'Tanning Mom' Patricia Krentcil

Most Likely to be Tan

5/5/2012 12:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tanning Mom Patricia Krentcil in high school
Here's a photo from 1983 of a then 15-year-old Patricia Krentcil, taken when she was a freshman at Cold Spring Harbor High School in New York -- and wouldn't you know it ... but she had that natural orange glow even back then.

Now 44, woman who has become known as The Tanning Mom ... when she was charged with child endangerment for allegedly taking her 5-year-old daughter tanning.

One of her high school classmates told the NY Post, "I do remember her being on the tan side. She definitely had some color."

Understatement.

This woman is now laughing all the way to the bank because all you NON-journalists sites are clamoring for an interview and paying her money. I really hope she didn't put her daughter in the tanning bed and if she didn't, the rest of you spending money on a NON-CELEBRITY trying to outdo each other will look like a-holes for putting this woman on your site, or front page on your gagmag.

I still think it's shoe polish or something different than a tanning bed tan. Maybe she's using fake tanner because when you use too much, you start looking very odd. Clearly not Jergins or Dove gradual tanner.

I wonder if she was in denial about everything back in her teenage years like she is today about child abuse to her 5 year old for second and third degree burns in allowing her daughter in a tanning salon?

The Tanning Mom is lame, The Tan Bag is better.

How embarrassing. This woman actually thinks she is a "looker" with that toasted marshmallow tan. She is one weird, ugly broad!

best not to call her "tanning mom"
but to give her
the more appropriate title of
"MELANOMA MOM"
....since it's just a matter of time!
