Me showing my support of Ina during these trying times.
The Ina Garten scandal continues! After news broke that the beloved cook had refused to visit wee Enzo Pereda as part of a Make-A-Wish request, Ina made an about face and not only called Enzo, but invited him to her set. But guess what? The little punk turned her down! That’s right, after all that — after his family went to the media and complained about Ina’s indifference and their son’s broken heart — they rejected her offer, saying “I don’t want to put my son through all these emotions. We’re better off just leaving everything the way it is.”
These people are awful. If they didn’t want to put their son through all “these emotions,” they shouldn’t have aired their dirty business out in the press. And what sort of “emotions” other than pure JOY and WONDERMENT would come out of letting Enzo visit Ina’s set? So what if she rejected him twice? It’s all very passive-aggressive, and I can’t help but feel that the Peredas are merely out for publicity. Why else would they have leaked this to the media in the first place?
Listen, if Ina Garten comes calling, you do NOT turn her down. I don’t care if you’re a little boy with cancer or not. That would be like adding coffee to chocolate and NOT commenting on the real depth of flavor! It would be like folding egg whites and NOT reminding us that it’s classic French technique. It would be like using saffron and NOT TELLING US THAT SAFFRON IS THE STAMEN OF CROCUSES!
Hmmm… this is all so insidious and crafty — clearly BARBARA LIEBERMAN is behind this!
Full, awful story here (thanks Boop)
