Tanning Mom (love that nickname) went off on her critics today ... claiming her arrest for allegedly putting her kid in a sunbed is just a "witch hunt." Sure, she sounds a little nuts -- but does is it possible she's got a point?

Plus, ready-to-pop Rachel Uchitel calls in to talk about her nearly-nude photos ... just EIGHT days before giving birth. Also, Vanessa Williams gets an apology from "Toddlers & Tiaras" mom Wendy Dickey -- and a hungry lion comes thaat close to snacking on a toddler!

Probably this gal is used to being stared at but as a non celeb, Im sure having a tmz crew stalk you would be un-nerving to say the least. Last time I checked looking odd wasnt a crime. Are the vitreolic comments geared at how this woman looks or at the child endangerment charge? The latter is yet to be proved. The kid could have got her wires crossed. It happens.
Innocent till proven otherwise.....

There is more wrong with that tanning woman than just being unattractive...ok...butt ugly...she looks stoned or drunk or something...maybe not mentally balanced.

About Tanning Mom: Doesn't the tanning salon have cameras that would prove or disprove this story in minutes?
