The daughter-in-law of Bernie Madoff will never forgive him for her husband Mark Madoff’s suicide!
Stephenie Madoff Mack — whose husband Mark Madoff killed himself after his father Bernie Madoff was sent to federal prison for embezzling billions of dollars in the biggest Ponzi scheme to date — read a letter she wrote to her father-in-law on The View and proclaimed she could never forgive him!
“I understand that you sole money from thousands of innocent people; your children, your grandchildren, your entire family and even my parents. However, what you must know is that you stole the love of my life and four for your grandchildren’s father. You stole something from me that can never be replaced. You stole Mark, a loving husband, devoted father and my best friend. I deserve an explanation from you as to why and how you as a human being can possibly live knowing how much pain and destruction you have caused,” Stephanie read.
Barbara Walters then gave Bernie’s response. “I pray that you never have to experience the pain and torment I live with. I would gladly give my own life if I thought it would bring Mark back. I blame myself for everything that’s happened. Nothing will ever change this. You ask how I can live with myself, I can’t and I don’t know how much longer I can go on.”
But that didn’t sway Stephenie. “I will never forgive Bernie Madoff. I hold him responsible for my husband’s death,” she replied.
Stephenie appeared on The View to promote her book, The End Of Normal.
