'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
EXCLUSIVE



"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.

Just happen to notice that comparing the video and yesterday's still shot it looks as though her skin has gotten quite a bit lighter. were they retouched photo's or does she just need to get back to the tanning bed ;0)

This woman gives the appearance of someone who was in a fire. I hope someone can help her. She obviously has mental issues if she believes her look is attractive. The really sad part is that the damage is done. She is a walking melanoma waiting to metastasize.

Different Rules Apply    

Drugs, alcohol, both? Something very odd about this person beyond the obvious detachment to how she thinks she looks and how she actually looks. Very sad.

w    

to the poster BB, you are exactly right!, unless they have footage of this woman bringing that child into the tanning bed with her, there was no need to charge her with a felony, definitely a witch hunt, its bullsh** you people who are ok with someone being charged like this do not see what's happening in this country do you
