Madoff’s Secretary Squeals…Sorta [VIDEO]


Eleanor Squillari, Bernie Madoff’s personal assistant spilled few beans on the Today Show this morning, but she did her best to make it seem like she was.

“I know that he knew it was all going down,” she said, explaining that after Madoff’s office had been searched and before his arrest, he called in to ask her “Did they check my appointment book?” Squillari said that question made her think he’d staged everything. “I believe he is protecting people,” she said. And without pointing direct fingers she added, “Ruth is very sharp,” referring to Madoff’s wife, who she said often came to the office to handle invoices and the personal checkbooks.

Squillari’s also written the lead story in the June Vanity Fair, which the VF website describes as “explosive.” We can hope…But there’s one more obvious question: When’s the book deal announcement?
