Tanning Mom

Glamour Pics Reveal

HOTTIE Under That Hide

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Just because she doesn't look like a hideous freak in the early pictures doesn't mean she was hot.

She looks like she could've been on Growing Pains or Who's The Boss or modeling clothes for May Company and Mervyn's, but that was yesterday. Today she can be on Intervention or modeling for Faces of Meth.

hi    

I don't think she was pretty back in her 20's that's why she wasn't a model

She used to look decent. Too bad all of that tanning trashed her looks.
