According to the official statement, the TV host apologized and the kapamilya network has accepted it. Although it’s not mentioned if Willie will return to Wowowee and when but according to reports, the controversial noontime show host will be back after three months of rest.
Here is the official statement released by ABS-CBN:
ABS-CBN management and Willie Revillame pushed through with their scheduled talk yesterday afternoon.
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.
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.
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.
