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.
“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.
