Mrs. Madoff's Kitchen Controversy

Move over Jessica Seinfeld and Cindy McCain. There’s a new recipe-centric controversy making headlines.

Remember that kosher cookbook Ruth Madoff — the wife of disgraced Wall Street trader Bernard Madoff — supposedly co-edited? Well, now another one of the book’s editors, Karen MacNeil, is telling The New York Times that “… in point of fact, I wrote the entire book.”

MacNeil also said that Ruth Madoff “was interested in having her name on something that would allow for some sort of fun.”

Doubt the Missus is having too much fun these days, now that her husband stands accused of perpetrating a massive fraud.
