The May 19 issue of the Enquirer will have an article regarding Erin's real reason for being on the show. Apparently her whole "I did it for the money" thing was because she was behind in her mortgage payments and her house went into foreclosure. According to the Enquirer, she (and the others) were paid $75,000 to appear on the show.


Here's a little excerpt from the Former Child Star Central website:

Quote:
Yes, yes, yes, the Enquirer all but screams, training its sights on Erin Moran with the headline: "Joanie Loves Money."

Happy Days' erstwhile Joanie Cunningham, now 47, the paper says:

...Had no intention of actually losing weight when she signed up for [the show]...[She] had fallen behind on her mortgage payments, and her Palmdale, Calif., house went into foreclosure.

I know the show's over and all, but I wanted to share this info.

No. No. I appreciate it. Thanks. I was wondering about this situation. I don't know whether to feel bad for her or to shake my head in disappointment to her for what she did.

Well, at least that seems more respectable than Dustin's "buy my T-shirt" or "watch my porn tape". JMO.

Well your opinion doesn't count. J.K. L.O.L. I had an S.D. moment. Seriously, what you say does make a lot more sense. Dustin was quite tame this season. Last season he was a serious jackass and a half.

I have no idea what to think. Thank you for that Enquirer article. We have to take it with a grain of salt, considering the source. Still, let's say that is true, isn't Erin married? What does her hubby do for a living? Nothing? I know in this day and age people are losing their homes to foreclosure because they acquired loans and the mortgage payments went sky high, maybe that is what happened to Erin. We don't know the whole story. I would like to know what her husband does for a living. I feel for anyone who has a home over their head and no way to pay for it.

Dustin, I don't know what to say abt his situation. Why would he buy a house he can't afford to begin with? Was he receiving residuals and then they stopped? I feel for the guy in one sense, but to be such an a**hole to so many people??? What purpose does that serve? He and Gary Coleman are so much alike. They have huge chips on their shoulders.

Erin not at least trying to play the game is a slap in the face to those who were there to really try and accomplish something. Even if they go back to eating the wrong foods, gaining weight, etc. it was a game afterall and she let her team down.

I was asking myself that same question. I don't know if Erin receives HD residuals because from what I've read residuals in the '70s were an optional thing; the actor could choose getting residuals and a smaller paycheck. Since Erin was a minor at that time it's possible that her parents didn't opt for the residuals because I guess they didn't know that HD would be such a big hit and that it would be in reruns for years.
Still, the fact that she needed the money to save her house does not excuse her behavior on the show. Like Irene said it was a game and she did a very poor job. If she had done her job and helped her team, she would have gotten some extra prizes plus some extra cash. She could have sold some of the prizes for cash too.

What irks me is that these former child stars like Dustin and Erin try to extend their fame for some money and still have hopes of reviving their careers when most of the times it doesn't happen. The number of child stars that find success as adult actors is very low. If they haven't been able to find work, then maybe they should've considered a career change?? I mean, if they need the money so badly, then get a real job like the rest of the world.

What is even more shocking is we hadn't seen Erin on television in YEARS. She did that one episode with Scott Baio on his reality show, but overall, she had gone into oblivion. And when she does hit the tv screen, this is what she wants the world to see? I bet she now wants to just crawl under a rock.

How much of that was her own fault and how much was it a mental problem, a mental problem enhanced with alcohol?

If Tina's comment about Erin being bipolar is true, then that explains her mood swings and her behavioral changes when she drinks. I'm not a doctor, but I've heard that alcohol is a big no-no for people who are bipolar. I think the rumors about her being mentally ill started when she made those accusations against Henry Winkler and the HD cast in the early '90s.

I don't know about that , I thought she and Scott where the ones who were in a short-term relatiohship.

From what I know, she accused Henry (and IIRC some of the other guys on the show) of sexual harrasment. A few weeks ago the Bio Channel aired a special about sitcoms where they discussed Erin's accusations and Tom Bosley said that they were false and it was just a PR stunt to jump-start her career.

Actually, I was checking the TV Guide network and they showed a little clip about an event honoring TV moms in LA, and Erin was there. Of course she may have attended because I don't think any of the honorees are VH1 viewers .

TV Moms? Is she a mom?

I have not read much nor heard much abt HD rumors but for some reason, I seem to recall reading or hearing on television that Erin and Henry had a few "moments" together. I might be wrong, I don't know. For some reason that is in my head.

LOL no, sorry I forgot to add some info. Marion Ross was one of the honorees, so Erin just attended because she was her TV daughter . I don't think Erin has kids.

Oh, ok. I remember that event now. OMG, I remember Erin and Marion appearing on our local news morning show and they talked abt that event. Erin seemed so fine and happy. I totally forgot abt that.

Thanks for the link Irene, she does look happy in that clip. Totally different person compared to what I saw on CFC.

The clip is from 2007 though, but I had not watched it before. I was able to find the one I watched in YouTube. Here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlcwmOcuFZg
