Jennifer Garner: Denied by Barefoot Contessa!

Jennifer Garner: Denied by Barefoot Contessa!

Jennifer Garner and her mother, Patricia Ann English, have some quality bonding time while shopping at the Century City Mall in Los Angeles on Wednesday (December 30).

The 37-year-old Texas-born actress had requested an appearance on one of her favorite food TV shows, Barefoot Contessa. Unfortunately, the star of the show, Ina Garten, turned her down. Jen commented, “I tried to get on Ina‘s show… but eventually she just said, ‘I’m sorry, I only use my real friends on the show.’ I felt like, ‘What are you saying? That we’re not friends? I know everything about you!’”

WHAT DO YOU THINK about Ina snubbing Jennifer Garner?

    Why would Ina Garten have an actress on her cooking show? Doesn’t make sense. Ina is a REAL chef, not a celebrity hanger on. The woman is serious. Also, maybe she doesn’t like Jennifer Garner and was trying to let her down easy.

    Are you for real? People open your eyes Jennifer Garner and her all family is the most down-to-earth celebrities on the planet. I think Ina made herself a huge kick in the ass. If she will invite someone else some popular Hollywood looking actress or whatever to her show I will definetely have an opinion about her.

    How arrogant of Garner to assume that just because she is famous that she could get on any show. If she knows everything about the Ccntessa than she knows that the show is about her family and friends.
    Maybe Garner ,rather than complaining, should have invited the Contessa to her home for lunch. See that is how normal people act..

    Bottomline: It’s Ina’s show ~ it’s up to her ‘if’ she wants to have someone on it or not…IMO, IF those were the words she chose to decline the request, they ARE a little biting/tacky. But, on the other hand, WHY would Jennifer repeat the exchange and further humiliate herself!? Sidenote: I love WATCHING the Ina show (for cooking purposes) but she [along with her husband/and the friends that DO often appear on the show] seem a little snobby/condescending/and wrapped up in their “lah-dee-dah” lifestyles…where perfect food presentation/elaborate homes and grounds/and “connections” to other rich/well-to-do people seem to be the priority. SHEESH, forgive me, but I’d rather share a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with my ‘down-to-earth’ friends in my homey Kitchen!

    Barefoot Contessa only has her real-life friends on her show, it’s one of her staples and she sticks to it, Jennifer Garner is not the only celeb to be turned down by her. Part of her shows theme has always been to cook for her family & friends, it isn’t a celeb sort of show like Martha Stewart, Paula, Rachael Ray and Emril L…

    I usually don’t post on Jennifer Garner threads, but I have to call this girl out bigtime. She may seem all subtle and down to earth…..BUT…
    This girl has made her entire life one big photo-op and it doesn’t matter what state she is in. In Boston the paps who never pap anyone there seem to get photo ops of her on a daily basis, in LA it’s the same thing, day in and day out, with her kids, with her moher in-law when in town and now with her mother. I know that there will be those that defend, but honesty this woman is making sure her kids are living their lives in the publics eyes on a daily basis.

    There are ways to live a life in LA and other places and not have your childrens lives play out in the public, not have daily photos of them.
    She goes to these places and she knows the paps are there and she also knows that they follow her daily moves.

    Many celebs have kids and they make sure that they get to live a pretty private life.

    People, Jen was kidding! You are all so dumb. It’s like the Letterman joke with Oprah. Get with it.

    i think it’s pretty clear jennifer wasn’t offended, and understood that it was ina’s right to say no.

    also, it’s not something random that jennifer requested to go onto the show, she talks about how much she loves cooking and doing martha stewart type stuff all the time in her talk show appearances. she even named her dog after her.
