NUTLEY, N.J. — “Tanning Mom” is red hot over accusations that she’s a lousy mother for allegedly letting her 5-year-old daughter use a tanning bed, giving her a mild sunburn.

Patricia Krentcil, 44, lashed out at TMZ, calling her critics “jealous, fat and ugly.” She also claims she never took her daughter tanning. Instead, Krentcil claims she and her daughter go “shopping.”


Krentcil was arrested last week after her daughter told the school nurse she received a sunburn from “tanning with mommy.” Krentcil was charged with second-degree child endangerment. She pled not guilty. Read our first report here.
