Erin Moran earned a career on "Happy Days," but now it appears she's homeless, and everything she worked for has vanished. But how did it get this bad? It all started after she allegedly got kicked out of the trailer park home she shared with husband Steve Fleischmann.
Moran, 51, was kicked out by her mother-in-law who was tired of her hard-partying ways. The National Enquirer alleges that the couple have bouncing between motels, but are blowing through the cash settlement she was awarded by CBS over merchandise revenue.
"On several occasions the hotel management warned Erin to curb her unruly behavior, but they finally had enough of her temper and demanded that she immediately leave the property," the tabloid reported.
The couple, who've been married for 10 years, was evicted from their home in California which led to them living with his mother in New Salisbury, Indiana.
"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," a friend of Moran told the Enquirer.
"Erin was going out to bars 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," a source said.
The actress famous for her role as "Joanie Cunningham" on the sitcom "Happy Days" has had a hard time finding acting work since the show stopped taping in 1984. Her last television appearance was on VH1's "Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp" which aired in 2008.
