'Happy Days' Star Erin Moran Falls On Hard Times Shortly After Settlement With CBS
Child star Erin Moran, 51, who played Joanie Cunningham in the quintessential 70s shows Happy Days and spinoff Joanie Loves Chachi with Scott Baio, 52, seems to have fallen on hard times just a few months after her summer lawsuit with CBS, which awarded her $65,000 in merchandising revenue, was settled.
Moran and her husband, Walmart garden center employee Steve Fleischmann, were recently kicked out of the Indiana trailer they had been sharing with Fleishmann's mother, reports Examiner.
Moran had previously chipped in as her mother-in-law's caretaker before the older lady reportedly got tired of Moran's late partying with the rowdy bar friends she would bring home, according to Oregon Live.
Since then, Moran and her husband have been living in or near hotels in Croydon, Ind., where residents have seen her walking around late at night and acting "nuts," though not necessarily inebriated or strung out, one hotel guest told Radar.
"We were just hanging outside at about 9 or 10 pm, and she just happened to be coming out around the corner and stopped and talked to us," said the source. "She was real goofy and silly acting. She said [she] was heading over to the bar for a tequila shot, but actually stayed with us instead and hung out for the next three or four hours outside in the grass."
The guests went back to their rooms to go to sleep, and when they awoke several hours later, they saw Moran still walking around the grounds talking to people, wearing the same clothing as the night before, writes Oregon Live.
"I don't know if she slept there or not, she was very vague about which room was hers," said the source.
