"Tanning Mom" Patricia Krentcil Banned from New Jersey Salons

Patricia Krentcil, aka the "Tanning Mom," will no longer be feeling the love -- or the heat -- from tanning salons in her home state of New Jersey. According to People, Planet Sun has reportedly banned the overly tanned mother from receiving services at any of its eight New Jersey locations.

"It's 100 percent true. She's banned," an employee at Planet Sun's Ridgefield, N.J., headquarters tells New York's Daily News.

But the "tanorexic" mom, 44, who has pleaded not guilty to charges of child endangerment for allegedly taking her 6-year-old daughter tanning, says it doesn't matter if she's welcome at a salon franchise or not because she's done with tanning.

"I haven't tanned since all this happened," she says. "I'm not banned from anything. I didn't go. I don't need to go."

Krentcil has become a national punchline since she publicly defended her parenting skills and her tanning practices. A hilariously burnt-orange Kristen Wiig poked fun at Krentcil on a Weekend Update segment of Saturday Night Live -- which Krentcil says she actually enjoyed.

But Krentcil is not amused by a Connecticut company's "Tanorexic Action Figure," which she thinks is awful.

"My attorney is dealing with it," she tells the Daily News. "They're making Barbie dolls. That's really funny. This is so stupid."
