Where are they now: Broke Happy Days star lives in a trailer park

Where are they now: Broke <i>Happy Days</i> star lives in a trailer park
Remember Richie Cunningham's cute little sister Joanie on Happy Days?

Former child star Erin Moran hasn't done nearly as well as her on-screen brother Ron Howard, in fact, her last "public appearance" was the time she got her boobs out at her local bar — only to realise nobody even knew she was famous.

She was once the fresh-faced star of a hugely popular '70s sitcom, but these days the now 51-year-old actress is out of work and living in an Indiana trailer park with her husband and mother-in-law.

"Life hasn't been kind to Erin since the foreclosure of her home," a family friend tellsThe National Enquirer.

"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."


Happier Days: What happened to little Joanie?

Erin's husband Steve works at the local Walmart, while Erin only makes the occasional pay cheque from personal appearances off the back of her Happy Days fame.

"She's been mingling with the locals and taking pictures with people who recognise her. She's even frequented the local bar," the source adds.

One night she even treated drinkers to some genuine washed-up child star behaviour … it's just a shame nobody realised who she was.

"Erin and Steve were having fun with some friends when someone dared Erin to flash her boobs," says the source.

"After some heavy coaxing, Erin quickly lifted her T-shirt. But other than her few friends, no one recognised her! Most of the customers were scratching their heads and asking, 'What was that all about?' and 'Who the heck is Erin Moran?'"
