“Happy Days” star Erin Moran may not be singing the theme song to the ’70s sitcom anymore. Moran — who played Joanie Cunningham — is currently living in a trailer park.
According to the National Enquirer, Moran was evicted from her California home, forcing her to move into a trailer park in New Salisbury, Indiana.
In 2008, Moran appeared on “Celebrity Fit Club,” but has landed few solid acting gigs since her “Happy Days” heyday. In 1982, the now 51-year-old actress earned a “Happy Days” spinoff, “Joanie Loves Chachi,” followed by several small walk-on roles in series like “The Love Boat” and “Murder, She Wrote.”
Moran is currently sharing her new, downsized living quarters with her husband, Steve Fleischmann, and his mother. But despite her new reality, Moran is reportedly in high spirits, making appearances at local bars — although few recognize the ’70s and ’80s sitcom star.
But Moran may have some money coming her way soon. A judge recently ruled that Moran and her “Happy Days” co-stars, Anson Williams, Marion Ross and Don Most, will be permitted to go to court, in attempts to regain royalties for sales of “Happy Days” DVD sets. CBS Studios and Paramount Pictures originally tried to dismiss their claims, saying that all of the actors had previously been paid what they were owed.
The group’s unpaid royalties are worth roughly $250,000 to $500,000.
