  • ate-gayAte Gay will no longer return to “Wowowillie” after leaving Willie Revillame’s noontime show last week. Apparently, he felt slighted when new co-hosts Cacai Bau­tista and Joy Viado took his usual place as the finale act of the show’s mini-concierto segment. “Kasi lagi ako’ng huli, di ba?… E ano naman kung mauna ko o mahuli? Hindi naman ako magagalit. Hindi kasi ako sinabi­han ng staff. Ayoko lang… dapat sinabihan ako para handa ako,” the Nora Aunor impersonator, whose real name is Gil Morales, explained.

    Did the entry of the two ladies in the show make him insecure? “Hindi naman ako naiinsecure kung sino ang nauuna o nahuhu­li. Ako ang nag-suggest na kunin si Cacai pero isinama na ni Willie si Joy,” Ate Gay said. He clarified that he had no hard feelings against Willie but he believed that some members of Willie’s staff did not particularly like him.

    “Walang kinalaman dito si Wil­lie Revilliame. Mahal ko si kuya at mahal ko ang ‘Wowowillie’. Ang sa akin lang ‘wag palabasin na lu­maki ulo ko,” Ate Gay said.
    Jay Montelibano, business unit head of Willie’s Wil Productions, said Ate Gay left the show on his own volition.

    “He the one who left the show. I was telling him nga and the manager, Freddie, na regardless na you’re the last, if you’re good you’ll shine… Sabi nga sa ‘kin ni Freddie minsan nga talagang ga­nun siya. He can be emotional at madamdamin,” Jay said.

    When Ate Gay did not show up for work the day after the in­cident, Jay thought the co-host had made up his mind.

    “That would show signs of un­professionalism. So for me sabi niya nung hindi na siya papasok, well that would be his decision,” he said. Joy and Cacai, on the other hand, supported the statement of the show’s management.

    “Di ko alam. Wala akong alam diyan e. Pero sinabi naman ng maaga na ganito ang sequenc­ing!” Joy said. Both Joy and Cacai said they hope Ate Gay bears no ill will to­wards them.

    “We grew up in theater e so para sa amin ang orientation sa  amin we don’t see each other as competition. We help each other,” Cacai said.

    “Ewan ko nga sa kanya e ewan ko sa kanya. Pero sa amin ni Ca­cai masaya lang kami kumakan­ta. Sa akin it doesn’t matter kung ako ang number one number two o last,” Joy added.

    Aside from Ate Gay, co-host Arci Munoz has likewise left the show to concentrate on the new TV5 series “Undercover”, in which she will star opposite Derek Ram­say.
