OMG! Erin Moran (Joanie Cunningham) Homeless! Happy Days No More!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Erin Moran, who played Joanie Cunningham on Happy Days from 1974 to 1986, appears to have fallen on some tough times. The 51-year-old actress (who also appeared on VH1`s Celebrity Fit Club in 2010) is reportedly homeless and living in hotels after being kicked out of her mother-in-law`s mobile home in Corydon, Ind."


I grew up in abject poverty, and the "Happy Days" household represented the embodiment of the American Dream. How I would have loved to live in a home where everybody had their own bedroom and mom always cooked a fabulous meal that didn`t come out of a can or a cereal box.

Living under the same roof as hottie Joanie Cunningham was have been a huge bonus. (Yeah, I was a weird kid.)

"The Happy Days" bit players aren`t swimming in residuals, in fact Moran is living of a $65,000 settlement she received earlier this year, after suing the producers of the beloved show.

You`d think that nice chunk of change would have kept her with a roof over her head for at least a year, but I guess not.

I just cannot live in a world where Joanie Cunningham is homeless, there has got to be a producer who will hire her to star in a reality show. Richie Cunningham, how about giving her a bit part in one of your movies?
