If Patricia Krentcil had offered to pose for Playboy fifteen years ago, the magazine may have immediately accepted the Tanning Mom as a Playboy Bunny.
According to The Hollywood Gossip, Krentcil once aspired to be a model during her younger years. And if old photos of her aren’t Photoshopped, then the Tanning Mom was pretty good-looking back in the mid ’90s.
The Hollywood Gossip obtained pictures of Patricia Krentcil that were reportedly taken during the time she applied to a modeling agency fifteen years ago. Not a single square inch of the Tanning Mom bore a hint of her future infamous burnt-bronze skin.
“As far as I know,” Patricia’s husband Rich Krentcil said, “That was her.” He guessed that “It was probably taken a good 15 years ago, at least.”
Rich also admitted that he had no idea who took the photos or how they popped out only now.
A 44-year-old former classmate of Patricia Krentcil begged to disagree with Rich Krentcil. “She was skinny,” the acquaintance from Long Island claimed, “And had no boobs in high school. I just can’t see it. No way,” the Long Island acquaintance declared, “It must be Photoshop.”
Earlier this week, Patricia Krentcil pleaded not guilty to a second-degree charge of felony child endangerment before a grand jury. The Tanning Mom was taken into custody by New Jersey police for allegedly taking her cute five-year-old daughter into a tanning bed. Krentcil is banned from 63 tanning salons in the area.

Patricia Krentcil may be eager to bare her bronzed body on the pages of Playboy, but those feelings are totally one-sided.
As TMZ earlier reported, the 44-year-old Tanning Mom said she would be delighted to show some skin in a Playboy nude photo shoot. She has even been practicing sexy poses. All she is waiting for is the official invite, and it’s off with her clothes.
But Playboy sources informed TMZ that such an invitation will never be sent, much less thought of.
“It wouldn’t even be considered,” a source declared. Playboy owner Hugh Hefner, said the source, would never let Patricia Krentcil pose nude or otherwise in the magazine- or any other Playboy outlet, because the Tanning Mom isn’t Playboy material.
For those who want to see more of Patricia Krentcil -but not more of her skin- she also revealed several invitations to appear on a reality show. Clothed, of course.

Forget Mayweather-Pacquiao. As of this Saturday, the bout to watch is Nadya Suleman (Octomom) versus Patricia Krentcil (Tanning Mom) for the award of Mother of the Year.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nadya Suleman didn’t believe that Child Protective Services should take Krentcil’s cute little redheaded tyke away. Even after Tanning Mom got arrested for supposedly tanning said child’s backside, Octomom said she always gave parents the benefit of the doubt.
What the tanorexic Patricia Krentcil needed, according to the mother of 13, were tips on child-rearing.
Days ago, another mother -Snooki from ‘Jersey Shore’- called the Tanning Mom “crazy.” Patricia Krentcil promptly slammed Snooki in return.
Nadya Suleman was herself visited by Child Protective Services months ago. The Octomom earlier filed for bankruptcy and started an adult film career to pay for the debts she incurred taking care of her brood of 13.

Fun-loving Kim Kardashian decided to pose a “serious competition” to famous tanorexic Patricia Krentcil by donning a deep (but temporary) tan of her own. According to a report by Gossip Center, the ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star debuted her new skin tone on Saturday. A picture in her blog showed Kim to be sporting quite the deep brown tan mostly associated with tanorexic people.
“The tanorexic mom has some serious competition,” Kim Kardashian jokingly declared. She was referring to New Jersey native Patricia Krentcil, the infamous Tanning Mom who gained quite the notoriety these past few weeks for her artificially-dark complexion- and for allegedly taking her pale-skinned 6-year-old daughter into the tanning bed with her.
Kardashian assured her fans that her new look was temporary. Apparently, she had used a spray tan to achieve the tanorexic look, and she later washed it off.
“I’m back to my normal tan self now,” Kim Kardashian later blogged. She seemed quite pleased with her homage to Patricia Krentcil. “But how crazy does it look after being on for 8 hours!” she said of her brief tanorexic look.

The owner of City Tropics -the salon where Patricia Krentcil regularly gets tanned- says the Tanning Mom used a different tanning product and method than the the ones found at his business. In a TMZ exclusive report, City Tropics owner Anthony Ruccatano said that the extremely dark tan sported by ‘Tanning Mom’ Patricia Krentcil is probably a special sponge-on tan made for bodybuilders.
The said sponge-on tan is not, he repeats, not available at his salon, which uses regular tanning beds. “On stage [bodybuilders] look normal because the lights are so bright,” Ruccatano claimed. “But when they come outside it looks like tree bark.” He added that, “Patricia looks like she was dipped in chocolate.” What Patricia Krentcil did get at City Tropics -for the price of $99 a month- was unlimited tanning treatments. That’s approximately 20-25 tanning session.
Anthony Ruccatano also told TMZ that the 5-year-old daughter of the Tanning Mom was in a car with her father on the day she allegedly joined her mom in a tanning bed. This contrasted with what he earlier told other media outlets: That the daughter of Patr was in the building, just not in the tanning room.
“I don’t know if that’s legal to do,” Anthony Ruccatano replied to questions about potentially banning Patricia Krentcil from City Tropics premises. “So I wouldn’t do it,” he told TMZ.

Patricia Krentcil now has her own ”tanorexic” action figure with real bronze tan. (Tanning booth probably sold separately.)
CBS News reported that a novelty company in Oxford, CT created a new toy based on the so-called Tanning Mom. The doll wears a black pantsuit, and has blonde hair and orange skin. It costs $29.95.
“We thought it was a funny thing to do,” said Emil Vicale, president of Oxford-based HeroBuilders, who noted that everyone has friends who are crazy about tanning.
One of those zealous tanning fans is Patricia Krentcil. Called the ‘Tanning Mom’ for her bronzed skin tone, New Jersey native pleaded not guilty to charges of child endangerment last week.
Krentcil denied recent accusations of causing skin burns to her pale-skinned toddler of six years of age. She claimed that her daughter got sunburned outdoors and not inside a tanning booth.
CBS tried to contact Patricia Krentcil at her Nutley, NJ phone on Tuesday evening about the doll based on her likeness. However, Krentcil did not answer the phone. Neither did her attorney respond to the after-hours message sent by CBS.

Patricia Krentcil might not have been amused when Snooki called her “crazy,” but she’s a good sport about Kristen Wiig humorously comparing her to Wile E. Coyote on ‘Saturday Night Live.’
According to The Hollywood Gossip, the Tanning Mom told the New York Post that her impersonation on ‘Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update news segment this weekend was “well done.” Krentcil added that, “The whole thing was hysterical.”
The Nutley, New Jersey native gained the title ‘Tanning Mom’ after getting arrested for supposedly dragging her six-year-old into a tanning bed.
In the ‘Saturday Night Live’ sketch, Kristen Wiig sported a charred appearance to reflect the startling bronze tan of the real Patricia Krentcil. Wiig compared Krentcil to a Slim Jim, and later “Wile E. Coyote right after something’s blown up in his face.”
Krentcil wasn’t so forgiving when fellow tanning enthusiast Snooki derided her as “crazy” during an interview on Extra. Perez Hilton reported that “Snoopy” was the least offensive invective the Tanning Mom had hurled at the pregnant ’Jersey Shore.’

Called “crazy” by Snooki earlier this week, ‘Tanning Mom’ Patricia Krentcil replied with a volatile volley of her own by describing the pregnant ‘Jersey Shore’ star as “fake,” “fat,” and “disgusting.”
Police recently arrested the Nutley, New Jersey native for reportedly taking her five-year-old daughter to a tanning booth. When Snooki went on Extra earlier this week, she was asked to comment on Krentcil’s arrest.
“That b!tch is crazy,” Snooki -who is a fan of tanning herself- noted of the Tanning Mom. “Everyone knows you are not supposed to take kids there.”
Word got back to Patricia Krentcil, and she promptly slammed Snooki as “the biggest a$$hole in the world” for criticizing Krentcil’s life decisions.
“When this is all said and done,” the Tanning Mom declared of the pregnant ‘Jersey Shore’ star, “I’d like to meet up with ‘Snoopy’. She’s fake, she’s fat, her t*ts are fake, she’s disgusting.”
Patricia Krentcil pleaded not guilty to child endangerment and claimed her fair-skinned, red-haired child had gotten the sunburn from playing outside.
