'Tanning Mom' Lashes Out

I'm the Victim of a Witch Hunt!!!

5/3/2012 10:20 AM PDT UPDATED: 5/3/2012 4:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Tanning Mom" is red hot over accusations that she's a lousy mother for allegedly letting her 5-year-old daughter burn to a fare-thee-well on a tanning bed -- calling her critics "jealous, fat, and ugly."

44-year-old Patricia Krentcil was in Nutley (perfect) New Jersey yesterday on her way to a hair salon when she unloaded and then proclaimed she was a fabulous mother.

Krentcil was arrested last week after a school nurse asked her daughter Anna how she got a sunburn and she replied, "I go tanning with mommy." Krentcil was charged with second-degree child endangerment. She pled "not guilty."

By the way, you gotta see the part in the video where Krentcil narrowly averts looming plumber's crack.

The ol' girl isn't all there, she's been rode hard, and put away wet!!! She should be evaluated to see if she's missin' a cog or two. By looking at the video, yes she looks and sounds like she's about chitfaced, and looney!!! Good Luck to the little girl.

with the way she talks she doesn't sound very educated, besides why doesn't she use that money instead of tanning putting it into an education for that darling daughter.

Only 44 and she looks like 74! Stupid girl!

There is NO WAY she is 44!!! She is definitely over 70 (I'm thinking 72) and this is her granddaughter, NOT her daughter. So Sad and Soooooo Ugly!
