The wife of late comic actor John Belushi is seeking revenge on his biographer for his unflattering portrayal of the star - by publishing a critical book of memoirs about the writer.

JUDY BELUSHI PISANO has encouraged acquaintances of author BOB WOODWARD to contribute their bad experiences of him for a book which will place their negative accounts alongside affectionate memories of her husband.

Woodward's controversial 1985 biography of THE BLUES BROTHERS star - who died from a drugs overdose - focused primarily on his substance addiction and Judy is determined to tell the whole story in BELUSHI: A BIOGRAPHY.

She tells the New York Daily News, "I'm not angry anymore. I just felt it was something that needed to be put straight.

"Woodward was the wrong guy (to write that book). I was foolish."
