Willie Revillame to quit showbiz?

Controversial host Willie Revillame made an announcement on “Wil Time Bigtime” on Tuesday night that he will decide about the show’s future on January 5, 2013.

“Mag-a-announce na ho ako ng desisyon ko sa buhay kung ako’y magtutuloy pa sa programang ito,” Revillame said. “Kung walang ganito, kung walang programa, sa’n kayo pupunta? Pumunta kayo sa mga ibang programa na matutulungan kayo.”

The veteran TV host urged the program’s performer and staff to scout for a job. Willie apparently did it so they will not get surprised when January 5 comes, the day he referred to as his “last day” on the show.

“Talagang i-a-announce ko na kung ano ang gusto kong gawin. Basta magmula ngayon, enjoy lang tayo. Kalimutan niyo muna ‘yan,” he said.

“Hindi ko alam kung aabutin pa ako ng January 5,” the controversial entertainer added.

Multiple web sources said TV5 executives already knew about Willie’s plans.
