Actress Erin Moran has hit some not so “Happy Days.”Moran, who played Joanie Cunningham on the hit ’70s sitcom and most recently appeared on “Celebrity Fit Club” in 2008, is now living in a trailer park in New Salisbury, Indiana after being evicted from her California home.
The 51-year-old actress is sharing her new digs with husband Steve Fleischmann, a former furniture mover who is now working at a local Walmart … and his mother.
Moran, who got her start on “Happy Days,” went on to star in her own spin-off “Joanie Loves Chachi” in the ’80s followed by walk-on roles on “The Love Boat” and “Murder, She Wrote.”
Today, Moran is reportedly taking care of her ailing mother-in-law and flashing New Salisbury locals while having a little too much fun in a local bar.
“Life hasn’t been kind to Erin since the foreclosure of her home,” a family friend told The Enquirer. “She and Steve moved in with his ailing mother at the trailer park a few weeks back. Erin is like an angel to her mother-in-law. She cooks and cleans for her and takes care of her personal hygiene. But to look at Erin today you’d never know she was once one of TV’s biggest stars. Her peaches-and-cream complexion is a maze of wrinkles and crow’s feet. She’s aged terribly.”But the nearly broke, former star could be seeing a paycheck soon.
A judge recently ruled that Moran and a few of her “Happy Days” co-stars will be permitted to go to court in attempts to regain royalties for sales of “Happy Days” DVD sets.
The group’s unpaid royalties are worth roughly $250,000 to $500,000.
