Robin Padilla to replace Willie Revillame as main host of Wowowee?

ABS-CBN’s Corporate Communications Head Bong Osorio said that an “Idol” is joining the noontime show Wowowee in a special episode scheduled Saturday, May 15.

The buzz is that the said idol is action star Robin Padilla. “Somebody is joining Pokwang, Mariel Rodriguez, Valerie Concepcion, Carmen Soo, Kelly Misa, Isabelle Abiera and Jed Montero in the country’s the top-rating noontime show!,” the statement said.

Main host Willie Revillame has been absent from the show since May 5 after he challenged ABS-CBN management to axe entertainment columnist, The Buzz reporter, and radio host Jobert Sucaldito.
