Kapuso TV host Willie Revillame dedicated a few minutes of his show last Friday to pay tribute to who he considers one of the pillars of the showbiz industry.
The news about the shows of Manahan being axed on TV 5 after one season has reached the television host and he wants to pay it forward to his longtime TV director.
Recently, Manahan was very vocal about his disappointment after the shows ‘Sunday Noontime Live’ bid goodbye on air.
“Bago ang lahat, gusto ko lang batiin ang isa sa mga taong nirerespeto ko. One of the pillars, of course, dito sa Philippine television,” Willie said.
Willie then went on by sharing his experiences with the veteran director. Manahan used to be the director of Willie’s Kapamilya show ‘Wowowee’.
“Naging director ko po sa Wowowee, star-builder, respetado, he’s a dignified man. Ito ho, sana makasama kita muli, Direk. Napakalaki ng respeto ko sa ’yo,” the TV host said.
Willie said that Manahan was supportive to him back then even if the TV host decided to leave the Kapamilya network.
“Naalala ko nga nung nagkasama tayo sa Wowowee, lagi kang supportive sa lahat ng desisyon na ginagawa ko. Saka, there was a time na gumagawa ako ng sulat na nagpaalam na ako diyan, sinamahan mo ako, tinulungan mo ako sa mga tamang English, tamang grammar ko,” he added.
Willie then said that the door is open for Manahan should he consider working for the TV host again.
“Direk, halika na rito, samahan mo na kami rito, Mr. Johnny Manahan. Mr. M,” he added. (TDT)
