"Tanning Mom" is red hot over accusations that she's a lousy mother for allegedly letting her 5-year-old daughter burn to a fare-thee-well on a tanning bed -- calling her critics "jealous, fat, and ugly."TMZ has video goodness and more details. Spoiler alert: she really is crazy.
Krentcil was arrested last week after a school nurse asked her daughter Anna how she got a sunburn and she replied, "I go tanning with mommy." Krentcil was charged with second-degree child endangerment. She pled "not guilty."
What age is the cut off place, however? Isn't a mother who lets a 12-year-old tan doing something equally harmful?
Parents can't let kids smoke because it causes cancer. They can't let kids drink because it kills brain cells. There is no doubt that tanning beds can increase the chance of skin cancer dramatically, and that cases among kids are on the rise.
Not only does this poor kid have a sunburn, she has a homemade case of Mommy Dearest. Can you imagine a woman like that as your primary source of information, nutrition and discipline?
