Well, there’s always NoPo, here in Greenwich

Turns out Ruthie Madoff may not be permitted to buy that one bedroom in Spanish Harlem (or whatever the hell you want to call it – the area that isn’t the East Side) after all: Madoff Trustee Irving Picard is suing the bitch for the $2.3 million the feds let her keep, claiming (d’oh) that she was in on the scheme the whole time. I’m all for it – leave her homeless and on the street, but if she wants a step up from that and maybe has some of Bernie’s old watches she can sell, or Madoff Investments paraphernalia, I’d suggest she look into what I used to call Pelenopor but which a reader has beautifully named NoPo – North of Post Road, of course. We got stuff here at prices that’ll knock your socks off, Ruthie. And if you can’t swing that, there’s always Chickahominy.

UPDATE: Here’s more on the suit from The Wall Street Journal. The Trustee’s looking for $44 million, claiming that regardless of whether Ruth knew about or participated in the scam, she benefited from it and lived “a life of luxury” on the proceeds. This theory should cause Walter, Monica and all the filly(ie)s sleepless nights because the Noel clan is, at best, in no better position than Ruth Madoff. Just like her, they say that they knew nothing and who can blame them for living large? But if  living a life f luxury on stolen proceeds is the test for restitution, do Round Hill cottages, villa’s in Mustique and $30 million yachts qualify? Why yes, I believe they do. Oh uh, Walt. Go, Irving!

    Don’t old criminals go to FL to die?

    Ruth’s claim of poverty is like the confession to the sons, a Madoff lie to try and protect the guilty. Bernie and Ruth didn’t steal hundreds of millions without providing for Ruth’s golden years. Just as the government never caught the Ponzi, it will never find Ruth’s stash.

    Madoff is no idiot and neither is Monica (sorry Walter). Ruth only needs to live on that $2.5 mil until all this blows over, and, since the Feds also gave her her passport back, she can then go to Switzerland or Brazil or Rio and lead a life of luxury off probably dozens of numbered accounts. Probably why the “Croation’s” Columbian son in law didn’t cancel the boat.

    There are two quotes on my mind tonight:
    1. “Affluence detaches and in time skews thinking”
    2. “You can be young without money….but you can’t be old without it….”

    How will Walter, Monica and the fillies handle being without money at this age? Without affluence, will the Noels become more human? Can one enjoy a canoe after a $30 Million yacht…or Brooklyn after Greenwich? What will happen to the “yoga arms?” What will it be like for Walter to play golf on a public course? Can they learn to enjoy Korbel after Dom Perignon? Standing in line…….a new reality? Word is Sir Allen
    Stanford is not happy with his Texas jail….cells with ten other men and no air conditioning….during a Texas summer. Is Walter too old to adjust to these conditions?
