Ina Garten Will Make Wish Come True For Cancer-Stricken Boy

Filed under: InspirationSad SadFoodCharityCancer

Ina Garten Make-A-Wish

After snubbing the Make-A-Wish Foundations request for the Food Network star to have a cooking session with a cancer-stricken 6-year-old boy, Ina Garten has FINALLY agreed to make Enzo Pereda's wish come true.

A spokesperson for the Barefoot Contessa star, said:

"Ina became aware of Enzo's story this weekend and will be calling him today. She looks forward to inviting him to spend some time with her at the Food Network studios."

Hey, better late than never, right?

It sounds like Ina had her reasons though as the spokesperson's statement continued:

"Ina receives approximately 100 requests a month to support charitable causes that deeply affect peoples' lives. She contributes both personally and financially on a regular basis to numerous causes, including to Make-A-Wish Foundation. Sadly, it's of course not possible to do them all. Throughout her life, Ina has contributed generously to all kinds of important efforts and she will continue to do so."

The boy was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia diagnosis three years ago and frequently watches Ina while laying in bed.

Despite his wish being refused TWICE in the past, his mom insists, "He STILL loves 'The Contessa.'"

So much so, in fact, that when given the chance to change his wish after it seemed slim that the chef would ever have time to meet him, he said "I will wait."

Aww! Ina, we hope you realize what a truly special fan you have here. He waited to meet you even when he wasn't even sure how much time he would have left to wait!

We hope Enzo's experience with Ina is everything and more than he ever wanted!

Good Actors Ca$h In On Transformers 3

WTF are they thinking???

Director Michael Bay has taken to his official website to give his seven whole fans an update on the pre-production of Transformers 3, and you'll never guess the actual talent he's landed!!!

Hey, it's been a long time since I've posted. Just been a little busy.

Transformers 3 has been going very well. We are going to shoot in LA, Chicago, Washington DC, Florida, Texas, Africa, Moscow, and China. On the talent front, we just locked in Frances McDormand and John Malkovich. Both amazing actors I've always wanted to work with. We also just got Ken Jeong, he is the super funny actor stuck in the trunk from Hangover and the Doctor from Knocked Up.

We start shooting pre-shoots in about one month.

I also was at a Ferrari charity event this week raising money for a hospital being built by Ferrari in Haiti. I announced that night the newest Autobot to join Transformers: the Ferrari 458 Italia.

I also want to thank everyone on this site that donated to the Make -A-Wish charity. We raised $20,000 which I will personally be matching. This is a great charity where they make wishes come true for kids who are very ill. We have had many Kids from Make-A-Wish visit us on our Transformers sets and this time we will be posting video of their visits on Transformers 3.

Michael Bay

Wow!! We guess the recession has hit EVERYONE hard!!

There's no way John Malkovich or Frances McDormand would be caught dead in this crapfest unless they were in desperate need of some $$$$!!

Hopefully this one won't be as big a mess as Transformers 2!! We could seriously feel our brains MELTING as we sat through all 36 hours of that disaster!!

What do U think?? Are U excited for Transformers 3??
