22:26 GMT, 6 June 2012
Most people remember her as fresh-faced Joanie Cunningham in U.S. sitcom Happy Days, but recently they may not recognise Erin Moran.
The 51-year-old actress is a shadow of her former-self after being evicted from her California home recently.
Now, she and her husband Steve Fleischmann are spending their days living in a rundown caravan park in New Salisbury, Indiana. and it is apparently taking its toll.
Taking it's toll: Erin Moran, pictured here last year, is looking haggard after being evicted from her California home
According to the National Enquirer, Moran is looking haggard and is pretty much broke.
'Life hasn’t been kind to Erin since the foreclosure of her home,' a family friend told The Enquirer.
'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.'
What happened Moran, who starred in Happy Days for ten years, is now living in a rundown caravan park with her husband Steve Fleischmann
The couple – who met in 1992 when Fleischmann helped her move house – are living with his 'ailing' mother in the trailer park, where Moran is said to be cooking and cleaning for her and also 'taking care of her personal hygiene.'
Moran – who starred in Happy Days as Richie's little sister from 1974 until 1984 – is said to be trying to maintain a positive attitude but she is barely recognised by the public anymore which is also affecting her.
Shadow of her former self: Moran allegedly flashed her breasts at her local bar recently but no one knew who she was
'She’s been mingling with the locals and taking pictures with people who recognize her. She’s even frequented the local bar,' the source added.
The actress is said to have flashed her breasts while in the bar, but sadly no one really knew who she was.
'Erin and Steve were having fun with some friends when someone dared Erin to flash her boobs,' said the source.
Fresh-faced: The public barely recognise the 51-year-old actress now
some heavy coaxing, Erin quickly lifted her T-shirt. But other than her
few friends, no one recognized her. Most of the customers were
scratching their heads and asking, “What was that all about” and “Who
the heck is Erin Moran”'
The couple are said to be getting by with Fleischmann working at Walmart and Moran trying to get her own work too.
