Ina Garten The Barefoot Contessa Snubs Dying Six-Year-Old’s Wish To Meet Her

6-year-old Enzo, who is diagnosed with life-threatening Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia has one dying wish. He wants to spend and hour or two with his cooking idol, Ina Garten the Barefoot Contessa. The bed-ridden Enzo often watches the celebrity chef’s Food Network show with his mother and wants nothing more than to meet her.

But when the Make-A-Wish Foundation approached Garten to help make Enzo’s dream come true, she turned them down — twice. According to TMZ, a book tour got in the way last year; this year, she simply responded with “a definite no,” using “scheduling conflicts” as an excuse.

Needless to say, Enzo was sadden and heart broken by Garten’s rejection. But M-A-W took the incident in stride, issuing a statement explaining:

“[f]rom time to time, planning for wishes doesn’t turn out as originally envisioned, despite people’s best intentions and efforts throughout the wish-granting process.”

Enzo has since moved on on to a new dream: Swimming with dolphins.

And the award for Bitch of the Year goes to…
