Tanning Mom Salon Owner

We Didn't Make Her Skin

Look Like 'Tree Bark'

EXCLUSIVE

0510_patricia_krentcil_splashThe owner of the salon where Tanning Mom went for regular UV treatment insists there's NO WAY he's responsible for turning her into a walking baseball mitt -- because her kind of tan isn't from a normal tanning bed.

City Tropics owner Anthony Ruccatano tells TMZ, Patricia Krentcil's extremely dark tan is more likely from a special sponge-on tan used by bodybuilders -- and it was NOT provided by City Tropics.

Anthony claims, "On stage [bodybuilders] look normal because the lights are so bright, but when they come outside it looks like tree bark." He adds, Patricia looks like she was "dipped in chocolate."

Anthony says Patricia paid $99 a month for unlimited tanning treatments at his facility -- tanning approximately 20-25 times a month.

Anthony also tells us, to the best of his knowledge ... Patricia's 5-year-old daughter was sitting in a car with her father the day she was allegedly burned on a tanning bed. Anthony previously told other media outlets the girl was in the building, just not in the tanning room.

As far as a Tanning Mom ban goes -- Anthony says, "I don't know if that's legal to do. So I wouldn't do it."

The PR Verdict    

The PR Verdict: D (It's a Dud) for the tanning salons. Now that she's been threatened with police action they're banning her, but they had no trouble taking her money before--despite the fact that she's clearly baked herself beyond reasonable thought.

Are you kidding me? "tanning approximately 20-25 times a month." I can't imagine what that is doing to her health. This woman needs some serious therapy.
