Tanning Mom

Enters Rehab

For Booze

EXCLUSIVE

0621-tanning-mom-michael-lohan-tmz
45-year-old Tanning Mom has entered rehab for alcohol abuse, TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Patricia Krentcil -- who famously faced child endangerment charges last year after allegedly putting her 5-year-old in a tanning booth -- tell us she entered Lukens Institute in Palm Beach Thursday night.

We're told Tanning Mom realized she had hit rock bottom after she was placed in detox for 30 hours at an airport in Minneapolis last week ... for being way too drunk to fly.

Of course, TM has had a few public drunken incidents -- last August she was a wasted, stumbling, panty-flashing mess at a gay nightclub in NYC. 'Memba that? So it's not a huge surprise.

As for why she ended up at Lukens -- a rehab center endorsed by Michael Lohan -- we're told TM reached out to Michael about treatment because the two went to high school together ... and she heard Michael mention Lukens' unique treatment and success in a recent interview.

Krentcil will remain in treatment for 30 days.

he is so hated, but you have to give him props for having empathy for this woman, while most people are just making fun of her sickness.

It is as if she is going through the How To Be A Reality Slut book ...chapter by chapter.

Look for several gigs out of this and I strongly feel Bulimia is next in line. We can only hope.

HTH is this freak still getting media time? Michael Lohan couldn't rehab a turtle from turtle soup. HTH is he in the counseling business? So I guess Lindsey is his reference?? WTF??

So Michael Lohan actually works at the facility that he wanted Lindsay to check in to? Isn't that unprofessional and highly inappropriate?
