Add Jobert Sucaldito to the list of Willie Revillame's enemies as Revillame in his noontime show Wowowee threatened to resign if the management of ABS-CBN would retain Sucaldito's services.
This came about as Sucaldito remarked in his (or its?) radio program that the segment "Willie of Fortune" should not feature those students who are barely passing in school or those who have an average of 75% - 79%. Sucaldito said something to the effect of "dapat hindi sinasali ang mga estudyanteng bobo"
Not surprisingly, and probably due to menopause, Revillame did not like this and in turn issued an ultimatum to his mother studio to remove Jobert immediately.
Without knowing (or nor do I care) of Sucaldito's preference for president, I think it is safe to assume that Sucaldito is probably pulling for Noynoy Aquino just because of his affiliation with Kris Aquino, and Revillame as we all know is a die hard Villar supporter so it is not outside the realm of possibility that this is politically motivated.
Willie probably wants to see how much influence does he really have in ABS CBN. Just staying true to his egotistical character.
Sad to say, if this is not diffused early, Sucaldito might find himself without a job in the next few days. I'm not sure if ABS-CBN is willing to call Revillame's bluff or they could afford to, because whether I admit it or not, Wowowee is one of the station's moneymakers, particularly among TFC subscribers.
