I think Ruth probably had some inkling of an idea that her husband was up to no good, so I don’t feel too bad for her. But it’s sad when a crooked dude messes up his wives’ reputation. Check our slideshow of other women who got dragged down by their horrible hubbies.
Scandalicious Wives: Chicks Whose Hubbies Really Effed Up
The New York Times is calling Bernie Madoff’s wife, Ruth, “the loneliest woman in New York.” Although she hasn’t been charged with any crimes, her husband was involved in a $65 billion Ponzi scheme. He ruined a lot of people’s lives, including his wife’s. She has been banned from the salon she went to every six weeks for 10 years, and her kids no longer call her “mom.” She can’t go to her gym and a bunch of Upper East Side restaurants won’t serve her. Even Ruth’s flourist has nixed her as a client. [The New York Times]
