exparrot: I love how the only possible job is on a TV show.

Yeah, perhaps if she climbed on the wagon she could actually get some sort of job that would support her. It's not like there aren't thousands of actors and musicians from 'back in the day' that have jobs now in the private sector, EMT's, dry cleaners, clothing designers, etc., you know, people that have enough self esteem that they go, "Hey, I got my 15 minutes, now I need to get a normal job and support my self/family." Some even get to 'relive' the glory days when anniversaries of their show or album roll around, or someone reboots the franchise.

Always sad to see someone that was 'famous' not be able to get over the fact that they aren't 'special' anymore and just fall apart. Seems to be a rather common affliction for 'child stars' whom I believe should be encouraged to get an education, and diversify their passion to more stable endeavors and be able to move forward instead of making a sad public disaster of themselves.

SirDigbyChickenCaesar: Scott Baio does not have time for your shenanigans.

Absolutely not. He is busy trying to act on some abortion of a show on Nick At Nite. Why people keep giving him a job, I'll never understand. He's like a male version of Tori Spelling.

Hoopy Frood: Trying? If only there was another former Happy Days cast member there with a little more pull.

He's been busy keeping this guy off the streets for 40 years

I'm disappointed fans of the show couldn't pull together something, but it seems people would rather buy Joe Biden a Trans Am.

If every who grew up watching that show made a small donation maybe we could buy her an old car that she could sleep in at least.

Her problem is that she goes against good financial advice. The rest of The Happy Days cast took Tom Bosley's advice and bought tons of real estate. Erin on the other hand, invested in a savings and loan, and after those went bust, she was penniless.

I was right behind her in the line to the Blue Jay S&L, and she was carrying on like a Greek widow. She was scared to death that she was going to have to do porn movies to get by (as soon as word was leaked out that she was flat broke, I guess she got offers to do Z-rated movies.

I heard that the same Asian movie producers who tried to murder struggling actress Susan Richardson during a production in the Philippines for insurance money also had Erin in their sights.

By all accounts Henry Winkler is an incredibly nice guy, and Scott Baio is an incredible tool. So things seem to be playing out according to Hoyle. Maybe the reason Ron Howard isn't rushing to help her is that she may be an incredible coont.

FTA: Baio, who also stars in Arrested Development, meanwhile shares a similar sentiment to Moran, but says he has better things to worry about than Moran's plight.

'I don't know what her situation is,' the actor told Fox411.com.

'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."

Other things on his mind: Moran's other Happy Days co-star Scott Baio says he has better things to worry about than Moran's plight

That's pretty good character assassination right there. I'm actually impressed.

But Fonz was always the cool one.
