Was it really necessary for Bernie Madoff’s daughter-in-law to offer up a look into her new life in a glossy magazine?
In a recent edition of Harper’s Bazaar, the wife of Bernie Madoff’s deceased son, Mark, has given an interview in which she talks of her new home, her shopping habits and what she gets upto in the gym.

In the piece, accompanied by photographs complete with captions promoting the brands that she is wearing, which presumably were given or lent, the former Mrs Madoff explains how she changed her name by combining the M from Madoff with ACK, “the airport code for their beloved Nantucket.” Here is a woman who has reinvented herself as a clotheshorse who comes complete with a publicist, RosieMarie Terenzio, who describes her as a “J. Crew kinda girl. Always was.”

During the interview, conducted over “burgers and wine,” Mack, who now occupies a TriBeCa apartment that surely must be the envy of many a Madoff victim, promotes her memoir, The End of Normal, as well as terming pieces about her deceased husband: “nasty no-news article[s].”
Plainly, with the help of her PR, Mack has most definitely capitalised on her story. She concludes: “I’m not going to let Bernie Madoff ruin my life anymore.” It’s just a pity she can't spare a thought for the many other truly innocent victims.
