Erin Moran, who played Joanie Cunningham on the hit sitcom “Happy Days” and then again on the spin-off “Joanie Loves Chachi,” is homeless and bouncing from hotel to hotel in Indiana, according to a tabloid report.
The 51-year-old actress and her husband were allegedly kicked out of the trailer home they were living in with his mom, according to the National Enquirer (via Radar Online). They were photographed two weeks ago looking a bit rough outside a Holiday Inn Express in Corydon, Ind., as shown by the Daily Mail.
In June, a rep confirmed to ABC News that Moran and hubby Steve Fleischmann had in fact been living with “her ailing mother-in-law” for more than a year. “They are helping take care of her, as any loving family would do.”
The couple lost their Palmdale house to foreclosure in the second half of 2010.
More recently, according to an Enquirer source, the onetime star “was going out and coming home at all hours of the night, sometimes with her rowdy bar friends, and Steve’s mom just couldn’t take it anymore, so she told Erin to leave.”
Though Fleischmann has a job at Wal-Mart, according to Radar, the two are reportedly living off $65,000 paid out to five “Happy Days” alumni over merchandising rights in a settlement reached earlier this year.
Moran displayed drunken behavior on “Celebrity Fit Club” in 2010. See the girl Fonzie used to call “Shortcake” getting racy in a spontaneous performance of sorts during a bus ride with the “Fit Club” gang, below.
