Enzo, the Make-A-Wish Boy Turns Down the Barefoot Contessa

Too little, too late. How easy is that?

I don’t blame Enzo and his family one bit. I think learning to swim with the dolphins sounds waaay more fun than hanging out with that snooty dishrag, Ina Garten.

Yeah. No, thanks. Photo: TMZ

via TMZ:

“You’ll recall … Enzo — a 6-year-old with cancer — wanted to cook a meal with Ina, but she couldn’t find the time.

After TMZ broke the story, Ina took lots of heat.  So Monday night she called Enzo’s family and offered for them to come to the Food Network for a cookout.

Enzo’s dad Adrian tells us … the ship has sailed:  “I don’t want to put my son through all these emotions.  We’re better off just leaving everything the way it is.”

As TMZ previously reported — Enzo’s new wish to swim with dolphins is already in the works, and Adrian tells us it will be fulfilled in August.”

Enzo, we’re all pulling for you!  Can’t wait to see pictures of you with the sweet dolphins!

Ina Garten, The Barefoot Contessa is too busy for the kid with cancer. **UPDATE**

BLEH, is right.

This bitch.  Honestly, this is just one more reason for my left eye to start throbbing from the cold, steel rod that is named Ina Garten.

 

Really, Ina??

Snippy is TOTALLY judging Ina Garten.

**UPDATE**

Via TMZ, it seems Ina Garten WILL meet with the 6-year old cancer patient named Enzo, who asked to make a meal with the chef via The Make A Wish Foundation.

“Garten’s rep released a statement explaining how the Food Network chef only “became aware of Enzo’s story this weekend” …. and insists she will be calling the 6-year-old later today.”

Oh, uh-huh.  Odd that the snooty East Hamptons chef is just now hearing about it, but her people (?) turned Enzo down TWICE.  Funny how a Facebook and media blitz of a bitchslap with change someone’s mind, isn’t it?

Snippy is judging you, Ina.  FYI.

Seems Snooty von Hassenswert (look it up) just cannot be bothered meeting with a six-year old boy who has requested TWICE to meet with the FoodNetwork Chef.  Yeah, twice.  Little Enzo, it seems would watch The Barefoot Contessa with his mom while resting in bed due to his struggle with terminal Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

via TMZ:

“M.A.W. approached Garten with the wish last year … but at the time, she was unable to meet with Enzo due to a book tour.  The organization urged Enzo to pick another wish, but he told them he wanted to wait until she becomes available.

We’re told the organization went back to Ina this year … but her team responded with a “definite no” … once again, citing scheduling conflicts.

A member of Enzo’s family says the 6-year-old is heartbroken … and asked parents, “Why doesn’t she want to meet me?

If that doesn’t break your heart, you don’t have one and your name is INA GARTEN.  Instead little Enzo is taking lessons to swim with dolphins.  Bless his heart.
