Erin Moran was just 14 when she signed on to play Joanie Cunningham, the feisty little sister of Richie Cunningham in the hit Seventies show Happy Days.

But while child actor Ron Howard, who played Richie, has since gone on to become an A-list Hollywood producer and director, his on-screen ‘sister’ has fallen on much harder times.

Moran, 51, was photographed looking worse for wear outside a Holiday Inn in Corydon, Indiana, after reportedly being kicked out of the trailer she shared with her husband Steve Fleischmann.

RadarOnline.com is reporting that Erin was kicked out of the trailer she’d been sharing with her husband Steve by his mother, who was tired of her ‘hard-partying ways’.

The National Enquirer reported back in June that the couple had moved into the ‘rundown trailer park’ after losing their California home to foreclosure.

‘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 told The National Enquirer.

The publication claimed Erin is now ‘bouncing’ from motel to motel – most recently a Holiday Inn Express in Corydon, Indiana.

In
the photographs, taken about two weeks ago, Moran – who has not aged
well – is seen walking in a grey T-shirt and plaid shorts, a cigarette
hanging out of her mouth.

She stands outside the motel with her husband Steve, who is also smoking, both of them looking worse for wear.

In other shots, Moran sits smoking with another man on a bench with two Great Danes.

Moran played fresh-faced Joanie in the sitcom Happy Days, which started in 1974 and ran for almost a decade.

She
continued the role in 1982 in the short-lived spinoff Joanie Loves
Chachi, alongside Scott Baio, until its cancellation the following
year.

Since then, Moran’s career has all
but stalled, with the exception of several television guest spots, and
an appearance in the 2007 independent comedy feature Not Another B
Movie.

In 2008, she was a contestant on VH1’s reality show Celebrity Fit Club.

Moran
and her husband are understood to be living off a dwindling sum of
money which was the result of a payout springing from a lawsuit filed by
several Happy Days cast members in April 2011.

The aging actress and three of her Happy Days co-stars, Don Most, Anson Williams and Marion Ross, plus the estate of Tom Bosley, who died in 2010, filed a $10 million breach-of-contract lawsuit against CBS, which owns the show.

The suit claimed that cast members had not been paid for merchandising revenues owed under their contracts.

In
July 2012, the actors settled their lawsuit with CBS. Each received a
payment of $65,000 and a promise by CBS to continue honoring the terms
of their contracts.

Erin had it all at one time. Really sad to read how her life has turned out. She looks 70, not 51

If she didn’t smoke and didn’t have two huge dogs to feed she would be much better off!

I feel really sorry for her. She was a real presence on the show. Shame things didn’t work out for her. Falling through the cracks can be bad enough but worse when you used to be well known.

Some just waste money and never look to tomorrow,she must have made a fortune in her time but has clearly wasted it,she should have made allowances for these lean times.I know very little about the acting fraternity but I do acknowledge that they are usually two minute wonders and that very few make a living out of it into their old age. Very sad all the same.

Got to laugh at the DM…..´not aged well´…surely what you mean is that she does not have the money to indulge herself in expensive beauty treatments, surgical proceedures, botox, private chefs, and who only knows what else famous and wealthy women use to ´hold back´the ageing process…..good grief give the woman a break!!

Selena Gomez: Actress, Singer, Wearer Of Awkwardly Small Booty Shorts

Selena Gomez Wears Booty Shorts To Perfume Promotion At Macy's

We’ve all been there before: you walk out of the house, completely certain your high-waisted white satin sea creature-themed hot pants will cover up your business, then all of a sudden you find yourself having to to bend over slightly. You guys know what we’re talking about! Selena Gomez certainly does, having stepped out in a pair of painfully short bottoms while promoting her new self-titled fragrance at Macy’s in New York today. Booty shorts? More like booty TOO-shorts! Are we right, or are we right? Seriously though, the inseam on those things has to be like .05 inches. How did Selena manage to get out of the car? And we don’t even have time to discus that matching starfish bikini top. There just aren’t enough hours in the day!

We guess Justin Bieber‘s lady really is committed to bringing the scandalousness in 2012, as her sexy Elle shoot and soaking wet perfume campaign suggested, though she’s drawing the line at starring in a film version of the salacious hit 50 Shades of Grey. “I don’t think so. I know I’m taking risks, but I don’t think I could do that!” Gomez told MTV. “That would be a little too much for me. I think someone older should do that part.” We’ll admit this booty shorts fail doesn’t look entirely intentional. What do you think of your minor wardrobe malfunction, Selena?

Mila Kunis Reveals Why She Became an Actress

Posted by Adam

MILA Kunis started acting because her family couldn’t afford a babysitter.

The Ukranian-born actress moved to Los Angeles with her family when she was seven years old and enrolled in a drama class as a way to meet other children.

“My English was a little janky,” she said.

“I didn’t have very many friends. And there was this place advertised on the radio as a place for kids to meet other kids — an acting class. My parents couldn’t afford a babysitter. They said, ‘Great, that takes up our Saturday.’ ”

Mila — who voiced Meg in animated adult comedy series Family Guy — also admitted she can’t understand why other actors regard their profession as “art”.

“I love what I do, but my theory is that it’s people who doubt what they do and want to prove it to you, they’re like ‘It’s art. I create art. It’s art, art, art.’ I’m like, Holy s**t, are you f***ing kidding me? I run around and pretend I’m someone else for twelve hours; I record Family Guy,” she said.

“Then I get to go home and watch Jersey Shore.”
