Joey de Leon and Willie Revillame were both present at the first-ever Supreme To The Extreme Award of Philippine Star last night, October 17, at the Embassy Super Club.
It was also there that the two TV hosts-comedians made up. When Willie Revillame was called to receive the Televisionary Award, he shared the trophy with Joey de Leon during his thank-you speech, “I would like to share this award to a supreme talent, supreme icon, my idol, Mr. Joey de Leon. I share this award [with] you.” said Willie.
“Tito Joey! Alam n’yo, lambingan lang naman namin yung sa TV, lambingan lang namin yun. Alam n’yo, tinulungan ako ng taong ‘yan nagsisimula pa lang ako. Ako ang sidekick niya sa pelikulang Barbie. Kinuha rin nila ako ni Vic Sotto sa pelikulang Sam and Miguel. Akala n’yo, ganoon lang, nag-aaway kami, hindi ho, yun ay patutsadahan lang, lambingan. Si Mr. Joey de Leon, I admire this guy so much. Maliit pa lang ho ako, nasa telebisyon na siya. Siya ang ginagaya ko. Tito Joey!” added Willie.
After a couple of funny exchanges between the two, Joey de Leon joined Willie on stage. “Pasalamat tayo kay Tim at sa Supreme. Tama ang sabi ni Willie, mga tuksuhan lang ‘yan. Kaya lang, yung dalawang co-hosts mo [to Willie], paliwanag muna nila kung bakit nakikiiyak sa ‘yo?” cracked Joey to which Willie responded, “Alam n’yo naman kami, artista! Ikaw nga ang nagturo sa akin niyan. Pero alam mo, hindi ba na-suspend ako, pero noong na-suspend ka, nakidalamhati rin ako!”
Meanwhile, Embassy bar owner Tim Yap was proud of what transpired. “Sabi nila, sa Embassy puro away, that’s not true! Embassy puro peace! Unity, friendship and love!” remarked Tim.
