Snooki Speaks Out About That Tanning Mom

You guys have all heard about the tanning mom, Patricia Krentcil, right? Of course you have. I first read about it on Facebook, but then it was on TMZ and People and so on and so forth. But, just in case you’re not familiar or you need a refresher, Patricia Krentcil is this lady from New Jersey who has a serious, serious addiction to tanning, and she was arrested after her five-year-old daughter told her school nurse that her mommy had taken her tanning. Oh, and also this Patricia Krentcil character looks, as one incredibly spot-on commenter described over on Celebitchy, like William H. Macy in a minstrel show.

How crazy is that? I didn’t even know it was possible for a person to get that tan, but apparently it is, because Snooki, a strong advocate of tanning herself, has spoken out against this woman:

Reality star, mom-to-be, and Jersey tanner Snooki spoke out Wednesday against New Jersey native Patricia Krentcil, who was charged with taking her 5-year-old daughter into a tanning booth.

The 24-year-old guidette told “Extra” host Mario Lopez her thoughts on the incident. “That bitch is crazy… you are not supposed to take kids there. Everyone knows you are NOT supposed to take kids there.”

Krenticil was charged April 24 after her daughter showed up at school with burns, reports NBC. After the little girl appeared on several TV interviews, visual skin damage was evident. Krenticil’s daughter is now in her father’s custody.

State law prohibits children under the age of 14 from using tanning booths.

Listen, I know everyone’s thinking it, but if Snooki thinks that your tanning practices are crazy, then it’s probably time to reconsider. This is the girl who once said that on applications that ask you to state your race, she skips over Caucasian or Hispanic or anything else and checks “other,” and then she writes in “tan.” That’s how serious Snooki is about tanning. But remarkably, notice how her face still looks as though it’s covered in skin and not dirty old leather. If you’re going to be serious about tanning, this is the way to do it.

But really, check that woman’s face out one more time. Is this even real?
