UPDATE: Barefoot Contessa (Finally) Agrees to See Make-A-Wish Kid
As an update to an earlier post this morning, make-a-wishes really do come true -- they just take time and maybe a little bit of bad publicity.
TMZ has reported that Ina Garten, the Barefoot Contessa, has (finally) agreed to meet Enzo, the 6-year-old with leukemia whose request to the Make-A-Wish Foundation was to cook a meal with the Food Network celeb he likes to watch on TV.
Garten recently denied his request -- twice -- due to scheduling conflicts. Now, her rep says she only "became aware of Enzo's story this weekend" and will be calling him today.
