Tanning Mom

Glamour Pics Reveal

HOTTIE Under That Hide

6/4/2012 10:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tanning Mom Patricia Krentcil modeling photosBrace yourself -- Tanning Mom used to be white, and kinda hot ... at least she was in a series of glamour pics she posed for in an attempt to break into the world of modeling.

Way back when TM, aka Patricia Krentcil, was in her 20s (think T-Rex) -- and before she turned her now infamous shade of leathery brown -- she took this headshot along with some cleavage-baring swimwear photos.

Krentcil, 44, has pled not guilty to child endangerment ... saying she never took her 5-year-old daughter into a tanning booth. The case has been sent to a grand jury.


As for the glamour pics -- there are some doubts about whether the face has been photoshopped onto a hot body. For what it's worth ... our experts say it has been airbrushed, but the head appears to belong to the bod.

Seriously, they look fake, but real or not.. I'd hardly call her "hot". She still looks like a no-lipped whack job. And if this is what she looked like in her 20's... no wonder she looks 60 right now. She looked mid 30s in those photos.

She looked just like Amanda Peterson from that movie "Can't buy me Love" that had Patrick Dempsey in it way back in the day. Its a shame shes ruined her looks with all that skin damage.

You get maybe 25 years of looking good out of your life. Then you have to live the rest. If people judge you on how hot you are, I guess you are all washed up at a young age. People should respect people for who they are and not how hot they are.

An old lady with soft skin is still old. People have to get over this obsession with the young and immature. There is value to people at any age.

She has no idea she looks bad. She probably thinks she looks exactly the same now as she did in those pictures.

Even I can tell those pictures are Photoshopped, and I'm usually oblivious to stuff like that. In the full pic in the right corner, the color of the face doesn't even match the rest of the body. It looks like someone cut a picture out of a yearbook and glued it to a decent body.

Too much sun, tanning beds, smokes, booze and too much time on her hands to indulge in all of the above. Get a job and do something useful with yourself lady besides frying yourself in a tanning bed and then going home to get drunk.

Although this woman appears to be a loon, she's not a celebrity and the evidence against her seems very weak at best.

Other than cheap page views, not sure TMZ is doing itself any favors by making a global mockery of what appears to be someone with emotional and possibly other issues.

This is like picking on a homeless person, Harvey.

Hope you're momma is proud.

If she loses that case, maybe she can go after TMZ for stalking and harassment. Seriously, Isn't there a more worthy candidate to kick in the gut? I think somewhere down south there must be a 2 yr old singing a song in church called all "All Rainbows are da Devil Cuz They're Gay."
