Erin Moran, seen above with Mrs. C during happier days (slap me for that pun, I deserve it) in 2009, is down and out in Indiana after getting kicked out of the trailer park she was living in. Erin, who played Joanie Cunningham in Happy Days, and her husband Steve Fleischmann are motel hopping, because they don’t have any place to live and their money is draining away faster than whatever is left of Scott Baio’s sanity.
Erin’s road to woe started years ago when she was evicted from her California home. To save money, Erin and Steve moved into his mom’s trailer in New Salisbury, Indiana earlier this summer, but that situation didn’t last long. Steve and Erin both became trailer park rejects after his mom couldn’t take their hard partying and kicked them out. The National Enquirer (via Radar) says that Erin got thousands of dollars in a cash settlement from CBS after the Happy Days cast sued the network over merchandising revenue, but she’s drinking that money up so fast that it’s only a matter of time before her checking account is completely dry. Erin and Steve were living at a Holiday Inn Express for a little while, but they were kicked out for being drunken messes. Some source put it like this:
“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.”
You know what? We’ve all been there. We’ve all drunkenly passed out on the scratchy shag rug of a Holiday Inn Express in Indiana and then got woken up by the management throwing our stuff into the parking lot, because we broke the vending machine in the hallway while getting into a fight with it the night before. We’ve all been there and we’ll all be there again. Besides, it could be worse, she could be married to Scott Baio in real life.
