'Joanie' Doesn't Love Foreclosure

10/9/2010 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Erin Moran's had some happier days ... TMZ has learned the former "Joanie Loves Chachi" actress lost her home after the bank foreclosed.

Seems Erin -- who now goes by the name Erin Fleischmann -- was in arrears to the tune of $315k and didn't fork over the cash.

So, the house -- located in Palmdale, CA just north of L.A. -- went into foreclosure, according to documents obtained by TMZ, and was sold at public auction back in July for $291k.

But the not-so-happy-days plot thickens ... seems Erin kept living in the house and refused to leave. So the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. served her last Monday with eviction papers.

When called for comment, Erin's rep said our facts were inaccurate ... but would not say why.

Why don't you leave her the hell alone. You she was probably happy in her obscurity and you guys go digging around for this ****. What's wrong with you. You don't think it's bad enough for her. Unless you are going to help her out why post **** from people going through hard times. How must it feel to have once been hugely popular and now you aren't but everyone still gets to see you business. Stop it! Just do people currently in the spot light.

Sad situation really, maybe Scott Baio can help her out. He was bragging the other day on Twitter about selling his house for 2 million and having another one listed for sale at 5 mil.

Number 5 and all the comments; somebody probably called TMZ or the other rag papers or blogs and told on her - if she's in Palmdale, CA, that means she don't ever want to be seen or heard from again!

She's been fine on Facebook. No complaints from her there. Just alot of Church stuff. (Ugh) Fairly harmless. This is a surprise. I live in a fairly decent 'Hood, and my neighbors were dropping left and right. I'm just glad I wasn't one of them. Hard times. Hmmm. Jesus, "Show me the money!"

@12 Church stuff?? Well that's surprising, I saw her on Celebrity Fit Club a few years ago and she didn't seem to be very religious, but I shouldn't judge I guess.

Having your home disappear is devastating to anyone. Worse yet is a media organ that makes your pain and failure public. This situaton is common these days and it's clear she was NOT living beyond her means. I feel bad for her. She is a nice lady. I wish you much better times, Erin.

Now that the cat is out of the bag so to speak, I hope TMZ will do the follow-up on how this happened to Erin. Happy Days and Chachi were a long time's not like they were syndicating at the level of, say, Seinfeld.
