'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 animal makes Octomom look half sane. (But only half.)

WTF is it about gays that they feel the need to relentlessly pick on and bully people with obvious mental issues?

This woman keeps talking on and on about how her daughter didn't go in a tanning booth. Is she aware that SHE is the person we are all concerned about? Is she aware how she is presenting herself? It's sad to watch. Very, very sad.

I've seen beef jerky that was more supple than her. If a wild animal got a hold of her he'd be chewing for days to digest her.

this woman has serious problems, if she doesn't stop talking to press - she will loose her kids, i bet the school has been waiting for any reason that would let them call child services on her

The fact she is okay with possibly dying young is really not fare to her family.

I thought the stories were wrong and that they were talking about her granddaughter. She looks 64, not 44.

Why is being overtan news? And why is TMZ going as far as looking at this woman's high school class photo? Can we see Harvey's photo too? TMZ you are beginning to behave like a bully. Since when is it okay for anyone (even gay editors) to bully someone who is obviously mentally challenged? Kind of unfair, especially since you are beating her up using both your tv show and your web site. Starting to look real bad for TMZ.

Stop reporting on this woman. She's not a celebrity and has no discernable talent. Let's nip tis is the bud before it goes to far. I don't want to see her autobiography on the best seller list 2 years from now!!!!
