Try and deny that you don’t get sucked into those Food Network cooking shows.
They’re like crack, you don’t know why you’re watching them, but you just can’t stop.
The Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten, may have a few less watchers these days after she totally ditched a dying boy’s Make-a-Wish Foundation request to cook a meal with her.
According to TMZ, a little boy named Enzo, who is currently being treated for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, was approached by the Make-a-Wish Foundation three years ago about fulfilling his lifelong wish. Enzo said he would love to cook a meal with the Barefoot Contessa because he would watch her show with his mother while he underwent treatment.
Here’s the thing, when the foundation approached Garten, she said she was too busy.
No problem for Enzo, he said he would wait. The kid waited three-years, which is a lot when your being approached by the Make-a-Wish Foundation. The foundation returned to Garten again, asking her to cook a meal with this poor dying kid, and she said no again, stating again that she just didn’t have the time.
This of course left Enzo heartbroken, he told his family “Why doesn’t she want to meet me?”
Because she’s a jerkwad, Enzo. It’s not you.
Since then, the foundation has finally gotten Enzo to make a new wish. Enzo is going to swim with the dolphins. Dolphins are way cooler than evil celebrity chefs anyhow.
