Krentcil with her lawyer.
You’ve met Tiger Mom. You may also know Diet Mom. And by now you’ve probably become pretty well acquainted with Tan Mom! It just wouldn’t be the news if there wasn’t an evil mom to vilify. This week’s is New Jersey’s Patricia Krentcil, 44, who faces child endangerment charges for allegedly putting her 5-year-old daughter in a tanning bed.
Krentcil is especially suspicious since she herself is so tan, and, according to the “Today” show, uses a tanning bed a few times a week. As a result she looks about 70 years old — in addition to completely terrifying and like a science experiment. In her latest “accosted between Sears and the car”-style video, she tells a reporter she thinks people are attacking her because they’re fat and ugly and jealous of her. It’s like a time portal to Snooki in 20 years.
