Suze Orman And John Belushi: The Untold Story

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Most people associate comedian John Belushi with his Blues Brothers partner, Dan Aykroyd, but he had another important relationship with, of all people, TV financial planner, Suze Orman.

That’s the word from Belushi’s widow, Judith Belushi Pisano, who was college roommates with Orman and is the author of a new book about her late hubby, Belushi: The Book (Rugged Land).

Apparently, long before Orman started offering financial advice on PBS and CNBC, she was offering relationship advice to Pisano about Belushi.

Pisano admits Orman used to ask, “What are you doing with this guy?” and often doubted Belushi’s chances of an acting career.

That doesn’t mean she didn’t come to the couple’s aid, such as when he was thrown in jail for unpaid parking tickets.

Belushi was so broke, he didn’t have the money for bail so he asked Orman’s Dad for $25.

He chipped in the cash, but Belushi was penniless and could only pay back the loan by offering free tickets to his improv comedy troupe.
