New Jersey's notorious "Tanning Mom" (aka Leather Face/ Patricia Krentcil), who rose to "fame" after sneaking her 5-year-old daughter into a tanning bed, is actually hurting the sunbed industry.
Who would have thought?
I mean, doesn't everyone aspire to look like an Oompa-Loompa on crack, just like Patricia? Doesn't every woman just dream that her face will one day resemble an over-used, crocodile hand bag discovered in a swamp after about a decade?
Indeed, the tanning bed industry, already forced to pay a 10% tax due to new health reform laws, is witnessing its reputation tarnished by the horrifying wizened visage of "Tanning Mom". Her face, after all, is enough to make little children cry out and flee in fear. It seems many tanning salons are seeing their business suffer in light of "Tanning Gate". I guess the industry didn't really need some one who likes like Patricia to be their new national spokes-model.
I can't imagine why, especially after Kristen Wiig's hilariously, spot-on parody of Krentcil on Saturday Night Live.
