Patricia Krentcil is feeling the burn from tanning salons near her northern New Jersey home, with Planet Sun's eight locations reportedly banning the tanning mom from their premises.

"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 Krentcil, 44, who has pleaded not guilty to charges of child endangerment after allegedly taking her 6-year-old daughter tanning, says the ban doesn't matter – because she's on a tanning break.





"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."

The leathery Krentcil has become the butt of jokes nationwide, including a Saturday Night Live impersonation by Kristen Wiig – which Krentcil actually says she enjoyed.

Less amusing to her is a Connecticut company's new Tanorexic Action Figure. "My attorney is dealing with it," she tells the Daily News. "They're making Barbie dolls. That's really funny. This is so stupid."
