Daughter-in-law of fraudster Bernard Madoff illustrates how utterly out of touch she truly is with normality and the lives of ordinary, decent people
“The biggest mistake is putting on something you don’t feel comfortable in” casually commented Stephanie Mack (formerly Madoff) to The New York Times’ ‘Style’ in an interview this week.
As if without a care in the world, the daughter-in-law of the world’s worst Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff – a man whose actions led to financial ruin for many and the suicides of several of his victims – talked to the paper’s Hilary Sargent and shared news that she’s now gone into the business of advising women on how to “choose simple pieces like the best jeans and the kicky accessories to go with them.”
Tastelessly titled: “A Madoff gets a makeover, by giving them,” this cringeworthy feature was plainly designed to give this out of touch with normality woman (whom “loves a good beanie”) room to try and show her human side. It failed and simply illustrated yet another example of the very self-serving entitlement that brought down her father-in-law and those around him.
Remarks such as “I have nothing to hide” are all very well from Ms Mack, but in sharing that she now urges clients coming out of “their recent breakup or divorce” to “drop… $1,200 on a jacket by Iro” she illustrates that money is still her mantra. In adding that her mother-in-law Ruth Madoff is “so much fun to be around” she forgets that this very same woman was shown to be a greedy cross between Imelda Marcos and Barbara Amiel but in commenting: “I’ve urged her to have a comeback. Everyone loves a comeback,” Mack most definitely fails to understand that the public have no desire to see such.
Whilst Guest of a Guest, in toadily referencing the article, decided to term this pointless clothes peddler “the best friend you didn’t know you needed,” we would suggest otherwise: Stephanie Mack – a woman whose new name includes ‘M’ for ‘Madoff’ and vulgarly ‘ACK’ after the airport code for Nantucket (a ritzy location where she once had a holiday home) – is someone one most definitely doesn’t need.
The poor girl is plainly still deluded and if she believes giving such interviews saying nice things about that bitch Ruth Madoff she’s even more stupid than I previously thought.
WTF??????????? She needs to come Down Under and join me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No need for nastiness —– Bernie didn’t really mean to get so carried away and this hot birdie just got sucked in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I can see she wants to move on but these kind of remarks will not help in any way.
Everyone deserves a second chance. Give the girl a break.
What an affected woman.
“Everyone deserves a second chance”. Let’s all give Ethel examples of exceptions to that mind-blowing statement.
Ms Mack is giving people advice on how to dress? One thing I would not be taking from any Madoff, including in-laws, is advice about anything.
Surprised anyone would give a flying copulation for the opinions of this vacuous, deluded bitch……!
She had nothing to do with Bernie’s scheme and she lost her husband to suicide. And they have all been sued to recoup funds. The system is working. Let her and her family that is left move on with their lives. She has never once defended the ponzi pig bernie
These other people and the author of this article are reprehensible, loathsome scum. This person lost everything because her father-in-law. She is a victim just as much as any of the other victims. Her husband committed suicide, she lost everything, she has to deal with these kinds of comments from these losers who have no right not letting her move on with her life. People suck. Glad you are standing up and saying something, Rho!
Leave her alone.. she didn’t commit bernie’s crimes.. she has done nothing wrong and deserves to be left alone … plus the estates of both brothers and madoff stolen assets have been liquidated to cover the crime of bernie madoff. so let it go
She didn’t allow Ruth(LESS) to attend Mark’s funeral and he had nothing to do with his mother (or father) but “she’s so much fun to be around.”
She makes sure the name Madoff is included in any article about her because otherwise no one would know who she is. Arrogance and hypocrisy thy name is Stephanie Madoff.
The entire family is scum. They should ll be sharing that cell with Bernie.
These other people like you and the author of this article are reprehensible, loathsome scum. This person lost everything because her father-in-law. She is a victim just as much as any of the other victims. Her husband committed suicide, she lost everything, she has to deal with these kinds of comments from these losers who have no right not letting her move on with her life. People suck.
