In a truly bizarre profile in the New York Times' Styles section, we learn that Ruth Madoff, cookbook trademark infringer and potentially alleged co-conspirator to her husband's swindlings, has it really rough.
Banned from her florist in Amagansett and the salon she frequented for ten years, she recently "submitted to a voluntary freeze on all spending, [...]
Bernie Madoff's trail of economic devastation continues! Kyra Sedgwick, after reportedly losing upwards to $50 million in Bernie Madoff's Ponzi scheme, is now shilling for Tropicana in print and in commercials.

We were shocked when we read that Ruth Madoff, wife of grade-A shitbucket Bernie Madoff, was a cookbook editor, but then we paused — why not? There's no real reason a love for gourmet food can't coexist with a penchant for securities fraud.
