WilTime Bigtime Host Willie Revillame is throwing his support anew for the Villar family, this time for senatorial aspirant Cynthia Villar and reelectionist congressman Mark Villar.
To recall, Revillame was one of the staunchest endorsers of the presidential bid of Senator Manny Villar during the 2010 presidential election. He was with almost all the major campaign sorties of Sen. Villar all over the country. Revillame was with Mrs. Villar when she filed her certificate of candidacy for senator at the Commission of Elections (Comelec) office in Intramuros, Manila on Tuesday (Oct. 2).
“Hindi naman natapos ang suporta ko sa Villar family noong 2010. Ika nga, walang iwanan. They have been very supportive of me, sinusuklian ko naman rin ng suporta ang kanilang kabaitan. Isa pa, I really believe in the advocacies of Mrs. Villar. Andami ng natulungan ng kanyang mga livelihood programs,” says Willie.
Camille, the daughter of the senator and Mrs. Villar, is also one of the co-hosts of Willie in his television show WilTime BigTime on TV5.
Mrs. Villar, on the other hand, is also very thankful for Willie’s support. “Natutuwa ako that he took time out of his busy schedule to be with me, my family and supporters when I filed my certificate of candidacy. Naging kaibigan na talaga sya ng aming pamilya. We are here to support each other.”
Willie adds that many television viewers and audience are also aware of the advocacies of Mrs. Villar, particularly the women and overseas Filipino workers, whose families have even been beneficiaries themselves.
Villar-owned Camella Homes have also given away numerous units of houses and lots in Willie’s TV shows, from Wowowee then until the present WilTime BigTime. Mrs. Villar announced, during lunch with her supporters after her CoC filing, that four houses and lots will again be given away for the anniversary of WilTime BigTime.
Even billiards legends—Efren ‘Bata’ Reyes, Ronnie Alcano, Django Bustamante and Dennis Orcollo—threw their support behind Mrs. Villar’s senatorial bid. Reyes, in particular, also endorsed the presidential bid of Sen. Villar in 2010.
Revillame, Reyes, and the late comedian Dolphy were the “three kings— “King of Noontime Game Show”, “King of Billiards” and “King of Comedy”—who helped out Sen. Villar in 2010. Now the two kings are out to support the Sen. Villar’s queen, Mrs. Hanep Buhay herself.
