20 Happy Days Facts

Joanie was Homeless

The actress who played Joanie had a very successful career with this show and her own spinoff, but she had a run of bad luck later. She was unable to pay her mortgage and was evicted from her home. She temporarily lived the homeless lifestyle before she was able to get her life back together and focus on making things right. Unfortunately, she passed in 2017 and is no longer with the rest of the cast and crew as they look back on their success and the good times they once had.

My kids love to whine, so I love to wine. My loves include nap time, bed time, date night, travel and evenings and weekends when my husband is home because he handles all diaper changes.
