Rumor We Love: Henry Winkler Is Helping Homeless Co-Star Erin Moran Get A Role On Arrested Development

Henry Winkler rumored to be helping Erin Moran get a job on Arrested Development

We were pretty bummed last week to learn that former Happy Days star Erin Moran was not exactly having happy days. The 52-year old is currently homeless in Indiana, bouncing between cheap hotels with her husband Steve Fleischmann. We cursed the fates for being so cruel to Erin, and wished that somebody would do something to help her. And then, like a hero on a horseback, entered…The Fonz.

Erin’s one-time co-star Henry Winkler is reportedly working to secure the struggling actress actress a part on the new series of Arrested Development. The series is produced (and narrated) by her ex-TV brother Ron Howard, so it can’t be that hard, right? “Henry is absolutely shattered over what’s become of Erin,” a friend told the National Enquirer. “He desperately wants to help get back back on her feet.” Winkler plays the Bluth family lawyer Barry Zuckerkorn on the cult TV show. And yes, he’s very good.

Moran’s career has essentially bottomed out since her last major role in the Happy Days spinoff Joanie Loves Chachi back in 1983. She had a few TV guest spots, and an appearance on VH1’s own Celebrity Fit Club in 2008. Her house went into foreclosure in 2010, and over the summer she was forced out of her mother’s trailer. We know it could just be a rumor, but we like to think that The Fonz looks after his own. And we know that’s  a little cornball.

Rumor We Love: Charlie Sheen Loses His Porn Star Goddess! Again!

But they seemed so happy! TMZ reported this morning that Rachel Oberlin—better known as porn star Bree Olsonleft boyfriend Charlie Sheen and fellow “goddess” Natalie Kenly, as well as Sheen’s Violent Torpedo Of Truth tour that continues in DC on Tuesday night. “It feels SO GOOD to be home!” Olson tweeted this weekend. “I was very homesick so it’s good to be back with my family and friends. I love home, Dr. Sniffles & you guys!” (“Dr. Sniffles” is her cat, by the way). Olson previously left Sheen in early March but returned, with the infamous actor saying “I chipped one of my warlock fangs on a great white shark I had to murder. Pissed me off and like an ass I took it out on her.”

Ironically, Sheen announced “The Rachel tending to errands back home” on his Twitter this weekend—pretty gentle for a guy known for not taking rejection well. As you can guess, it didn’t take long after posting for TMZ to admit they overplayed the drama. Turns out Bree once again has to deal with her DUI case in Indiana—partially the cause for her last departure from Sheen’s side—and that she is “100% still one of Charlie’s goddesses.” Wow, when TMZ can’t even bother to parse Sheen’s tweets, you know his cultural moment must be fading.
