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.

When this whole tanning mom thing started she had a husband and children. Does anyone know what happened to them? No one seems to be watching out for this pathetic train wreck as she spirals more and more out of control. Michael Lohan is the kiss of death.

If there was ever a pair of losers that deserved each other, these two clowns are perfect together.

Good grief. she is 45????? No way! She looks 60! I am sure they did go to the same high school together because there is no way she is 45.

Really you must not want help if your going to Michael for help. He is a media whore.

Looks like MiLo plucked her straight off the beach for this photo op. Still posing as a rehab facility counselor. I find it endlessly hilarious that there 2 went to high school together.

Just because you're a drunk whose not practicing doesn't mean you're not looney or an a-hole. She's all of those.

You knew something was more wrong with her than usual when she started showing the topless look (vomit). Whether she was innocent or guilty of the tanning bed incident, the media attention alone was probably enough to drive her to drink.
BTW TMZ, how is she affording such an expensive rehab?

Did I oversleep and wake up in the year 2033? I see Lindsay still looks the same, but Michael hasn't aged a bit.

Okay I don't understand why Michael Lohan keeps getting involved with other peoples rehab needs when he's not a great example of someone that has redeemed themselves, I am sure he get's paid by someone to do this. His own daughter needs him, so where is he? he's with the brown turd.

Her behavior and distended belly have given her away already. If M Lohan is sober (still good on him. Sobriety doesnt turn nitwits into heroes, but its better than not being sober... in my view

If Krentcil (sp?) gets sober - her child benefits. I hope she makes it.

Someone at TMZ needs to do the math. Unless Michael Lohan is 45, or at best a very few years older, there's just no way they went to high school together.
