In her recent interview with W Magazine, Jennifer Garner admitted she loved appearing on Broadway in 2007, but she won't be doing it again anytime soon, in order to spend time with her family. “You can’t tell your kids, ‘I’m exhausted. Wake up with someone else today’. I live my life at these two extremes. I’m either a full-time stay-at-home mom or a full-time actress. I have this internal battle between, I need to work, I need to work, I need to work and I need to be home with my kids. And the kids win.”
According to W Magazine, Ida Garten, better known as the "Barefoot Contessa" on the Food Network show, dissed Jennifer Garner's attempt to appear on her show. Garner is a fan and reached out to the host. "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!'" After watching her show, I think Garten is one of those New England elitists that look down on working moms like Garner (even though she is famous), so maybe she's better off not being on the show.
