Bernie Madoff’s Daughter-in-Law Allegedly Shopping Book Deal

According to Daily Intel, Bernie Madoff’s daughter-in-law is shopping a tell-all book to publishers. The book will be penned by Stephanie, the widow of Mark Madoff (who committed suicide):

Publishers say she would tell the emotional story of a strong-minded woman overcoming tragedy and moving ahead with life. She has told editors from imprints at Hachette Book Group and HarperCollins that she has a couple of letters from Bernie.

Apparently Stephanie has been trying to keep it quiet, but now Madoff family members have caught wind of the idea. One even offered up this unfortunate choice of words, when commenting on the book: “I don’t think she has enough inside information or smarts to tease out anything readable.”

We think the entire Madoff family should just strike the phrase “inside information” from their minds, forever.
