It seems like all the bad publicity has gotten to Barefoot Contessa host Ina Garten because she is now agreeing to meet with little Enzo, who chose to cook with the celeb chef as part of Make A Wish Foundation.
Garten’s rep says she only “became aware of Enzo’s story this weekend,” despite reports claiming she denied the request twice in the last year.
Garten plans to call the boy later today. Enzo had requested to cook a meal with the celeb chef because he often watched her while resting in bed with his mom. Enzo is battling leukemia.
The rep insists, “[Ina] looks forward to inviting him to spend some time with her at the Food Network studios.”
This is great to hear! I hope Enzo is just as excited as he was when originally making the wish.
Can Ina Garten make up for the bad publicity with finally fulfilling the boy’s wish?
