A Manhattan author who detailed how the 2008 economic crisis benefited her marriage to her financier husband is headed for splitsville.
Anthony Corso, 54, filed for divorce from Suzanne Corso, 50, late Wednesday.
Corso, who is a Park Ave. and Hamptons fixture, who wrote about her “rags to riches to rags to riches” story in a series of books.
Because the divorce is uncontested, it appears there will be no squabbling over finances or other matters. The couple has a daughter in college.
Suzanne Corso’s semiautobiographical book trilogy, “Brooklyn Story,” “The Suite Life” and “Hello Hollywood,” traced her humble beginnings from Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, to the moneyed wife of a Wall Street bigwig.
The first book recounts how as a 15-year-old, she became trapped in a dangerous relationship with an older mobster boyfriend.
In the second volume, Corso wrote of finding the man of her dreams — modeled after Anthony Corso — and later having to “pick up the pieces of her swiftly crumbling fairy tale.”
She married Corso in 1996. He worked on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange and soon they were living the high life.
“There were mansions, a private helicopter, lavish trips, yachts, jewels, everything one would expect to come with the territory of being the wife of a powerful market-maker,” the website New York Social Diary wrote about the Corsos’ heyday.

In 2008, their lifestyle came crashing down, along with the global economy. She put their losses at $100 million.
“It makes you realize, what is the money really worth?” she told Fox Business.
“What am I doing? It’s a house, who cares?”
She turned the tough lessons into fodder for her books.
Several calls to Suzanne Corso were not returned.
Anthony Corso said he would not go into details out of respect for his wife.
“We’re both on the same page with raising our beautiful daughter,” he said.Send a Letter to the Editor
