His wife Sheryl Weinstein just published that tell-all memoir with squeamish details about the fraudulent investment expert’s sex life, but Weinstein said his wife needed to write the book or turn into a “basket case.” She had been depressed over Madoff’s unraveled financial scam, which had ruined her professional life.
Here’s more from the interview: “Ron says he won’t do anything to hurt the book’s sales. ‘Half of the profits are mine,’ he points out, and he’s glad some of his friends are buying the book, even if its content rankles. Not that he’s actually read it. After thumbing through it looking for his name, he came across passages describing Sheryl’s ‘sexual advances with Bernie’ and decided it was best if he didn’t know the details.”
