April Fool Barefoot Contessa
And, if they’re not hospitable we fix the situation immediately. No advertising is recommended, no one passes “GO” and no one gets $200 – you get the picture.
Here’s Enzo, a sweet 6-year-old kid with cancer whose wish is to simply meet and cook with ‘her majesty’ because he’s a huge fan! She blows him off and it’s not until a public backlash that she agrees to meet him.
Here’s the kicker!
Now the family says it’s too late and kicks ‘Her Barefootness’ to the curb because of the snub.
Good for Enzo – he and his family have a ton of class.
Bad for Ina because she’ll feel this PR disaster with a drop in ratings and sales – guaranteed – she lost me big time!
PR lesson #1 – be nice – always – not just when it’s convenient for you!
