Did Joey and Willie finally call it quits? Was the controversial Louis Vuitton bag which Willie gave as a gift to Joey a proof that they are already indeed in good terms with each other?
TV hosts and comedians, Joey de leon and Willie Revillame, have been exchanging blatant remarks against each other on air ever since the latter’s former show, Wowowee, collided head-on with the other TV network’s noon time show Eat Bulaga.
Obviously, they were trying to compare each other’s show and each one is trying to prove to the audience which noon time TV program receives the higher rating.
In a September 17 episode of Startalk, co-host Lolit Solis handed over a brown paper bag to her fellow host, Joey de leon. Inside the brown paper bag was an expensive Louis Vuitton bag given by the Wil Time Big Time host, Willie Revillame. The said bag was bought in Macau where Willie recently went for a trip with his Wil Time Big Time stuff and friends via Willie’s private jet plane, Wil Sky.
Accordingly, Willie sent an invitation to Joey through his friend Lolit Solis to join with him in Macau. However, the Eat Bulaga’s TV host thought it was some sort of a joke.
“Akala ko kasi nagbibiro, tsaka kagagaling lang naming dun. Kararating lang din namin… Siguro, someday,” said Joey.
In an interview with Joey by PEP last Monday, September 26, the Eat Bulaga host said “Oo, pinasalamatan ko na siya. Maganda, maganda,”
“Ang sabi nga niya, meron din siya. Dalawa raw [binili niya], tig-iisa daw kaming dalawa raw, para maalala ko siya.”
“Sabi ko nga, ‘O, ikaw pa, kahit naman ano, mahirap kang kalimutan!”
Meanwhile, right before the segment ended, Joey again thanked Willie for the gift. He added by saying,
“Uli, Willie, thank you ulit doon sa regalo mo.”
“Maganda, e, dahil may koneksiyon doon sa isang bagay sa akin, e. Thank you, pare,” said Joey.
Joey and Willie are both under the TV 5 Kapatid Network. Joey is the host of the show Celebrity Samurai which airs every Sunday morning while Willie Revillame is the host of Wil Time Big Time.
