Did any of you happen to see the Ruth Madoff interview with her son Andrew on 60 Minutes Sunday night? I found it to be very sad. I find her to be a very sheltered woman and extremely naive. Here’s a small article and here’s a video for those of you who are interested.
I feel very conflicted with this whole thing and honestly, I don’t think she knew what was going on. I know a LOT of people disagree with me. Even the person I live with does but as a woman, I believe her.
I know what it’s like to be a wife to a man with his own business and I have NO IDEA the things Paul does. Do any of us know the “extra’s” people have when they own their own business’s? This is a woman who after having children was a stay at home mom. She did have an office in the building where he did his business but she said she really only had it for somewhere to go and most of the time she was working on home stuff, kids stuff and volunteering. How would she have known he was up to what he was?
They had so much money and most women don’t think like men do and keep wanting more and more. Some do obviously but I saw the look in her eyes and she really still looks lost without her husband. She didn’t know what to do about anything. It was clearly obvious he took care of her and everything else. I think he became addicted to what he was doing and neither son knew either and they WERE involved in other aspects of the business.
What about you? Do you think she knew what her husband was doing? Do you think she should be punished?
