Report: The Fonz Helping Erin Moran Have Happier Days

Michael Buckner/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Henry Winkler has reportedly read the tabloid stories about his former Happy Days co-star Erin Moran -- who is said to be in serious financial straits -- and he's apparently ready to give her a helping hand.

Quoting a National Enquirer report, the New York Post says Winkler was "absolutely shattered" by stories Moran has been living in cheap hotels, and the actor-producer is reportedly trying to get the actress work on Arrested Development, the acclaimed sitcom that has been recently resurrected by Netflix.

Recently, Scott Baio, who played Fonzie's younger cousin and Moran's love interest Chachi on Happy Days -- and on the short-lived spin-off Joanie Loves Chachi -- was asked if he'd consider helping out his former co-star.  Fox News reported he was less receptive.

"I don't know what her situation is," Baio reportedly said.  "I have a job to do, I have a wife and child to take care of.  So I don't pay attention to things that I don't know anything about.  I’ve got my own situation to deal with."

Moran turns 52 on Thursday.

"Happy Days" Star Erin Moran Living in Her Mother-in-Law's Trailer 

Gregg DeGuire/PictureGroup(LOS ANGELES) -- Happy Days star Erin Moran may be living in her mother-in-law’s trailer, but she has a good reason.

“Erin and her husband did in fact move in with her ailing mother-in-law over a year ago,” Moran’s publicist told ABC News. “They are helping take care of her, as any loving family would do.”

Moran’s rep would not comment on reports that the actress had been evicted from her California home, but TMZ obtained documents showing that Moran’s home had been foreclosed on in 2010 and she was served eviction papers later that year after refusing to leave.

But a big paycheck could be coming her way. On Tuesday, a Los Angeles judge ruled that a lawsuit brought by Moran and other Happy Days regulars against the show’s owner, CBS, can go to trial. Moran, Marion Ross, Anson Williams, Donny Most and Tom Bosley’s widow Patricia sued CBS last year claiming they are owed royalties from the use of their images in merchandise that includes shirts, scrapbooks, cards, games, lunch boxes, dolls, DVDs, magnets and slot machines.  A trial is scheduled to begin July 17.

Moran’s rep also noted that the actress, 51, has an upcoming appearance on the reality series on Celebrity Ghost Stories and is “in talks with other TV and film projects.”
