Ruth Madoff, wife of disgraced Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff, and her surviving son, Andrew, appeared on the "Today" show Monday to discuss Ruth's revealing interview on "60 Minutes."
Although pressed by host Matt Lauer, Ruth and Andrew maintain that they knew nothing about Bernie's nefarious business. Watch the interview.
As for the elder Madoffs' suicide pact, Lauer told Ruth and Andrew that he received a call from Bernie in prison, who said he lied to the NY Times when he said, "I never thought of taking my life, it's just not the way I am." Bernie confessed he and Ruth indeed swallowed pills in an effort to kill themselves.
Ruth Madoff recently said she and husband Bernie tried to commit suicide on Christmas Eve over the $60-billion scandal that rocked the financial world.
The most hated woman in New York told "60 Minutes" (airing Sunday) that she and Bernie swallowed a bunch of pills, even though Bernie told the NY Times earlier this year, "I never thought of taking my life, it's just not the way I am."
Ruth Madoff, wife of disgraced financier and Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff, revealed to "60 Minutes" that she and her husband attempted suicide together, about two weeks after his 2008 arrest.
"I don't know whose idea it was, but we decided to kill ourselves because it was so horrendous what was happening," Ruth Madoff said to reporter Morley Safer. "We had terrible phone calls. Hate mail, just beyond anything and I said, 'I just can't go on anymore.'"
Mark Madoff, son of Ponzi scheme mastermind Bernard Madoff, committed suicide on the second anniversary of his father's arrest, and now, Mark's widow, Stephanie Madoff Mack, opens up about the torment her husband experienced.
In the book, "The End of Normal: A Wife's Anguish, A Widow's New Life," Stephanie recounts the last two years of Mark's tormented life over the notorious deceit that wiped out thousands of investors.

Bernie Madoff's alleged mistress Sheryl Weinstein is speaking out about her affair with the Ponzi schemer -- and why she's finally telling their love story.
On "Good Morning America" today, Sheryl -- who had previously denied an affair with Madoff -- said their 21-year relationship was sexual for a just eighteen months. "He was a good kisser," she admitted.
Weinstein also stated that she decided to come clean about the affair because she needed the money. It seems she too lost her fortune investing with her ex-lover! "What I have to sell is my story," she said.
"Madoff's Other Secret: Love, Money, Bernie, and Me" will be published by St. Martin's Press.
Rumor has it that Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff is dying of cancer in jail -- but is it true?
Believe it! "Extra" first reported that Madoff was suffering from cancer, and now the New York Post has confirmed Madoff's illness with inmate sources. "He's been taking about 20 pills a day for his cancer," one inmate dished to the paper. "He talks about it all the time. He's not doing very well."
The swindler of the century, 71, pleaded guilty in March to stealing over $65 billion from his clients. He is currently serving a prison sentence of 150 years.
