Tanning Mom

Tanning Again

Tanning Mom Patricia Krentcil
has committed the cardinal sin of tan addicts -- stuffing her orange, leathery skin suit into a tube of fake UV light ... i.e. a TANNING BED!!!!

Our tanning sources tell us ... while in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida -- where she's staying for rehab (alcohol, not tanning) -- Patricia stopped by a Copper Tan USA to get her brown on ... despite vowing in the past​ to never fake tan again.

And get this ... we're told Patricia didn't buy just one session, she bought NINE. Here's the breakdown:

-- 8 sessions for $40 in a level-one bed (the lowest level of cancer light tanning avail)
-- 1 session for $32 in the strongest bed ... the "Celebrity Bed" ... which she USED the same day.

According to the receipt Patricia plunked down $113.10 (she also bought tanning lotion).

Cancer cells come free.

With all her tanning and alcohol, isn't she basically a human wick? Can't someone light her up?

Tanning beds are so outdated and dangerous. I had someone close to me die from skin cancer... people don't realize how dangerous those lamps are. Also, they make your face look like worn-leather. Not attractive.

TMZ could you enlighten us with where the income is that pays for the rehab, tanning apparently no employment. Is she independently wealthy?
Also how is she a celebrity more so than an oddity. Really what do you people do for a living it's kind of weird? Waste time and space for $$$?

NEWS FLASH!!!!!! 10 million people over age 21 had alcohol in a bar! Alcohol is bad for you, but these adults drank some anyway! Why would they do that in a free country? The sky is falling! Stay tuned for breaking news of millions putting deadly butter on toast. Butter kills. Look what happened to Paula Deen.

They get some strange pictures of this lady. I think she quit tanning because all of the salons in her community had banned her. For her to drive way out of town to find a salon that would take her would have taken an hour or more in traffic each way I guess. Now that she is away from all that, she is free to reenter the salon world.


If it makes her happy, why is it anyone's business. If she feels safe with the risk, then who is anyone to judge? Tanning releases endorphins and lifts your spirits. I think it is a good cure for people who booze up because it lifts their spirits.


I think she gets extra dark from some sort of tanning lotion though. I don't know if someone as fair as she is can get that dark naturally.
