My obsession with Tanning Mom Patricia Krentcil grows stronger with every passing public appearance. Her latest is this gem of a TMZ interview where she responds to New Jersey’s newly instated “Tan Mom Law,” which requires anybody under the age of 17 to have a parent or legal guardian present when using a tanning bed. In addition, it requires the legal guardian and underage tanner sit through a consultation together about the risks of tanning. Also, it states that children under the age of 14 can’t get a spray tan. (What are all those “Toddlers & Tiaras” contestants going to do?) Keep reading »
Well, isn’t this is the bit of meta movie news wonderfulness I’ve been waiting for all my life? Tanning Mom, otherwise known as Patricia Krentcil, told In Touch magazine that there’s a biopic in the works about her life. I know! That’s amazing. But it gets way better. Guess who’s starring in “Tanning Mom: The Movie”? Nope, not Kristen Wiig, although that would be highly entertaining.
“I’ll star — It’s going to portray everything that’s happen,” Krentcil said. Keep reading »
New Jersey isn’t quite as fun when you’ve been banned from the local tanning salons. So Tanning Mom Patricia Krentcil is doing what any UV-ray worshipper would do: she’s considering packing up her suntan oil and moving to the UK. The New York Daily News reports that our most embarrassing cultural export since the “Jersey Shore” cast went to Italy wants to move to London for “a new style of life,” presumably one where not everyone knows you got arrested for bringing your fair-haired five-year-old to a tanning salon and then fell over drunk on a red carpet. Or maybe she just needed to evade “My Strange Addiction” producers pounding down her front door. Either way, I just wonder why Tanning Mom didn’t choose a locale closer to the equator … [NYMag.com]
This “Tanorexic” action figure, made by toy company Herobuilders.com, turned out to be their hottest selling item of 2012. No surprise there. Because of legal reasons, they couldn’t make the doll in the exact likeness of Tanning Mom Patricia Krentcil, but, we get it. All she needs is a bow. I have to get it off my chest: I’m really disappointed that my birthday AND Christmas passed and I DID NOT receive this as a gift. Come on, people! It was only $29.95. Does nobody love me? Does nobody know me? It’s not too late. [NY Daily News]
Dumb people come and go every year, and 2012 was no different. The past 12 months saw some epic stupidity, and not just from famous generals who had affairs with their biographers, men still dating the women who bit off their testicles, or the CEO who oversaw the death of the Twinkie. We have those folks, and 17 more.

Sometimes everything in the universe just aligns and, in one day, all your dreams come true. Today, the world brought me FORKLIFT FOOT and TANNING MOM AT A DRAG SHOW. I am a lucky, lucky human being. I am very grateful, internet gods. Very grateful.
Behold this video of Tanning Mom Patrcia Krentcil as the guest of honor at Hell’s Kitchen’s XL Hot Mess Drag Review last night. Yes, she is wearing a red, acrylic number that exposes her biscuit. No, she didn’t take her daughter tanning. (She mentions that a number of times.) Yes, she is highly intoxicated on white wine, no red wine, no Pinot Grigio. Just like Ramona Singer. And NO, I don’t think she liked the joke about her, Snooki and Big Ang in a hot tub being called “Gorillas in the Mist.”
