Patricia Krentcil, the infamous New Jersey tanning mom, has made her way onto TV and into the hearts of people everywhere. But eventually this tanorexic woman's tan and star will fade, and we will have nothing more than YouTube videos and newspaper clips to remember her by. Luckily Herobuilders.com has stepped in and made a tanorexic action figure so that we can all have a little Patricia Krentcil in our lives.
For just $29.95 (equal to about a month of unlimited tanning) you can have your own tanorexic doll.
Emil Vicale, founder of Hero Builders, told NBC, Yes of course she inspired it. Why would I make something as hideous as this?
The doll has bright yellow hair, a bright orange face, a snarl on her lips and is wearing a black jacket and pants.
This is our first ugly doll, Vicale continued to NBC. Maybe this is a new genre for us!
Patricia Krentcil made headlines when she was accused of taking her 5-year-old daughter to a tanning booth where she suffered burns. The New Jersey woman was arrested and charged with second-degree child endangerment, to which she pleaded not guilty.
She firmly denies taking her daughter to the tanning salon, stating that the burns and rashes on her child were from the outdoor sun.
This whole thing has been blown out of proportion, she told The Today show. I'm not going to bring my little daughter into a 90 degree bed, I mean, that's not normal...It's traumatizing for a little girl who did nothing wrong but got a little sunburn.
Besides denying child endangerment, the tanorexic woman has also been caught in a name calling game.
There's somebody out there for my whole life that doesn't like me because they are jealous, fat and they're ugly, The Daily Mail reports Krentcil said.
The mom also responded to a comment made by Jersey Shore star Snooki. Snooki, who is also very tan and a mom-to-be, was quoted as saying that b**** is crazy. Krentcil voiced her comeback to TMZ, stating, She's the biggest a**hole in the world. She's fake, she's fat, her t*ts are take, she's disgusting.
