good show or program to compete with willing willie.

  7. When will TV 5 be aired in the States? Miss na miss na namin si Willie. I hope we can see his show here soon. We heard the good reviews and I tried going online to view the full episode but no luck. Can anybody tell me how this can be possible. Good luck,Willie on whatever battles you’ll face in the future. More power on your show.

    • May nag comment in the past that ang kayamanan daw ngayon ni Willie ay hindi daw talaga kang Willie yon, kay Noli daw yon at ipina sabi lang daw ni Willie na sa kanya yon para walang imbestigasyon na mangyayari at may nag comment din na highest taxpayer daw si Willie, paano na lan si Pacquiao na mas malaki pa yata ang income in Manny kung ikumpara kay Willie? Saan galing ang pera ni Willie in just 1 year? Diba Pacquiao was the highest last year and this latest fight he had, he brought home several million DOLLARS not pesos BUT DOLLARS? and multiply that by 50 pesos per dollar?
