    I love her show. I've learned a few kitchen tricks from her.

    She sucks. She turned down a sick boys request for cooking because she said she was too busy. She received backlash so the Mom of the boy took her son to swim with dolphins because he was making a bucket list. People threw out her cook books and stopped watching her tv show. Now the little fire hydrant is trying to make a comeback, but she failed to reach her former success. Don't know how Jeffrey fucks her, must roll her around in flour and look for the wet spot!

    My husband likes her program. I'm not into any of the cooking shows, but he watches a lot of them. So did my late partner.

    Actually, there's a very specific way that wish granting organizations are supposed to go about requesting meetings with celebrities. The organization did not follow proper procedure, which is why the application never made it Ina.

    Getting these types of things done requires a lot of paperwork that's done properly, otherwise you don't rise to the top of the list. It's kind of ludicrous for people to get angry at her over something that she never even knew about. If the organization had actually put for the effort to file properly, then I'm sure Ina would have met the child. They eventually did interact when she did find out.

    It's just silly to blame the celebrity. When your sick kid wants to meet beyonce it's not like you call beyonce on her cell phone to arrange that. Most celebrities wake up in the morning and get told what their going to be doing that day.

    Thanks for clearing that up, Dekiruman. It sounded out of character. And you're right. Just because you're in the public eye doesn't mean that you're required to be available for any sick kid. Though it is sad. Glad she was able to help the kid.

    Not cleared up that was her damage control she did it for her own salvation after the bad press. She, her people first sent him and email that she was too busy, then when it really started to hit her pocket book they/her changed their decision.
