"Tanning Mom" Patricia Krentcil has now officially had her moment in the sun: She's been lampooned on Saturday Night Live.
The joking around took place during the Weekend Update with Seth Meyers, when, in a trail of smoke, Kristen Wiig showed up at the news desk looking like Krentcil, the New Jersey mom who's pleaded not guilty to bringing her 6-year-old daughter into a tanning bed with her.
Expanding upon the real Krentcil's remarks to a reporter this week that critics of her look are "jealous," "fat" and "ugly," Wiig said, "Though I can't blame them for being jealous. I am alluring in a way they will never be."

That's one way to pass time during a two-hour awards ceremony.
The ladies of Bridesmaids enjoyed Sunday night's Screen Actors Guild Awards one sip at a time with a game they invented that honors a filmmaker who's no stranger to winning the top prize: Martin Scorsese.
Taking the stage with beverages in-hand to present their film, which was nominated in the outstanding cast category, Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph and Melissa McCarthy explained the rules to their drinking game of choice.
"You have to take a drink every time, and I mean every time, you hear the word 'Scorsese,' " McCarthy explained, a mini bottle of Grey Goose in her hands."You'd be surprised how much that comes up in just casual conversation because people like to throw that thing around."

Melissa McCarthy wants a second chance to make a good impression on Glenn Close.
The newly-minted Best Supporting Actress nominee joked that she'll be thinking more carefully about what to say to the Albert Nobbs star – a Best Actress nominee at this year's Oscars – should they cross paths again at the ceremony.
"I hope I can figure out something else to say to Glenn Close other than 'Holy s––– you're Glenn Close,' " McCarthy told PEOPLE after getting her Oscar news Tuesday morning. "I just think she makes beautiful, smart, perfect decisions in her characters and roles she plays. She looms very large to me."
The Bridesmaids star, who won an Emmy earlier this year for Mike & Molly, admits she was flustered when she first encountered Close at the Golden Globes but is planning ahead for Oscar night.
