Tanning Mom

Enters Rehab

For Booze

6/22/2013 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.

LMAO! So, Michael Lohan FINALLY got someone to go to his precious ‘Lukens’. Is that him in the photo FFS? Oh, what a whacky world we live in!

Hey, TMZ, she's NOT a celebrity, and we, the people, insist you STOP WITH THE STORIES ON HER! And get rid of her pictures immediately.

Lindsay Lohan - look at what your Dad just dragged in the door. Look carefully - because that's you in fifteen years. The only difference between Lindsay and Tanning Mom? Tanning Mom is not an entitled a$$hole. Otherwise - it looks like Michael filled his quota at the Lookens Institute to bring a stupid, illiterate, trailer-trash, drugged out junkie of a whore. Michael is getting money every time he mentions Lookens Institute - and it shows what a piece of trash he is that if he can't bring in his narcissist grifter of a daughter - he'll bring in the next best trainwreck from the rags - Tanning Mom. At least Tanning Mom doesn't lie and steal from old women and punch strangers in the face.

And I don't beleive for a second that Tanning Mom reached out to Michael. That's total BS. The only thin Tanning Mom can reach out to is the button on her tanning booth. Nope, Michael was looking for a replacement for his monetary take on Lindsay.

Lindsay Lohan being associated with Tanning Mom is very appropriate and oddly - fills me with both disgust and contentment.

Such a pity. I hope she gets better.
