Wowowee Rumors - Janelle, Willie, Luningning



Why did Janelle Jamer Quit from Wowowee?
Rumors are circling that the true underlying reason for the resignation of Janelle Jamer from Wowowee is because of a romantic relationship with host Willie Revillame gone bitter. Chismis goes on to spread that Janelle Jamer and Willie Revillame were already live-in partners at Ferndale Homes in Quezon City. Deeper rumors go on to say that during quarrels with live-in Willie Revillame, Janelle Jamer had a back-up relationship going on with Luis Alandi. Furthermore, insiders say that jealousy from both parties may have been the trigger for calling it quits.

MANILA, Philippines -- Insiders from the ABS-CBN show “Wowowee” are talking.
There’s more than meets the eye in the resignation of co-host Janelle Jamer from the leading noontime show in the country, they claim.
Despite Janelle’s denials in television interviews that she was pregnant with lead host Willie Revillame’s child, still these reliable sources who spoke on condition of anonymity were insistent that there was something going on between the two.
If not pregnant, Janelle was still alleged to have a romantic relationship with Willie—the kind they don’t hide in the “Wowowee” backstage but deny in public, our sources said.
The “couple” had been keeping their relationship under wraps due to Willie’s still unresolved annulment case filed by his estranged wife Liz Almoro, one insider claimed. But their relationship was definitely “real.”
Another source claimed Janelle could not keep up with the pressure mixing work with romance, after alleged fights on the “Wowowee” set. One cause of these fights was alleged jealousy on both ends. Janelle was upset that Willie had been eyeing another co-host Roxanne Guinoo while Willie had been incensed that Janelle was reportedly dating actor John Prats.
Janelle’s solution: leave the show permanently and focus on her singing career which she plans to launch in the United States. According to our sources, the plan was obviously drastic and was definitely tied to her alleged relationship with Willie. If so, what made her take the drastic leap?
If there was no relationship at all, why would Janelle sacrifice her stint in the show, which has made her a household name worldwide, and become a struggling singer in the most difficult entertainment market in the world? Our sources say, she is not a Regine Velasquez, Pops Fernandez, Kuh Ledesma, or Zsa Zsa Padilla to make that kind of dare. Obviously, it was something deeper than a mere career shift, they added.
With her departure, “Wowowee” of course will remain standing. But will this mean another bombshell set to explode?
It’s up to Janelle, the sources said.

What happened to Luningning?
Recently (June 2007), the absence of Luningning on stage of Wowowee has been noticed by viewers. In the meantime, ASF dancer Rovie "Mariposa" has replaced Luningning for the "Pasalog" portion of the show. Fans are now wondering what has happened to Luningning. Why is she absent? Did she quit? Is she sick? Is she pregnant? Rumors are circling that she is currently ill, as Willie Revillame stated on the show. Although she has been looking a bit thick around the midsection, there are no solid reports that she is pregnant.


Wowowee Suspended?
The Junniper / Juniper Incident, where the pink wardrobe of new star Eda Nolan, of the show "Gokada Go," slipped almost exposing her breasts, is the issue regarding the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board’s (MTRCB) decision to suspend the show for a few days. However, ABS-CBN filed an appeal and so the show Wowowee will continue to air until the appeal is acted upon.

*******
ABS-CBN’s toprated noontime show, “Wowowee,” will be temporarily off the air for three days, as a result of a suspension issued by a three-member committee of the MTRCB composed of Edmund Sicam, Mark Castrodes and Paulino Cases. One of the reasons for suspension is wardrobe malfunction. New star Eda Nolan (who appears in “Walang Kapalit”) was dancing in the May 12 telecast when one of her breasts got exposed.
The network said this is not true but a review of the video tape of that particular show confirmed there really was indeed indecent exposure. Another reason was host Willie Revillame making some “indecent remarks” in the May 26 telecast. In one segment, he introduced dancer Luningning as “heto na ang gamot sa malalambot.” No definite dates have been scheduled for the show’s suspension, but ABS execs say they will appeal the case and the show will continue airing while their appeal is still being acted upon.

*******
Whenever Wowowee gets involved in real or imagined trouble, the ratings jump up. And with the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board’s latest decision on an incident that happened in the show recently, host Willie Revillame comments, “It will improve ratings.”
Willie was perky during the awarding of the Platinum Award for the Wowowillie CD and the Gold Award for the Dadada Dododo CD by Star Records’ Anabelle Regalado Borja and Nixon Sy. The awards were conferred to him and composer Lito Camo.
Wowowee people tried to correct the accident as soon as possible. But MTRCB’s Ed Sicam claims there was negligence. “It lasted 30 to 40 seconds.” But people in the studio said there was a mad rush to correct the problem as soon as it was detected. To protest the suspension, lolas who make up a large portion of Willie’s fan base are planning to storm the MTRCB office on Timog Avenue.
“Yes, Wowowee has received the letter from MTRCB, and the network is making an appeal. And as we go through the appeal process, Wowowee will continue to air,” reads the statement issued by ABS-CBN Corporate Communications head Bong Osorio about the three-day suspension slapped by MTRCB to Wowowee. The trouble originated from an alleged *** exposure by Gokada Go! actor Eda Nolan. During a dance number, her tube top slipped down. MTRCB claims there was actual *** exposure. To find out the truth, Buzzstation sought out Eda during the Gokada Go! shoot last Saturday and she vigorously denied it. She stated, “It’s true my tube slipped, but nothing showed as I was wearing a skin-toned bra and nipple tape!”
About the tagline referring to Luningning as “gamut sa malalambot,” Willie has made a public apology for the statement. He told Buzzstation he had been uttering the phrase for one month and it was only recently that MTRCB noticed and complained. (I told you somebody’s goofing out there.) Production manager Cynthia “Mama Bear” Jordan explained it was not meant to offend as the phrase is part of a forthcoming commercial endorsement for an energy drink. Mama Bear is an experienced and well-loved television pro known for her high professional standards. Her leadership of Wowowee with Cory Vidanes, Johnny “Mr. M” Manahan and Harold Nueva has solidified its position as the country’s number one daily noontime show.

Excellent article. Wowowee is a great show. The show hosts and also the ASF dancers are very popular, and as you say the rumours and gossip just serve to improve the ratings.

Wowowee is boring without the cash. Having a one man show with trying-hard sense of humor is making me sick.

Willy is helpful but of course not by his own volition. It was ABS-CBN who used his highprofile womanizing issues.

Willy, I hope he has the balls to be a real man, a responsible man. He must help his very self first before he could help other Filipinos.

Wowowee is a wholesome show and we love to watch it here in Florida Panhandle. We hope Willie will stop his humiliating joke to some guest and coworker and then say it was just a joke. Looks like his popularity went to his head. If they want a certain contestant to win the game, then chose contestant of the same level of talent.

Without the good looking asf dancers and cohost, Wowowee is a boring show.

I hope Willie Revillamen of Wowowee will never come back to the show, he is sobrang mayabang, he can't sing. Randy Santiago is more funny and Randy could carry a tune, he should be the host of this show. With Willie lots of people I know are now turned off of Wowowee. I Willie will come back, I will cut of my subscription and move to GMA and watch It-Bulaga instead.

TFC subscribers, wake-up and don't tolerate Willie's negative attitudes. Refrain from giving him gifts. It's better to donate those gifts to poor filipinos. I used to like him and watch Wowowee show, but got disappointed due to his bad actions and sexy girls dancing like in exotic club, at noontime? It's disgusting. You call this show wholesome? Hell no. I switched to Eat Bulaga, and found out it's way better than W. And, the 2 million pesos he claimed someone left it at his house? I doubt it. I believed it was a hoax to gain sympathy from viewers, and of course to raise ratings. Wowowee show exploits everybody. Willie doesn't know how to sing, especially when he sings love songs? It's out of tune. Sa world tour ay kumakanta siya ng out of tune na madamdaming songs para maantig ang damdamin ng mga TFC. Of course, TFC subscribers will get carried away because most of them are homesick. I ain't trying to put Willie down but he must be stop. He never learn his lessons from his mistakes.

Why put down Willie? His origins are from modest means. I am a military retiree who loves to watch his show. He has come from poverty and practically on his own enthralled the people of the Philippines. As a veteran with a fatal disease, I think Willie has done more for the Philippines than previous Presidents who seem to think the Philippine economy is their own bank accounts. I would very much like to meet him and his family. Do not say what you know nothing about. The man has worked hard; he is humble and he has helped so many. Shame on you for degrading such an icon.

Well, Ms. or Mr. Anonymous, Im a recent TFC subscriber and I LOVE Wowowee. I have actually recommended this to many people and they all seem to have fallen under the wowowee spell as well as I have. My family and I are planning our vacation trip back home, and our first stop will be the Wowowee studio. & We are of course planning to give him tshirts as he openly stated his preference. It may only be 4 months since I became a faithful viewer, but so far, I hadnt seen any "negative attitude", other than his blast on that disrespectful journalist. Im soooo sick of reading about the lack of clothing material on the dancers. Are you kidding me? Have you not seen it in movies, asap, or other shows??

REALLY!!! Why cant people see the light and quit pointing out trivial matter. Is his show not helping feed the poor, is the show not helping to treat the sick, is the show not giving pilipinos second chance in life??

If his that disrespectful, there would be alot more hateful people like yourself, but rather than making this how a number one show of all the philippines.

AND FYI, Ms/Mr Anonymous, your whole paragraph was devoted to put Willie down. Get A Life!

Willie is a good host of wowowee. Without him in this noontime show, it is boring and seems lifeless. Nobody can replace him and can do better than him. People are jealous because he is popular and
love by the Filipinos. His good ideas help to maintain the top rating of his show. The management should not listen to Jobert( He is not popular and just want to put other people down). Jobert should ask himself if he was able to help poor and less fortunate Filipinos. Never heard about his good deeds. Better stop doing that to Willie. I do not like him to campaign for Villar but that is his right so
it is ok. I am happy Noynoy won . I am still Willie's avid fan.
Please ABS-CBN let him back ....
