Leathery Looking Mom, 44, Arrested for Taking Daugther, 6 in to Tanning Booth - Patricia Kentcil

When we first heard about this story we thought, "people are just over reacting to a little tanning." That is, until we saw pictures of the mom, 44-year-old Patricia Krentcil. Remember when Ted Danson dressed up in black face to spoof Whoopi Goldberg? She's darker than that. She's so over-tanned in fact, that the kids on Jersey Shore think she's overdoing it.

You know you've crossed a line when Snooki is the voice of reason.

Even if she didn't take her kid into the tanning booth with her this time, it's only a matter of time before she does by looking at her.

A New Jersey mom accused of putting her 6-year-old daughter in a tanning booth turned up in court Wednesday with the complexion of an old catcher’s mitt — and even Snooki thinks she’s crazy.

Patricia Krentcil, from the aptly named town of Nutley, gets blasted with ultraviolet rays up to 20 times a month — and apparently hasn’t stopped since her arrest. Tanorexic “Jersey Shore” star Nicole Polizzi delivered her own verdict on the disturbing case: Face dismissed.  “That b---h is crazy! . . . you are not supposed to take kids there,” Snooki told “Extra.”  Krentcil, 44, is accused of bringing her daughter Anna into a tanning booth, but she denies exposing the fair-skinned girl to the dangerous rays.

“It’s all made up. I’m not dumb,” she said.

Her husband, Rich Krentcil, 47, admitted his wife has been obsessively visiting tanning booths since she was in her early 20s.  “She just likes it,” he said. “She’s not a crazy maniac where she has to tan every day.”   Krentcil, who works as a trader in Jersey City, said his wife came out looking even browner than usual in a TV interview Tuesday. He also said the housewife would never hurt her child.
