MTRCB summons 'Wowowillie' anew

“Wowowillie” is in trouble again.  The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) has summoned executives of the TV5 show for a hearing on Monday, April 22 after its deputies and Facebook netizens complained about the skimpy outfits and alleged excessive flesh exposure on the part of the program’s female dancers in its April 16 episode.
 
MTRCB Chair Atty. Toto Villareal informed Yahoo! Philippines OMG! in a text message that “a dancer  was practically exposing her large breasts for around eight minutes with several others skimpily dressed.”
 
Villareal added in his text that only the nipples remained unseen.   
 
The MTRCB posted part of these messages in its Twitter account.
 
This is not the first time MTRCB has summoned “Wowowillie.”   
 
A month ago, Villareal  ordered TV5 officials to undergo a  gender sensitivity seminar after Wowowillie host Willie Revillame openly castigated former host Ethel Booba for  reportedly raising her voice after he joked about what she wore in a segment of the show.
 
Yahoo! Philippines OMG! is still trying to reach TV5 for comments.

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician.
