They were photographed two weeks ago looking a bit rough outside a Holiday Inn Express in Corydon, Ind., as shown by the Daily Mail. …

Time has not been kind to her. Cigarettes and drugs probably didn’t help.

Joanie was doing great when Eisenhower was in the White House.

Now, under Obama she is homeless.

I’m always sorry to hear stories like this. I think it a shame that people who well at a young age weren’t taken care of by their agents or managers only to end up struggling because they never developed any other earning skills outside the business of entertainment which is fleeting for many reasons.

I've often wondered why so many of the kid stars end up so screwed up.

I don't think I'd let my kids get involved in the entertainment industry..playing in the school band or being in a local dance group or something like that might be ok. I figure they will probably end up in the military after high school or college so they will have plenty of time to see the world.

Wow, she's really aged over the past decade or so. I last saw her in a Weezer video ("Buddy Holly") around 1995 and at that time, she looked no older than when she was doing the TV show back in the 1970s.

Also, it is said that Scott Baio is the antichrist.

Oh my - really sad, isn’t it? And - I couldn’t believe when I read she was at the Holiday Inn in Corydon, Indiana - that’s just 15 minutes away from my house.

I vaguely remember her from the one time I saw her and Potsie and Ralph Malph at a Dragoncon and she seemed to be ok. Sad I don’t even remember the year I saw that. Apart from last year where I scratced the LCD of my DSLR, it has been a few years since I have gone to Dragoncon.

I am reminded of another star, Baby Peggy, a much bigger one at one time - paid $1.5 million in 1923 lost everything (or more precisely it was stolen)... One thing about TV stars of the 1940s-1970s: people never thought about such things as cable TV, VHS, DVDs, toys, posters etc - so much money they never received...

Corydon, IN.... wow....a true way-station. A word of advice, do not eat at the Cracker Barrel there. CB is usually a safe travel pitstop, but that one, no... just no.

She still gets 65k per year in merchandising licensing. How can you be homeless on 65k per year?

Funny you should mention Scott Baio.

He just put this out on Twitter today...

“Could someone please tell me where I can get a FREE “Obama phone”?”

LOL

Reading the linked article, it looks to me like they're living off a $65,000 ONE TIME SETTLEMENT she received. It doesn't look like it's 65 grand every year.

Does anyone remember the episode of Happy Days when Joanie takes up smoking, and Richie finally convinces her to stop?

Apparently the lesson didn't take.

These days, they’re fairly well protected from agents and producers, most of the “ripping off” is coming from “stage parents”.

Yeah the “stage parents” who IMHO are more immature than the kids themselves and sure don't seem to know anything about being a parent..

She needs a job. Isn’t there a reality show or a bad horror movie she could act in? A guest slot on Sons of Anarchy? there is cable? Maybe do a video?

It happened to Jackie Coogan (Uncle Fester-t.v.’s “Addams Family”)as well, his parents used up a whole lot of his money! A law called “Coogan’s Law” was enacted in his behalf and of other child actors/entertainers. It was to put their money into a trust and given to them later when they were old enough to use it themselves. It was designed to keep those around them from stealing it for other purposes, and keep them from being exploited with it!

Who knows - she might be taken in with the crew on America's Dumbest.

Doesn't she get anything from the DVD release of Galaxy of Terror?

It recently came out on DVD and was a cult film from the 1980s that played regularly on cable. James Cameron worked on this film that seems to have started as an Alien rip off.

Oh man that was hilarious!

Sad to see this happen. She had to make a lot of money working Happy Days as that show was on the air forever....even without getting residuals (royalties from re-airing) that is still some good money from doing the show
