After the hullabaloo broke out last week concerning Garten’s rejection of face time with a 6-year-old Make-A-Wish leukemia patient, we considered taking back our earlier defense of the Barefoot Contessa as “the sweetest woman in the world.” But now we don’t have to! According to ABC News, Garten will be able to make time for the kid after all. Garten defended herself by claiming she receives 100 requests a month from charitable causes and can’t answer them all. Which brings up Gawker’s earlier question: Should Make-A-Wish get to hold celebrities hostage to public opinion until they agree to hang out with sick kids? What do you think? [ABC News, Gawker]
