We get that having a tan can feel good, especially in the summer. But most of us don’t understand Tanning Mom’s desire to obtain that leathery shade of brown. And then there are others for whom Patricia Krentcil is a tanning icon.
Trish Paytas — you might remember her from an episode of “My Strange Addiction” – doesn’t get why everyone is attacking Tanning Mom. “I don’t know why people were making such a fuss — [Tanning Mom's] a beautiful color. Her tan would look great on me,” said the 24-year-old lingerie model who spends about $40,000 a year to get her skin that color. We beg to differ.
We suspect Trish is suffering from tanorexia, but she doesn’t agree. “I’m not addicted. I could stop any time. But I feel so much better and confident when I’m tanned,” she explained. You can’t argue with denial. But you can argue with her styling choices. [The Sun UK]
