Ruth Madoff’s 60 Minutes interview – in which she revealed that she and husband Bernie Maddoff considered killing themselves during his Ponzi scheme fallout – continues to make waves.

Stephanie Madoff Mack, the widow of their son Mark who committed suicide last December (on the second anniversary of his father’s arrest), says she’s put off by what her mother-in-law said on the CBS news program.

“I have no idea what went on in that penthouse that night, but for Ruth to talk about trying to kill herself so flippantly like that is so offensive to me, because that’s how my husband died,” Madoff Mack, 37, tells Anderson Cooper on Wednesday’s episode of his syndicated talk show, Anderson.
